Chemically recognized as “calcium sulfate dihydrate,” gypsum comprises sulfur, calcium bound to oxygen and water. It is an ample mineral and takes shapes with alabaster—a substance utilized in construction and decoration since the age of earliest Egypt. This non-toxic mineral is helpful to animals, humans, plant life, and the atmosphere. While most of gypsum formed in North America is utilized to produce gypsum board or building plasters.
Two kinds of Gypsum: Natural and FGD
Natural gypsum, ensues in sedimentary rock constructions, and is found in approximately 85 nations. Canada, The United States and Mexico have some of the major reserves of superior-quality gypsum. 100 pounds of gypsum rock comprises about 21 pounds of chemically collective water. This rock is quarried or mined, ground or crushed into a fine powder. In a procedure known as calcining, the powder is heated to about 350 degrees F, pouring off 3/4th of the chemically collective water. The mined or calcined gypsum, or hemihydrate, converts into the base for gypsum board, gypsum plaster, and other gypsum goods.
Flue-Gas Desulfurization (FGD) gypsum is widely used to make gypsum board for greater than 30 years. A remaining product of desulfurization of flue gas from masses of fossil-fueled electricity plants, discharges captured from smoke masses can be cleansed into a hard material and industrialized into gypsum. Today, practically half of all gypsum utilized in the United States is FGD gypsum. FGD gypsum and Natural gypsum have the similar chemical structure, they are calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4·2H2O).
