Quartz Crushing Operation
Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on Earth. It ranks a seven out of 10 on the Mohs scale, which determines the hardness of a mineral, which means that it can be very difficult to crush. Quartz is crushed in order to separate out gold deposits often found inside. The crushed mineral can also be used for other industrial refining applications.
The feeder or screens separate large boulders from finer rocks that do not require primary crushing, thus reducing the load to the primary crusher. The stone that is too large to pass through the top deck of the scalping screen is processed in the secondary crusher. Tertiary crushing is usually performed using cone crushers or other types of impactor crushers.
Quartz Crushing Plant
Quartz is a relatively hard mineral. The crushing can be processed in three steps to reduce the quartz material into small particle size for final application or further processing: primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushing.
