Mixing is essential at different stages when dealing with ceramic or cement slurries, to keep
the medium well homogenized in order to prevent product sedimentation.
PRO-DO-MIX have engineered different mixing technologies according to the specific
applications and products to be handled.
Ceramic Slurry, the so called “barbottina”, is a viscous compound of water, clay and
sometimes kaolin, used in the industrial production of ceramics. Specific gravity and viscosity
are quite high but can vary according to the percentage of products dosed in the compound.
Ceramic Glaze is a layer or coating of a vitreous substance which is then fused to a ceramic
body through firing. It can serve to color, decorate or waterproof a ceramic item. It generally
includes silica, which is the main glass former; metal oxides, such as sodium, potassium and
calcium; alumina; colorants, such as iron oxide, copper carbonate or cobalt carbonate, or
opacifiers, such as tin oxide or zirconium oxide.
Grout, or cement slurry, is a mixture of water and cement with possible presence of sand
and/or drilling mud; it may consist of sludge from soil washing (tank/cement mixer washing)
or homogenization in sludge storage / sludge suspension tank.
