Silica Sand Crushing Plant

Silica sand is also silicon dioxide, sometimes referred to as quartz. Silica sand has been mined for long history because of its many uses, from paving roads to filtering drinking water, making glass, as fill, and to create molds and castings.

It is also used in the hydrofracking process: fluid pressure fractures the rock and opens natural fractures and pores that would normally be closed due to the weight of the overlying rock, the sand grains are then carried into these fractures and prop them open after the fluid pressure is released.

To meet the industry specifications, silica sand needs to be nearly pure quartz, very well rounded, and must meet tight size gradation standards.

Silica Sand Crushing

Silica sand crushing plants are usually composed of a primary crushing unit and a secondary crusher with a screen plant. Crushing plants are powered by either a large diesel engine, or by a generator. The shot rock is picked up by front end loaders from the blast area and carried to the primary crusher. The primary crusher breaks the shot rock into breaker run. Breaker run is conveyed to the secondary crusher where it is further broken down. The resulting material is fed to a screen plant where it is sorted by size. Larger particles are recycled within the plant to the secondary crusher and screens until they have reached the desired size. SBM provides various types of silica sand crusher in Russia for producing high quality silica sand.
