Silica sand is a term normally applied to high purity silica sand products with closely controlled sizing. It is a more precise product than common concrete and asphalt gravels. Silica is the name given to a group of minerals composed solely of silicon and oxygen, the two most abundant elements in the earth’s crust.
Silica sand can be used in glass-making, metal casting, metallurgical, chemical production, building, paint and coating, ceramics and refectories and so on. So we can see that silica sand plays an very important role in our daily life.
silica sand processing equipment
Silica sand processing equipment mainly consist of vibrating feeder, jaw crusher, vertical shaft impact crusher, cone crusher or impact crusher, hammer crusher, vibrating screen, sand and gravel material cleaning equipment, sand washing machine. According to the different hardness and size of the stone in silica sand production line, the operators should select suitable sand making equipment and sand washing machine in order to ensure the smooth and stability of the silica sand production line operations.
Silica sand maker
Silica sand crushing plant, screening plant, or quartz sand crushing plant is the widely used crushing plant used to process large scale silica sand and river sand. Silica sand crushing plant including several series: cone crusher, jaw crusher, impact crusher, mobile crusher and VSI sand making machine. Of all these silica sand crushing plants, VSI sand making machine is the one which fit the requirement of sand making most.
