Crushing is a difficult and demanding job. Machine operators work in dust, noise and sometimes very restrictive weather conditions. They have to climb, adjust, measure, sort, readjust… Nothing to do with digging a hole or laying a pipe: the crusher operators are real fighters, who want it to work.
Often, a crushing operation requires multiple machines operating simultaneously, more than half a dozen in some cases. When one of them fails, several employees have to stop and thousands of dollars per hour for unused equipment are lost. It may even be a construction site elsewhere, which is stopped for lack of crushed stone. The crushers must constantly produce: the right equipment and the right tonnage per hour.
The variety of our product range, the strength of our machines and the quality of our after-sales service allow you to achieve high levels of productivity and minimize the moments of interruption of your operations.
To do this, you must first determine the type of crushers that are appropriate for your needs. There are several features to consider, including:
- Abrasiveness and hardness: It is essential to know which material will be crushed, especially its abrasiveness and hardness. You need to assess the compression resistance or maximum strength that the material can withstand before it fractures itself.
- Dimensions: You will need to consider the maximum dimensions you plan to deal with with the crusher (length, width and thickness).
- Granulometric requirement: It is necessary to define the desired result, that is, the size of the grain after grinding.
- Capacity (flow): You will need to determine the processing capacity (or throughput) required for the proposed use. The flow is measured in tons per hour.
