Crushed stone is aggregated into various sizes like 35mm, 20mm, 12mm, etc for different uses. Crushed stone aggregates are used for construction of roads, bridges, housing, industrily building construction and other cement based products like RCC pipes, PSC poles, premoulded slabs, frames and beems, etc for fabrication.

Stone manufacturing process

The granite stones of various sizes are fed into the jaw crushers for size reduction. Depending on the desired output size of the crushed stone, the raw material may be fed to one or two jaw crushers in a sequence. Then these crushed stones are passed on to the rotary screen for size gradation. Material is handled through a belt conveyor to the different places of operation i.e from jaw crusher to the rotary screen.

Stone Crushing Production Line

The stone crushing production line in Zenith machinery mainly consists of Vibrating Feeder, Jaw Crusher, Impact Crusher, Vibrating Screen, Belt Conveyor, Electric Control Box, etc.

We design different production lines ranging 50 t/h to 500 t/h by combining different models of equipments also matching Cone Crusher, Bag Dust Catcher, etc. to satisfy different customers’ technological requirements.

Process of the Stone Crushing Production Line:

Big stones are transferred to Kenya primary crusher through vibrating feeder from hopper for first crushing, then the crushed materials are transferred to impact crusher through belt conveyor for secondary crushing. The kenya materials crushed will be transferred to the vibrating screen, and separated to different sizes.

Stone Crushing Industry  in kenya is an important industrial sector in the country engaged in producing crushed stone of various sizes depending upon the requirement which acts as raw material for various construction activities, such as construction of Roads, Highways, Bridges, Buildings, Canals etc. It is estimated that there are over 12,000 stone crusher units in India. The number is expected to grow further keeping in view the future plans for development of infrastructure of roads, canals and buildings that are required for overall development of the country.

Cost of a new stone crusher

The stone crusher is one such industry that exists in the vicinity of almost all major cities/towns throughout the country in all the states because the construction activities go on throughout the country. As transportation of stone over long distances adds to cost of the crushed stone products, the crushers need to be necessarily located nearer to the demand centers such as Cities, Bridges, Canals etc. Stone Crushers also need electricity supply and large number of man power for its operation.

Cost of Stone Crushers also need electricity supply and large number of man power for its operation. It also needs access roads for the movement of mined stone as well as crushed stone products. It is for these reason that most Stone Crushers are located along the periphery of Cities or in the vicinity of major construction projects. In most cases the Stone Crushers come up in clusters of number of units ranging from five to fifty in one cluster. The crushers are located nearer to the source of raw material such as Stone mines, River Beds etc.

Jaw crusher for stone crushing plant

Various types of crushers are used in the stone crushing industry such as Jaw Crushers, Roller Crushers, Cone Crushers, Impactor, Rotopoctor etc. Generally, only Jaw crushers are used as Primary crushers. For secondary and tertiary crushing application either of Jaw, cone, roller, Impactor or Rotopoctor type crushers are used. Various types of crushers are briefly described below.

These are the oldest type of and most commonly used crushers in use and have changed little from the original design. In Jaw Crusher the feed is compressed between a stationary and a movable surface. A few of common types of Jaw crushers, in use, are described below.

  1. Double Toggle Crusher: The Blake jaw crusher has a fixed jaw and a moving jaw pivoted at the top. The crushing faces themselves are formed either of manganese steel or of chilled cast iron. The maximum pressure is exerted on the large material, which is introduced at the top. These crushers are made with jaw widths varying from about 2″ to 48″ and the running speed varies from about 100 to 400 RPM.
  2. Single toggle Jaw crusher: The single-toggle crusher is the simplest and the lightest of the jaw crushers but is suitable only for producing low crushing forces and therefore used for soft rocks.
  3. Impact Jaw Crushers: In this type of crusher the crusher cavity is inclined. As there is larger stroke and higher rotation speed (about 400 rpm) a stronger impact is achieved. As a result, hard, tough materials can be processed.
