US3737333A - Method for processing kaolin clay - Google ...

In the wet processing of kaolin clay, the clay crude is initially deflocculated (dispersed) with a synthetic watersoluble salt having an organic polymeric anion. The deflocculated clay then undergoes further processing, including fractionation, floccing with an agent which must include alum, bleaching, filtration, rinsing and re-deflocculation.

Kaolin: processing, properties and applications ...

Sep 01, 1991  There are two basic methods of processing kaolin, a dry method or a wet process (Guillet and Kriens, 1984). The dry method is called air flotation which separates the clay from contaminants. The wet method produces water washed clay where the clays are fractionated, beneficiated or otherwise modified from their orig- inal state.
