BARYTE MINING IN TURKEY

WHAT IS BARIUM

The chemical element barium has the symbol Ba and the atomic number 56. It is a soft, silvery alkaline earth metal that is the sixth element in group 2. Barium is never discovered as a free element in nature due to its extreme chemical reactivity.
BARIUM USAGE

Metal and Alloys

Barium, as a metal or when alloyed with aluminium, is used to remove unwanted gases (gettering) from vacuum tubes, such as TV picture tubes.Barium is suitable for this purpose because of its low vapor pressure and reactivity towards oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water; it can even partly remove noble gases by dissolving them in the crystal lattice.

This application is gradually disappearing due to the rising popularity of the tubeless LCD and plasma sets.

BARIUM USAGE

Oil and Gas Drilling

The petroleum industry uses barium sulfate (the mineral baryte, BaSO4) as a drilling fluid in oil and gas wells. The compound's precipitate (known as "blanc fixe" in French) is used in paints and varnishes, as a filler in ringing ink, plastics, and rubbers, as a paper coating pigment, and in nanoparticles to improve the physical characteristics of certain polymers like epoxies.

See what is the baryte mining process

The baryte group consists of baryte, celestine (strontium sulfate), anglesite (lead sulfate), and anhydrite (calcium sulfate). Baryte and celestine form a solid solution (Ba,Sr)SO4.
