Quartz, the terminology of geology, is an inorganic mineral substance which combines with the bases of silicon dioxide and contains a small amount of impurities such as Al203, CaO, MgO and so on. The appearance of quartz is a kind of transparent and non-transparent crystal, which with the milk white color and hard material. In physical and chemical property, quartz is a very stable mineral resource. The crystal of quartz subordinates to oxide mineral of trigonal system that is the low temperature quartz which can be the most wild-spread mineral species of quartz mineral. Quartz is also called silica, which is the raw material of silica sand and also of quartz fireproofing material and fire ferrosilicon.

Technological Process

The full set of quartz sand production line of Vipeak Heavy Industry provides you with comprehensive technical support. The quartz sand product line has vibrating feeder, jaw crusher, cone crusher, VSI vertical shaft impact crusher(quartz sand making machine), vibrating screen and belt conveyors and other equipment combination. According to different technical requirements, we provide combination of various types of equipment to meet customer's different process requirements. First, the quartz sands are coarsely broken by coarse crusher, then the produced coarse material are conveyed to fine crusher for further crushing, the finely crushed material conveyed into vibrating screen to be screened into two different kinds of cobblestones. Cobblestones meeting the input size requirement will be conveyed into quartz sand making machine, the other part will be returned for finely crushing. Part of the cobblestones that in the sand making machine are made into sands, and washed into finished sand by sand washing machine(optional). And the other part will be conveyed into quartz sand making machine for another crushing. The quartz sand product line is of high degree of automation, low operating costs, high crushing ratio.

Application Fields

Quartz is one of the most widely distributed mineral on the surface of Earth, and it has a quite extensive use. Far in the Stone Age, people use it to make stone axes, arrows and other simple production tools to hunt for food and fight against the enemy. In quartz clock, electronic equipment, piezoid served as standard frequency; Melting quartz can be made into glass, and the glass can be used for making optical instruments, glasses, glass tubes and other products; it can also be used as precision instrument bearings, abrasive materials, glass, ceramics and other industrial raw materials. When the quartz body contains tiny bubbles or liquid-filled fissures, it can produce a rainbow through the interference light, and can be made into fine jewelry. Napoleon's wife, Josephine Empress (Empress Josephine), has a dazzling gem collection, which is rainbow quartz made jewelry.
