Stone crushing: how does it happen, and how to do it quickly?

Stone crushing might seem like a complex and extremely time-consuming process. But using the right equipment can get it done quickly and easily. However, it is necessary to consider a priori which ones are the finished products we want to obtain since, based on their shape and grain size, it is necessary to rely on different technologies.

For example, to obtain a more or less fine uniform grain, rounded gravel, we must use a hammer mill, while for obtaining rubble or irregularly shaped grit, we use jaw crushers. To find out in detail about MEC solutions you can choose for stone crushing, continue reading the article!

What can a crushed stone be used for?

Today, crushed stone finds numerous uses: first of all, the recycling of waste and excess rock waste and therefore discarded. Crushed stone can also be used in construction and decorative purposes.

The stone obtained from the crushing process can be coarse or fine – therefore, it is considered multipurpose – perfect for use in all construction areas. But which MEC machines are suitable for this particular stone processing?

The company provides professionals in the stone branch with solutions for their crushing, divided as follows:

Jaw crushers for crushing stones and aggregates Stark 15. Characterized by a particularly robust and compact frame, these machines were born from the need to crush materials of any hardness with dimensions up to 30×15 cm. Marble, porphyry, granite, as well as, sandstone, and limestone are just a few examples of stones that Stark works excellently to obtain different particle sizes, depending on the opening and closing of the jaws. The Stark 15 can compose a complete and efficient crushing line.

Hammer mill for stone milling  Crunch.   This solution makes it possible to obtain a more or less coarse, uniform, and rounded sand according to the level of refinement needed.

Perfect for each type of stone, Crunch is made of Hardox anti-wear material and equipped with an upper feeding mouth where you load the product for crushing, a grid specially dedicated to bringing together the chosen grain size (based on the installed grate).

Stone-crushing plants and lines. These are complete solutions capable of ensuring better performance in terms of productivity. MEC plants are designed to crush stone waste and aggregates that would find no other use. MEC professional lines can be composed as follows: a loading conveyor belt for handling the stone for crushing, a Stark and/or Crunch crusher, one or more conveyor belts, and two or three decks vibrating screen used to separate different particle sizes chosen.

We also talk about crushing within these articles. Find out more now:

Conclusion

All MEC solutions have been designed to minimize the vibrations caused by the crushing process during the working phase. It is thus possible to crush even the hardest, the most resistant, and/or abrasive materials.
