Barite Quarry Processing Equipment
The extracted barite materials will be conveyed to quarry processing equipment. Techniques applied for extraction vary with the nature and location of the deposit. Quarrying operations generally involve crushing, screening, size classification, material handling and processing operations etc.
Barite Milling Plant
In barite quarry processing, the barite typically are mined from open pits. The material then is crushed. Barite quarry crushing generally is processed in three stages: primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushing. Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, hammer crushers, and impact mills are applied in primary and secondary crushing.
After crushing, the size of the material is further reduced to 50 micrometers or smaller by grinding plants, using ball mill, vertical roller mill mills, autogenous mills. After initial crushing and screening, industrial sand and gravel are washed to remove unwanted dust and debris and are then screened and classified again.
Barite Screening Plant
Screening is the single most important part of the processing cycle of crushed stone particles. A wide variety of screen types exist, and their selection is a function of the material processed and the final product required. Inclined vibratory screens are most commonly used in stationary installations, while horizontal screens are used extensively in portable plants.
The barite from the surge pile is conveyed to a vibrating inclined screen called the scalping screen. This unit separates oversized rock from the smaller stone. The undersized material from the scalping screen is considered to be a product stream and is transported to a storage pile and sold as base material.
