Aggregate crushing & processing

Aggregate crushing and processing involves the crushing, screening, and washing of materials such as gravel, sand, and rock to create aggregates for use in construction projects. Aggregates are essential components of concrete, asphalt, and other construction materials, and they are used in a variety of applications, including road construction, building construction, and landscaping.

Aggregate crushing and processing
The crushing process begins with the primary crushing of raw materials, which can be done using a variety of equipment, such as jaw crushers, impact crushers, or cone crushers. The crushed materials are then screened to separate them into different sizes, which can be used for different applications. After screening, the materials may undergo further crushing or be washed to remove any impurities before they are used in construction projects.

Aggregate processing plants are typically equipped with various types of equipment, including conveyors, feeders, and screens. The size and type of equipment used will depend on the type of aggregate being processed, as well as the specific requirements of the project. For example, some projects may require the use of specialized equipment, such as crushers with high reduction ratios, or screens with fine mesh sizes.

Aggregate processing is a critical step in the construction process, as the quality of the aggregates can have a significant impact on the durability and performance of the finished product. Therefore, it is important to carefully select the materials and equipment used in the process to ensure that the resulting aggregates meet the required specifications.

The aggregate production flow:
1.The blasted raw stones was hauled to the a stockpile by heavy duty truck;
2.The raw stones like granite, basalt, marble, limestone, cobble stone etc. will be fed into jaw crusher as primary crushing machine;
3.The crushed stones will be transferred to impact crusher for further processing;
4.According to the clients application, the crushed stone will be sieved into different grade by vibrating screen, or be transferred to cone crusher for fineness crushing;
5.After screening process, aggregate washing machine will be needed to clear away the dust and small particles.
