Dolomite is a carbonate mineral composed of calcium magnesium carbonate. Dolostone (dolomite rock) is
composed predominantly of the mineral dolomite with a stoichiometric ratio of 50% or greater content of magnesium replacing calcium, often as a result of diagenesis. Limestone that is partially replaced by dolomite is referred to as dolomitic limestone.
Dolomite is used as an ornamental stone, a concrete aggregate, a source of magnesium oxide and in the Pidgeon process for the production of magnesium. It is an important petroleum reservoir rock, and serves as the host rock for large strata-bound Mississippi Valley-Type (MVT) ore deposits of base metals such as lead, zinc, and copper. Where calcite limestone is uncommon or too costly, dolomite is sometimes used in its place as a flux for the smelting of iron and steel. Large quantities of processed dolomite are used in the production of float glass.
In horticulture, dolomite and dolomitic limestone are added to soils and soilless potting mixes to lower their acidity and as a magnesium source. Home and container gardening are common examples of this use.
Dolomite is also used as the substrate in marine (saltwater) aquariums to help buffer changes in pH of the water.
Dolomite medium speed mill machine and Raymond mill:
Our dolomite grinding mills include Raymond mill, HGM medium speed mill machine (HGM80/ HGM90/ HGM100/ HGM100/HGM125). Raymond mill is the vertical grinding mill, which is popular in many countries and has very long history. HGM medium speed mill machine is special for super thin grinding. You can choose suitable dolomite mill machine depends on your dolomite size, hardness, capacity and your cost budget.
