Investment Opportunity

I am looking forward for an investor for my granite quarry which is located near Bangalore. There is great demand for manufactured sand in Bangalore.

M Sand

The natural river sand was the cheapest sand resource. However, the excessive mining of river bed to meet the increasing demand for sand in construction industry has led to the ecological imbalance in the state. Now the sand available in the riverbed is very coarse and contains very high percentage of silt and clay. The silt and the clay presence in the sand reduce the strength of the concrete and holds dampness. The natural river sand is a product of sedimentation. Mica, coal, fossils and other organic impurities are present in the river sand above certain percentage which makes the sand useless for concrete work.

M Sand Applications

M-Sand is manufactured sand, obtained from specific hard rock (granite) using the state-of-the-art international crushing technology. Its various advantages over river sand have made it favourite manufactured sand with quality conscious builders.

M-sand is crushed aggregates produced from hard granite stone which is cubically shaped with grounded edges, washed and graded with consistency to be used as a substitute of river sand. The high quality M-sand is widely applied in various construction applications, such as buildings, highways, railways, airports etc. If you want to find M-sand crusher machine manufacturer in India, please feel free to contact us.

VSI Crusher for M Sand

M Sand was used as a fine aggregate. It is manufactured in a processing plant by crushing stone making use of the vertical shaft impact (VSI) crusher, which is working by rock-on-rock principle. Due to the use of this technology the sand particles can be shaped very similarly to that of the naturally available fine aggregate. During the process of manufacturing, sieving is done using water jet and the fine separation by screw classifiers. The sand obtained by means of this method is clean, durable and has the desired particle size distribution.

M Sand Crusher Machine Manufacturer

The choice of the crusher machine for M-sand production is based on source rock properties such as hardness and the application to which the sand will be applied. Zenith is world leading supplier and manufacturer of sand crushing plant. We provide complete range of m sand crushing machinery, including jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, VSI crusher etc.

The sand making machine can be equipped with sand screening plant, washing machine and drying plant to be a complete sand production line. We have installed thousands of sand production lines in India.

Rationale for the deal

Why M Sand?

With river sand becoming scarce and being sold at a premium following the Madras High Court restrictions on sand mining in rivers Cauvery and Tamirabharani, the need to find an alternative concrete aggregate material to river sand in construction works has assumed greater importance now.

Engineers and specialists have come out with their own ideas to minimise the use of river sand and use recent innovations such as M-Sand (manufactured sand), robot silica or sand, stone crusher dust, treated and sieved silt removed from reservoirs as well as dams besides sand from other water bodies.

The most preferred alternative to river sand is the M-Sand got through processing the blue metal quarry dust. Fine and uniform granulation of quarry dust by floating it through pressurised water shower leading to reduction of impurities gives us M-Sand.
