What is the structure of the sand making machine?

The sand making machine is composed of the feed hopper, distributor, vortex crushing chamber, impeller, protecting plates, base, transmission device and lubrication system, etc.

Feed hopper

The structure of the feed hopper is an inverted prism (or cylinder). The feed port is equipped with a wear-resistant ring. The incoming material from the feeding equipment enters the crusher through the feed hopper.


The role of the distributor is to separate the incoming material from the hopper, so that part of the material directly enters the impeller and is ejected out, and the other part of the material is impacted and crushed by the high-speed material ejected from the impeller to improve the crushing efficiency.

Vortex crushing chamber

The crushing process of materials occurs in the vortex crushing chamber. The wall of the crushing chamber is separated by the material lining layer, so that the crushing is limited to the materials and plays the role of wear resistance and self-lining.

The structure of the sand making machine

The structure of the sand making machine


The impeller, a hollow cylinder made of special materials, is the key element of the vertical shaft impact crusher. The impeller accelerates the material to a speed of 60-75 m/s and then ejects it.

Protecting plates

The protecting plate is an indispensable part of the vertical shaft impact crusher.

The protecting plates of Fote sand making machine can be turned around after partial wear, which can improve the material utilization rate and increase the service life by more than 48%.


Vortex crushing chamber, spindle mechanism, motor and transmission device are all installed on the base.

The center of the base is used to install the spindle mechanism, and the discharge channel is formed on both sides. The dual motors are installed on the longitudinal ends of the base.

Transmission device

The belt transmission mechanism driven by a single or double motor (above 75KW) is adopted.

Lubrication system

It adopts special-grade centralized lubrication with automotive greases. The lubrication parts are the upper bearing and lower bearing of the spindle mechanism.

How does the sand making machine work?

The material flows into the vortex crushing cavity from the upper part of the machine. The high-speed rotating impeller crushes the material scattered around the impeller in the form of an umbrella.

After the materials collide with each other, the material layer between the impeller and the casing will form a vortex flow for multiple collisions, friction and crushing, and then be discharged from the lower discharge hopper. The particle size of the finished product is controlled by the screening plant.

During the whole crushing process, the materials will be crushed by themselves through impacting each other, which reduces pollution and prolongs the mechanical wear time. The ingenious air circulation inside the vortex cavity eliminates dust pollution.

What are the factors that affect the sand production rate of sand making machine?

Fote sand making machine working on site

Fote sand making machine working on site

  • The characteristics of crushed materials (material hardness, strength, humidity, viscosity, composition, etc.).
  • The fineness requirements of finished sand (The lower the fineness of artificial sand, the lower the sand making rate of the sand making machine may be).
  • The feeding amount (Generally the larger the feeding amount, the higher the efficiency. But there is an extreme point).
  • The speed of the impeller (Generally the higher the impeller speed, the better the crushing efficiency).
  • Whether the operation is standard and the maintenance is regular.
  • Scheme design of sand production line.

FAQ about sand making machines

How to choose from the crushing methods of "rock on rock" and "rock on iron"?

How to choose from the crushing methods of "rock on rock" and "rock on iron"?

The crushing method of "rock on rock" is suitable for materials above medium hard with high abrasion-resistance, such as basalt, quartz, granite, etc. Under the working condition of "rock on rock", the finished product has a better grain shape and more powder content.

The crushing method of "rock on iron" is suitable for materials below medium hard with low abrasiveness, such as limestone, dolomite, etc. Under the working condition of "rock on iron", the crushing efficiency is higher, the wear cost of protecting plates is higher, but the finished product grain type is slightly worse.

In addition, "rock on rock" is suitable for shaping, "rock on iron" is suitable for sand making.
