Kitty Litter Boxes
A fellow ceramic engineer came to Lenox where I worked and told me how he got into the kitty litter business. There is a three-layered clay mineral called montmorillonite. As if you cared, the chemical formula is Na0.2Ca0.1Al2Si4O10(OH)2(H2O)10. The common name for this clay mineral is bentonite because it is mined in the Bentonite Range in Wyoming. It was named by Wilbur C. Knight in 1898 after the Cretaceous Benton Shale near Rock River, Wyoming.
We used bentonite at Lenox and it is used throughout the ceramic industry to add green strength (before fired strength) of ceramics.
My friend had developed cat litter from bentonite. It is very absorbent. When I use to work at Coors Porcelain in Golden, Colorado, we made ceramic pump plungers for pumping salt water out of oil wells. There they use bentonite as drilling mud. There are other uses in farming, gardening, medicine, etc.
Following are some kitty litter boxes and then kitty litter.
