Granite Quarrying Process
The first step in quarrying is to fine the granite deposit. Quarrying operations typically include the drilling of holes along the perimeter of the bench, followed by either cutting the stone out of the deposit using saws equipped with diamond wire, or by splitting the stone using hydraulic splitters or small explosive charges.
Once the bench is cut or split loose from the deposit, heavy equipment is used to lift the granite bench and transfer it to an inspection area for grading, temporary storage, occasional preprocessing into slabs, and eventual shipment from the site.
Granite of insufficient quality or size for current demand is stored on-site for future use, crushed for use in paving and construction applications, or stored for future site reclamation activities.
Granite Processing Equipment
Granite is an important and popular building material. It has been used for thousands of years in construction applications. Granite dimension stone is used in buildings, bridges, paving, monuments and many other exterior projects. Granite processing involves several stages and different types of granite processing equipment.
The extracted granite rocks need to be crushed for size reduction, the granite crushing plant applied includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, and mobile crusher. After crushing, the materials will be sieving by vibrating screen. According to final application requirements, it may need to be grinded to produce fine granite powder.
