Dolomite quarrying is also known dolomite extraction, quarrying process consists of removing blocks or pieces of stone from an identified and unearthed geologic deposit. The first step in quarrying is to gain access to the dolomite deposit. Quarrying operations typically include drilling holes along the perimeter of the bench followed by cutting the stone out of the deposit. Drilling and blasting is done with heavy duty down the hole and top hammer drill rigs to a preset pattern. Once the bench is cut or split loose from the deposit, heavy equipment is used to lift the dolomite bench and transfer it to further quarrying equipment.
Dolomite Quarrying Equipment
The extracted dolomite 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.
Dolomite Quarry Crushing Plant
Crushing is integral and primary stage in dolomite quarrying process. SBM always provide cutting edge crushing solution for quarrying, mining, construction, recycling applications. With our experience on most continents, our crushing plants are guaranteed to always perform excellent even in the most extreme conditions.
The material is dumped into the primary jaw crusher hopper. Undersize from a grizzly passes over a vibrating screen to remove the fines. Primary crushed material passes through a system of surge hoppers, secondary and tertiary impact crushers, VSI crushers, cone crusher, sizing screens and conveyors to produce crushed aggregates of various gradings.
