Chert is formed by chemical or biological chemistry and silica can be regarded as the main rock forming elements of sedimentary rock. It contains SiO2 above 80%, often can reach more than 95%. Chert, the sedimentary rocks of silica as the main component of rock, is also known as the flintlock rock. The main mineral composition is authigenic quartz, chalcedony and opal. Chert can be divided into three categories: biological siliceous rocks, chemical siliceous rocks and tuff siliceous rocks.
Chert has a variety of industrial applications. With its high hardness, flint can be used for grinding raw material and the siliceous refractory; Jade also can be used as fret stone for a rigid compact and beautiful color. Due to the strong adsorption, diatomaceous earth is widely used in daily chemical industry, the sugar industry, and water purification and other various departments. Volcanic activity can improve the silica content in the sea, and it also is the main source of silicon in the siliceous rocks.
The chert process plant is realized through the chert mining processing plant. SBM can offer all the desired machines involved in the plant to all the customers. Through crushing equipment, grinding machine and gravity separator and the beneficiation machine, the whole mining process will be completed. Among of the whole processing plant, crushing and grinding stages will help to get the large scale chert raw materials into fine powder.
The chert processing involves a series of crushing, screening and grinding stages designed to produce material with a specified range of sizes. In the chert quarry, the primary crusher first roughly crushes raw chert material; secondary crushers then reduce these size and tertiary crushers produce the final size and shape of aggregate products. Crushed materials are sized by passing over various screens and classifiers. To get the further ultrafine size materials, the grinding equipment plays important role in the whole process. As we all know, there involves a lot of other undesired materials in the mineral. It needs the beneficiation machine to separate these materials. With screens and classifier, the undesired materials will be separated from aggregates.
Impact crusher is designed for the hard and brittle material. Depending on chert's physical property, impact crusher can be used in the fine crushing stage. SBM impact crusher features a unique combination of heavy rotor design, wear material and crushing chamber design. This combination has proved revolutionary in improving capacity, product quality and in reducing operating and wear costs. Our impact crusher has been designed to minimise maintenance and improve all adjustment operations. Chert impact crushers deliver unbeatable performances in primary, secondary, tertiary and recycling applications.
To make impact crusher have a longer service life, the wear parts play great role. The original wear and spare parts gives you the best value of production. Chert impact crusher certified wear parts are to improve your crushing capacity and give reliability in your production. Right tolerances, dimensions, functionality and endurance combined with correct work methods guarantees the best results for your process and long lifetime for your machine.
Our extensive technical support reaches from repairs and retrofits to performance improvement, and the fluency of your chert process can be boosted by our process optimization services and staff training. Our research projects focus on improving our customers' core processes and on developing the wear and spare parts and services.
Chert is used as powder in the further production line. The grinding ball mill is the best choice. Chert ball mill may operate in either open or closed circuit and with or without a pre-grinder to achieve maximum overall grinding efficiency and high flexibility in terms of product quality. The mill has large through-flow areas, which allows it to operate with large volumes of venting air and a low pressure drop across the mill. Hence the energy consumption of the mill ventilation fan is low. The mill consists of standard modules and can be adapted to specific requirements in terms of plant layout, mill drive, lining types and end product specifications, as required.
