What is the difference between jaw crusher and cone crusher? Crusher machine manufacturers JXSC analyzes them. Jaw crusher vs cone crusher, which crushing equipment is better.
Jaw crushers and cone crushers both are a classic laminated crusher. Also is the most mainstream crusher type. Jaw crusher is usually used as a primary crusher and second-class crusher. Cone crusher is usually used as secondary crusher or three-stage crusher machine. Jaw crusher and cone crusher are usually arranged on the stone crusher plant in two stages.
Jaw crusher breaks the rock to 10 ~ 30 cm size. Cone crushing machine further broke the stone to below 10 cm. Large cone crushers (gyratory crushers) also can as head crushers. Fine jaw crusher also can as a two-stage crusher, crushing stone to cm grade particle size range.
There are five differences from jaw crusher vs cone crusher.
Cone rock crusher and Jaw stone crusher are a laminated crushing principle. Which is commonly known as the impact crushing principle The nature of crushing doesn’t change too much, although the actuator of crushing use of different structure. The cone crusher adopts the extrusion process between the grinding wall and the crushing wall. Jaw crusher adopts the extrusion process between the moving jaw plate and the static jaw plate.
Cone crusher and jaw crusher are widely used, but the applicability of the two types of crusher is different. Jaw crusher has the most extensive adaptability and can meet the crushing requirements of almost any kind of materials. Cone crusher is also very wide applicability, but the Metso cone crusher price is high. Low corrosive materials can choose a low-cost impact crusher. Therefore, the applicability of metsos cone crusher has been reduced in economic consideration.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Cone crushing main advantages: High productivity, less power consumption, work more stable, small vibration crushing ratio, product granularity is more uniform, any side can give ore, and can be crowded to ore.
Jaw crusher main advantages: simple structure, low manufacturing cost, convenient maintenance, reliable work, small machine height, easy to configuration, high viscosity for the water ore is not easy to block.
Cone crushing equipment main disadvantages: Complex structure, equipment high costs, height. And need a higher workshop, machine heavy, inconvenient to transport, not suitable for crushing sticky ore, operation and maintenance more complex.
The main disadvantages of jaw crushing: Low productivity, high power consumption, large vibration, small crushing ratio, product granularity is not uniform, and can’t be crowded to ore.
Fine jaw crusher is more used as a secondary crusher machine. It can crush the materials below 200mm to cm level. two jaw crushers can be equipped with the complete crushing production line. The single machine capacity of fine jaw breaking is low, and the breaking capacity of less than 100 tph can only be obtained by means of parallel connection of two machines.
Cone crusher as second-level crushing equipment, single machine crushing capacity of several hundred tons per hour. It occupies the absolute advantage in production capacity. Therefore, the fine jaw crusher can only be used in the secondary crushing station with small capacity. The cone crusher can be used in the secondary crushing station with a large capacity.
The matching of jaw crusher and cone crusher is based on the crushing segmentation. It is necessary to consider whether the particle size of jaw crusher can enter the cone crusher to form secondary crushing. For example, Compound Cone crusher configured in the back process of jaw crusher. The jaw crusher equipment broken too large discharge will plug the cone crusher feed mouth. Resulting crusher plant can not run smoothly.
For the matching of jaw crusher and cone crusher. It is necessary to compare the particle size range of the two materials. And adopt to the best matching range can obtain the most efficient production running state.
