As we all know, cone crusher plays a key role in crushing stone material with certain hardness like metal ore, marble and limestone. It is usually used in mine ore processing for two-stage or three-stage crushing, and used for crushing medium hard stone (like river pebble, granite, basalt, limestone, quartzite and diabase) because it's strong crushing capacity. As an important machine to process hard materials, what types of cone crushers do you know? Which cone crusher is better to use? Today we'll analysis it in detail.
There are 3 major cone crushers in the market: Spring cone crusher, single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher and multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher. Spring cone crusher belongs to traditional one, which been launched in early years. While hydraulic cone crusher has the features with bigger capacity and more advanced than spring cone crusher. Therefore, it’s widely used in aggregates industry.
Spring Cone Crusher
The spring cone crusher adopts spring safety system as overload protection device. It can make foreign matter through the crushing chamber without harming the machine, able to ensure crusher more stable. It mainly used in some crushing production processes that do not have too high requirements for particle shape.
Hydraulic Cone Crusher
Compare to spring cone crusher, hydraulic cone crusher is simpler in structure and more efficient. It’s not only easy to maintain with hydraulic adjustment and overload protection performance, but easy to control. All of these features make it suitable for plant which has high standard and high automatic.
Hydraulic cone crusher can be divided into single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher and multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher. When crushing soft stone materials like limestone, it is suitable for users to use single cylinder hydraulic cone crusher. But when crushing hard stone materials like pebble, it’s better to use multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher.
Generally, the higher the rock hardness is, the greater the difference between single-cylinder and multi-cylinder operations.
But single-cylinder cone crusher is simpler than multi-cylinder in structure. Because of its simple structure, it just takes lower costs to make, so the price of single-cylinder is lower than multi-cylinder.
As a high performance crushing equipment, cone crusher has been developed for long time. As the characteristic of big crushing efficiency, low energy consumption and high quality in finished products, cone crusher is widely used in mining and quarry. Now, it has gradually become an indispensable part in the modern crushing field. So it’s important for user to know cone crusher deeply.
