5 Common Types Of Cone Crusher

A cone crusher is a stone crushing machinery suitable for raw materials in the metallurgical, road construction, chemical, and silicate industries. According to different crushing principles and product particle sizes, it has various models and the advantages of reliable structure, high productivity, better-finished product granularity and shape, easy adjustment, and low operating costs. The spring release system of the cone crusher has an overload protection function, allowing the flow passage to pass through the crushing chamber without damaging the crusher.

Applicable materials

A cone crusher is suitable for crushing hard materials, such as calcite, limestone, granite, river pebbles, dolomite, bluestone, glass, basalt, iron ore, etc. It has wide application in large stone factories with low discharge requirements and high output.


5 Common Types Of Cone Crusher

The cone crusher plays a significant role in the mining industry, with advantages such as high crushing force, high work efficiency, simple structure, easy maintenance, and easy operation and adjustment. How many types of cone crushers are there?

  1. Spring cone crusher

The feeding particle size of the spring cone crusher is ≤ 300mm and the production capacity is 12-700t/h. The spring cone crusher achieves the purpose of crushing by rotating and swinging the eccentric sleeve. In this working state, it has strong stability performance, fewer vulnerable parts inside the machine, and the advantage of long service life, which reduces unnecessary maintenance costs. The spring cone crusher is suitable for crushing various ores and rocks with medium to high hardness.

  1. Compound cone crusher

The feed particle size of the compound cone crusher is ≤ 314mm and the output is 27-1814t. The compound cone crusher is Simmons, which includes the standard and short head type. Generally speaking, the standard Symons cone crusher is suitable for coarse and medium crushing, while the short head type is suitable for medium and fine crushing. The compound cone crusher is not suitable for ultra-fine crushing or sand making. It is widely used in the production line for product particle size requirements are not high.


  1. Fully hydraulic cone crusher

The hydraulic safety system of the fully hydraulic cone crusher is relatively good. In the event of iron failure or blockage, adjust the top of the fixed cone to eliminate faulty objects. The structure is particularly energy-efficient. This machine has a high degree of automation, easy to operate, and has a low failure rate. Therefore, the fully hydraulic cone crusher is suitable for crushing materials containing other objects, and the iron passing function is relatively reliable.

  1. Multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher

The feed particle size of the multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher is ≤ 326mm and the output is 72-1100t/h. The multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher uses a hydraulic motor to adjust the fixed cone. Because the radius R of the sphere is relatively small, the rotation radius of the cylinder cone is also relatively small. It will cause instability like overturning, poor contact between the main shaft and the bushing and flying, thereby affecting the operation of the machine. However, its crushing capacity is relatively high. Multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crushing is suitable for crushing materials with high hardness and has a large processing capacity.

  1. Single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher

The feeding particle size of the single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher is ≤ 560mm and the output is 36-2181t/h. The single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher has a simple structure, good discharge particle shape, multiple chamber shapes combined with stroke, and meets the requirements for several particle sizes. The structure is simple and easy to maintain. The single-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher is suitable for ultra-fine, fine-crushing, and medium-crushing operations with high requirements for discharge particle size.


How to choose a cone crusher?

How to choose a crusher model needs to start from the following points.

  1. According to the nature of the raw material

The physical properties of the raw material will affect the crusher’s production capacity if the material has high humidity and viscosity. When crushing, the material is more likely to stick to the crushing chamber or discharge port, affecting the production efficiency of the equipment and thus reducing the output. Therefore, when choosing a crusher, it is necessary to understand the properties of the crushed material to avoid selecting unsuitable materials that may affect the overall operation of the machine.

  1. Based on actual needs

When users choose cone crushers, they must consider their daily production needs. The production capacity of different models of cone crushers varies. So we should choose appropriate equipment according to production standards to avoid wasting resources and increasing production costs for high production.

  1. According to the financial condition

Cone crushers are mechanical products that are usually expensive. Therefore, when users choose stone crushers, we should consider the financial condition with high cost-effectiveness. It ensures capital turnover and also purchases satisfactory stone crushers.

The prices of different models of cone crushers vary. When choosing a stone crusher, we should consider funds conditions and production requirements to make a budget. Choose a stone crusher model with a higher input-output ratio within the budget.
