Soapstone is a metamorphic rock which is main rock among igneous and sedimentary rock. this rocks forms by high heat and pressure. It is magnesium silicate mineral. It is a form of talc.
Soapstone is type of soft stone and it doesn’It need to quarry with saw or other high mining machineries. It can be quarry easily. It founds underground the surface. Take outs by machine and then through selection process obtains different varieties of soapstone according to chemical properties.
Drilling: Rock hand drill machine and rock LT4 drill machine is used for Soapstone Mining or quarrying. Hand drill used is for making hole in stone quarry for quarry processing. It consists of Hydraulic system with strong power. In this process, fix the machine where hole to be done. Fix the position of hole drilling. (Width of hole) 101mm to above 254mm are available bits as per hole requirement. (length of hole) insert the rode according to hole size, Such as if requirement is to 15feet, we must fix the machine at the position of drill, and then we need to inset the rod of size 5 feet. We need to use 3 rods of 5 feet to drill 15feet hole.
Blasting: Explosive materials are used for blasting in quarry. Blasting process needs for easy mining and block leave the floor.
After blasting and drilling, Soapstone material needs to load or unload through earth moving machine.
After blasting process, Soapstone raw needs go through a selection process. In selection process different varieties of Soapstone obtains according to chemical properties.
Crusher plant is main stage for soapstone processing. In this unit soapstone could be crush according to grain size.
The raw material of soapstone must be processed by Soapstone crusher. Soapstone crusher is very important equipment used for crushing and grinding soapstone. Crusher composes of: Jaw crusher, Cone crusher, Impact crusher, Portable crusher, Mobile crusher and Gyratory crusher.
Grinding processing completes with ball mill or grinding mill.
With the grinder roll, grinding ring and steel balls it grinds soapstone into soapstone powder.
Jaw crusher, cone crusher, grinding ball mill, raymond powder mill, gyratory crusher, portable crusher plant, belt conveyor and tools & machinery used for soapstone mining and processing.
