The Importance of Crushing and Screening Washing Plants
In our country, the use of Crushing-Screening Plants and related equipment has gained importance as a result of the development of construction activities (concrete, cement, asphalt, ballast, etc.) and the increase in the need for mining raw materials with the growth of industry and the progress of urbanization.
Crushing and Screening Plants are electro-mechanical plants used for crushed stone production (concrete, cement, asphalt, ballast etc.) in the construction sector and for processing ore produced in the mining sector. In order to keep the quality and cost of the material produced in these plants in balance, experience and knowledge is required in the production of the plant. Uğur Makina produces high quality, efficient and suitable plants as a result of working together and harmoniously with different professional groups (machinery, mining, geology, construction, electrical-electronics, software, business, economics, sales, foreign trade, etc.). In addition to the crushing and screening plants to be efficient and high quality, they should be designed by experienced people in the field in order to fully meet the demands of the customer, and the geological – structural properties of the material to be crushed should be taken into consideration in the selection of machinery and equipment. After the designed plant is designed in detail and produced by experts, field assembly should be done.
The material brought to the plant by drilling-blasting and/or direct backhoe loaders from quarries or streams is generally subjected to three different crushing processes. As a result of these crushing processes, which are called primary, secondary and tertiary, the material is passed through sieves and classified in desired sizes, if the material needs to be washed, it is washed and the final stage of crushed stone (aggregate) production is completed. The product obtained is sent to asphalt plants for road construction and to concrete plants for reinforced concrete structures.
In the mining sector, the crushing and screening plant is the first phase of size reduction. The ore extracted from the mine by drilling-blasting and/or directly extracted by backhoe loaders and brought to the plant; is subjected to three different crushing processes in accordance with the process type. The ore, which is sifted through suitable sieves and reduced in size, is sent to the grinding circuit after the crushing cycle if deemed necessary according to the appropriate process.
