Industrial Silica Sand

Industrial silica sand refers to sand having the composition and grain size distribution required for industrial applications. Specifically, industrial silica sand consists of well rounded, sand composed of almost pure quartz grains. Quartz, or silicon dioxide, is one of the most common minerals found on the Earth's surface and is found in rocks like granite, gneiss, and sandstone. Industrial silica sand is a higher value product than sand and gravel used in the construction industry.

Industrial silica sand typically are mined from open pits of naturally occurring quartz-rich sand and sandstone. The material will be first crushed. Depending on the degree of cementation, several stages of crushing may be required to produce the desired size reduction. Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, roll crushers, and impact mills are used for primary and secondary crushing.

After crushing, the size of the material is further reduced to 50 mm or smaller by grinding, using ball mills, raymond mill, hammer mills, trapezium mill or ultrafine mills. The ground material then is classified by wet screening, dry screening, or air classification.

Dry grind processing is ideal for products with particle size specifications of 2-3 microns average or larger. Dry grinding offers many potential cost savings. It can cut transportation costs because materials can be shipped without additional liquid weight.

Grinding in ball mills is an important technological process applied to reduce the size of particles which may have different nature and a wide diversity of physical, mechanical and chemical characteristics. Silica sand grinding ball mill is excellent choice in silica processing operation. If you are interested, please contact us for more information. We will help you design the best solution.
