Blue Stone is a sedimentary rock of gray-blue color with main deposits in Belgium, France and Ireland.
It is a hard limestone, solid, heavy and compact as marble. It has the characteristics of resistance to weathering, dirt and pollution, it is non-porous, naturally waterproof, resists moisture and dries quickly.
It changes color to black / light gray / blue-gray according to processing and finishing.
The blue stone is mostly a building material but also can be used as ornamental stone.
Today it is well-known for its applications in the field of architecture and interior-design, for decorations, flooring, wall covering, thresholds, window sills, and work surfaces. It is suitable for areas that require a non-slip flooring as coping on swimming pools and edging in bathrooms.
It is extracted from the quarry in blocks and is usually only occasionally processed with splitting, almost always along the direction of the vein. Usually you obtain thin veneers from the sawn blocks. Some blocks can be split with automatic H-frame machines, such as Px series, or if the stone is particularly tall, even on P4 machines equipped with side blades.

 

 

MACHINES FOR BLUE STONE PROCESSING

Horizontal T1, Horizontal T2

The two main Horizontal machines have been designed by MEC, T1 and T2 of the Pitching line, they have different characteristics, depending on your needs. The first has only one head with chisel. The Horizontal T2, however, has two heads for increased productivity of pitched stones.

PX Series

The machines for the processing of blue stone PX Series can be used as primary machines, with an option of combination in splitting line. Their robust closed structure and the mechanical adjustment of teeth make these machines suitable for every stone category.

p4

P4 Series

The 4 blades – top, bottom and 2 sides - of the machines that fall within the P4 Series allow to have a net split of blue stone, creating a sense of regularity. You will also get the pieces with a minimum thickness or of considerable size too.

Half Series

The two blades of the machines Half for processing of blue stone are horizontal and automatic and allow you to obtain small strips or covering plates with at least one split face. The machinery of the Half Series is designed to recover the waste of cutting.

MDC Series

The machines for the processing of blue stone of the MDC Series are manual and H-frame type, they are used for finishing before the laying. Their biggest benefit is the possibility of the handling, which allows you to carry these machines in processing areas with pickup or trucks.

Fast Series

The machines of the MEC Fast Series are designed to cut with optimal performance any kind of irregular stone, including, of course, the blue stone. Depending on the level of productivity or performance you want, it is possible to choose between systems with one, two, three or five diamond blades.

Stark Series

The Stark Series is one of the crushing lines for blue stone made by MEC. In particular, these systems are concerned with the primary crushing of waste: in this way you get different particle sizes, depending on the level of opening or closing of the jaws.

Crunch Series

As for the Stark Series, also Crunch Series is ideal for crushing of the blue stone scraps. Conversely to the Stark Series, Crunch Series deals with the secondary crushing: the end result is rubble or sand, which can be used for different projects.
