The impact crusher and the cone crusher are both secondary crushing equipment for the sand and gravel production line. The fit is better. Let's take a look at the specific differences between the two:
1. The principle of crushing is different
The impact crusher uses the impact energy to break the material. The material is repeatedly impacted and broken between the plate hammer and the impact plate. The cone crusher adopts the principle of lamination and crushing. material to crush it. Therefore, in the later operation process, if it is a high-hardness material, the wear of the impact crusher will be greater.
2. Different scope of application
The crushing principles of the two feel that the hardness of the materials they are suitable for is different. Generally speaking, a cone crusher is suitable for crushing high hardness rocks and metal ores such as granite, basalt, river pebbles, iron ore, gold ore, etc., while an impact crusher is suitable for crushing medium and low hardness stones such as limestone and calcite.
3. Different processing capacity
Compared with the impact crusher, the cone crusher has a larger processing capacity and higher crushing efficiency and is more suitable for large-scale and high-output production line operations.
4. Different input costs
The initial investment in a cone crusher is relatively large, but the maintenance cost of a counterattack crusher is relatively high. If it is broken hard rock, in the long run, a cone crusher is more cost-effective than a counterattack crusher.
