Selection, Configuration and Price of the Stone Production Line
The factors for selecting a stone production line
The price and quality of stone production lines in the market are various. The user should consider whether the production line is suitable for him to start a project. In addition to understand the characteristics and applications of various crushing equipment, the following factors should also be taken into account:
1. The characteristics of the material
The first factor should be considered is the characteristics of materials, such as the type, hardness, and water content.
- Soft stones include: Weathered rock, limestone (bluestone), coal gangue, dolomite, shale soil, etc;
- Hard stones include: River pebbles, granite, basalt, iron ore (and other metal ores), quartz, etc.;
- Moisture content: In general, crushing equipment in stone production lines can crushing materials with a water content of less than 15%.
Wide range of applied materials
2. The size of the feeding port and discharge port
Due to the different types of equipment and different manufacturers, the size of the product is different. Therefore, when choosing a machine, the user must know the desired feeding size and discharge size, choose the appropriate crushing equipment for the stone production line.
As the indispensable primary crusher, the Jaw Crusher's feeding size is ≤1200 mm, so the size of the raw material should be less than 1200 mm. The discharge port of the crushing equipment in the production line can be adjusted (very few equipment are installed with the purlins at the discharge port which is not adjustable).
The capacity is also an important factor affecting the user's choice. It determines which machines the user should choose and which should not. In general, the larger the capacity of a stone production line is, the larger the required equipment are and so does the quantity.

4. The shape of the finished products
In the stone production line, different crushers produce different grain shapes. For example, the finished product of the impact crusher is cubic particles; the cone crusher produces more fine-grained materials; the fine crusher produces fine finished products.
5. Wearing parts
When selecting a crusher, user must consider the degree of damage to the parts which need to be replaced in the later stage of the device.
When Jaw crusher crushes the limestone, the use period of the movable jaw and the fixed jaw is 10 months, and the side guard is 8 months. The use period of the bracket and the tie rod is relatively random. When selecting the machine, it is necessary to know the information from all-round respects.
Wearing parts of crushers
Because the technology and design of the production are different, the maintenance is different. Try to choose a machine that is more convenient for later maintenance. In addition, the user must also understand whether the convenience and maintenance and the maintenance rate of the machine.
7. Crushing site
If the user's site is small, or there is a need for the site, the user should also consider the size of the crusher and the complexity of the production line.

8. The combination of crushers
On the premise of the same output, the choice of the machine is different due to the hardness of the crushed materials, especially the choice of the secondary crushers.
For example, due to its durable parts, stratified crushing and large crushing ratio, the cone crusher can crush various ores and rocks with medium and over-medium hardness. And the impact crusher can crusher the materials with medium hardness, so it is suitable for crushing soft materials.
9. After-sales service
In addition to caring about all aspects of equipment, after-sales service is also an issue that users have to consider.
Good after-sales service can solve various problems in the process of equipment use for usersin time, so that customers have no worries at all; and poor after-sales service not only affects the user's mood, but more importantly, affects the operation of the equipment and ultimately affects the customer's benefits.
The configuration of the stone production line
1. Project information
When configuring a complete stone production line, both the user and the crusher manufacturer need to make the corresponding pre-judgment according to the following information. In general, the more comprehensive the information is, the more accurate the size of the configured crushers is.
- Material type: Users can filter out which kinds of equipment through specific materials, such as granite, limestone, coal gangue, etc.;
- The capacity: The model of the equipment can be further selected by the output;
- Feeding size and discharge size: Reconfirm the requirement of whether the selected equipment can meet the requirements of the feeding size and discharge size.
2. Common configuration types

It can be seen from the above configuration that the primary crushing is often crushed by jaw crusher, and the secondary crushing is various depending on the materials.
When the materials are coal, chalk, gypsum, brick, limestone with low-hardness, a fine crusher is better to choose. When processing high-hardness materials such as pebbles, granite, marble, iron ore, choose cone or PEX series jaw crusher is more cost effective.
Factors that affect the price
For the stone production line, the price which will affect the cost input is an important issue that customers pay more attention to. So, how does the price factors affect the choice of the stone production line?
Various of crushers in stone production line
First, supply and demand
This mainly refers to the demand and supply relationship of the stone production line in the market. If the demand is greater than the supply, the price will be relatively high. On the contrary, when the supply exceeds demand, the price of the equipment will be lower.
Of course, the supply and demand relationship of the regional stone production line is different in different countries and regions, so the choice of the region has a great impact on the price.
Second, production requirements
Different production needs require different types of stone production lines. For example, a jaw crusher is required for the coarse crushing stage, a cone crusher or a impact crusher is required for the second crushing stage, and a sand making machine is required for the sand making stage.
Different crushers will cause different prices and the same type of equipment with different models will also affect the price.
Third, the manufacturer
The influence of manufacturers on the price of the production line is mainly reflected in the difference of the type of the manufacturer.
Generally speaking, if it is a consignment-type manufacturer, that is, the company has no factory, and all the equipment is purchased from other manufacturers, thereby earning the middle price difference of the equipment. Then the price of the equipment will be higher.
If it is a direct-selling manufacturer, the equipment is almost the factory price, without additional markup, so the equipment price will be lower. Thus, the choice of the type of manufacturer is also an important factor affecting the price.
