When you want to process sand, gravel, minerals, rock, or other aggregate products, it is important to work with a capable and professional material handling equipment design and engineering company dedicated to selling and installing the best new crushers for your needs.
Before know types of stone crushers, let’s talk about crushing stations first. It is common to use multiple crusher types within a project and set them up as stone crushing stations. In many cases, primary, secondary, and tertiary, and quaternary stations are installed to reduce the rock to the desired size, shape, and consistency. Of course, not all projects require all the stations or stages. Sometimes, primary crushing alone may offer enough reduction for your needs. For instance, if the final size of your product only needs to be below 15mm, a primary jaw or impact crusher can accomplish your goals.
So, how many types of stone crusher exactly are there?
Generally, we find four basic designs: jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher and gyratory crusher, which are operating within many stone crushing plants.
1. Jaw crusher: Jaw crushers are also known as “rock breakers” and are used to break up larger, harder materials into more manageable pieces. It could crush all kinds of stones and less wearing compare with other crushers. They also produce minimal fine materials and dust which always requires in other crushing stages.It is usually used as primary crushing stage.
2. Impact crusher: Impact crusher, as well ashorizontal shaft impactors (HSIs) This type machines crush stones by the impacting forces of certain wear parts known as blow bars and impact plates or toggles.They are suitable to crush sedimentary deposit such as limestone and softer rocks. It is used in secondary crushing stage.
3. Cone crusher: Cone crusher is built with a rotating mantle in a concave bowl lined with manganese. It works by compression to reduce materials by squeezing them until they break apart. Cone crusher can accept medium-hard to very hard and abrasive feeds that might be dry or wet. The output will be a relatively cubical product.
4. Other crushers, such as VSI crusher, hammer crusher, vertical sharft crusher, pcx fine crusher, box crusher ,heavy hammer crusher etc are evolved from these Jaw, Impact, Cone crusher.
