How to Choose The Right Aggregate Crushing Equipment
Primary crushers are first in a typical size reduction operation. Primaries like our Mega-Slam™ horizontal shaft impactor are commonly used in the aggregates industry to handle large feed sizes. The Grand-Slam™ HSI is well suited as secondary crusher for aggregate production for a wide range of materials including limestone, frac sand, gravel, stone, and more. Tertiary crushers are commonly used in the aggregates industry for final particle shaping to increase cubicity, and to produce a product size beyond what is capable from a primary or secondary. This stage of crushing is typically accomplished using a vertical shaft impactor or coarse, medium-fine, or fine grinding cage mill.
Limestone, sand, and gravel are used for building and public works projects. These materials are key ingredients in cement and asphalt for the construction of roads, buildings, and bridges.
Specialty uses of limestone include the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, paint, paper, caulking, and glass. Flooring materials, carpets, and plastics all contain finely ground recycled limestone. Common antacids are virtually 100% finely ground limestone. Farmers can reuse limestone to neutralize acidity in their soils, saving money by reducing fertilizer use while improving crop yields.

Aggregate Crushing Equipment Case Studies
Cage Mill Meets Most Aglime Specifications in One Pass
The 4-Row Cage Mill allows Aglime producers to meet most state Aglime specifications in an open circuit. It will economically produce Aglime to any specification for both large and small producers. The 4-Row Cage Mill feed does not have to be dry. Clogging, jamming and plugging are eliminated. Available with capacities as low as 5 TPH up to 100 TPH, the 4-Row Cage Mill produces consistent product quality.
Limestone Quarry Increases Production Capacity to 1.5 tons Yearly
Stedman Machine and Innovative Processing Solutions, an affiliate of Stedman, worked with Duff Quarry Inc. to incorporate two large industrial crushers to handle the size of limestone crushed annually. Their previous machines required a great amount of maintenance, but with Stedman machines, Duff Quarry Inc. spends less time fixing and more time crushing. With the installed plant and crushers, the quarry can produce up to 1.5 million tons of limestone a year running at full capacity.
