With a ban on river sand mining in India by the Supreme Court, manufactured sand has become one of the most viable alternatives.
“We’re seeing a steady rise in the demand for sand-making crushers from the commercial segments and road projects,” says R S Raghavan, Managing Director, Proman Infrastructure Services. “The prospects for sand-making crushers are good, especially for suppliers of quality crushers that make manufactured sand as good as or even better than natural riverbed sand, thus helping to conserve a natural resource.”
Companies such as Mines & Rock, Jyothi Stone Crushers and Bhairava Stone in Karnataka have deployed Proman’s combination of VSG crushers and Wash Sand Group to efficiently produce plaster and manufactured sand, while Euro Industries and Jindal South West have deployed Proman’s solution to convert slag to sand.
Sandvik’s patented CV200 Series Autogenous versatile VSI crushers produce high-quality artificial sand and can perform well with the most difficult materials. Sandvik’s CV229 VSI impact crusher can also be used as a pre-grinder to mills in the mining sector.
