Sandstone is a clastic rock formed by cementing sands at different times, which is why it very often has a composition of flat, horizontal and parallel layers. A distinction is made between fine-grained, medium-grained and coarse-grained sandstones. The colour of sandstone varies according to its composition: from yellow to red and brown or from light grey to dark blue-grey. Being easily workable and good-looking, sandstone is widely used in interior and exterior design. If it occurs in shapeless blocks, sandstone is usually split with manual machines. If, on the other hand, the blocks are sawn, they can be processed on automatic machines, e.g. the P4 series with 4 blades. The split sandstone blocks can be finished on the pitching side to achieve an even more convex splitting effect, commonly known as «Ashler».
From the simple reduction of waste volume, to the recovery for road construction or yard scrapes, the crushers and crushing lines and the Mec mills are a great opportunity for those working with stone or concrete. Crushers give value to the otherwise unrecoverable waste, thereby reducing the cost of transport, storage and landfill, completing at the same time the processing production cycle of stone and concrete.
MEC splitters can be used to split any type of natural stone. The wide assortment of MEC splitters includes open and closed structure solutions that are high-performance, customizable and can be integrated with each other. Our splitters also guarantee a top-of-the-range splitting profile, as they can be configured in terms of handling systems, dimensions and splitting forces.
Line of products to move the stone quickly, without any risk and fatigue for the operator, making the plant more productive. Conveyor belts, pushers and manipulators can be operated manually or also automated within the splitting line. They can have different lengths, widths or runs depending on the needs. According to customer requirements, special handling systems can also be designed and supplied.
