Why use a cone crusher machine
Before screeners like the McCloskey B200 BIVITEC flip flop screener can be used in the recycling process, waste material must first be broken down to a manageable size. To do this, cone crushers, such as those produced by Terex and Nordberg are required. While there are a few types of crushers on the market, cone crushers are definitely the most agile and efficient, easily mobile and useful for a range of crushing tasks.
How a cone crusher works
Cone crushers operate via a gyrating spiral inside the 'cone', which gives the crusher its name. Rocks, ores and stones enter via a hopper into the top of the cone, and as the spiral rotates inside, the material is crushed against the wall, before dropping down the cone to a lower level, where it is crushed again if necessary, before it can exit through the required sized hole at the bottom of the cone.
Cone crusher machines like the Pegson Crusher or the MaxTrak are more often used in secondary crushing systems, as the size of rock they can handle is typically smaller than the size jaw crushers take. However, the cone crushers are extremely effective at crushing quarried materials and smaller objects like sand and gravel, ensuring that no damage is done to other machinery in your processing plant from large material.
