Silica Sand Processing Plant

SBM offers processing solutions to meet the strict iron, chromite and titanium level requirements of glass sands specification, and the strict API specifications for frac sands. A full range of gravity and classification devices including, SBM spirals and the high density separator, are useful for pre-concentration and ultimate sizing of the sands to meet product requirements.

Our drum magnetic separators are ideal for purification, i.e. removing the small quantities of contaminate minerals found in silica sands and feldspar. The processes are rounded out with advanced dewatering systems of SBM thickeners, clarifiers and filters to minimize drying costs and ensure proper tailings handling.

Silica Sand Processing Plant

In silica sand processing plant, the mined rock is transported to the processing site and stockpiled. The material then is crushed. According to the degree of cementation, several stages of crushing may be required to produce the desired size reduction, such as primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushings. Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, roll crushers, impact mills and cone crushers are used for primary and secondary crushing.

After crushing, the size of the material is further reduced to 50 micrometers or smaller by grinding, using ball mill, media mills, autogenous mills, hammer mills, or jet mills. The ground material then is classified by wet screening plant, dry screening machine, air classification machine, and dried by drying plant.

Dry Separation for Silica Sand

The roll of dry magnetic separation for the processing of silica sands has always been confined to relatively specialist grades produced in small quantities. The part played by dry magnetic separation for the treatment of silica sands and more commonly feldspathic sands, has always been confined to relatively specialist grades produced in small quantities. Production of such materials is normally for a bagged material, and a lower iron specification is often associated with such a product.
