What is a Jaw Crusher?

Jaw crushers are associated with “rock breakers”, which speaks to their brute force. It is a compression-type crusher, consisting of a fixed jaw and moving jaw positioned in a V shape. They are almost exclusively used as primary crushers because they excel at breaking up some of the largest and strongest materials into more manageable pieces for further reduction by different crushing equipment. The movable jaw compresses material against the fixed jaw, crushing the material to the desired size. The material exits the jaw through the bottom of the crusher otherwise, known as the discharge opening. Changing the discharge opening controls the product size made by the crusher.

Jaw crushers have a multitude of advantages, including:

  • Can handle many different types of materials—from hard granite to reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and more—without displaying as much wear and tear as primary impact-style crushers.
  • Typically output minimal fine materials and dust.
  • More efficient than primary gyratory crushers.

There are different kinds of Jaw Crushers for sale. Depending on the application requirements, jaw crushers are available in stationary, wheeled portable, and track-mounted options. Due to their smaller physical size, jaw crushers are ideal for tight spaces, such as underground mining and mobile crushing applications.

How to Improve Productivity

Everyone wants to get the most out of their equipment, and jaw crusher operators are no exception. A few factors affect crusher performance and thus the whole circuit. Here are a few things that can help you avoid production losses.

Avoid bridging- continuous bridging in the feeding area of jaw crushers is a common problem. At Marmak, we have a comprehensive range of jaw crushers for sale.

Having the appropriate jaw die profile saves more than 20% of production capacity that would otherwise be a loss.

Monitor the condition of jaws

Besides being an imperative item for the machine’s performance, the jaw crusher’s jaws are responsible for the front frame and swing jaw protection. Wear generally causes loss in production due to increased crushing angle, loss of tooth profile, reduction of the CSS, neutralizing the possible lamellar effect, and so forth.
