Equipment for setting up granite production line

  • At some operations, all the granite crushing is accomplished in one step, by a primary crusher. At other operations, crushing is done in two or three steps, with a primary crusher that is followed by a secondary crusher, and sometimes a tertiary crusher. Zenith is the global suplier and manufacturer of granite crushing plant. We also customize stone crushing solution according to specific requirements. If you want to know granite crushing plant price or any other information, please contact us.

    Granite is igneous rock of visible crystalline formation and texture. It is composed of feldspar (usually potash feldspar and oligoclase) and quartz, with a small amount of mica (biotite or muscovite) and minor accessory minerals, such as zircon, apatite, magnetite, ilmenite, and sphene.

    The specific gravity of Granite ranges from 2.63 to 3.30. Granite has greater strength than sandstone, limestone or Marble and is correspondingly more difficult to quarry. It is an important building stone, and its maximum usage is in the external flooring and facing followed by internal flooring. Granite quarry requires various types of processing equipment.

    Dimensional stone processing is being done with different levels of technology in different countries but a few leading countries such as Italy, China, Spain, Japan, Taiwan, Portugal, Germany, France, USA, and Greece have developed highly efficient technology with good forward and backward linkages. India has also improved this sector considerably in the last two decades. Consumption on the other hand is more wide spread phenomena with over 50 countries of the world making use of dimensional stone in considerable quantities. The quarrying and working of stone, already practiced in ancient times by the Egyptians and the Greeks, was greatly developed in Italy under the Romans.
