There are many kinds of raw materials that can be used for artificial sand making, and users can choose from a wide range, such as pebbles, cobblestones, basalt, granite, potassium feldspar, andesite, limestone, and weathered granite, etc. The hardness, lumpiness and nature of these ore materials are different, and they all need to be mined firstly. Compared with natural sand, the artificial sand crushed by the sand making machine has higher adhesion, stronger wear resistance, and controllable particle size, which can meet the needs of users for all kinds of sand. In addition, a large amount of construction waste such as bricks and concrete will be generated in the renovation process of buildings. Construction waste can also be processed into mechanism sand by sand making machine. It can also realize the conversion of waste into treasure and bring rich profits.

What is the cost of artificial sand?

The cost of artificial sand will be different according to different stone hardness, different feed size, and different production capacity. The cost of making a ton of sand includes five aspects: electricity, water, manpower, wearing parts consumption, and stone.

Correct selection of sand making equipment is also one aspect to save cost. The production process of artificial sand making is mainly divided into crushing and sand making. The sand making process affects the particle size and quality of mechanism sands, so the production effect of sand making machine determines the economic benefits of users. Here we recommend mobile crusher station - CMC series crawler type mobile vertical shaft impact crusher integrates crushing, vibration and screening in one, which is suitable for the unfixed site, does not need to build the basic foundation. It is convenient and flexible transition, can also work normally in the case of power failure.

The raw materials of artificial sand are different, the particle size requirements of finished products are different, and the type of sand making machine selected is also different. When users choose sand making machine, they should decide according to their own production needs, and the cost is also different.
