Production line solution for crushed stone #1 (size 2 to 4 inches)

  • Vibrating Feeder: SBM GZD Series Vibrating Feeder (e.g., GZD850x3000). A vibrating feeder that can feed the stones into the primary crusher consistently and evenly should be used to start the production line.
  • Primary Crusher: SBM PE Series Jaw Crusher (e.g., PE900x1200) or SBM CI5X Series Impact Crusher (e.g., CI5X1315). To reduce the size of the huge stones, use a jaw crusher or an impact crusher as the main crusher. A variety of jaw crushers and impact crushers from SBM are available for a range of uses and output levels.
  • Secondary Crusher: SBM HPT Series Cone Crusher (e.g., HPT300) or SBM PF Series Impact Crusher (e.g., PF1315). Use a secondary crusher to further reduce the size of the stones after the main crushing step. Cone crushers or impact crushers are options based on the size and form of the finished product.
  • Vibrating Screen: SBM YK Series Vibrating Screen (e.g., YK1548) or SBM S5X Series Vibrating Screen (e.g., S5X1860). After the secondary crusher, install a vibrating screen to sort the crushed stones into various sizes. To effectively sort and categorize the stones according to their particle size, the vibrating screen may contain many decks.
  • Belt Conveyor: SBM B Series Belt Conveyor (e.g., B800). Use belt conveyors to move the crushed stones down the manufacturing line from one step to the next. This guarantees a seamless and uninterrupted flow of information.
  • Stockpile or Storage Bin: Customizable depending on the specific requirements and capacity.
  • Optional Equipment: Additional equipment can be added as per requirements, such as a tertiary crusher or a sand-making machine. For example, SBM VSI Series Vertical Shaft Impact Crusher (e.g., VSI9526) for sand production.
