Gilsonite created from crude oil after milions of years in high pressure
and temprature which is naturally-occurring mixture of bitumen and mineral
matter formed by oil seepages in the earth’s crust. Gilsonite in rock form
is available in Turkey border.The first it came from Caribbean country
Trinidad and Tobago and it was contenting 55% hydrocarbon and the rest
minerals. Initially this kind of material used as additive in road
construction.There is another origin which is coming from other city in
Hakkari Turkey. The hydrocarbon content is much higher than other
countries.Hydrocarbon content or bitumen content of this product from
Hakkari is first quality of Turkey and the purity comming up to 98%.
Generally it is mineral hydrocarbon of asphaltite class which is a black
solid of fairly bright luster and melts or fuses between 130 and 210C.It is
soluble in carbon disulfide, carbon tetrachloride and many other non-polar
organic solvent. The principal deposit of product is found in Hakkari of
Turkey as filling in vertical fissures in the mountain calcareous shales,
limestone and sandstones.
Since it is discovery,it has gained considerable commercial importance. The
company has the annual production to be well over eighty thousands tons
with a yearly income of nearly three million dollars for the province of
Hakkari. Considering these facts, it is easy to visualize the commercial
importance of this material.Turkey Gilsonite is substance composed
principally of complex hydrocarbons. They contain very little mineral mater
or oxygenated compounds, and are largely soluble in carbon disulphide.
These veins vary in width from several meter and to twenty meters, and vary
in length from a few kilometer to as much as thirty or forty km.
Some veins are believed to be fourteen hundred meter. It has been estimated
that Utah has a reserve supply of sixteen million tons of this are
available for commercial development.
Gilsonite packing
It is packed in 25Kg or 50lbs multi paper bag on pallet shrinked wrapped on
plastic or wooden pallet.On each pallet we can stuff 34 bag and 20 pallet
per 20ft container and 28.8MT per 40ft container.There is other way of bag
like jumbo bag 1000Kg or 25 and 50Kg polypropylene bag.The craft bag is
recyclable and most of oil companies ordering this type.
Gilsonite physical specification
It is very fragile. It shatters easily. Rolling the Gilsonite between two
drums tends to give the best particle distribution to use as raw material
in carbon production.
When we process the material from chunks to powder and then heating the
powder where we drive off the high value volatiles, we get much less
material, then we are able to supply volume quantity to our customer.
