Limestone Crusher

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of calcite, calcium carbonate (CaCO3). Limestone often contains variable amounts of silica or siliceous skeletal fragment, as well as varying amounts of clay, silt and sand sized terrestrial detritus carried in by rivers.

   

Most crushed stone is limestone and dolomite. It is used mostly for construction purposes, although much of it is also used in shoreline protection. In construction, crushed limestone is used as an aggregate in concrete mixes. The limestone binds the mix together when it hardens. Almost 60% of all crushed limestone is used as aggregate in highway concrete and asphalt. All crushed limestone in Michigan is mined in open quarries. Drilling and blasting are necessary.

Limestone crushing and grinding process

Limestone is important building materials, and raw materials for cement production. We must crush limestone into suitable size through limestone crushing process or grind them into sand or powder by limestone grinding machine in limestone processing plant.

Limestone crushing process need limestone crusher equipment. In this process, we usually use jaw crusher, cone crusher, mobile crusher such as portable mobile crusher. These machines are used to crush limestone into smaller particles. According to the different products, we choose the different crushing process. Usually limestone crushing plant includes primary crushing process and secondary crushing process. If the product is sand, the limestone particles must do stone shapping through sand making machine. If you need the stone powder, using limestone grinding machines to grind these crushed limestone particles into powder. In this grinding process, high pressure suspension grinding mill, raymond mill, ball mill are usually used.

Limestone crusher used in stone quarry

In stone quarry, there are several types of stone crushers that can be used in limestone crushing plant.

Limestone jaw crusher is the widely used primary limestone crusher machine, it is mainly used in primary crushing process. Fixed jaw plate, and movable jaw plate are wearable parts. Different jaw crushers have different output, the usual capacity is 1-5 t/p, 30-50tph, 50-80tph, 80-120tph, 120-200tph, 200-300tph, 300-400tph, 400-500tph.

Impact crusher is also common stone crushing machine used in limestone quarry. It has the functions of crushing and shaping, can make very good cubic shape. The stone materials are mainly used for road, highway, water conservancy, airport, civil construction etc. The market prices of stones made by impact crusher is higher than that by fineness jaw crusher or compound cone crusher; the quick wear parts cost of impact crusher is also high for high hardness stones.

Limestone mobile crusher is the complete crushing unit, includes feeding, crushing, screening process. for example, limestone mobile jaw crusher includes vibrating feeder, primary jaw crusher, vibrating screen, and belt conveyor. There are other models, such as limestone mobile impact crusher, limestone mobile cone crusher.

Hammer crusher for limestone crushing: Hammer crusher is the fine limestone crushing machine. In limestone processing plant, it is main limestone quarry machine used to crush limestone into powder.

Shanghai Xuanshi is a mining machine manufacturer in China, and provides all kinds of stone crushers and grinding mills. We can also design the special complete crushing plant according to the requirements of customers.
