Basalt Crushing Plant Layout and Price

Published time:12 October 2019


Basalt is a basic ejective rock with similar chemical composition to gabbro and SiO2 content of 45% ~ 52%. It is a natural ore with high hardness, strong compressive resistance.

Basalt application

Basalt has the advantages of strong pressure resistance, corrosion resistance, and good asphalt adhesion. It has been internationally recognized as a high-quality construction material for roads, railways and airport runways.
Basalt is also a good quality aggregate for lightweight concrete in high-rise buildings. Due to its many pores and hard characteristics, it can be blended into concrete to reduce the weight of concrete, but it is also strong, but also has sound insulation and heat insulation. And other advantages, favored by the major building materials market.
Basalt aggregate making is a very popular and promising industry.

How much does it cost to invest in basalt processing?
What is the equipment used in the basalt crushing production line? how much is it?
It is a topic that every investor is very concerned about. This article is for the basalt crushing production line configuration and quotation, for everyone to come together.

The basalt has a high hardness and a high silicon content, it is difficult to break and fine crush. In other words, hard materials cause more wear and tear on the crusher than fragile materials, which greatly increases the cost of basalt crushing. Generally, the crushing process of basalt is divided into three stages: coarse crushing, medium crushing, and fine crushing (sand making).

Coarse crushing

The large basalt is uniformly conveyed by the vibrating feeder to the jaw crusher for coarse crushing. After the coarsely crushed material is sieved by the vibrating sieve, it is transported by a belt conveyor to a impact crusher or a cone crusher for fine crushing.

Basalt coarse crushing equipment recommended: jaw crusher (1-2200 t/h). The jaw crusher has a large feed port, deep crushing chamber, simple structure, convenient installation and operation, and is suitable for primary coarse crushing.

Based on the basalt material properties, adopting laminating crusher can reduce wear. The jaw crusher and hydraulic cone crusher use the lamination principle.

Medium crushing

Basalt medium crushing equipment recommended: impact crusher & cone crusher.
Impact crusher has a lower price, uniform discharge, less needle-like crushed product.
The cone crusher is slightly more expensive, but the wearing parts have a long life. In the long run, the cone crusher is more durable.

Fine crushing ( sand making )

Basalt fine crushing machine: VIS sand making machine, HX sand making machine, has a high stone crushing rate, high sanding rate, good finished grain shape.
If you need clean sand finish products, use the sand washing machine for cleaning and dewatering.

In summary

sand making machines

Most basalt processing plants adopt a three-stage crushing process to reduce overall operating costs.
1. Medium-small scale crushing plant, usually adopts ” two-stage jaw crusher +sand making machine “. primary jaw crusher and secondary jaw crusher can reduce the basalt size to below 60mm, third stage sand making machine to make the grain shape better.

2. Large scale crushing plant, usually adopts a ” jaw crusher + cone crusher + sand making machine ” layout. Cone crusher has lower wear cost, but need higher invest.

3. As for the basalt crushing production line with less strict grain size requirements, the third-stage crusher can be canceled.
Although the grain size is poor and the proportion of the needle-shaped stone is high, the running cost and the investment cost can be greatly reduced. Of course, the price of sandstone with poor grain size will be lower. As a railway track meteorite, it is generally not necessary to configure a counter-attack.
