The benefits of stone recycling
Recycling of stone is very important to prevent waste of this natural and valuable material and to make optimum use of waste from the stone produced by various factories. This is done in modern workshops and in an environment separate from manufacturing plants, which has also received a lot of attention in terms of the employment plan. In this regard, human resources, specialists and experts in this field are active and it is possible for women to work in such workshops.
The stone can be considered as a national capital and the reuse of recycled stones can be a way to reduce costs and return the capital.
The stone recycling scheme has a very good economic justification because the outcrops of the rocks and tailings in the quarries are minimized and waste is significantly reduced and their use will increase profits and create a viable business.
How recycled stones are formed
Scrap stone can occur in factories for a variety of reasons.
The stone peaks that enter the plant produce scrap when it is slit. The rocks produced from these peaks will also have less resistance. Inaccurate handling may cause cracks, scratches and fractures at the edges and surface of the stone, or may cause scratches during subsoil. Also, the rock can be more fractured if the layers of rock are not parallel to the folds. Explosive mines are another cause of waste. In these mines, blasting on the rocks creates seams that can cause plaque breakage and scrap.
Stone recycling methods
Stone can be recycled in a variety of ways, and scrap stones can be used to produce different items. Here are a few things that come from recycling stone:
Antique stone can be produced by putting together broken and broken pieces of other stones. This type of rock can be produced from tailings and broken travertine rocks. These parts are bonded to the mortar by resin-based mortars and produce a set of high quality and beauty called decorative or antique stones. These pieces come in many shapes, and this irregularity gives the product a special beauty.
The most important reasons for using travertine to produce antique stone include:
Excellent strength and plasticity
Appearance and color variety
Porosity for adhering parts and penetrating mortar between them
Leather upholstery of stone to produce antique stone
This method uses special plastic brushes on the surface of the stone to make the surface of the stone leather. This method can be used to leather marble, marble, travertine stone and all kinds of Chinese stone.
The Benefits of Antique Stones
The most important advantages of using antique stones that come from recycling other stones can be:
Reasonable price for these stones
High installation speed
Minor outliers compared to normal natural stones
Ability to install on round surfaces
Ability to install after finishing construction work
Variety in color, design and model and size and type of stone
Stony or rugged rocks
The rocks that face each other along the river have an almost smooth surface and can be used as a rock and floor stone. These stones are mounted on brick or concrete surfaces with cement-sand mortar, thus making the rocks look special and have a profound effect on the ultimate beauty of the facade. Suitable molds should be used for mounting this type of stone in the facade until the mortar is fully sealed. Rocks can also be used as flat stones on a special grid in standard dimensions.
Cubic or cubic stone
These stones are cut by guillotine and usually have rough surfaces. The reuse and recycling of rocks, so-called stone mounds, has a variety of uses such as:
These types of stones are used for civil activities by the municipality and other organs as the largest consumer of waste and recycled stone.
The most important are stone recycling
From waste for recycling stone as:
Types of cement
Can also be used.
Depending on the type of stone, a variety of stone recycling products can be obtained.
Harder stones are usually used for facade and floor stone, and softer stones are usually powdered, antique, and more. Other uses of recycled stone waste include the carcass for the entrance floor of buildings, sidewalks, parking lots, etc. Stone blocks that can not be cut and used as masonry because of their small size can also be used with special cutting and turning machines to build:
To be used.
The economic justification for this plan is that the thresholds of crushed stone are minimized and ultimately not present as waste in the factories, and in addition to profit and profitability, it results in the employment of well-educated job seekers appropriate to the job.
Stone recycling in Iran
Most of the stone waste is related to granite. Factories usually produce large quantities of ore, but with increased prices for recycled stone, it has become more economically viable.
