Bulk materials are also essential in manufacturing electronic products and are majorly associated with dry engineering materials.
Common End Products
Standard Electric products produced using bulk ingredients and tools are:
- Bus bars
- Fuse links
- Graphite Electrodes
- EMI filters
Bulk Material Characteristics
The characteristics are based on texture, type, size, and form.
Materials are usually rough, capable of causing damage by grinding or rubbing against something.
Depending on their form, materials tend to cause particles therein to become airborne due to stimulus.
Some are capable of absorbing moisture from the surrounding atmosphere
Also, they tend to fluidize and their flow is characterized by unpredictability
Common Bulk Materials Handled
Below are everyday Electronic Products bulk materials that are usually handled.
- Bentonite Clay
It is an absorbent swelling clay consisting mainly of montmorillonite. The main uses of bentonite are in the drilling mud and as a binder, purifier, absorbent, and carrier for fertilizers or pesticides. As of around 1990, almost half of the US production of bentonite was used as drilling mud. Minor uses include a filler, sealant, and catalyst in petroleum refining. Calcium bentonite is sometimes marketed as fuller earth, whose services overlap with other forms of bentonite.
- Coal Tar Pitch
Coal tar is a thick dark liquid that is a by-product of coke production and coal gas from coal. It has both medical and industrial uses.
- Petroleum coke
This is abbreviated as coke or pet coke, is a final carbon-rich solid material that derives from oil refining. It is a valuable and essential commercial product used directly in a wide range of applications, including aluminium manufacturing, fuels, and numerous other products, including steel, glass, paint, and fertilizers.
Other common bulk materials include carbon black, Carbon fibre, polycarbonate, graphite, cellulose, nickel, PVC chips, etc.
