Riverbed Rock Crusher Plant

The riverbed rock refers to a diverse variety of rocks which have been worn and rounded by the action of moving water. Most river rocks are found on beaches and in stream beds and can come in a range of sizes, colors and textures. River rocks have many common applications, including landscaping, or crushed as manufactured sand or aggregates.

Granite River Rocks

The most common river rocks used in landscaping and decorative construction are made of granite. Granite belongs to the "intrusive" category of igneous rock which means it formed below the earth's surface as magma slowly cooled and crystallized.

Basalt River Rocks

Basalt is an extrusive rock, meaning it formed when lava cooled above the surface of the earth's crust. Basalt has a very fine grain and ranges in color from dark green to grayish black. Basalt river rocks are the most frequently used stone in hot stone massages because they retain heat very well due to their high density.

Riverbed Rock Crushing Operation

Riverbed rock processing operations for producing aggregate or manufactured sand may include crushing, screening, size classification, material handling and storage operations. Crushing is the integral stage. Riverbed rock crushing is generally operated in three stages, primary crushing, secondary crushing and tertiary crushing.

The feeder or screens separate large boulders from finer rocks that do not require primary crushing, thus reducing the load to the primary crusher. The output from the secondary crusher and the throughs from the secondary screen are transported by conveyor to the tertiary circuit, which includes a sizing screen and a tertiary crusher.
