Our Facilities & Equipment
Ginn Mineral Technology is a leader in mineral and metal analysis, testing, and research. With our state-of-the-art mineral lab, we are able to conduct extensive mineral research, define chemical dispersion, and perform in-depth analytical analysis. Ginn Mineral is proficient in sequestering minerals from industrial waste streams through careful analysis of the mineral composition.
Ginn Mineral excels in a variety of processing methods and also provides complete product manufacturing. Our pilot and production scale equipment is designed for flexibility and can function as complete systems for customizing any project. Thermal processing, toll processing, and toll manufacturing are all common processes executed on the pilot and production scale equipment.
The Mineral Lab
Our laboratory is designed to provide the fundamental testing and analysis of minerals including fillers and pigments. Key processing and product development measures allow for complete in-house project development. Mineral characterization, drill core testing, and final product application testing are all typical laboratory protocols. Our experienced staff of professionals understands the importance and accuracy of these tests and testing methods. A general scope of our testing and evaluation systems includes the following:
X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Viscosity Zeta Potential
X-ray Florescence (EDXRF) Abrasion Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
Particle Size and Distribution pH EDAX
Brightness and Color (L, a, b values) Conductivity Loss on Ignition (LOI)
The Pilot Plant
Pilot Plant Processing is defined as pounds per day up to a ton per hour.
