Background: The four-component system CaSO4ËÂÂCaCO3ËÂÂCaF2ËÂÂH2O is a subsystem of more complex six-component system Na, Ca SO4,CO3,HCO3,FËÂÂH2O whose state of phase equilibria determines the conditions for utilization of liquid wastes of aluminum production. Aim: To investigate the solubility in the quaternary CaSO4ËÂÂCaCO3ËÂÂCaF2ËÂÂH2O system and construction of its solubility diagram at 50ÂºC. Methods: In the present work, the results of studying the quaternary CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system at 50Â°C using the solubility method, with the purpose of determining the concentration parameters at the position of its geometrical figures (fields, curves, points) and also establishing the ratio of crystallization fields of individual equilibrium solid phases are considered. Results: Due to the low solubility of salts under these conditions, which is accompanied by a shift of the position of the figurative points to the water angle, the concentration of water is in the ratio 1: 5.

In the present work, the results of studying the quaternary CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system at 50°C using the solubility method, with the purpose of determining the concentration parameters at the position of its geometrical figures (fields, curves, points) and also establishing the ratio of crystallization fields of individual equilibrium solid phases are considered. Earlier [1-5], phase equilibria in the investigated system were determined and its phase equilibria diagram at 50°C was constructed by means of translation method.
The three; CaSO4 • 2H2O - gypsum (Gyp); CaCO3 - calcite (Cal) and CaF2 - fluorite (Flo) solid phases are in equilibrium at 50ºC of the investigated system.
The following reagents were used for the experiments: CaSO4 • 2H2O (chemically pure); CaCO3 (pure); CaF2 (pure). The experiments were carried out according to solution saturation method .
The composition of saturated solutions of corresponding ternary invariant points in the three; CaCO3-CaF2-H2O; CaCO3-CaSO4-H2O and CaF2-CaSO4-H2O systems at 50°C were prepared in accordance with the literature data [7,8]. Then, starting from the scheme of translation of invariant points of ternary composition to the quaternary composition , the saturated solutions with the corresponding equilibrium solid phases, were mixed and thermostated at 50°C until the equilibrium was reached.
Thermostating was carried out in an ultratermostat U-8. Stirring of the mixture was carried out with a magnetic stirrer PD-09 for 60 hours. The temperature was maintained with an accuracy of ± 0.1°C by means of a contact thermometer. Crystallization of solid phases was observed with a POLAM - P 311 microscope. After reaching equilibrium in the system, the equilibrium solids were photographed with the digital camera SONY-DSC-S500. The state of equilibrium was determined by the invariance of phase composition of precipitates. The separation of the liquid and solid phases was carried out by means of a vacuum pump through a de-sulphated (blue tape) filter paper on a Buchner funnel. After filtration the precipitate was washed with 96% ethyl alcohol and dried at 120°C.

TABLE 1. Solubility at the invariant points of CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system at 50°C.
The decrease in the solubility of calcium sulfate in the system CaSO4-CaF2-H2O (point Е ), in comparison with its solubility in water (point e1), can obviously be explained by salting out effect of calcium fluoride in the given conditions.
On the basis of the obtained data a solubility diagram shown in FIG 2 for the CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system a t 50°C was constructed. The positions of the invariant points of ternary (Е) and quaternary (Е) compositions in the diagram, where n denotes the serial number of points, were established by the mass-centric method . Due to the low solubility of salts under these conditions, which is accompanied by a shift of the position of the figurative points to the water angle, the concentration of water is taken in the ratio 1: 5.
FIG 2: Solubility diagram of the CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system at 50 ° C: a) total; b) water part c) salt part.
FIG 2 shows the "total" (a) and "salt part" (b) of the solubility diagram of the CaSO4-CaCO3-CaF2-H2O system at 50 ° C, where the relative position and relative sizes of the crystallization fields of the corresponding equilibrium phases are reflected.
It follows FIG 2; at 50°С of the investigated four-component system, the crystallization field of fluorite (CaF2) and calcite (CaCO3) occupy significant parts of the solubility diagram, which characterizes the low solubility of these salts under the given conditions. Descriptions of content of geometric figures in FIG 2 are given in TABLE 2.

The decrease in the solubility of calcium sulfate in the system CaSO4-CaF2-H2O (point Е ), in comparison with its solubility in water (point e1), can be explained by salting out effect of calcium fluoride in the given conditions. Due to the low solubility of salts under these conditions, which is accompanied by a shift of the position of the figurative points to the water angle, the concentration of water is in the ratio 1: 5.
