Quarrying refers to secondary mining, open pit and above ground removal of materials used for secondary applications such as building construction, road construction, cement, glass, farming, etc.. A number of aggregate materials are also used in foodstuff for human and animal consumption.
A number of aggregate materials are difficult to deal with due to their moisture content which requires it to be dried before it can be processed. Drying requires heating which is a major production cost that can be reduced or eliminated by DevourX due to its ability to dry as it processes without heating.
DevourX is also ideal for the extraction of substances such as platinum, titanium (rutile), silica, zircon and other elements from mineral sands and fine sands. Unlike conventional equipment, it has the ability to break the bonds that keep elements together which simplifies the process of separation and extraction.
