Sand Material Introduction

silica sand, artificial sand

silica sand, artificial sand

Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. The composition of sand is highly variable, depending on the local rock sources and conditions, but the most common constituent of sand in inland continental settings and non-tropical coastal settings is silica (silicon dioxide, or SiO2), usually in the form of quartz.

sand production line construction

Sand production line is the mining equipment units that make raw gravel, silica, granite, limestone and quartz materials into aggregate and sand which will be used in construction directly with different size and even cubical shape. Sand production line is widely used in construction projects like building, road construction and railway construction, etc.

ISO 14688 grades sands as fine, medium and coarse with ranges 0.063 mm to 0.2 mm to 0.63 mm to 2.0 mm, sand is commonly divided into five sub-categories based on size: very fine sand (1⁄16 – ⅛ mm diameter), fine sand (⅛ mm – ¼ mm), medium sand (¼ mm – ½ mm), coarse sand (½ mm – 1 mm), and very coarse sand (1 mm – 2 mm). These sizes are based on the Krumbein phi scale, where size in Φ = -log2D; D being the particle size in mm. On this scale, for sand the value of Φ varies from −1 to +4, with the divisions between sub-categories at whole numbers.


The sand is distributed in South Africa,india, Spaine, Swedene, Thailand, United States, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Kenya, Indonesia, Pakistan


Brick: Manufacturing plants add sand to a mixture of clay and other materials for manufacturing bricks.

Mortar: Sand is mixed with cement and sometimes lime to be used in masonry construction.

Concrete: Sand is often a principal component of this critical construction material.

Sand Processing

In silica sand processing operation, the mined mineral from silica sand quarry deposit will be fed into jaw crusher or impact crusher for primary crushing, after primary crushing; the crushed silica sand is conveyed to cone crusher and VSI crusher for fine crushing.

And then, the fine crushed silica sand will be sieved into different grades by vibrating screen. Washing plant will be applied to clean up the crushed silica sand to remove the impurity and waste materials. SBM has been optimized the silica sand processing plant flow chart, the whole production process work smoothly and high efficiency.

Washing is the simplest and lowest cost technique of cleaning silica sand. In some of the very pure deposits which are without any heavy minerals, high quantities of clay and silt, and no surface staining, washing inadequate to produce acceptable grade product.

In the operation, water is added to the sand and is commonly pumped to a cyclone for desliming. The movement of the slurry passing through the pump and pipeline is sufficient to release the little quantity of fines or clay which is in the ore body. Once the minor quantities of fines or clay have been released from the silica sand they can be removed through a various techniques.

SBM Sand Making Project Video

Video of Sand Making Project Binh Duong, VietNam Lucky Co, Ltd

Binh Duong, VietNam Lucky Co, Ltd has 150mm size A grade quartz lumps , and want to convert into 0.1mm to 6 mm size quartz sand and 400 mesh powder. 400 mesh powder is required 480 tons per month, while 0.1mm to 6mm 720 tons per month. Because of A grade quartz costly, they want to take out the minerals through ball mill.

SBM design the complete quartz sand and powder production line. Quartz firstly go through jaw crusher for making small size with 10 to 20mm, then through hopper go into the ball mill. Of course, sbm also supplies services inclusive of installation & trial running.

To determine the sand particle size distribution is good or bad, it is necessary to do the screening test.

The screening test will show two different types of results., Well aware of the cumulative percentage of sieve sieve.Second, the fineness modulus. These two results are accumulated percentage of sieve the contrast or calculated.

Technology Standard

Sand is used to modify soils and construct turf systems for various sports turf applications to promote proper air and water management. Without a doubt sand is the most extensively used amendment on a weight basis to modify turf systems. The use of sand has been extensively reviewed by the United States Golf Association (USGA) in regards to putting green construction. A wide range of sports turf applications such as football, baseball, race tracks and soccer, are utilizing the concepts of the USGA putting green construction guidelines to design and build turf systems for high performance demands. Not all sports programs have the budget for sand based sports fields and will utilize sand in other ways to improve the performance of a field.

Sand is often used in conjunction with the native soil in what is known as a by-pass system. The Cambridge™ system is a commercially available system that uses sand in trenches and for creating a permeable sand cap over the trenches to remove water during periods of high rainfall. There are several designs that use a by-pass approach with sand. We are often approached about mixing sand with native soils to improve permeability and to lower excessive water holding values. The mixing of sand with soil is not as effective as some are led to believe. If the proper sand particle size is used and the correct amount of sand is added, some benefit can be realized. Usually the amount of sand necessary to increase the overall sand content of the rootzone is so great, that the money and energy is better spent on by-pass approaches or maintenance.

The amount of sand particles in relation to the size of the particle is very important to how a sand will function in various implementations. Most people are familiar with a particle size analysis. It is important to understand the definition of particle sizes and how they are determined. To accurately assess the particle size distribution of a sand or soil, a full mechanical analysis should be performed. A full mechanical analysis involves extracting the silt and clay from the sample and sieving the resulting sand fraction. By removing the silt and clay, the sand distribution is accurately assessed. If a sieve analysis (known as a drop sieve) is performed without the removal of silt and clay, small aggregates of silt and clay can be perceived as sand particles and a false impression of the material may be generated. If you are in the market for a sand for any agronomic purpose, make sure a full mechanical analysis has been performed.
