Conglomerate is a kind of rock whose particle debris content is more than 30%. At the same time, the diameter of particle debris is larger than 2 mm. Conglomerate’s main constituent is lithic debris, only a small amount of mineral debris. And the interstitial materials are sand, silt, clay and chemical substances sediment. The hardness of conglomerate is 7, the proportion is 2.65. The colors are always milky white, yellow, brown, and gray. Conglomerate has a higher fire resistance.
According to the size of gravel, conglomerate can be divided into boulder conglomerate (> 256 mm), large conglomerate (64 to 256 mm), pebbles conglomerate (4 to 64 mm) and fine conglomerate (2 to 4 mm). Depending on the complexity of gravel ingredients, conglomerate can be divided into single-component conglomerate and complex-component conglomerate.
Conglomerate has such a wide application, so how to process it? Now I will introduce the conglomerate crushing processing line for you. At first, we need to choose a primary crusher. Jaw crusher is always the necessary equipment in various minerals processing line. It is with the features of large capacity, high reliability, easy maintenance and low operating cost. So it is widely applied in coarse crushing of a variety of high hardness materials and low hardness materials.
After primary crushing, we need a cone crusher for secondary crushing. You have many different choices, such as CS Cone Crusher, HCS Cone Crusher, HPC Cone Crusher, and PY Cone Crusher. All of them are designed by our professional engineers. Our cone crushers absorb advanced technology around the world, and adopt high-tech materials.
At last, VSI5X Crusher is necessary crushing equipment used in manufactured sand production line, sand and gravel production plant. It adopts hydraulic opening device, which making this crusher is convenient to maintain, time saving, and labor saving. Throughout optimization and upgrading, VSI5X Crusher’s consumption of wear parts reduced more than 30%.
Besides, some auxiliary equipment is essential, such as vibrating feeder, vibrating screen and belt conveyor. Vibrating feeder is used to feed the materials to the specified machine evenly and continuously. Vibrating screen can separate materials into different sizes. The materials with required size can be sent to windrow as final product directly. In this way, it will greatly avoid unnecessary fragmentation process and increase the production. Belt conveyor is the bridge between the neighboring machines. And it can greatly improve the degree of automation and reduce labor costs.
I have introduced a lot about the conglomerate crushing processing line before, now I will tell you the use of conglomerate. After processed, conglomerate can be used for paving. Currently the length of conglomerate road is longer than the total of concrete road and asphalt road around the world.
Fine conglomerate is an important material for the production of concrete. In addition, it has many important industrial applications. It is the main raw material of glass, refractory, ceramic, foundry, military, communications and other industries.
