Gypcrete Plasters

GBIL has installed a 10 MTon/hour Fluidized Bed Rapidflow Calciner plant. Being a Calciner incorporating the Fluidized Bed technology, it produces the highest quality of gypsum plaster. It is generally accepted that beta plasters produced by conventional means (kettles, rotary kilns and the like) provide only relatively low strength plasters with high water take-up during setting. This is not the case with plaster produced from the Rapidflow Calciner.

The Rapidflow Calciner is based on the fluidised bed concept that differs significantly from other fluidised bed calciner designs. It uses a unique process that allows the introduction of hot gases into the fluidised bed in a completely controlled manner.

While other calciners produce over and under burn because of different expansion and contraction rates, Rapidflow plaster particles are calcined at exactly the right temperature.

The company intends to leverage on its excess plaster production capacity to produce different kinds of plasters and compounds.

GBIL's plaster products will include:

  • Plaster for Gypcrete wall panels
