Texture: clastic (only noticeable with a microscope).
Grain size: very fine-grained (< 0.06mm); clasts not visible to the naked eye.
Hardness: generally quite soft, but can be hard and brittle.
Colour: variable - black, white, grey, brown, red, green, blue etc.
Clasts: generally a mixture of clay minerals with any or all of quartz, feldspar (orthoclase, plagioclase), mica (biotite, chlorite, muscovite); can contain iron oxides (cause red or yellowish colouring); black colouring due to carbonaceous content and / or pyrite.
Our mudstone crusher machine working process are as follows:A number of lithofacies are identified based on textures/mineralogy from this section, geochemical variations and total organic carbon content. Mudstones deposited closer to the sediment supply have a higher proportion of silt-sized clasts which is reflected in higher average SiO2 (ca. 52%) compared to 45.56% SiO2 in a more distal location.Our mudstone crusher machine have exported to the worldwide countries such as America, Italy, Turkey , Australia , Singpore, Indonesia, Vietnam , Iran, India, Chile, Venezuela, Libya, Angola, Kenya, South Africa, Pakistan.
This finely bedded material that splits readily into thin layers is called shale, as distinct from mudstone. The lack of fissility or layering in mudstone may be due either to original texture or to the disruption of layering by burrowing organisms in the sediment prior to lithification. Mud rocks, such as mudstone and shale comprise some 65% of all sedimentary rocks. Mudstone looks like hardened clay and, depending upon circumstances under which it was formed, it may show cracks or fissures, like a sun-baked clay deposit. They can be separated into these categories.We recommend you our ball grinding mill ,vertical roller mill,raymond grinding mill, trapezium mill to process the mudstone. Our mudstone grinding mills are used to process limestone , basalt, chrome , dolomite, feldspar, fluorite, kaolin ore, marble , granite , iron ore ,copper ore.
