Limestone is calcareous sedimentary rocks formed at the bottom of lakes and seas with the accumulation of shells, bones and other calcium rich goods. It is composed of calcite (CaCO3). The organic matter upon which it settles in lakes or seas, are preserved as fossils. Over thousands and millions of years, layer after layer is built up adding weight. The heat and pressure causes chemical reaction at the bottom and the sediments turn into solid stone, the limestone.
The rock which contains more than 95% of calcium carbonate is known as high-calcium limestone. Recrystallised limestone takes good polish and is usually used as decorative and building stone.

Large limestone raw material should be crushed first if it is bigger than the input size of your grinding mill. We recommended Impact Crusher. The crushed limestone will be sent by a belt conveyer then to vibrating screen and becoming final products or to grinding mill to fine grind. If the raw limestone is small enough and can be directly grinded by grinding mill, The proposed limestone grinding mill is MTW series mill or high pressure mill (Raymond mill), if you need higher fineness, you can choose Super-micro mill.

1. First step should be primary crushing or shaping of the raw limestone material.
2. Secondary step can be shaping if it is necessary when the product includes any features or custom size or shape.
3. Once the product is completed, it can be packaged and stored for shipment or direct sale.
4. Limestone of insufficient quality or size for current demand is stocked on-site for future use, crushed for use in paving and construction applications, or stored for site reclamation activities.
