*Definition:

Cone crushers are a piece of equipment that compresses materials between two pieces of metal. They are used to reduce the size of a variety of raw materials. The resulting product is typically in the form of crushed rocks or particles. These machines are relatively simple to operate, and they are widely used in a variety of industries.

Cone crushers are used in a variety of industries, such as mining, construction, and road laying. Most are primarily used to reduce the size of material. They have a hopper that feeds the material into a large opening at the top of the machine. The material is then broken as it moves down the chamber and through the crushing chamber. The product is then discharged through the bottom shell.

Currently, cone series crushers compress stone/rock mineral materials between the fixed shaft and moving shaft. They are suitable for a variety of applications. However, to obtain the maximum possible output from the crusher, a full understanding of the processing circuitry, application, material, and tonnage requirements must be considered.
