Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2011003777A1] The invention relates to a method for producing a highly pure quartz granulate. The aim of the invention is to provide a method by means of which a highly pure quartz granulate can be produced from a natural quartz raw material. According to the invention, this aim is achieved by a method in which the following process steps are performed: - washing a natural quartz raw material in the form of coarsely crushed pieces, - mechanical comminution of the pre-crushed pieces, - further comminution of the pieces to a grain size of less than 0.5 mm by means of high-voltage discharge pulses, - flotation for separating out foreign minerals, and – chemical treatment for further depletion of foreign elements.
