Which Type of crusher is suitable for crushing Granite?
In mine crushing, granite is a common stone, and its uses are very wide range, so there are many granite crushing machines on the market, and the price is also very different.
We will recommend the most reasonable granite crushing equipment according to the characteristics of granite, Combined with Baichen crushing equipment.
Granite is a kind of igneous rock, also known as acid crystalline plutonic rock, which belongs to hard stone. It is made of feldspar, quartz, and a small amount of mica. Granite is dense and has a granular structure.
The main component of granite is silicon dioxide, which has a hardness of 6 to 7 according to Mohs hardness. Natural granite has different shapes and needs to be crushed to meet the demand for materials in various fields.
Application scenarios of granite
80-150 mm (gravel in over-large size): mainly used for large water conservancy and hydropower construction
40-80 mm (gravel in large size): mainly used for the construction of roads, road base, and railway
20-40 mm (gravel in medium size): mainly used for civil construction
5-20 mm (gravel in small size): mainly used for large concrete buildings
Under 5 mm (sand): used for various building and road construction projects.
Feeding size : ≤1200mm
Discharging size : 10-360mm
Capacity :1-1200 t/h
As the primary crushing equipment, the jaw crusher has a large crushing ratio, uniform discharge particle size, and a large adjustment range of the discharge port, which is convenient and reliable and can meet the needs of different customers.
The large crushing force and strong pressure resistance allow it to crush materials with compressive strength of 320 MPa.
Based on customer feedback， the Baichy granite jaw crusher has stable performance, a low failure rate, and long service life, which saves me a lot of operation and maintenance costs.
Feeding size : ≤350mm
Discharging size : 9-64mm
Capacity :45-1270 t/h
Cone crushers generally appear in crushing production lines as secondary crushing， Hydraulic overload protection device helps to remove iron and reduce downtime. The thin oil lubrication station is outfitted with a cooling system for better cooling performance.
Crushing cavities of standard or short heads are changeable through different mantles and bowl liners for better meeting users’ needs.
The cone crusher is equipped with a noise dilution device to reduce the noise generated during operation and protect the environment.
Based on customer feedback， the Baichy granite cone crusher has a good grain shape, which broadens my aggregate market and brings me many high-quality customers.
Of course, you can also choose a granite impact crusher
Feeding size: ≤700mm
Discharging size : 0-40mm
Capacity :37-800 t/h
The granite impact crusher has a compact structure, strong rigidity, safe operation, and reliable production, and is suitable for medium and fine crushing.
However, the hammerhead of the impact breaker and the impact breaker are easy to wear and tear, and the wearing parts need to be replaced frequently, but its structure is simple and it is relatively easy to replace.
Granite is also often used to make sand, so VSI sand making machines are also used
Feeding size : ≤50mm
Discharging size : 0-20mm
Capacity :60-600 t/h
The sand-making machine is the common equipment for making granite sand, and it can process granite into three kinds of aggregate products 0-5mm, 5-8mm, 8-12mm, and 12-15mm.
The granite aggregate processed by the sand-making machine has a solid shape, strong adhesion, and long durability, and is widely used in highways, railways, bridges, airports, real estate, and other fields.
If the material requirements are low, the jaw crusher and the cone crusher are required to crush the granite. Or else, the sand-making machine should be added for the final shaping of the material.
