Sorry, no etymologies found.
Although complicated and requiring expensive equipment (filter press, blunger, agitator, diaphragm pump) this prepares reliable body that works with any suitable body composition. spray drying
In large factories, each raw material is ground separately and then mixed in a blunger according to its slop weight.
By blunging the clay, especially in a high-speed blunger, these lumps can be broken down.
The blunger shown at fig. stirs the clay slip by rotating two sets of blades at 17 rpm (rotations per minute), and blunging time for ball clay is more than 10 hours.
Old loudspeaker magnets suspended in the blunger are adequate. filterpress: The clay slip contains about 50% water when being screened, and half of that must be removed before the clay has the right consistency for forming.
Alternatively, the raw clay can be washed in a high speed blunger as described on page 27. 2.
The clay slip is then screened through 60 or 100 mesh, other screened materials like talc or feldspar are added, the slip is thoroughly stirred, and in order to ensure a uniform mixing the slip is screened again. blunging: Where electric power is available, a high speed blunger is used.
A high speed blunger with a single shaft propeller (fig. 27-2) cuts blunging time to 1-2 hours and is now replacing the slower type. screening and de-magnetizing: After blunging, the clay slip is screened through a fine mesh screen (80-150 mesh per sq. inch).
A coarse screen fitted to the ball mill holds back the pebbles while the clay slip is poured out and led to a blunger through wooden troughs. blunger: In the blunger (mixing ark) plastic sedimentary clay
It consists of two balls - the quaffle for scoring and the blunger for throwing at opponents like a dodge ball.
