Silica Sand Processing Machinery in Malaysia

Silica Sand in Malaysia

Currently, the raw silica sand deposits are being utilised in low value-added industries such as in casting and foundries, ceramics, glass and glass products, cement and chemical sub-sectors. Substantial silica-sand resources are found throughout Malaysia comprising largely of natural sand deposits and ex-tin mine tailings. Malaysia produces large volume of silica sand materials and imports the high quality material needed for optical and laboratory glassware industries. SBM has installed thousands of silica sand processing machinery in Malaysia.

Silica Sand Processing Plant

Silica sand is used throughout the world, and in so many different ways it is hard to imagine a world without it. From water filtration, to glass manufacture, to industrial casting, to sand blasting, to producing concrete, to adding texture to slick roads, silica sand impacts every aspect of daily life.

Recycling of silica sands was limited to some foundry sands, particularly those used for making cores and molds with no-bake resin-bonded sands, some abrasive and airblasting sands, and, increasingly, post consumer glass and scrap glass that substitutes for batch mix (including industrial sand).

Silica Sand Processing Machinery

The raw materials for processing silica sand generally are extracted from open pits of naturally occurring quartz-rich sand and sandstone. The mined rock is transported to the processing site. The material then is crushed. According to the degree of cementation, three stages of crushing may be required to produce the desired size reduction. Gyratory crushers, jaw crushers, roll crushers, impact mills and cone crushers are used for primary and secondary crushing.


After crushing, the size of the material is further reduced to 50 micrometers or smaller by grinding, using ball mill, raymond mill, autogenous mills, hammer mills, or ultrafine mills. The ground material then is classified by wet screening plant, dry screening machine, air classification machine, and dried by drying plant. We provide high quality silica sand processing machinery in Malaysia.
