  • Bentonite

    Bentonite is the commercial name of a whole range of natural clays with a high water absorption capacity causing it to expand and swell. Bentonite predominantly consists of montmorillonite: a clay mineral belonging to a class of phyllosilicates called smectites.

    21/05/2016· Bentonite is a natural clay containing clay minerals in the smectite group that was formed by devitrification of volcanic ash that fell into water (Eisenhour and Brown 2009). Bentonite was named after Fort Benton near Rock River, Wyoming, USA where it was originally found, by W.C. Knight in 1898. This clay has excellent swelling, adsorption, and colloidal properties. Because of these

    Gravimetrical measurement method was used to measure the swelling rate of the hydrogels. The water absorption amount Q (g/g) was calculated as follows: Q = m − m 0 1 − γ m 0 1 − γ, E1. where m 0 and m (g) are the weights of the dry and swollen sample, respectively, and γ is the water content of the hydrogel. Q was calculated as grams of water per gram of dry sample. The hydrophilic

  • Properties | Bentonite

    Swelling is mainly due to two factors: 1) water absorption at platelet surface level, and 2) osmotic repulsive forces, forcing platelets to detach and open up like a "stack of cards". Sodium bentonite, with sodium cation prevalence (Na+) allows water to penetrate through the platelets, forcing them apart, thus leading to swelling.

    Types Sodium bentonite. Sodium bentonite expands when wet, absorbing as much as several times its dry mass in water. Because of its excellent colloidal properties, it is often used in drilling mud for oil and gas wells and boreholes for geotechnical and environmental investigations. The property of swelling also makes sodium bentonite useful as a sealant, since it provides a self-sealing, low
