A cenosphere is a lightweight, inactive, hollow sphere occupied by inert air or gas, usually produced as a byproduct of coal combustion at thermal power plants. They are hollow microscopic balls which are made from smooth silica-aluminum and other minor elements of ceramic. Cenosphere exporter exports the cenosphere which is hard and rigid, in noxious, light-weighted, and insulative. Such qualities make them useful for a variety of products. They can be used as fillers in cement producing a low-density concrete. A quality cenosphere is produced from the burning coal in thermal power plant producing fly ashes which contain ceramic particles.
A variety of products where Cenospheres can be used:
Syntactic foam – cenosphere have been used as filler for syntactic foam providing lower cost, high-level of strength, sound proof, buoyancy and several thermal protections. A ‘syntactic’ is an ordered structure portion of the hollow space, whereas the ‘foam’ relates to the cellular nature of the cenosphere.
Petroleum drilling – the petroleum has been contacting the cenosphere exporter for so many years for reducing the density of a petroleum cement paste without even adding the water content.
Plastics and Polymers – the re-formable shape and strength of cenosphere forced manufacturers of plastics and polymers to use the fly ashes of the cenosphere to avoid shrinking of thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics.
Concrete – cenospheres has been using for concrete since so many years as it provides extra strength whilst lowering the density as they are capable of replacing some of the weight of the sand used in concrete. Cenosphere consists of density which is lower than the water, averaging cenosphere’s 0.7 vs. water’s 1.0, whereas the density of sand particles is about 2.65. Which means 1 pound of cenosphere takes up the same volume as about 3.8 lbs. of sand.
Pharmaceuticals – Cenosphere is occupied with inert air and gasses. Cenosphere exporter creates small balls from the cenospheres which are used for perfect transport device when coated with the drugs. Cenospheres when covered with silver oxide then can be integrated for dressing purposes in order to faster wound healing.
