Granite Production Process
Granite is widely used in road-stone, building blocks. The main use of black granite is in tombstones and other monumental item and decorative application and so on. As the hardest building stone, granite products, such as granite slabs and granite titles, occupy great role in dimensional stones.
The principal characteristics of granite also include high load bearing capacity, crushing strength, abrasive strength and shaping without secondary flaws, ability to yield thin and large slabs.
The construction activity has witnessed rapid development during the last few decades and with the expansion in government and private construction activity, there is increased return on investment.
Granite production process
The successful project case from our customers is the best example for you to learn the whole granite production process. In the mine site, the first step is to remove blocks or pieces of stones from the deposit.
The process is relatively simple create breaks in the stone, remove the stone with heavy machine, secure the stone on a vehicle for transport and move the material to storage. However, the mining process is more complicated than the quarrying process. The first step of the granite processing is primary crushing the material with jaw crusher. A continuous stream of water over the crusher is required in order to dissipate heat generated by the process; sufficiently-elevated temperature can cause major machine and material damage.
Then through the conveyor the crushed granite is sent to impact crusher or cone crusher for the further processing. Whether the impact crusher or cone crusher is suitable, it is decided by the products’ demand and specifications. In the whole processing, vibrating screen and vibrating feeder play great role in transporting the materials.
