Hematite is a common mineral in the crust and has a lot of mines over the world with general formula Fe2O3, and is useful for many industries specially in drilling as high density mineral for using in drilling mud and according to it lower price compare with other mineral, it is the primary substance of lots of other productions. As result, this is the most important mineral of iron ore which has different types and specifications that mention in following.

Hematite Types

Hematite usually seen in red color for it powder and in silver for it ore and it uses in variable industries a lot which for every of them it has different component like purity, meshing, density and other items. According to it expanded usages, our company has the big share of universal market with having multiple mines and factories of this important mineral.

Hematite Packing

Hematite by considering it usages and grades, has different and expanded packing types which starting from 15 kg plastic bags on wooden pallets till 1 ton jumbo bags and refers to customer request, it is ready to export in everywhere of the world in the least possible time. production packing supplying by our company with standard packing list, guaranteed to send for it safety and easy shipment.

Applications of Hematite

Hematite has expanded applications in different industries which one of the boldest, we can mention drilling which it uses as matter for making drilling mud in water based drilling and as result our company put this mineral as one of the basic goods to produce and export to the universal markets. this mineral also has application in other multiple fields like: welding electrode, purifier for oxide of iron, iron smelting industry, isolated walls against radioactive and X-ray and lots of more fields which it special this product is supplying by us.

Hematite Specification

Hematite mostly is made from iron compounds somehow about 90 to 95 percent of this mineral is Fe2O3 and remain of it is some compounds like SiO2, so that according to its main element (Fe), the color of it powder is red and also it has high density, typically between 4.8 to 5.1 and melting temperature about 950 centigrade degrees. this production by having variable purity and bulk diameter usually between 0.5 to 5 micro meter and some other specifications is available in any types for customer and ready to load and send to every spot in the world by ATDM company.


HEMATITE features a relative density of >5.05, that is nineteen larger than the density of barite (4.1). Thus, for a given mud weight, a system weighted with hematite can contain fewer solids by volume. A lower solids concentration can contribute to improved earth science properties, improved penetration rate and minimized overall mud prices.
