Crushing equipment has the seemingly simple job of breaking up massive boulders and rocks into smaller aggregate. Something so straightforward is quite complex in practicality. Huge machines weighing thousands of kilograms, crush some of the hardest materials ever to exist, pumping out tonne after tonne of valuable stone.
The two most popular pieces of aggregate equipment in the market include cone crushers and jaw crushers. While cone crushers and jaw crushers both perform a similar job of breaking rocks, their approach and applications are quite different.
Introducing The Jaw Crusher
These burly machines act as a primary crusher for mining and processing ore. Two powerful jaws (one fixed, one moveable) are mounted in a “V” alignment. The moveable jaw reciprocates, crushing the large rocks until they are small enough to fit through the opening at the bottom of the “V.”
Jaw Crusher Benefits
Every site has different needs and requirements, so jaw crushers can be found in different sizes and capacities. This gives you the opportunity to make the most optimal choice for your project.
Parts are easy to find, and maintenance is straightforward. CHAENG carries a full stock of jaw crusher parts to keep your machines up and running. Performing simple maintenance will ensure that your jaw crushers provide long-term value.
Introducing the Cone Crusher
Cone crushers take care of secondary and tertiary crushing applications. Fine and medium-sized aggregates (used in asphalt and concrete, for example) are created by an eccentrically rotating shaft that grinds the rocks between a robust metal cone and a fixed wall.
Cone Crusher Benefits
Large feed openings can be paired with small discharge sizes, giving cone crushers a high crushing ratio. This makes the machines incredibly efficient, reducing the need for further crushing applications. Adding in the low operational costs to run the machine and you get a powerful tool with a small footprint.
Wear-resistant, durable parts give the machine a long life-span. Parts are readily available as well, limiting any equipment downtime.
