Abstract
This Bureau of Mines report describes calcination of kaolinitic clay in a direct-fired 2 1/2- by 24-ft rotary kiln at 750 deg and 775 deg c. Methods for preparing kaolin feed materials and characterization of calcined products are discussed. Approximately 99 pct of the alumina in a typical eastern Georgia kaolin was soluble in hcl after calcination at either 750 deg or 775 deg c.
