Summary of Process
Feed material may be glass frit, other dry particles or solutions containing the forming components
Compositions are typically soda lime silicates, sodium borosilicates, etc.
Feed must contain a blowing agent
A blowing agent is a material that decomposes and releases gas at elevated temperature
Commonly sulfur-containing compounds
Feed material is introduced into a flame at elevated temperatures (~1100-1400°C)
Gas released by the decomposition of the blowing agent causes particles or droplets to expand to hollow glass microsphere.

SRNL has developed an experimental apparatus for forming HGMs based on this technique.

Particles may enter the flame by:
Falling downward due to the force of gravity
An updraft may be used to control the residence time in the flame
Particles have a short residence time in the heated zone
Conducive to HGMs with smaller diameters
Ascending upward by a gaseous stream
Residence time in heated zone is longer
HGMs with larger diameters are produced

china glass bubbleFeed is introduced at the bottom of the furnace
A hot, gaseous stream carries the feed upward
Residence time within the hot zone of the furnace is a function of:
Particle mass
Upward velocity of the gas stream
Residence time is critical – just enough time to form a “tough outer skin”
Hollow sphere must then be removed at the point of maximum expansion and moved through regions of progressively diminishing temperatures
“Outer skin” cools and solidifies providing mechanical strength
The cyclone separates the HGMs from the gases
HGMs are produced with diameters of ~10 – 350 μm

Feed is introduced at the top of the heating chamber by a vibratory funnel
A “fluidizing agent” may be added to the particles to improve dispersion
The particles are transported to the flame by a carrier gas
Carrier gas further disperses particles
Particles fall though the flame front where fusion occurs
HGMs are cooled and separated from the gas mixture by a cyclone
HGMs are produced with diameters less than 125 μm

1.Hollow glass microsphere itself is inert without pollution. As a continuous medium, low density drilling fluid with addition of hollow glass microspheres was incompressible, and all wells are uniform in density. Sludge cakes formed have good lubrication, reducing the risk of sticking. It is technically infeasible for drilling large deviated wells and horizontal wells since the recycled micro-foam and air drilling technology can not deliver MWD signal. However, hollow glass microspheres have an irreplaceable advantage for it can not affect the system signal.

2.Hollow glass microspheres has a good rolling performance, and it can increase the drilling rate, and significantly improve the drilling efficiency.

3.Drilling fluid with hollow glass microspheres has feature of high temperature resistance, high pressure resistance, stability, durability, and can be recycled.

4.With the increase of low middle pressure layer, low-density slurry cementing with hollow glass microspheres were adopted to consolidate the wells to prevent or reduce leakage, increase the cement top. It plays a significant role in increasing the exploration reserves, improving single well production, and effectively developing underground oil and gas resources so as to solve complex problems.

Storage and Handling
To help ensure ease of storage and handling while maintaining free flowing properties, Hollow glass microspheres have been made from
a chemically stable glass and are packaged in a heavy-duty polyethylene bag within a cardboard container.
Minimum storage conditions should be unopened cartons in an unheated warehouse.
Under high humidity conditions with an ambient temperature cycling over a wide range, moisture can be drawn into the bag as the tem-
perature drops and the air contracts. The result may be moisture condensation within the bag. Extended exposure to these conditions
may result in “caking” of the hollow glass microspheres to various degrees. To minimize the potential for “caking” and prolong
the storage life, the following suggestions are made:
1.Carefully re-tie open bags after use.
2.If the polyethylene bag is punctured during shipping or handling, use this bag as soon as possible, patch the hole, or insert the
contents into an undamaged bag.
3.During humid summer months, store in the driest, coolest space available.
4.If good storage conditions are unavailable, carry a minimum inventory, and process on a first in/first out basis.
Dusting problems that may occur while handling and processing can be minimized by the following procedures:
1.For eye protection wear chemical safety goggles. For respiratory system protection wear an appropriate NIOSH/ MSHA approved resp-
irator. (For additional information about personal protective equipment, refer to Material Safety Data Sheet.)
2.Use appropriate ventilation in the work area.
3.Pneumatic conveyor systems have been used successfully to transport hollow glass microspheres without dusting from shipping cont-
ainers to batch mixing equipment. Static eliminators should be used to help prevent static charges.
Diaphragm pumps have been used to successfully convey hollow glass microspheres. Vendors should be consulted for specific recommendat-
The high-performance hollow glass microspheres breakage may occur if the product is improperly processed. To minimize breakage, avoid
high shear processes such as high speed Cowles Dissolvers, point contact shear such as gear pumps or 3-roll mills, and processing pre-
ssures above the strength test pressure for each product.

hollow glass microspheres

The high-performance hollow glass microspheres, a kind of ultra-light inorganic non-metallic powder with hollow “ball-bearing” shapes, have been developed into a new type of high performance lightweight material and have been widely applied in recent years. It will be the main direction for new-type compound materials in the 21st century. Its true density is 0.15-0.60 g/cm3; particle size is 5-180μm,and the crush resistance is beyond 60Mpa; Due to its excellent advantages of light weight, bulk density, lower thermal conductivity, higher compressive strength, improved dispersion and liquidity, and excellent chemical stability, it can be used as filler in painting, rubber, plastics, FRP, artificial stone, putty, exploitation of oil and gas and other materials.

The high-performance hollow glass microspheres are alternatives to conventional fillers and additives, such as silica, calcium carbonate, talc, clay, etc., for many demanding applications. These low-density particles are used in a wide range of industries to reduce part weight, lower costs and enhance product properties.

The unique spherical shape of hollow glass microspheres offers a number of important benefits, including: higher filler loading, lower viscosity/improved flow and reduced shrinkage and warpage. It also helps the hollow glass microspheres blend readily into compounds and makes them adaptable to a variety of production processes including spraying, casting and molding.

The chemically stable soda-lime-borosilicate glass composition of hollow glass microspheres provides excellent water resistance to create more stable emulsions. They are also non-combustible and nonporous, so they do not absorb resin. And, their low alkalinity gives hollow glass microspheres compatibility with most resins, stable viscosity and long shelf life.
