Reply:               Dear Baron,
Thank you for your question!
a common mineral consisting of crystallized calcium carbonate; a major constituent of limestone. Limestone is widely used for building materials, industrial raw materials, is also the high-quality sand aggregate raw materials.
Limestone Mohs hardness of 3, belonging to the low hardness of the material, can use the configuration of "jaw crusher+impact crusher+sand making machine".
Jaw crusher is used for coarse crushing of limestone. Large pieces of limestone is crushed to medium size by it. The output size of jaw crusher is generally 10-30 cm.
Impact crusher is used for fine crushing of limestone. It can make the material to be further broken. After process by impact crusher, can get the crushed stone with the specifications of 0.5,1-2,1-3,2-4,3-8.
Then, we can use the sand making machine to shape the crushed stone. The final product of 1-5mm mechanism sand can be used in concrete mixing station, dry mortar, building, paving and other projects instead of natural sand.
This is the limestone aggregate production process. In addition to the host, also need vibration feeder, vibrating screen, sand washing machine and other ancillary equipment. liming Heavy Industry can provide a complete set of limestone process design and solutions.
