Sand for concrete brick manufacturing

How to choose sand for brick manufacturing

Today we discuss about how to choose sand out of different types for brick, concrete block, cobblestone or pavers manufacturing machine. Why sea or river sand needs to be washed before being used.

SAND:

Sand – is one of the main ingredients for concrete mixture in Brick Manufacturing. But it also has its cons and pros. Lets make some of them clear.

1) BUILDING SAND – The best type of sand for manufacturing concrete bricks. It’s used in all types of construction and is prefered becouse of cohesive properties of it. Building sand responds well to cement in order to form high-end concrete bricks. But you have to remember mixing with crushed stone to create a less smooth surface on the bricks/blocks, which will make plastering grip much better for a longer lasting wall surface. Adding the stone partickes will also increase the brick strength.

2) RIVER SAND – River sand usually contains much river debris such as crushed shell fragments and larger silicon particulates. Which might be washed to get a good mixture of concrete to use in brick machine. Not washing river sand can be a concern when using river sand for brick making.

PLASTER SAND – Plaster sand is very good for fine building work. Usually used with 52,5 cement in tiling & tile grouting as well as normal cement for plastering walls. Using this fine sand is not recommended on its own. It is best to blend this sand with crusher dust or fine grit to average out the cost of the mixture & reduce the brick cost.

SEA SAND

Sea sand is NOT suitable! There are a few number of brick makers that have a system of washing seas sand to rid it of all the salt content, but not only is the time consuming & costly – it yields a type of sand aggregate that consists of near-perfectly round  sand particles. This makes the cement requirement much higher because a stronger lattice is needed to keep the smooth round particles connected. Generally, this will make for a weaker brick that may be strong to the pressure test but won’t do well in the sheer-force test (think: snapping a bread-stick).

convey band for brick machine

Convey band for brick machine

Manufacturing concrete blocks takes a lot of time if you mix with hand. Though process might speed up if some extra modules are used. Some of them are: panmixer, convey band, pallet dispenser.
Usage of panmixer speeds up concrete block or cobblestone production and quality of the mixture, which increases brick’s durability. Pallet dispanser lets use one less worker, who regularly should input pallets to print bricks on.
Usage of Convey Band lets you speed input of concrete mixture up, by pressing one button. Convey band has special relief developed to be flexible and able to keep mixture in the center of it without dripping out.
Convey band not only speeds production up, but also lets you use 2-3 worker less.

cobblestone making machine

Red cobblestone making machine

Adding red color to concrete cobblestone brick is done by adding colored oxide to the mixture of dry concrete. Right after the mixture for a red cobblestone is getting mixed in pan mixer (panmixer). It is enough to add only 3% of the total mixture mass to get a bright color. For slight coloring of red cobblestone, in order to save paint, the ratio may be 1% of red oxide.

 

Manufacturing process:

Before you add water to your concrete mixture, sprinkle your measured color for red cobblestone bricks, mix it with cement. Before adding water do not forget to mix it in pan mixer (PANMIXER). After the aggregates are properly, uniformly mixed add measured water to the mixture. Do not pour it only into the same location. After water is enough your mixture in the pan mixer is ready to be distributed in our cobblestone brick making machine.

Bricks making machine

Block or brick production is profitable type of a small or large business, which depends on construction rates in the city you would serve in. Trend of high building construction rises need of concrete bricks called blocks. For small buildings they need to be as strong as possible, because less of pure concrete walls or colons will be planed. Those walls of concrete bricks make support for the roof itself. In buildings having more than one floor, then hollow blocks are used for wall and isolation purposes.

How to chose a bricks machine?

Demand of your final product should be determined. This might help you choosing the right model of the bricks machine you would own. Try to calculate how many of concrete blocks you might be selling per month and divide by 26. Like if you had to work everyday for brick production except one day in a week. The amount of bricks you would get by this formula shows you daily amount of bricks you will have to make.

Our bricks machine or brick making machines can produce from 800 to 11 000 standard building concrete blocks per day. To save your initial investment, it would be better to try small ones first.

hollow brick molds

Build a house with lego blocks

Over time clay brick manufacturing has been replaced by concrete block manufacturing. This process is made by hollow brick machine having hollow bick molds squizing, and shaking concrete material, after it is mixed in PANMIXERS.

Leaving holes in bricks makes them lighter and cost less. New type clay brick making machines have simplified the brick production process. New type of clay bricks called “Lego Bricks” are simple to use. Becouse of their holes builders get cylindrical acces to the base of the wass, where they fill liquid concrete to sthrengthen corners of a building. The producer of this bricks is called Lego Brick Making Machine.

Building houses out of this bricks reduces your spendings and saves your time. Espetially this building material type is very popular in South Africa, where our colleegues have exported brick making machines with happy customers.

hollow blocks- concrete blocks- bricks- manufacturing

Hollow Block Machine Working Principle

Bricks as all we know are used for construction for a long historical time as Wikipedia says: “Fired bricks are one of the longest-lasting and strongest building materials, sometimes referred to as artificial stone, and have been used since circa 4000 BC. Air-dried bricks, also known as mudbricks, have a history older than fired bricks, and have an additional ingredient of a mechanical binder such as straw.”

Do we still use this technology of clay brick manufacturing? Oh yes, but the process is so long and consumes lots of human work. Those bricks need to dry and get burned, in order to get strong enough for constructions. This bricks are preferred for garden, home or fireplaces. More popular for construction got hollow block, which is made by hollow block machine.

Let’s discuss about advantages of those bricks now:

1) Hollow Brick Machine makes eco – friendly bricks, because they can be manufactured out of whatever waste material including sand (fly ash bricks), that you can find. For making those hollow bricks lighter, some second use materials like sawdust are added with cement.

2) Energy conservation- Hollow bricks can reduce the use of cooling and heating devices as per the seasonal requirements due to their thermal insulation property. This reduces the energy consumption thus saving the resources and your pockets.

3) Thermal and sound insulation- The air present in the hollow area of these bricks make them thermal insulators. They keep the interiors cool in summer and warm in winter especially the ‘clay hollow bricks’. They also provide more sound insulation as compared to solid bricks.

Brick Machine For Sale

A mud brick was one of the ancient strong building materials. Molded by hand and sun drying for days. Clay replaced mud material, for gaining more strength bricks were burned in ovens. The raw materials that were required to make bricks were plentiful, and brick-making quickly became a trade. Bricks are commonly made of a combination of clay and sand.

Nowdays clay bricks change their shape and get a new name – Lego Bricks, which are made by lego bricks machine. Those are being replaced by concrete brick machines. Concrete bricks are way much stronger and production depends only on drying of the block itself. There are lots of brick machines for sale on market. Each manufacturer differs by guarantee period of that machine. Their prices (brick machine price) is depended on manufacturer quality and modules used for the small factory.

Our brick machine for sale is customizable, up-gradable, because of standards used. Its motors are elektrically powered about 10-15 KW in total.

colour-mixer

Why panmixers?

Previously we discussed about alternatives of panmixers: concrete mixers, mixing by hand. But now we will introduce you functionalities and advantages of panmixers.

Pan Mixing:

If we talk about stability and homogenous dry mixtures, you know how hard it is to get concrete mixture of this kind. Here are some adventages of panmixers:

  • All aggregates of different types get uniformly blended and mixed,
  • Even the small amount of water is proportionally propagater across the mixture,
  • The speed of cycle is dominant to be compared with other alternatives.

So if you have a small brick yard with wish of expanding and speeding up the production, first get panmixer to maximise your production efficiency, and concrete block quality.
