Garnets are a Silicate group of minerals. Garnet produced at two mineral separation plants is Almandine Garnet [Fe3Al2(SiO4)3]. Major grades produced are Coarse grade (30-60 mesh), Normal grade (60-100 mesh) and Medium grade (50-100 mesh)
Garnet is used:
* As abrasive for sandblasting for descaling of vessels and surface preparation.
* In water jet cutting for a precision cutting job.
* As abrasive in grinding wheels.
* As medium for water filtration.
