Granite Crusher Machine

Since unprocessed granite has large blocks, it need the granite crusher machine to complete the crushing operation. And the granite can be used reasonably after being crushed.

It can handle materials with a side length of 100-500 mm or less. The compressive strength can reach up to 350 MPa. It has advantages of a large crushing ratio and cubic particles being crushed. In the market, there are so many granite crushers for sale. Do you know how to pick up the suitable one? What should you consider when you select the crushers? Well, I think that the first thing is to know the characteristics of the materials first.

Characteristics of Granite Materials

Granite, commonly known as “mash stone,” is a widely distributed type of igneous rock. It is primarily composed of minerals such as quartz, mica, and feldspar. Different varieties have different mineral compositions, and may also contain diabase and amphibolite. Granite is hard in texture and difficult to be eroded by acid, alkali or weathering. It is often used as a building material.

  • Composition and Hardness

    Mohs hardness ranging from 5 to 7. Notably, it has a high quartz content, making it relatively hard compared to other ore materials. Therefore, crushing granite may require three or more stages of crushing to achieve ideal particle size of aggregate materials.

  • Physical Characteristics

    Its density ranges from 2.63 g/cm³ to 2.75 g/cm³, and its compressive strength falls within the range of 100-300 MPa. Fine-grained granite can even exceed 300 MPa in compressive strength, with a flexural strength typically ranging from 10 to 30 MPa.

  • Exceptional Qualities

    Granite exhibits a tough and dense texture, characterized by high strength, resistance to weathering, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, low water absorption, and excellent stability.

  • Versatile Applications

    In general, the crushed granite finds extensive applications in various fields, including bridges, buildings, dams, road paving, walls, and the decoration sector of artificial stone.

Only by taking into account the aforementioned characteristics of granite can we make optimal choices in selecting the appropriate types of crushers and configuring a granite crushing production line. Next, let’s check how to configure the best crusher for granite.

Which Type Of Crusher Is Suitable For Processing Granite?

Due to granite’s hardness ranking second only to diamonds, making it tougher to crush compared to river pebbles, limestone, and marble, the processing of granite presents significant challenges. Consequently, there are higher demands on crushing equipment.

2-4 Stages of Crushing Mode for Granite Crushing

The granite crushing and processing process can be mainly divided into three stages: coarse crushing, medium-fine crushing, and shaping.

Generally speaking, the main crusher can choose jaw crusher (coarse crushing), cone crusher (medium and fine crushing), vertical shaft impact crusher (VSI crusher for sand making).

Different crushers are suitable for different crushing stages and need to be combined for crushing. For hard rock crushing such as granite, 2-4 stages of crushing mode can be used depending on different production conditions. Here I will introduce you the crusher choices in different stages of crushing mode.

2 Stage Crushing: Jaw crusher + Cone crusher

2 stages crushing is common crushing solution for granite stone crushing. The granite jaw crusher crushers are responsible for coarse crushing, breaking down large stones extracted from the mountains into medium-sized pieces (with discharge sizes around 5-30 cm).

The granite cone crusher handles the medium-fine crushing stage, offering different crushing chamber options for coarse, medium, and fine crushing. After the crushing process, materials are screened, resulting in output specifications like 5-10/10-20/20-32mm for different stone sizes.

3 Stage Crushing: Jaw Crusher + Cone Crusher + VSI Crusher

On the basis of a two-stage crushing, a vertical shaft impact crusher has been introduced. The vertical shaft impact crusher granite serves two main purposes:

Main Purpose of VSI Crusher In 3-Stage Crushing

  • One the one hand, it is employed for shaping the granite stones, removing the sharp edges post-crushing to achieve a more rounded and full particle shape. This aligns better with the application standards for high-grade materials used in highways, railways, and other infrastructure projects.
  • On the other hand, the VSI crusher is primarily used for the production of manufactured sand. It further crushes granite stones, stone powder, and angular materials into machine-made sand below 5mm, meeting the requirements of a production line that simultaneously produces crushed granite stone and manufactured sand.

The crushing solution is considered a classic setup for granite sand and gravel production. Many clients have adopted this solution. Check one of case for reference.

4 Stage Crushing: Jaw crusher + Single-cylinder Cone Crusher + Multi-cylinder Cone Crusher + VSI Crusher

The four-stage configuration involves the simultaneous use of a single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher and a multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher in the intermediate and fine crushing stages.

Compared to a single-stage cone crusher machine for granite, the two-stage cone crushers can complement each other, sharing the crushing and wear pressures.

The solution has features of higher crushing efficiency and larger output, making it well-suited for medium to large-scale hard granite rock crushing projects.

In addition to the the main crushers, a complete granite crushing production line also requires supporting equipment such as vibrating feeders, vibrating screens, and conveyor belts. These auxiliary devices undertake functions such as raw material transportation and final product screening, collectively facilitating the production operations of sand and gravel materials. However, how much does the total granite crusher unit cost? Here are some AIMIX granite crusher price ranges for reference.

Granite Crusher Machine Price Ranges

The price range for AIMIX granite crusher machine for sale can vary widely depending on various factors such as the model, capacity, and additional features.
