Gypsum processing plants vary widely in scale and level of technology. They range from plants producing one or two tonnes per day using low-cost manual technologies, to plants of a thousand tonnes per day that are highly mechanized and capable of producing different types and grades of gypsum plaster or plaster boards.
At some gypsum plants, drying, grinding, and calcining are performed in heated impact mills. In these mills hot gas contacts gypsum as it is ground. The gas dries and calcines the ore and then conveys the stucco to a product cyclone for collection.
There are five basic stages in gypsum processing: excavation, crushing, screening, grinding, heating. Crushing the gypsum rock is advisable before processing further, especially if subsequent heating is to be done in a pan rather than a shaft kiln. The often used gpysum crushing machine in processing operation includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher, gyratory crusher, cone crusher etc.
Gypsum Powder Production Equipment
Gypsum powder production is grinding process, for example in a ball, rod, or hammer mill, is necessary if the gypsum is to be used for high quality plasterwork or for moulding, medical, or industrial applications. Unlike with other cements, such as lime and Ordinary Portland Cement, special mills for mineral grinding may not be required and the relatively soft gypsum could be pulverised in agricultural mills, which are generally widely available.
SBM has been specialized in industrial crushing and grinding technology for long history. Based on long professional experience, we developed complete range of gypsum powder production plant for sale, including ball mill, high pressure mill, hammer mill, roller mill, ultrafine mill, trapezium mill, raymond mill etc. The grinding plant capacity ranges from 80tph-1200tph, which can be applied in small scale, medium scale and large scale powder production applications.
