Impact crushers reduce mineral materials such as concrete, asphalt and natural rock in size to produce a valuable commodity product. A fast-spinning rotor throws the material against a solid stationary impact wall. The striking and impacting causes the material to shatter into smaller pieces. The result is a very homogenous and cubical product leaving the crusher box.
The crusher box includes a rotor with hammers (also called blow bars). Depending on the rotor style, you will have either 3 bars or 4 bars. Hammers are cast iron replaceable wear parts that are actually in contact with the material. They are designed to withstand the many impacts of the material. The impact wall (also called apron) has several crushing stages and is armoured by thick wear plates.
Impact crushers is a versatile crusher that can be used to process natural rock and recycle materials alike. Many people claim that you can’t process hard rock with an impact crusher. This is partially true because it depends on the breaking characteristics of the rock and the feed size.
