Definition of stone crushing plant
A stone crushing plant is one-stop crushing installation, it is used for rock crushing, stone crushing, river gravel crushing, etc. Crushing plants may be either stationary or mobile. A crushing plant has different stations (primary, secondary, tertiary, …) where different crushing, screening and transport cycles are done in order to obtain different stone sizes or the required sand and gravels.
Key equipment in the stone crushing plant
2.1 Crushing plants make use of a large range of equipment, such as a pre-screener, loading conveyor, intake hopper, magnetic separator, crushing unit, such as jaw crushers, impact crushers, hammer crushers, and cone crusher etc.
2.2 Vibrating Feeder: It feeds the jaw crusher or other types of crushers evenly and continuously with the rocks and stones to be crushed.
2.3 Crushers: Most common crushers like jaw crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher, cone crusher, double roll crusher, etc. These are the machines where the rocks and stones are crushed. There are different types of crushers for different types of rocks and stones and different sizes of the input and output material. Each plant would incorporate one or several crushing machines depending on the required final material (small stones or sand).
2.4 Vibrating Screen: It is used to separate the different sizes of the material obtained by the crushers.
2.5 Belt Conveyor: These elements are the belts used for transportation of the material from one machine to another during different phases of process.
2.6 Central electric control system: Control and monitor the operation of the entire crushing plant system.
