The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of mechanical activation on the phase change of the zeolite composition of the Hekimhan region which is located in the northern of the Malatya Basin in Eastern Anatolia.Planetary mill was used for this study at different speeds and times. The laboratory experiments had shown that the microcrystalline moganite was formed at 450 rpm and 180 min and 540 rpm and 120 min, depending on the time and milling speed. Characterization studies of the zeolite and moganite (450 rpm/180min and as well 540 rpm/120 min) have done by XRD(X – Ray Diffraction), SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) images and FT – IR (Fourier – Transforms Infrared Spectroscopy).
