Aggregate Processing Plant
Aggregate is the stone material used to construct buildings, roads, and other infrastructure. It is one of the main components of engineering materials such as concrete, asphalt concrete (also known as hot-mix asphalt), railway ballast, and roadbed. Aggregate is obtained from natural ore through crushing, screening, and washing. Common aggregate types include Coarse Aggregate (particle size>5mm), Sand (0.06mm<particle size<5mm), Gravel (5mm<particle size<20mm), and Slag.
Aggregate Processing Plant Process
Aggregate processing plants include feeding systems, crushing sand systems, screening & sorting systems, and sand washing systems.
1. Feeding System
The raw materials and processed aggregates are conveyed during the processing to ensure the continuity of the production line. Conveying equipment includes conveyor belts, bucket elevators screw conveyors, vibrating feeders, etc. A vibrating feeder is commonly used to deliver raw materials to the crushers and vibrating screening equipment in the gravel aggregate processing plant.
2. Crushing Sand System
The crushing system is the process of crushing the raw materials. Common crushing equipment includes jaw crushers, impact crushers, cone crushers, hammer crushers, sand-making machines, etc. The jaw crusher is used for primary crushing. The sand-making machine is used to crush and shape the materials finely
3. Screening & Sorting System
Screen the crushed stones and sands to different particle size grades according to the needs. The common screening equipment includes vibrating screens, rotary vibrating screens, and drum screens.
4. Sand Washing System
The sand washing system removes impurities and soil in the stone to improve the aggregate quality. Sand washing equipment usually includes sand washing machines and dehydrators.
