Before we delve into the quartz stone crusher, let’s look at what quartz stone can be crushed, fully understand the characteristics of the raw material, in order to better choose the ideal equipment.

What Is Quartz?

Quartz stone, usually we say quartz stone is a new type of stone artificially synthesized from more than 90% quartz crystals plus resin and other trace elements. It is a large-size plate pressed by a special machine under certain physical and chemical conditions, and its main material is quartz. And quartz is a kind of mineral that easily turns into liquid form by heat or pressure.

  • Types of quartz: pink quartz, green quartz, white quartz, yellow quartz.
  • Composition: It is the simplest silicon dioxide, glassy luster, no resolution surface, but with shell-like fracture.
  • Color: None, white with some gray, yellow to orange, purple, deep purple, pink, taupe, brown, black.
  • Characteristics: Not easy to break, not easy to pollute, not easy to aging, fire-resistant, non-toxic and harmless.

Can Quartz Be Crushed?

Yes, quartz can be crushed. Quartz is a hard mineral with a Mohs hardness of 7, which means it is relatively resistant to scratching and abrasion. However, with the appropriate equipment and sufficient force, quartz can be crushed into smaller particles.

What Is Crushed Quartz?

Crushed quartz is commonly used in various industries for different purposes:

  • Aggregate: Crushed quartz is often used as an aggregate material in construction applications such as concrete, asphalt, and road base. It provides strength and durability to these materials.
  • Fill Material: Crushed quartz can be used as fill material in landscaping and construction projects to fill voids, create level surfaces, or provide drainage.
  • Manufactured Quartz Products: Crushed quartz is a key ingredient in the production of manufactured quartz products such as engineered stone countertops, tiles, and slabs. These products often use crushed quartz mixed with resins and pigments to create durable and attractive surfaces.
  • Industrial Applications: Crushed quartz is used in various industrial applications such as foundry work, abrasives, filtration media, and water purification.
  • Decorative Purposes: Crushed quartz can be used for decorative purposes in landscaping, aquariums, and terrariums. It can add texture, color, and sparkle to indoor and outdoor spaces.
    The higher the content of quartz in quartz stone and the lower the amount of resin, the better the quality, the closer it is to natural and the less likely it is to deform.

How Can I Crush Quartz?

Crushing quartz can be done using various methods and equipment depending on the desired outcome and the scale of the operation. Here are some common methods:

Manual Quartz Crushing

For small-scale operations or individual specimens, quartz can be crushed manually using a heavy hammer or mallet. Place the quartz specimen on a sturdy surface, such as a solid piece of metal or a large rock, and strike it with the hammer until it fractures into smaller pieces.

Jaw quartz crushing machine

For larger quantities or more consistent crushing, a jaw crusher machine is commonly used.

Impact quartz crusher

Impact crushers are often used for secondary crushing after jaw crushers in larger operations.

Cone Crusher

Cone quartz crushers have a smaller crushing chamber and are often used for tertiary or quaternary crushing stages.

Ball Mill

In some cases, quartz can be crushed using a ball mill, which is a rotating cylindrical drum filled with steel balls or other grinding media. As the drum rotates, the balls crush the quartz into a fine powder.

Attention!!! When crushing quartz, it’s important to wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as safety glasses and gloves, to protect against flying rock fragments. Additionally, proper ventilation may be necessary when using crushing equipment to prevent exposure to dust.

What Type Of Crusher Should I Use To Crush Quartzite Rock?

When selecting a crusher for crushing quartzite rock, you should consider factors such as the desired output size, production capacity, mobility requirements, and the specific characteristics of the quartzite rock. Here are some types of quartz crushers for sale commonly used for crushing quartzite rock, both in stationary and mobile quartz crushing plants:

In fact, no matter fixed or mobile quartz stone crushing plant equipped with crushing host are jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, therefore, the final effect achieved is the same, such as the final size of the material required, the amount required, no matter stationary or mobile quartz crushing solution can be completed. It is also the choice of the type of crusher and the difference between stationary and mobile determines the amount of final product and shape size, etc.. The following is to teach you how to choose the right quartz equipment.

How to judge the crushing host you need?

  • Jaw Crusher: Primary crushing. It is suitable for stationary quartz crusher plants and provides high reduction ratios for a variety of rock types. Jaw crushers are known for their reliability and robustness.
  • Impact Crusher: High production capacity and excellent particle shape. Suitable for both stationary and mobile crushing plants.
  • Cone Crusher: Secondary or tertiary crushing of quartzite rock. They provide high reduction ratios and are suitable for producing fine and uniform-sized particles. Cone crushers are available in stationary and mobile configurations.
  • Vertical Shaft Impactor (VSI): VSI crushers are commonly used for shaping and producing artificial sand from quartzite rock. They utilize the principle of centrifugal force to accelerate the rock particles and crush them against a stationary surface. VSI quartz sand making machine is suitable for both stationary and mobile applications.

How to judge whether your project needs fixed crushing plant or mobile crushing plant?

Determining whether your project requires a stationary crushing plant or a mobile crushing plant involves considering various factors related to the project’s scope, duration, location, mobility requirements, and operational considerations. Here are some key points to help you make this decision:

Project Duration and Location:

If your project involves a fixed location with a long duration, such as a mining operation or a large construction site, a stationary crushing plant might be more suitable.

For shorter-term projects or projects that require frequent relocation, such as road construction or demolition projects, a mobile crushing plant offers greater flexibility.

Mobility Requirements:

Evaluate whether your project requires the flexibility to move the crushing equipment from one site to another frequently. If mobility is essential, a mobile crushing plant would be preferable.

If the crushing operation will be confined to a single location and there are no plans for relocation, a stationary crushing plant may be sufficient.

Operational Considerations:

Consider the operational logistics and infrastructure available at the project site. A stationary crushing plant requires permanent infrastructure, such as foundations, power supply, and access roads.

A mobile crushing plant eliminates the need for permanent infrastructure and can be set up quickly at different locations, reducing setup time and costs.

Production Capacity:

Assess the required production capacity of the crushing plant. Stationary crushing plants typically offer higher production capacities compared to mobile plants.

If your project requires high production volumes and continuous operation, a stationary crushing plant may be more suitable.

Environmental and Regulatory Factors:

Consider any environmental regulations or restrictions that may affect the operation of the crushing plant, such as noise or emissions limits. Mobile crushing plants may offer advantages in terms of compliance with environmental regulations due to their mobility and reduced impact on the surrounding environment.

Cost Considerations:

Evaluate the initial investment and operating costs associated with both stationary and mobile crushing plants.

While stationary plants may require higher initial investments, they may offer lower operating costs over the long term. Conversely, mobile plants may have lower initial costs but higher operational costs due to transportation and maintenance.
