Limestone Mining Process-Limestone Machinery For Processing Of Limestone

Limestone Introduction

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and/or aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO3).

Like most other sedimentary rocks, limestones are composed of grains; however, most grains in limestone are skeletal fragments of marine organisms such as coral or foraminifera. Other carbonate grains comprising limestones are ooids, peloids, intraclasts, and extraclasts. Some limestones do not consist of grains at all, and are formed completely by the chemical precipitation of calcite or aragonite, i.e. travertine.

Limestone Mining Process

limestone-mining-processLimestone is important building materials, and raw materials for cement production. Natural limestone is huge, we must crush them into suitable size through limestone crushing process or grind them into sand or powder in limestone grinding process.

If the product is sand, the limestone particles must do stone shapping through sand making machine. If you need the stone powder, using limestone grinding machines to grind these crushed limestone particles into powder. In this grinding process, hammer mill, ball mill, vertical mill are very ideal.

Limestone Stone Machinery

Limestone mining process needs limestone machinery. In this process, we usually use jaw crusher, cone crusher, mobile crusher such as limestone mobile jaw crusher, mobile impact crusher, mobile cone crusher, crawler type mobile crusher. These machines are usually used to processing limestone into smaller size. According to the different products of the size, we choose the different crushing process. Usually limestone crushing plant includes primary crushing process and secondary crushing process.
