Granite Quarry

 Description



Granite Quarrying:
Granite is igneous rock stone. Granite produces from intense high heat. Mainly granite composed of feldspar, quartz, orthoclase or microcline. Granite is the hardest natural product on earth. Granite Quarrying is the multistep process.  
Blasting:
Through blasting, granite rocks leave the quarry floor easily. Blasting process with explosive material processed through blasting compressors machines.
Extracting block through wire saw:
Granite is hardest stone, hence it needs extracting through diamond wire saw and chain saw.
Wire saw requires less Manpower, it based on modern technique, perfect for vertical and horizontal cuts. This machine can perform both dry and wet cutting.
Creating space between blocks:
Hydraulic Pressure Jack used for stone quarrying. It mainly used for create gap between two big blocks. Jack fits into gap according to jack size into place of cut. After fitting, jack attaches with the hydraulic Pressure pump. Due to pressure of the jack, gap arises in the blocks...
Air pressure bag is also used for create space between blocks after cut the blocks from the quarry. It creates very strong core force to blocks; by force stone blocks get separate. Security is very crucial phase while using air pressure bag. 
Transporting Blocks:
Transporting equipments such as Derrick Crane, Small Crane, Back Hoe Loader and Excavator used for lifting, loading, unloading, placing, digging up, carrying material. Both Mobile cranes and stable crane are used for transporting materials.
