PURIFICATION OF PHOSPHOGYPSUM FOR USE AS CEMENT RETARDER BY SULPHURIC ACID TREATMENT
Keywords:2.10.3, 3.7.3, 3.3.2
Phosphogypsum is a by-product of the wet phosphoric acid production. In this study, chemical compositions of phosphogypsum waste (PG) in Hai Phong diammonium phosphate plant (DAP1) and Lao Cai diammonium phosphate plant (DAP2) in Vietnam were surveyed for the purpose of gypsum recovery by P2O5, F removal to meet TCVN11833 for use treated gypsum as cement retarder. Studies of impurities P2O5, F, TOC removal by sulfuric acid 10 % at 28 0C was presented. The results found that the combination of a low concentration of sulfuric acid treatment, washing, lime neutralizing, and thermal treatment was successful in Phoshogypsum treatment for use as cement retarder. The cement test proved that treated PG could partially replace natural gypsum as a retarder.
