Why a cone crusher?
Cone crushers,also known as conical crushers, break the stone between an eccentric rotating head and a bowl.
The rotating head is covered with a wear-resistant coat. The big pieces are broken once between the two jaws,then the reduced pieces gradually go down into the crusher where they continue to be fractured until the pieces are small enough to pass through the narrow openingat the bottom of the breakingspace. A cone crusher can crush a variety of rocks, from medium to hard. The operation of a cone crusher is similar to the one of a giratory crusher,but in a cone crusher, the slope in the breaking space is not as steep.
Although it is known for its ability to grind hard, abrasive rocks, the cone crusher is more suited to secondary crushing. It is designed to crush pre-sized materials,usually 100 mm, 150 mm or 200 mm, and provide small finished products.
- Robust construction
- High productivity
- Easy adjustment
- Low operating costs: This type of crusher is equipped with a spring release system that protects it from overload and allows incrushable materials to pass through the crushing space without damaging the crusher.
- Inexpensive equipment
- The cone crusher cannot accept materials of any size. Materials must be pre-sized for the crusher (usually 200 mm or less).
- The finished product is not homogeneous, which is an essential requirement for many material specifications.
- Not suitable for handling clay or metal mixed with rock.
