Gypsum Power Production Line
When you think of a “power plant,” you probably picture large buildings with tall smokestacks emitting great billows of pollution. But did you know that power plants don’t have to be that way? A growing number of power plants are using gypsum as fuel, producing zero pollution and creating no greenhouse gas emissions.
The gypsum powder production line is the integral equipment in the gypsum power plant, used to produce gypsum powder by crushing and screening the gypsum stone. The gypsum production line includes a jaw crusher, impact crusher, vibrating feeder, belt conveyor, cyclone separator, air blower, and other machines.
In recent years, the percentage of power generation from fossil fuels has been on the decline. A number of factors have contributed to this, including climate change concerns and the increasing costs of maintaining old facilities. Gypsum is one alternative fuel that is gaining in popularity.
Gypsum is a soft, white powdery substance known as calcium sulfate dihydrate. It’s primarily used in construction as an ingredient in plaster walls, ceilings, and other building materials. The production process for gypsum starts with limestone, which dissolves into a liquid solution when it comes into contact with acid. This liquid can be used to generate electricity by mixing it with air and running it through a turbine generator.
A typical home uses four sheets of drywall for interior walls and three sheets for exterior walls, so production plants have to produce about 400-500 sheets of drywall per day for one shift just to keep up with customer demand.
Converting the calcined gypsum into drywall is done by adding other chemicals to it and allowing it to dry. This creates a hard block of material that can be used as building materials in place of wood or metal.
