The construction aggregates business consists of crushed stone, sand, and gravel products, which serve as the foundation for numerous infrastructure projects that are critical to our way of life. PICS INTERNATIONAL designs and manufactures equipment for all stages of the construction aggregates manufacturing process, from crushing the material to the desired size and sorting the various sizes for specialised uses, to increasing fines recovery and minimising settling ponds.
PICS INTERNATIONAL has a number of crushing technologies available to help aggregate companies better control the size and form of their output. Compression, impact, attrition, and shear forces are used to reduce and refine aggregate material in the company's primary, secondary, and tertiary crushers. Material testing is available in PICS INTERNATIONAL 's in-house laboratory to ensure that you get a machine that meets your crushing needs.
By using moving apron pans, vibration, reciprocating plates, or rollers, PICS INTERNATIONAL Feeders transport aggregate material to both the primary and downstream operations. The Feeders are custom-designed for the material size, weight, and required throughput of the application, and then programmed to feed the aggregate at a fixed rate to match the conveyor belt or crusher capacity. Some are built with the capability of scalping the feed in order to filter out undersized products.
Washing and Classifying
By eliminating superfluous water and rejecting harmful material, Picson's comprehensive array of washing and classifying equipment helps aggregate companies fulfil standards. Sizing, sorting, and dewatering are also possible using the company's equipment. PICS INTERNATIONAL will give aggregate companies with a comprehensive system model, as well as product output and waste forecasts, if they only inform PICS INTERNATIONAL 's skilled sales and process engineering teams their feed gradation and target size. Because needs differ from one site to the next, PICS INTERNATIONAL 's wide selection of equipment guarantees that each customer gets the optimum solution for their washing and classifying application and the best return on their equipment investment.
To remove moisture from finished goods, PICS INTERNATIONAL offers one of the industry's biggest collections of dewatering equipment, including Dewatering Screens, Filter Presses, Fine Material Screw Washers, Hydrocyclones and Separators, and Thickeners/Clarifiers. PICS INTERNATIONAL 's dewatering equipment results in a product that is drier and drip-free. By decreasing or eliminating settling or tailings ponds, it also helps companies build a sustainable environment and plants with permitting and regulatory concerns.
When it comes to sample accuracy and precision, certain applications in the aggregates sector might necessitate very tight tolerances. PICS INTERNATIONAL offers a wide range of sample tools for aggregates manufacturers to check the quality of their product. Mechanical Sampling Systems by PICS INTERNATIONAL are intended to gather samples from a moving belt, providing a safer collecting technique as well as an accurate approach to check product quality.
The process of combining multiple materials to create a new, homogenous product is known as mixing/blending. When these components are mixed, a new, consistent product is created. The Pug Mill Mixers/Road Foundation Mixers from PICS INTERNATIONAL are developed for a variety of industries and purposes, including blending road base materials.
When it comes to fines recovery, PICS INTERNATIONAL has a lot of options. Aggregate manufacturers may use this technology to comply with permits and environmental standards, minimise pond maintenance expenses, and extend the life of their ponds. Tailings/settling ponds can be decreased or eliminated in some circumstances, freeing up time and land resources. Producers of aggregates who collect fines may uncover a potentially marketable product.
Natural mineral resources, such as solid rock formations like limestone and granite, and loose sand and gravel deposits, are used to make construction aggregates. The coarse and fine mineral components of Portland cement concrete and asphalt are the most typical structural uses of construction aggregates. Aggregates are utilised in common products such as paint, light bulbs, and white appliances, as well as for road base and gravel highways. Other manufacturing processes, such as steel mill slag, provide construction aggregates as byproducts.
