Talc is a soft clay mineral with a Mohs hardness of 1. Chemically talc consists of hydrated magnesium silicate and it is won in mines all over the world. Broken chunks of talc from the mining plant are ground to a fine powder, also called talcum powder, for all further uses. Bauermeister Mills offer a wide range of mill setups, depending of the required particle size. Among other things, talcum is used as a thickening agent and filler for the plastics or paper industry. It is also a main constituent of cosmetic products, ceramics or baby powder as well as a common food additive.
Several Bauermeister mills are in operation for the grinding of Talc all around the world. Depending on the required product fineness and output rate an optimal combination of milling parameters is available. These can be determined in trial grindings in our Technology Center. The decision for one of the many different grinding plant variations depends on the general conditions as well as the requirements of the customer. Bauermeister specialists will gladly assist you in the assessment of these characteristics and help chose the correct mill and plant type that matches your requirements.
