Diabase composition is equivalent to gabbro's hypabyssal rock, which is superior building material. It can be used as building stone or craft stone. It is the raw material of casting stone. Even texture, no cracks can be used as stone materials, fine-grained is preferred.

The medium and finely crushed stones are conveyed to the vibrating screen through a belt conveyor to separate stones of different specifications. The stones that meet the requirements of the customer's particle size are conveyed to the finished product pile through the belt conveyor. The impact crusher crushes again, forming a closed circuit cycle.

The coarsely crushed materials are screened by vibrating screen and then conveyed by belt conveyor to cone crusher for medium crushing. The crushed stones are conveyed to the vibrating screen through a belt conveyor to sieve out different specifications of stones. The stones that meet the requirements of the customer's particle size are conveyed to the finished product pile through the belt conveyor. The cone crusher crushes again, forming a closed circuit cycle.

Note: For the sand powder with strict requirements, a sand washing machine can be added behind the fine sand. The waste water discharged from the sand washing machine can be recovered by the fine sand recycling device. On the one hand, it can reduce environmental pollution, and on the other hand, it can increase sand production.

4. SANME can provide technological process plans and technical support according to the actual requirements of customers, and can also design non-standard supporting components according to the actual installation conditions of customers.


Diabase (pronounced /dabes/) is a mafic, holocrystalline, igneous rock equivalent to volcanic basalt or plutonic gabbro. Diabase is also called dolerite in many references outside North America.[1][2] Diabase dikes and sills are typically shallow intrusive bodies and often exhibit fine grained to aphanitic chilled margins which may contain tachylite (dark mafic glass).

Diabase normally has a fine, but visible texture of euhedral lath shaped plagioclase crystals (62%) set in a finer matrix of clinopyroxene, typically augite (20 - 29%), with minor olivine (3% up to 12% in olivine diabase), magnetite (2%) and ilmenite (2%).[3] Accessory and alteration minerals include hornblende, biotite, apatite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, serpentine, chlorite, and calcite. The texture is termed diabasic and is typical of diabases. This diabasic texture is also termed interstitial.[4] The feldspar is high in anorthite (as opposed to albite), the calcium end member of the plagioclase Anorthite-Albite solid solution series, most commonly labradorite.

Diabase is usually found in smaller relatively shallow intrusive bodies such as dikes and sills. Diabase dikes occur in regions of crustal extension and often occur in dike swarms of hundreds of individual dikes or sills radiating from a single volcanic center.

The Palisades Sill which makes up the New Jersey Palisades on the Hudson River, near New York City, is an example of a diabase sill. The dike complexes of the Hebridean Tertiary volcanic province which includes Skye, Rum, Mull, and Arran of western Scotland, the Slieve Gullion region of Ireland, and extends across northern England contains many examples of diabase dike swarms. Parts of the Deccan Traps of India, formed at the end of the Cretaceous also includes dolerite[5]. In Western Australia a 200km long dolerite dyke, the NorsemanWiluna Belt[6] is associated with the non-alluvial gold mining area between Norseman and Kalgoolie, which includes the largest gold mine in Australia[7], the Fimiston Superpit.

The vast areas of mafic volcanism/plutonism associated with the Jurassic breakup of Gondwanaland in the southern hemisphere include many large diabase/dolerite sills and dike swarms. These include the Karoo dolerites of South Africa, the Ferrar Dolerites of Antarctica, and the largest of these, indeed the most extensive of all dolerite formations worldwide, are found in Tasmania. Here, the volume of magma which intruded into a thin veneer of Permian and Jurassic rocks from multiple feeder sites, over a period of perhaps a million years, may have exceeded 40 000 cubic kilometres [8]. In Tasmania alone dolerite dominates the landscape.

In non North American usage dolerite is often preferred and diabase is used to refer to an altered dolerite. Dolerite (Greek: doleros, meaning "deceptive") was the name given by Hay in his 1822 Trait de minralogie. In current geologic usage diabase is preferred.[9]

During seven centuries a diabase formation called Runamo was famous in Scandinavia as a runic inscription, until it became the object of a famous scientific controversy in the first half of the 19th century.
