Rock Crushing Equipment Capacity

Rock crushing Equipment Brief

A rock crusher is a machine designed to reduce the size of large rocks into smaller rocks, gravel, or rock dust. Crushers may be used to reduce the size, or change the form, of waste materials so they can be more easily disposed of or recycled, or to reduce the size of a solid mix of raw materials (as in rock ore), so that pieces of different composition can be differentiated. Crushing is the process of transferring a force amplified by mechanical advantage through a material made of molecules that bond together more strongly, and resist deformation more, than those in the material being crushed.
Rock crushers are extensively applied in the mining sector where rocks containing the ore are crushed before the mineral is extracted. In addition, rock crushers are used in the construction industry to produce gravel and crushed stone for use in concrete, asphalt, and road-building projects. There are several types of rock crushers, including jaw crushers, cone crushers and impact crushers. Each type of crusher is used to crush materials in a different way and is suited to different applications.

Rock Crushing Equipment Capacity

It is difficult to give a precise capacity for a Rock crushing equipment, as the capacity depends on several factors such as the characteristics of the rock being crushed, the feed size and gradation of the material, as well as the overall performance of the crusher. However, as a general guide, a PEW Jaw Crusher with a feed opening of around 1200 mm x 1000 mm (48 in. x 40 in.) would have a capacity in the range of 300-700 tph.

To get a more accurate estimate of the capacity of a rock crushing machine, it is recommended to consult the manufacturer’s technical data and specifications. We will be able to provide you with detailed information about the capacity of their crushers and how it can vary based on different operating conditions.


Jaw Crusher - a Type of Rock Crushing Equipment

A jaw crusher is a type of primary crusher used in mines and ore processing plants. It reduces large rocks into smaller pieces by using compressive force. The rock is placed between a fixed and a moving plate called a jaw. The moving jaw moves back and forth to crush the rock. The rock remains in the jaws until it is small enough to pass through the gap at the bottom of the jaws.

Jaw crushers are typically used as primary crushers because they can take large and variable sized feed material, so the original feed won’t have to be blasted down to a fine size. They are also used in recycling and demolition applications, where they can break down large materials into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Jaw crushers have several advantages, including:

  1. High capacity: Jaw crushers can handle large amounts of material, meaning they are suitable for processing large quantities of material at a time.
  2. Versatility: Jaw crushers can be used in a variety of applications, including construction, demolition, mining, and quarrying.
  3. Low maintenance: Jaw crushers are relatively low maintenance, as they have few moving parts and the crushing plates can be easily replaced when worn.
  4. Simple operation: Jaw crushers are easy to operate and maintain, with simple controls and few moving parts.
  5. High reliability: Jaw crushers are highly reliable, as they have few wearing parts and are built to last.
