Limestone Crusher Machine

Limestone Crusher Machine

Details of this product

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and/or aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate.

Like most other sedimentary rocks, limestones are composed of grains; however, most grains in limestone are skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. Other carbonate grains comprising limestones are ooids, peloids, intraclasts, and extraclasts. Some limestones do not consist of grains at all, and are formed completely by the chemical precipitation of calcite or aragonite, i.e. travertine.

Applications of Limestone

  • 1. Many landmarks across the world, including the Great Pyramid and its associated complex in Giza, Egypt, are made of limestone.
  • 2. Train stations, banks and other structures from that era are normally made of limestone.
  • 3. It is the raw material for the manufacture of quicklime (calcium oxide), slaked lime (calcium hydroxide), cement and mortar.

Limestone crusher classification

In stone quarry, there are several types of stone crushers that can be used in limestone crushing plant.

Limestone jaw crusher is the widely used primary limestone crusher machine, it is mainly used in primary crushing process. Fixed jaw plate, and movable jaw plate are wearable parts. Different jaw crushers have different output, the usual capacity is 1-5 t/p, 30-50tph, 50-80tph, 80-120tph, 120-200tph, 200-300tph, 300-400tph, 400-500tph.

Impact crusher is also common stone crushing machine used in limestone quarry. It has the functions of crushing and shaping, can make very good cubic shape. The stone materials are mainly used for road, highway, water conservancy, airport, civil construction etc. The market prices of stones made by impact crusher is higher than that by fineness jaw crusher or compound cone crusher; the quick wear parts cost of impact crusher is also high for high hardness stones.

Limestone mobile crusher is the complete crushing unit, includes feeding, crushing, screening process. for example, limestone mobile jaw crusher includes vibrating feeder, primary jaw crusher, vibrating screen, and belt conveyor. There are other models, such as limestone mobile impact crusher, limestone mobile cone crusher, crawler type mobile crusher.

Hammer crusher for limestone crushing: Hammer crusher is the fine limestone crushing machine. In limestone processing plant, it is main limestone quarry machine used to crush limestone into powder.

Limestone crusher and Limestone mill used in Limestone crushing plant

Limestone is important buiding materials, and raw materials for cement production. We must crush limestone into suitable size through limestone crushing process or grind them into sand or powder by limestone grinding machine in limestone processing plant.

Limestone crushing process need limestone crusher equipment. In this process, we usually use jaw crusher, cone crusher, mobile crusher such as portable mobile crusher, crawler type mobile crusher. These machines are used to crush limestones into smaller particles. According to the different products, we choose the different crushing process. Usually limestone crushing plant includes primary crushing process and secondary crushing process. If the product is sand, the limestone particles must do stone shapping through sand making machine. If you need the stone powder, using limestone grinding machines to grind these crushed limestone particles into powder. In this grinding process, hammer mill, ball mill, vertical mill are usually used.
