Cone crusher has a high efficiency, and is divided into coarse crushing, medium crushing and fine crushing according to application range. Medium crushing equipments usually adopt standard type cone crushers, and fine crushing equipments usually adopt short head cone crushers. But coarse crushing equipment usually adopts jaw crusher or cone crusher.
In order to correctly choose coarse equipment, we compare the difference between cone crusher and jaw crusher.
1. Cone crusher has the advantages of larger crushing chamber depth, high capacity, low power consumption. The production capacity of cone crusher is twice higher than jaw crusher, while the power consumption per ton ore is 0.5-1.2 times lower than jaw crusher.
2. Cone crusher can be packed the feeding opening, and can be directly fed the raw materials into crusher, without additional ore bin and feeder. While jaw crusher can’t be packed the feeding opening, and need to add ore bin and feeder.
3. The body of cone crushers is 2-3 times higher than jaw crushers, so cone crusher has a larger construction cost.
4. Cone crusher is not suitable for crushing moist and sticky ore, and installation and maintenance are not easy. When crushing crushing moist and sticky ore, or production scale is smaller, it had better to select jaw crusher. As for crushing under the pit, it also chooses jaw crusher.
In addition, we should consider the ore nature, product size, factory scale, equipment configuration etc. We are a professional jaw and cone crushers manufacture, if you want to learn more about product information, you can contact us!
