According to the processing process can be divided into crushing machinery (cone crusher, jaw crusher, box crusher, Impact crusher, etc.), grinding machinery, screening machinery, sorting (selection) machinery and dehydration machinery, and a variety of production lines. The separation machinery according to the principle of action divided into gravity concentrator machinery, magnetic separator, flotation machine and special processing machinery. Mineral processing machinery is also used in building materials, chemicals, glass, ceramics and other industrial sectors. Beneficiation is the process of selecting useful minerals according to the differences of mineral physical properties, physicochemical properties and chemical properties in the collected mineral materials. The machinery that implements this process is called the mineral processing machinery, and the beneficiation machinery is divided into crushing, grinding, sieving, sorting (selecting) and dewatering machinery.
Crushing machinery commonly used has jaw crusher, cone crusher, roll crusher and counterattack crusher, etc. the most widely used grinding machine is cylindrical mill, including Rod Mill, Ball mill, gravel mill and grinding machine, etc. commonly used in sieving machines are inertial vibrating screen and resonant sieve; hydraulic classifier and mechanical classifier are widely used classification machines in wet grading operation.
