Quartz Lumps

quartz Granules | quartz Powder


TMM India has own quartz mines and we can supply quartz lumps directly from the mines of any specific lump size required by the client. Our quartz lumps are of high purity and we can also supply lumps size from 20 mm to 400mm washed and cleaned of any impurities. Quartz lumps are used for manufacturing of ramming mass and other industrial products by many companies around the world.

Silica lumps are used in Glassmaking, Metal Casting, metal Production, Chemical Production, Construction, Paint & Coating, Ceramics & refractories, filteration & water production, oil and gass recovery,

Uses of Quartz lumps

Quartz is used in various Industries as main Product and also as filler. Following are the Industries where it is used:

  1. Glass Industries– Quartz powder is used in the production of container glass, flat plate glass, specialty glass, and fiberglass.
  2. Quartz as Abrasive – Quartz powder and finely ground silica sand are used for sand blasting, scouring cleansers, grinding media, and grit for sanding and sawing.
  3. Foundary-it can be used for the molds and cores of common foundry work. Refractory bricks are often made of quartz powder because of its high heat resistance. Quartz sand is also used as a flux in the smelting of metals.
  4. Oil & Gas Industries – In the petroleum industry, sand slurries are forced down oil and gas wells under very high pressures in a process known as hydraulic fracturing. This high pressure fractures the reservoir rocks, and the sandy slurry injects into the fractures. The durable sand grains hold the fractures open after the pressure is released. These open fractures facilitate the flow of natural gas into the well bore.
  5. Paints – Used as Filler.
  6. Water Purification – Water is passed through Quartz Wall.
  7. Ramming Mass – Used as Plastering Component.
