Characterization of Okpilla Feldspar Deposit for Glass and Ceramic Production

B. A. Ajayi, S. S. Owoeye

In this work, the characterization of Okpilla feldspar deposit in Edo State, Nigeria was carried out with the view of finding its suitability for glass and ceramics production. The Chemical Analysis, Mineralogical Analysis, Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA), and the Loss on Ignition (LOI) were carried out using XRF and Rational Analyses, XRD, and DTA furnace respectively. Glass batch and ceramic body (ornamental ware) were composed with the feldspar to determine its suitability for glass and ceramic production. The chemical analysis shows the feldspar deposit is a potash feldspar with 10.40 % K2O. From the various analyses it is concluded that the Okpilla feldspar is suitable for the production of glass and ceramic bodies.
