What rocks/stone can be used to produce artificial sand

In the case of tight natural sand supply and prohibition of mining, artificial sand production has occupied the gravel market. It is widely used in many infrastructure projects. Compared with natural sand, artificial sand has low acquisition costs and huge output. Sand equipment screening equipment can get different sizes of sand. The following will introduce you to which rocks can make sand.

Several rocks for sand making

The raw materials for sand making are generally granite, basalt, river pebble, limestone, andesite, rhyolite, diorite, glauconite, sandstone, and other materials. The strength and particle size of the sand made by different rocks are different. Uses are also different.

1. Sandstone
Vermiculite sandstone has a high quartz content and is widely used in sandstone production lines. However, the stone powder is easy to be generated during the production process, and the problem of stone powder diffusion needs to be solved.

2. Quartz stone
Quartzite is also a good raw material for making sand. The hardness of quartzite is very strong, which can reach or exceed the particle size and strength of natural sand. Therefore, it is often used in public buildings and home decoration, and it is a reusable and environmentally friendly green material.

3. River Pebble
Luohe pebble is a widely used and good texture sand making stone. It is a good substitute for natural sand in terms of strength, particle shape, and color.

4. Limestone
Limestone is widely distributed in nature, and it is easy to obtain. In the sandstone production line, it can be used as the raw material of sand and stone at the same time, and the stone powder can also be reused.

5. Basalt
Sand mixed with basalt can reduce the weight of concrete, but its strength is still strong, and it has the characteristics of sound insulation and heat insulation. It is a good building aggregate for lightweight concrete in high-rise buildings.

6. Granite
Granite has high quartz content and low sulfide content. It is a good raw material for making sand, but like sandstone, it needs to solve the problem of dust.

Choose a good quality sand maker and sand washer
