Overview Crusher

Crushers are machines designed to reduce large rocks into smaller rocks, gravel, sand or rock dust.. They are predominantly used for the production of crushed mineral materials from stones.

In contrast, mills are referred to when the target particle size is to be in the fine or ultra-fine range. Usually, this limit is seen at a target grain size in the range of 1 mm to 10 mm. Crushers are most widely used in the industrial processing of mineral raw materials, see quarry, lime works, gravel works, mining, and of secondary materials, see recycling, construction waste. Crushers can be stationary or mobile (on wheels or on crawlers).
