There is no doubt that making sand became a very profitable project. In recent years, as various efforts to combat illegal sand mining have been strengthened, the price of aggregates soared. You must have never imagined that the price of sand was about 30 to 40 RMB a ton in the past few years, but now it has raised to 100 RMB. So there is a phenomenon where unscrupulous developers use sea sand instead of river sand. As we all know, sea sand possesses high salt content, which will corrode concrete and seriously affect the quality of project.
So now many companies have paid attention to the manufactured sand. You can produce it directly as long as you have enough raw materials and equipment. Let's guess how profitable making sand can make. Calculated by small and medium aggregates plant（capacity: 2,000 tons per day）:
1.Raw material cost
It refers to all kinds of stones used in sand making, such as granite, limestone, marble, etc. The prices of different stones are different.
Most sand making equipment currently uses power with oil and electric. This two different energy consumption has different input costs.
The price of industrial electricity in each region is different. In China, for example, electricity bill in Shenzhen is between 1-1.14 RMB, Jiangsu is between 0.8-1 RMB, and in Henan province, is about 1.
The fuel consumption of different sand making machines is different. In China, the current price of diesel is between 5-6 RMB.
Affected by the COVID-19, although the resumption of work in construction has been delayed and the price of aggregates has continued to fall, however, it is still at a high level compared to the first quarter of last year.
According to the statistics of CAN (ChinaAggregatesNet, www.caggregate.com), the Chinese average price of manufactured sand in April was 99.37 RMB / ton.
Calculated at 100 RMB per ton, to produce one ton of machine-made sand, excluding raw materials, power consumption, water consumption and labor costs, the net profit is at least 50 RMB.
Therefore, for plant with daily output of 2000 tons, it's absolutely profitable!
How to configure a sand making machine with a daily output of 2,000 tons?
We all know, in addition to sand making machine, there is other equipment in a complete sand making plant. A 2,000 THD sand making plant belongs to a middle scale plant. For this kind of plant, we have summarized several equipment combinations for your reference:
Option 1: For processing medium-hard stones such as limestone and dolomite
Configuration: ZSW vibrating feeder, PE jaw crusher, VSI6X sand maker, S5X vibrating screen*2
The scheme includes coarse crushing. Generally, it can crush stones with size less than 30 cm. If the particle size of raw materials is too large, user can consider replacing fine jaw crusher with a hammer crusher, or adding a coarse jaw crusher before the fine jaw crusher.
Option 2: For processing hard stones such as river pebble, basalt and granite
Configuration: ZSW vibrating feeder, PE jaw crusher, HST single-cylinder cone crusher, VSI5X sand making machine, Y series vibrating screen
Because of the high hardness of this kind of ore, only using jaw crusher will be less efficient. Now we adopt the combination of "jaw crusher + cone crusher" will be more efficient.
The above is the detailed calculation of how profitable the sand making plant of 2,000 tons per day is. Want to know more information about crushing equipment and scheme, please contact us online or leave your contact in form, we will have professional answer you timely.
