Comparison of 4 crushing processes of limestone

At present, 4 crushing processes and equipment are generally adopted for limestone aggregate crushing. The advantages and disadvantages of these four processes are analyzed as follows:

Jaw crusher+ impact crusher

This process is widely used. The process is mature and reasonable, with high operation rate and moderate equipment investment.

The advantages are that the product variety proportion is easy to adjust, the product grain size is good, and the powder is less.

The disadvantage is that the energy consumption of per unit product is high.

Impact crusher+ impact crusher

In China, it is a process developed after the primary crushing impact crusher is mature, characterized by short process, high operation rate and moderate equipment investment. The content of stone powder is low, and the grain size of finished aggregate is excellent.

Hammer crusher+ hammer crusher

The process is simple and the equipment investment is low. However, the operation rate is low and there are many powdery materials. With the wear of the hammer head, the output capacity will be greatly reduced. When the hammer head is half worn, the output may even be reduced by 50%.

Jaw crusher+ cone crusher

In this process, hydraulic cone crusher is mainly used, which adopts laminated crushing principle. The content of needle and flake particles is low, and the proportion of powder in the product is low.

Moreover, the operation cost is low, and the mantle and concave only need to be replaced once a year under normal conditions.

The disadvantage is that the initial investment of the project is relatively high.

When selecting crusher for limestone aggregate production line, market factors, product quality and comprehensive operation cost of the production line must be taken into consideration and suitable customized scheme shall be selected according to local conditions.
