Volcanic is a types of rock formed from magma erupted from a volcano. It is different from other igneous rock by being of volcanic origin. Like many other types of rocks,volcanic rock is artificial, and in nature volcanic rocks grade into hypabyssal and metamorphic rocks and constitute an important element of some sediments and sedimentary rocks. For these reasons, in geology, volcanic and shallow hypabyssal rocks are not always treated as distinct. In the context of Precambrian shield geology, the term volcanic rock is applied to what are strictly meta-volcanic rocks.
Volcanic rocks are among the most common rock types on Earth's surface, particularly in the oceans. On land, they are very common at plate boundaries and in flood basalt provinces.
The processing operation involves a series of physical and chemical processes. These may occur at any time from excavation of the ore through production of the tuff rock in marketable form. Volcanic rock processing typically involves the mining of rock from either open pit orunderground mines; the crushing and grinding of volcanic rock; the separation of valuable minerals from matrixrock through various separation stages; and at some operations, the drying, calcining, or pelletizingof concentrates to ease further handling and refining etc.
In volcanic rock processing plant, the material will be first fed into different types of crushing machine for size reduction. If required, the crushed materials will be further grinded by grinding mills to produce fine powders, and prepare for following separation operation. Many different types of machinery will be involved in volcanic rock processing plant, such as crushing equipment, grinding mill, vibrating screen, belt conveyor, separation machine, classifier, beneficiation plant etc.
Volcaniccrushing operation in processing plant can be operated in three stages according to production requirements, including primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushing. Each crushing stages produce different particle size and connected by belt conveyor and vibrating screen. The crushing equipment for volcanic processing plant includes jaw crushers,impact crushers, gyratory crushers, cone crushers, vsicrushers etc.
In volcanic processing operations, the design and layout of crushing plants and auxiliary equipment and structures is a crucial factor in meeting production requirements while keeping capital and operational costs to a minimum. Here we will talk about the critical design factors as well as the consideration of ore characteristics, geographical location, climatic conditions, expected operational life, expansion potential, safety, environment, and operability and maintainability. There are three main steps in designing a good volcanic crushing plant: process design, equipment selection, and layout.
