Aerated concrete block production line

Aerated concrete is a new type of wall building materials, with the advantages of light weight, heat preservation, heat insulation, energy saving, waste, environmental protection construction, convenient and quick, etc. It is a national key to promote environmental protection projects.

Aerated concrete production line mainly uses fly ash (slag or sand) as the raw material, lime, cement as the binder material and aluminum powder as the aerating agent, and is made into aerated concrete through the processes of crushing, measuring, mixing, pouring, static curing, cutting, steam curing and so on. Aerated concrete is a new type of wall building materials, with the advantages of light weight, heat preservation, heat insulation, energy saving, waste, environmental protection construction, convenient and quick, etc. It is a national key to promote environmental protection projects.

Process flow:

Raw material preparation → cement → lime → gypsum → additives → sand → raw material measurement and batching → pouring and mixing → for aerated concrete panels with reinforcement (optional) → static curing → turning and demolding → cutting trolley ready for cutting → cutting of the billet → turning to remove the bottom skin → grouping to be vaporized → steam curing → finished product out of the kettle → finished product holding clamps and palletizing → finished product packing → finished product transfer →

I. Raw material processing

Siliceous materials such as sand, fly ash milling, according to the requirements of raw materials and process characteristics, can be used to dry grinding into powder, or water wet grinding slurry, but also with a portion of the lime and other wet grinding. There are two ways of wet grinding: one is dry mixing and grinding to prepare binder; the other is wet grinding with water, mainly to improve the characteristics of fly ash or sand, known as hydrothermal ball milling; now the main choice of hydrothermal wet milling; Purchase of lime is mainly in two forms: one for the powder can be directly into the tank storage standby; the second for the block, you need to be crushed through the milling; gypsum is generally not milled alone, or mixed into the fly ash or sand Gypsum is usually not ground separately, or mixed with fly ash or sand, or can be wheeled with lime in a ball mill. Other auxiliary materials and chemicals are also often prepared;

Raw material preparation process, is the preparation process of ingredients, is to make raw materials in line with the process requirements of reprocessing and complete the storage of ingredients before the homogenization process, is a direct impact on the entire production can be carried out smoothly, product quality can meet the requirements of the basic process links.

    (1)Jaw crusher
