The Metrotrak HA Jaw Crusher by Powerscreen
The Powerscreen crusher range from Terex including; mobile jaw crushers, cone crushers and impact crushers, are considered the world over as being the leading equipment in the industry. Crushing plants often utilise a combination of crushing machines alongside mobile screening units to create an efficient and cost effective aggregate processing system.
Jaw crushers are one of the main types of primary crushers used in mine and ore processing plants. Jaw crushers are typically designed with a rectangular or square opening. The jaw crushers main function is to reduce large sized rocks or ore into smaller pieces, or change the form of waste materials so they can be more readily recycled or disposed of. Reducing the size of a solid mix of raw materials can also help compositions be differentiated; this is important in the extraction of ore.
A fixed jaw, mounted in a ‘V’ alignment is the stationary breaking surface. The movable jaw exerts force on the rock against a stationary plate and applies sufficient force to bring the surfaces together, generating enough force to separate the molecules (fracturing) in the material being crushed.
Let’s take a look at one of the Powerscreen jaw crusher options available at Blue Group:
