Abstract

Water absorption capacity  of   Irind  mine pumice depending on the particle size and absorption time is presented in the  paper.  Irind pumice  is an aluminosilicate rock, with well-developed porosity, mechanical strength, high buoyancy, chemically inert, eco-friendly and  exhibits sufficient water absorption capacities. The examination of the pumice by X-ray diffractometry has shown that it is a volcanic rock and is composed of cristobalite and coesite. The following particle sizes were selected for the study: 1.5… 2.0 mm, 2.5 ... 5.0 mm.  Water absorption capacity of pumice was determined depending on the absorption period. The maximum water absorption was  observed for particle  sizes ranging from 2.5 to 5.0 mm.
