Aggregate Production Line
Aggregate is the coarse particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregate production line involves several different techniques and stages such as extraction, crushing, processing, screening, and sand production etc. Aggregate manufacturing typically starts by blasting rock masses and is followed by a series of crushing stages.
Aggregate crushing plants are used to process sand, gravel and rock for specific markets. We provide aggregate production line and complete aggregate crushing plant for quarrying operations.
Complete Aggregate Crushing Process
Crushing is the first step of processing begins after the extraction from quarry or pit. Many of these steps also are common to recycled materials, clay, and other manufactured aggregates. The first stage in most operations is the reduction and sizing by crushing. Some operations, however, provide a step prior to crushing called scalping.
Aggregate crushing generally can be processed in three stages: primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushing. Each crushing stage produces different particle size according to end products applications. The major equipment in a primary crushing circuit usually includes only a crusher, feeder and conveyor. Secondary and tertiary crushing circuits have the same basic equipment items, along with screens and surge storage bin.
