Characteristics of sand manufacturing machine

  • 1. The product particle size is good. With fine crushing and coarse grinding functions. The product is cubic, has good granularity, and has very low flake content; 30% higher than the traditional sand making and shaping effect.
  • 2. New impeller design, optimize the flow of materials, improve the output by 30%.
  • 3. Strong ability to pass non-crushed materials, little influence by the moisture content of materials, the water content can be about 8%.
  • 4. Low consumption of wearing parts: the double throwing combination of the rotor extends the wear time and protects the rotor body from damage due to excessive wear.
  • 5. High crushing rate and energy saving. The stone hit the iron crushing cavity, with higher crushing efficiency.
  • 6. Easy adjustment of feed opening: a movable control flower is designed and installed under the feeding cavity, and the size of the feeding opening can be adjusted by adjusting the screw outside the feeding cavity.

After learning about the characteristics and advantages of crushed sand making machine, let’s have a look at the components.

What are the parts of sand making crusher machine?

AIMIX sand making machine is mainly composed of seven parts, such as feeding hopper, divider, vortex crushing chamber, an impeller body, main shaft assembly, base, transmission device, and motor. Next, we will briefly understand the definition or characteristics of each component.

  • 1. Feed hopper: The structure of the feed hopper is an inverted prismatic body (or cylinder) with a wear-resistant ring at the feed inlet, and the incoming material from the feeding equipment enters the crusher through the feed hopper.
  • 2. Separator: The separator is installed in the upper part of the vortex crushing chamber, the function of the separator is to divert the material coming from the feed hopper.
  • 3. Vortex Crushing Chamber: The structure of the vortex crushing chamber is shaped as an annular space composed of two cylinders, the impeller rotates at high speed in the vortex crushing chamber, the vortex crushing chamber can also reside in the material, forming a material lining layer, the crushing process of the material occurs in the vortex crushing chamber, the material lining layer separates the crushing action of the vortex crushing chamber wall so that the crushing action is limited to the material, playing the role of wear-resistant self-lining.
  • 4. Impeller: The impeller is the key component of the vertical impact crusher. The material enters the center of the impeller from the center feed tube of the upper part of the impeller.
  • 5. Base: The vortex crushing chamber, main shaft assembly, motor, and transmission device are mounted on the base. The base structure is shaped with a four-pronged space in the middle and the center of the four-pronged space is used to install the main shaft assembly, and the two sides form the discharge channel. At the longitudinal ends of the base, there are installed double motors, the base can be installed on the bracket, or directly on the foundation.
  • 6. Transmission: Belt drive mechanism driven by single motor or double motor, above 75kw is double motor drive.
  • 7. Bracket: Users can consider configuring brackets or not according to different working places of crusher – open-air operation or indoor operation.
  • 8. Lubrication system: The sand making machine China adopts special centralized lubrication with automotive grease, and the lubrication parts are the upper bearing and lower bearing of the main shaft assembly, and the oil pipe is led to the outside of the machine for the convenience of oil injection.

But one of the most important components is vibrating feeder, show you three types of vibration feeders and specifications for your reference.

Next, let’s see the working process of sand making.

How does a sand making machine work?

  • The wheel loader sends the raw materials into the feeder, and then the materials are sent into the crushing cavity of the stone crusher sand making machine by the feeder;
  • Then, under the action of centrifugal force generated by the high-speed rotation, the materials collide with another part of the material in the form of umbrella shunt around the impeller;
  • After that, in the powerful vortex formed between the impeller and the casing, they again or repeatedly collide with each other, rub, and crush;
  • Finally, it is discharged from the lower discharge port of the sand making machine to complete the crushing of materials.

This is a complete sand making process. Now, let’s see how to maintain the small sand making machine.

Maintenance of stone sand making machine

  • 1. The operators need to stop regularly to open the observation door to observe the internal wear of the impact sand making machine, the wear degree of the central feed tube, cone cap, impeller upper and lower runner liner, circumferential guard plate, wear-resistant block, wear should be replaced or repaired in a timely manner, replace the wear-resistant block should be replaced at the same time to ensure that the weight of the wear-resistant block is the same.
  • 2. It is strictly forbidden to open the observation door to observe the internal working condition during the working of the sand making machine for sale to avoid danger. The impeller body is found to be worn and replaced in time to find the manufacturer to repair it. Special attention, without the consent of the manufacturer, is strictly forbidden to make the impeller by oneself.
  • 3. The size of the transmission triangle tape tensioning force of the sand making machine should be adjusted appropriately to ensure that the triangle tape is evenly stressed, and when the double motor is driven, the triangle tape on both sides should be grouped together to make the length of each group as consistent as possible, in order to ensure that the sand making machine from stone is energy efficient.
  • 4. The sand making machine works for 400 hours when the appropriate amount of grease should be added, to work to 2000 hours when the spindle assembly should be opened for cleaning if the work to 7200 hours after the time must be replaced by a new bearing.

So how about the price of sand making machine? Here are some tips for you.

Ways to get the best sand making machine price

Now there are many online rely on the principle of low price to attract the eyes of customers, but in fact, after communication and understanding found that it is not the low price you want. Moreover, a low price doesn’t mean good quality. Therefore, customers need to strictly check the price quoted by the manufacturer when buying this large sand-making machine. Here are a few suggestions for you, I hope you can use these strategies when you negotiate with the manufacturer.

  • 1. Consult the raw materials used to produce the sand making machine. For example, you can ask the manufacturer what material this sand-making line is produced from, such as steel, but steel is also divided into grades, and the price of different steel is also different, so you need to refine to the specific steel model, and then make a comparison with other manufacturers.
  • 2. Ask about the low cost of that raw material. If you do not have requirements for raw materials, but simply want to invest in a sand making equipment, you can ask which kind of cost is low, the reduction of production costs is very beneficial to entrepreneurs; if you have specific requirements for raw materials, you can also ask about the return on investment, so that you can easily make a plan.
  • 3. Ask about the impact of production capacity on price. Capacity is the most direct impact on the price of the product, but this is very difficult to change because of the price because you will be limited by a variety of factors, such as the duration of the requirements, there are production requirements, this must choose the most appropriate capacity.
  • 4. Choose reliable sand making machine manufacturers. For this kind of large engineering equipment, in the process of use or use for a long time, is certainly the need for repair and maintenance, finding the right manufacturer is vital, and will provide great support for the later after-sales. If you find a manufacturer who only gave you this deal, and then never contacted, you will need to spend extra high maintenance costs on this machine.
