Aggregate and Sand Processing Operation

Production of sand and gravel consists of washing and scrubbing to get rid of clay, separation of the sand fraction by screening, grading of the gravel, sand classification and dewatering, and crushing of any oversize gravel to manufacture a saleable product. Washing removes silt and clay, which is existing either as surface coatings or as clay-bound agglomerates that need to be broken down.

The silt and clay content of a sand and gravel deposit is a vital parameter in determining its economic viability; the silt content should be lower than 25% and the clay should be much lower as it is harder to remove. Some gravels containing clay may be sold "as dug" for constructional fill.

Crushing is the crucial stage in aggregate production plant. According to final products application, aggregate crushing process mainly accomplished in the following stages.

Aggregate Production Plant Design
Crushing Stage Crushing plant Involved Maximum feed size (mm) Maximum final particle size (mm)
Primary Jaw crusher Gyratory crusher 700-1000 100-300
Secondary Cone crusher HSI crusher Jaw crusher (rarely) 100-250 20-100
Tertiary Cone crusher VSI crusher 14-100 10-50
Quaternary VSI crusher Cone crusher 10-40 10-20
