What is limestone and it uses?

The main component of limestone is calcium carbonate (CaCO3) with a Mohs hardness of 3. It can be directly broken into crushed stone aggregate for the production of building materials.

It can also be burned into quicklime through specific equipment, and quicklime can be used in large quantities for desulfurization in power plants. The quicklime will become slaked lime after absorbing moisture or adding water. The slaked lime and other materials can be mixed into limestone slurry, lime paste, etc. through a certain ratio, and are often used as coating materials, rick and tile adhesive. At the same time, limestone is also an important raw material for many industrial productions.

Limestone crushing and grinding process

Limestone has a wide range of applications. Through different processing techniques, finished products with different properties can be obtained and used in different fields. But what is mainly introduced below is the process of limestone crushing and grinding. After the limestone raw material is ground into an ultra-fine powder with a limestone ultrafine mill machine, the finished powder is used as a filler in various fields.

Stage 1: Broken
Use a jaw crusher to crush the larger limestone ore, and then use a hammer crusher to further crush the limestone to meet the grinding fineness (≦20mm).

Stage 2: Feeding system
The belt conveyor (plus iron remover) sends the limestone that meets the grinding fineness into the bucket elevator. Then the material is sent to the raw material bin for grinding by the elevator. A belt feeder is installed at the lower part of the raw material warehouse to evenly feed the limestone into the mill.

Stage 3: Grinding and powder selection system
Limestone enters the ultrafine mill to be ground. The ground

powder passes through the classifier along with the airflow,
and the powder that does not meet the fineness is sent back to the grinding chamber to continue grinding.
Qualified powder enters the cyclone powder collector and pulse dust collector with the airflow to be collected, and is sent to the screw conveyor from the lower discharge port.

Stage 4: Finished product conveying system
The discharge port of the screw conveyor is equipped with a pneumatic conveying system to convey the finished product to the finished product warehouse. The excess gas is filtered by the dust collector on the top of the silo.

Stage 5: Dust removal system
The whole system is equipped with three pulse dust collectors. Install exhaust vents at all dust-raising points to ensure that the entire system is free of dust leakage. Realize dust-free operation on site.

Stage 6: Control system
This system is equipped with an intelligent PLC control cabinet and an upper computer. Realize the start-stop, monitoring, and interlock linkage functions of all equipment in the entire system. And reserve DNS interface, which can realize remote control.

Introduction to equipment configuration of limestone powder production line:

The limestone milling production line is important equipment for milling limestone. The production line includes a crushing system, transportation system, grinding system, powder selection system, powder collection system, dust removal system, control system, and so on. The milled limestone can be used as a filler for rubber, plastic, paper, toothpaste, cosmetics, etc.

Application of limestone ultrafine mill finished powder:

The main component of limestone is calcium carbonate (CaCO3), which can be made into heavy calcium carbonate by mechanical crushing and ultra-fine grinding. After calcining, digestion, carbonation, separation, drying, and classification, light calcium carbonate, and nano calcium carbonate can be prepared. As an important inorganic filler, calcium carbonate is widely used in coatings, inks, plastics, rubber, papermaking, medicine, daily chemical industries, and other industries.

Adding calcium carbonate can improve the dispersion, vulcanization elongation, tear resistance, compression set, flex resistance, and crack resistance of rubber products.


Calcium carbonate can improve the whiteness of the paper, light scattering, and fineness of the paper surface. And the added paper has higher bulk density, good plasticity, and softness.

Calcium carbonate can increase the volume of plastics and reduce product costs. Improve the dimensional stability, hardness and rigidity of plastics, and improve the processing properties, heat resistance and astigmatism properties of plastics.

After surface treatment, calcium carbonate has a higher yield value when applied to the ink. It can form a colloidal structure with a certain strength and can control the penetration of ink into the paper fibers so that more resin remains on the surface of the paper, and the formed ink film has high gloss and good transparency.

Modification of limestone powder:

Limestone is widely used, but its performance can be improved by surface modification. The surface-modified limestone powder is used as a pigment and a filler in the coating industry with superior performance.

How to modify limestone powder?

When grinding limestone with SBM ultrafine grinding mill machine, a powder modifier can also be added directly to mix and grind with the material. The finished powder after grinding is the modified powder. But the quality of powder modified by powder surface coating machines will be better.

SBM Powder Surface Coating Machine can realize the surface modification of limestone powder and improve the application performance of limestone. If there is a need for powder modification, our designers will directly configure the equipment in the production line plan.
