How to Start a Stone Quarry Business

Quarrying Industry

Quarrying refers to the activity of obtaining or extracting or attempting to obtain or extract any rock, stone, gravel, sand, clay or similar material for commercial or industrial applications. Construction aggregates and dimension stone are basic materials for the construction industry. About 70% of aggregates is obtained from hard rock quarries by drilling and blasting, and about 30% is extracted by direct digging from sand and gravel pits. Quarrying industry plays important role in economy development.

Furthermore, our machines are designed and constructed to work together in perfect harmony for more effective loading and shorter cycle times. Together, they create a highly effective production line that focuses on safety, economy and availability - the cornerstones of a profitable aggregate and quarry business. BYR quarry processing equipment features high productivity and low fuel consumption, they’re designed and built for high operator comfort and safety, as well as easy access for daily maintenance and service.

Quarry Crushing Process

The primary crusher is fed via a chute and vibrating feeder. Primary crushing is usually by a jaw crusher consisting of a heavy metal plate which moves backwards and forwards against a fixed plate.

The output from the primary crusher is conveyed onto the primary stockpile from which the secondary crusher is fed. There is a screen house just after the secondary crusher which screens out small size crushed stone and dust onto blinding stockpiles.

The output from the final cone crushers is conveyed to a screen house where large multiple deck screens sort the crushed stone into the required aggregate sizes. Each stage of crushing produces progressively smaller sized stones. In order to produce a usable end-product, the crushed rock has to be screened into various size categories.

Crushing Plant in Quarry Business

Jaw Crusher

Jaw crusher is designed to crush all rock types from the hardest granites to abrasive ones and recycle materials. Combining with high quality cast steel components and tip-top ball roller bearing, the unique design fully ensures high yielding and efficiency, low cost crushing process. It has been the world favorite primary crushing plant in mining, construction, quarry, and recycling applications.

Impact Crusher

BYR impact crusher is a strong competitive package of intelligent productivity on tracks tailored for the demanding crushing contractor market. It is ideally suited for crushing medium hard stone like limestone and all mineral-based demolition materials, such as bricks, asphalt and concrete. The crushing capacities ranges from 80tph to 1500tph.

Cone Crusher

The cone crusher features high capacity and reliability, in addition to top quality and cubical end products as well as low wear part costs. This new cone plant is designed for efficient secondary and fine crushing and screening applications, where high throughput, a high-quality end product transport dimensions are needed.
