silica sand mining and processing methods

The whole silica sand mining approach frequently contains the following process: crushing, grinding and separation. Within the crushing course of action, the raw supplies firstly sent in to the jaw crusher for the main crushing, if important, the crushed materials will enter in the influence crusher or cone crusher for additional crushing. Then the minerals enter into the ball mill or grinding mill to become grounded. Subsequent may be the separation procedure. The separation course of action could be divided into flotation separation, gravity separation and magnetic separation.

Gravity separation: Based on the different minerals density in the silica sand, gravity separation is made use of to eliminate the heavy minerals to lower the iron content material.

Flotation: The flotation approach is mainly used to eliminate the iron bearing heavy minerals in silica sand. The minerals are commonly the exact same as the iron bearing minerals described inside the gravity section. At occasions, flotation may also be utilized to eliminate mica.

Magnetic separation: In silica sand, different magnetic minerals are involved in it. We can use the magnetic separator to do away with the undesired components.

silica sand processing and equipment

In silica sand processing operation, the mined mineral from silica sand quarry deposit will be fed into jaw crusher or impact crusher for primary crushing, after primary crushing; the crushed silica sand is conveyed to cone crusher and VSI crusher for fine crushing.

And then, the fine crushed silica sand will be sieved into different grades by vibrating screen. Washing plant will be applied to clean up the crushed silica sand to remove the impurity and waste materials. SBM has been optimized the silica sand processing plant flow chart, the whole production process work smoothly and high efficiency.
