Machinery in Silica Sand Manufacturing Process

Machinery in Silica Sand Manufacturing Process

The raw materials for processing silica sand generally are extracted from open pits of naturally occurring quartz-rich sand and sandstone. The mined rock is transported to the processing site. The material then is crushed. According to the degree of cementation, three stages of crushing may be required to produce the desired size reduction. Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, roll crushers, impact mills and cone crushers are used for primary and secondary crushing.

After crushing, the size of the material is further reduced to 50 micrometers or smaller by grinding, using ball mill, raymond mill, autogenous mills, hammer mills, or ultrafine mills. The ground material then is classified by wet screening plant, dry screening machine, air classification machine, and dried by drying plant. We provide high quality silica sand processing machinery in Malaysia.

Silica Sand Milling Machine

Silica sand, the main raw material used to make cement, goes through a milling process producing various tiny granules. These various-sized silica sand grains pass through a vibrating sieve and get separated into different grades, each grade used for a specific type of cement, concrete or mortar product. Portland cement uses about 25 percent silica sand to make concrete and mortar for civil engineering projects and modern buildings

.

Milling plant is important machinery in silica sand manufacturing process. Zenith provides complete range of silica milling machine, such as ball mill, vertical roller mill, ultrafine mill, high pressure mill etc. The milling machine eatures competitive price, high efficiency, low energy consumption, reliable operation, easy maintenance etc.

Silica Sand Application

Silica sand is made from weakly cemented sandstones. Silica sand is white once it is produced. It is known for being a very pure and fine form of manufactured sand. The sand can be manufactured to meet various size requirements. When silica sand is being produced, it goes through four stages before it is complete. The sand is washed, sieved, attritioned and dried. Silica sand is used throughout the world in industrial processing, especially in the production of concrete.
