Silica from Rice Husk Ash (RHA)
MILLTEC as the market leader has always been striving for continuous improvement to serve customers better and provide good value for their money. Disposal of rice husk is one of the major challenges faced by millers all over India. India produces around 25 million tons of rice husk every year. Burned rice husk also known as rice husk ash (RHA) is a great environmental threat causing damage to our surroundings and drinking water. But the good part is RHA contains 25% amorphous silica which has widespread application in various industries.
As an expansion and diversification strategy, MILLTEC is glad to introduce to millers high efficiency silica extraction plants from rice husk ash. The equipment for the extraction plants are indigenously designed and manufactured at MILLTEC as per the requirement of the customers. Silica is extracted based on batch processing and MILLTEC offers millers batch processing plants of 2 Tons per day silica extraction capacity.
Along with silica we can also extract byproducts like activated carbon and sodium carbonate from RHA which are used as raw materials in filtration industry and detergent manufacturing respectively.
