BLUE STONE

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.

Processing machines BLUE STONE

Featured with heavy-duty frame, STARK jaw crushers are ideal for crushing not only waste marble, granite and natural stone, but also a wide variety of different materials such as agglomerate, ceramic, glass, and concrete. STARK can produce different grain sizes depending on the opening of the jaws.

Splitting plants with automated closed frame machines, customizable in feeding systems and in machine models.

Closed type (H frame) manual machines, characterized by the mechanical adjustment of tools. Suitable for the splitting of large and irregular blocks.

Splitting machine composed of closed (H frame) frame machine equipped with 4 blades, ideal for production of thin material with a high quality split profile.

In the T2 version, the machine has two heads that pitch (peel) both sides of the slab obtaining in a single passage the rustic and split surface, so sought-after for veneer coverings. Thanks to the presence of two heads, the productivity of this version is very high.

Ideal for recovering waste material, the Horizontal T1 is an automatic machine equipped with one splitting head that pitches sawn slabs, obtaining a split side in view face. The T1 version is suitable for those who do not need high volume production, since they work the slabs on one side at a time.

Automatic splitting plant that splits horizontally small cladding tiles or strips sawn on 6 sides. This small machine can be also customizable.

Ideal for secondary crushing, the CRUNCH hammer mill is a horizontal axis machine provided with rotating hammers. It is characterised by the high degree of size reduction obtained in the fragmentation of natural stone, concrete and aggregates of low and medium hardness.

The Fast Series was created specifically as a line of machines for cutting shapeless stone, as in the case of andesite. These machines are, therefore, the ideal solution also for splitting and defining andesite. The Fast Series ensures reduced transport times and increased productivity.
