Calcium Sulfate is a nontoxic inorganic salt. It exists in three levels of hydration: anhydrite (CaSO4), hemihydrate (CaSO4 . 1/2 H2O), and dihydrate (or gyosum - CaSO4 . 2 H2O). Gypsum and anhydrite deposits are found in many countries. By far the largest amount of byproduct gypsum is obtained from the production of wet phosphoric acid from phosphate rock and sulfuric acid. Gypsum is also produced produced from the desulfurization of combustion gases of fossil fuels. Calcium Sulfate anhydrite and hemihydrate undergo hydration under ambient conditions, converting into calcium sulfate dihydrate. Due to this, they are used as a desiccant and as a coagulant. In the ceramic industry, it is employed in the production of dishes, sanitary ware, and related products.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Calcium Sulfate production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
