impact crusher - an overview | sciencedirect topics
The impact crusher (typically PE series) is widely used and of high production efficiency and good safety performance. The finished product is of cube shape and the tension force and crack is avoided. Compared with hammer crusher, the impact crusher is able to fully utilize the high-speed impact energy of entire rotor. However, due to the crushing board that is easy to wear, it is also limited in the hard material crushing. The impact crusher is commonly used for the crushing of limestone, coal, calcium carbide, quartz, dolomite, iron pyrites, gypsum, and chemical raw materials of medium hardness. Effect of process conditions on the production capacity of crushed materials is listed in Table8.10.
Depending on the size of the debris, it may either be ready to enter the recycling process or need to be broken down to obtain a product with workable particle sizes, in which case hydraulic breakers mounted on tracked or wheeled excavators are used. In either case, manual sorting of large pieces of steel, wood, plastics and paper may be required, to minimise the degree of contamination of the final product.
The three types of crushers most commonly used for crushing CDW materials are the jaw crusher, the impact crusher and the gyratory crusher (Figure 4.4). A jaw crusher consists of two plates, with one oscillating back and forth against the other at a fixed angle (Figure 4.4(a)) and it is the most widely used in primary crushing stages (Behera etal., 2014). The jaw crusher can withstand large and hard-to-break pieces of reinforced concrete, which would probably cause the other crushing machines to break down. Therefore, the material is initially reduced in jaw crushers before going through any other crushing operation. The particle size reduction depends on the maximum and minimum size of the gap at the plates (Hansen, 2004).
An impact crusher breaks the CDW materials by striking them with a high-speed rotating impact, which imparts a shearing force on the debris (Figure 4.4(b)). Upon reaching the rotor, the debris is caught by steel teeth or hard blades attached to the rotor. These hurl the materials against the breaker plate, smashing them into smaller particle sizes. Impact crushers provide better grain-size distribution of RA for road construction purposes, and they are less sensitive to material that cannot be crushed, such as steel reinforcement.
Generally, jaw and impact crushers exhibit a large reduction factor, defined as the ratio of the particle size of the input to that of the output material. A jaw crusher crushes only a small proportion of the original aggregate particles but an impact crusher crushes mortar and aggregate particles alike and thus generates a higher amount of fine material (OMahony, 1990).
Gyratory crushers work on the same principle as cone crushers (Figure 4.4(c)). These have a gyratory motion driven by an eccentric wheel. These machines will not accept materials with a large particle size and therefore only jaw or impact crushers should be considered as primary crushers. Gyratory and cone crushers are likely to become jammed by fragments that are too large or too heavy. It is recommended that wood and steel be removed as much as possible before dumping CDW into these crushers. Gyratory and cone crushers have advantages such as relatively low energy consumption, a reasonable amount of control over the particle size of the material and production of low amounts of fine particles (Hansen, 2004).
For better control of the aggregate particle size distribution, it is recommended that the CDW should be processed in at least two crushing stages. First, the demolition methodologies used on-site should be able to reduce individual pieces of debris to a size that the primary crusher in the recycling plant can take. This size depends on the opening feed of the primary crusher, which is normally bigger for large stationary plants than for mobile plants. Therefore, the recycling of CDW materials requires careful planning and communication between all parties involved.
A large proportion of the product from the primary crusher can result in small granules with a particle size distribution that may not satisfy the requirements laid down by the customer after having gone through the other crushing stages. Therefore, it should be possible to adjust the opening feed size of the primary crusher, implying that the secondary crusher should have a relatively large capacity. This will allow maximisation of coarse RA production (e.g., the feed size of the primary crusher should be set to reduce material to the largest size that will fit the secondary crusher).
The choice of using multiple crushing stages mainly depends on the desired quality of the final product and the ratio of the amounts of coarse and fine fractions (Yanagi etal., 1998; Nagataki and Iida, 2001; Nagataki etal., 2004; Dosho etal., 1998; Gokce etal., 2011). When recycling concrete, a greater number of crushing processes produces a more spherical material with lower adhered mortar content (Pedro etal., 2015), thus providing a superior quality of material to work with (Lotfi etal., 2017). However, the use of several crushing stages has some negative consequences as well; in addition to costing more, the final product may contain a greater proportion of finer fractions, which may not always be a suitable material.
Reduction of the broken rock material, or oversized gravel material, to an aggregate-sized product is achieved by various types of mechanical crusher. These operations may involve primary, secondary and even sometimes tertiary phases of crushing. There are many different types of crusher, such as jaw, gyratory, cone (or disc) and impact crushers (Fig. 15.9), each of which has various advantages and disadvantages according to the properties of the material being crushed and the required shape of the aggregate particles produced.

It is common, but not invariable, for jaw or gyratory crushers to be utilised for primary crushing of large raw feed, and for cone crushers or impact breakers to be used for secondary reduction to the final aggregate sizes. The impact crushing machines can be particularly useful for producing acceptable particle shapes (Section 15.5.3) from difficult materials, which might otherwise produce unduly flaky or elongated particles, but they may be vulnerable to abrasive wear and have traditionally been used mostly for crushing limestone.

The main sources of RA are either from construction and ready mixed concrete sites, demolition sites or from roads. The demolition sites produce a heterogeneous material, whereas ready mixed concrete or prefabricated concrete plants produce a more homogeneous material. RAs are mainly produced in fixed crushing plant around big cities where CDWs are available. However, for roads and to reduce transportation cost, mobile crushing installations are used.
The materiel for RA manufacturing does not differ from that of producing NA in quarries. However, it should be more robust to resist wear, and it handles large blocks of up to 1m. The main difference is that RAs need the elimination of contaminants such as wood, joint sealants, plastics, and steel which should be removed with blast of air for light materials and electro-magnets for steel. The materials are first separated from other undesired materials then treated by washing and air to take out contamination. The quality and grading of aggregates depend on the choice of the crusher type.
Jaw crusher: The material is crushed between a fixed jaw and a mobile jaw. The feed is subjected to repeated pressure as it passes downwards and is progressively reduced in size until it is small enough to pass out of the crushing chamber. This crusher produces less fines but the aggregates have a more elongated form.
Hammer (impact) crusher: The feed is fragmented by kinetic energy introduced by a rotating mass (the rotor) which projects the material against a fixed surface causing it to shatter causing further particle size reduction. This crusher produces more rounded shape.
The type of crusher and number of processing stages have considerable influence on the shape and size of RA. In general, for the same size, RAs tend to be coarser, more porous and rougher than NAs, due to the adhered mortar content (Dhir etal., 1999). After the primary crushing, which is normally performed using jaw crushers (Fong etal., 2004), it is preferable to adopt a secondary crushing stage (with cone crushers or impact crushers) (CCANZ, 2011) to further reduce the size of the CDW, producing more regularly shaped particles (Barbudo etal., 2012; Ferreira etal., 2011; Fonseca etal., 2011; Pedro etal., 2014, 2015; Gonzlez-Fonteboa and Martnez-Abella, 2008; Maultzsch and Mellmann, 1998; Dhir and Paine, 2007; Chidiroglou etal., 2008).
CDW that is subjected to a jaw crushing stage tends to result only in flatter RA (Ferreira etal., 2011; Fonseca etal., 2011; Hendriks, 1998; Tsoumani etal., 2015). It is possible to produce good-quality coarse RA within the specified size range by adjusting the crusher aperture (Hansen, 1992). In addition, the number of processing stages needs to be well thought out to ensure that the yield of coarse RA is not affected and that the quantity of fine RA is kept to the minimum (Angulo etal., 2004). This is because the finer fraction typically exhibits lower quality, as it accumulates a higher amount of pulverised old mortar (Etxeberria etal., 2007b; Meller and Winkler, 1998). Fine RA resulting from impact crushers tends to exhibit greater angularity and higher fineness modulus compared with standard natural sands (Lamond etal., 2002; Hansen, 1992; Buyle-Bodin and Hadjieva-Zaharieva, 2002).
One of the commonly known issues related to the use of RCA is its ability to generate a considerable amount of fines when the material is used (Thomas etal., 2016). As the RCA particles are moved around, they impact against one another, leading to the breakage of the friable adhered mortar, which may give rise to some technical problems such as an increase in the water demand of concrete mixes when used as an NA replacement (Thomas etal., 2013a,b; Poon etal., 2007).
The coarse fraction of RMA tends to show a higher shape index owing to the shape of the original construction material (e.g., perforated ceramic bricks) (De Brito etal., 2005). This can pose a problem in future applications as RMA may not compact as efficiently as RCA or NA (Khalaf and DeVenny, 2005). Its shape index may be reduced if the material is successively broken down to a lower particle size (De Brito etal., 2005).
Impact crushers (e.g., hammer mills and impact mills) employ sharp blows applied at high speed to free-falling rocks where comminution is by impact rather than compression. The moving parts are beaters, which transfer some of their kinetic energy to the ore particles upon contact. Internal stresses created in the particles are often large enough to cause them to shatter. These forces are increased by causing the particles to impact upon an anvil or breaker plate.
There is an important difference between the states of materials crushed by pressure and by impact. There are internal stresses in material broken by pressure that can later cause cracking. Impact causes immediate fracture with no residual stresses. This stress-free condition is particularly valuable in stone used for brick-making, building, and roadmaking, in which binding agents (e.g., tar) are subsequently added. Impact crushers, therefore, have a wider use in the quarrying industry than in the metal-mining industry. They may give trouble-free crushing on ores that tend to be plastic and pack when the crushing forces are applied slowly, as is the case in jaw and gyratory crushers. These types of ore tend to be brittle when the crushing force is applied instantaneously by impact crushers (Lewis et al., 1976).
Impact crushers are also favored in the quarry industry because of the improved product shape. Cone crushers tend to produce more elongated particles because of their ability to pass through the chamber unbroken. In an impact crusher, all particles are subjected to impact and the elongated particles, having a lower strength due to their thinner cross section, would be broken (Ramos et al., 1994; Kojovic and Bearman, 1997).
Figure 6.23(a) shows the cross section of a typical hammer mill. The hammers (Figure 6.23(b)) are made from manganese steel or nodular cast iron containing chromium carbide, which is extremely abrasion resistant. The breaker plates are made of the same material.
The hammers are pivoted so as to move out of the path of oversize material (or tramp metal) entering the crushing chamber. Pivoted (swing) hammers exert less force than they would if rigidly attached, so they tend to be used on smaller impact crushers or for crushing soft material. The exit from the mill is perforated, so that material that is not broken to the required size is retained and swept up again by the rotor for further impacting. There may also be an exit chute for oversize material which is swept past the screen bars. Certain design configurations include a central discharge chute (an opening in the screen) and others exclude the screen, depending on the application.
The hammer mill is designed to give the particles velocities of the order of that of the hammers. Fracture is either due to impact with the hammers or to the subsequent impact with the casing or grid. Since the particles are given high velocities, much of the size reduction is by attrition (i.e., particle on particle breakage), and this leads to little control on product size and a much higher proportion of fines than with compressive crushers.
The hammers can weigh over 100kg and can work on feed up to 20cm. The speed of the rotor varies between 500 and 3,000rpm. Due to the high rate of wear on these machines (wear can be taken up by moving the hammers on the pins) they are limited in use to relatively non-abrasive materials. They have extensive use in limestone quarrying and in the crushing of coal. A great advantage in quarrying is the fact that they produce a relatively cubic product.
A model of the swing hammer mill has been developed for coal applications (Shi et al., 2003). The model is able to predict the product size distribution and power draw for given hammer mill configurations (breaker gap, under-screen orientation, screen aperture) and operating conditions (feed rate, feed size distribution, and breakage characteristics).
For coarser crushing, the fixed hammer impact mill is often used (Figure 6.24). In these machines the material falls tangentially onto a rotor, running at 250500rpm, receiving a glancing impulse, which sends it spinning toward the impact plates. The velocity imparted is deliberately restricted to a fraction of the velocity of the rotor to avoid high stress and probable failure of the rotor bearings.
The fractured pieces that can pass between the clearances of the rotor and breaker plate enter a second chamber created by another breaker plate, where the clearance is smaller, and then into a third smaller chamber. The grinding path is designed to reduce flakiness and to produce cubic particles. The impact plates are reversible to even out wear, and can easily be removed and replaced.
The impact mill gives better control of product size than does the hammer mill, since there is less attrition. The product shape is more easily controlled and energy is saved by the removal of particles once they have reached the size required.
Large impact crushers will reduce 1.5m top size ROM ore to 20cm, at capacities of around 1500th1, although units with capacities of 3000th1 have been manufactured. Since they depend on high velocities for crushing, wear is greater than for jaw or gyratory crushers. Hence impact crushers are not recommended for use on ores containing over 15% silica (Lewis et al., 1976). However, they are a good choice for primary crushing when high reduction ratios are required (the ratio can be as high as 40:1) and the ore is relatively non-abrasive.
Developed in New Zealand in the late 1960s, over the years it has been marketed by several companies (Tidco, Svedala, Allis Engineering, and now Metso) under various names (e.g., duopactor). The crusher is finding application in the concrete industry (Rodriguez, 1990). The mill combines impact crushing, high-intensity grinding, and multi-particle pulverizing, and as such, is best suited in the tertiary crushing or primary grinding stage, producing products in the 0.0612mm size range. It can handle feeds of up to 650th1 at a top size of over 50mm. Figure 6.22 shows a Barmac in a circuit; Figure 6.25 is a cross-section and illustration of the crushing action.
The basic comminution principle employed involves acceleration of particles within a special ore-lined rotor revolving at high speed. A portion of the feed enters the rotor, while the remainder cascades to the crushing chamber. Breakage commences when rock enters the rotor, and is thrown centrifugally, achieving exit velocities up to 90ms1. The rotor continuously discharges into a highly turbulent particle cloud contained within the crushing chamber, where reduction occurs primarily by rock-on-rock impact, attrition, and abrasion.
This crusher developed by Jaques (now Terex Mineral Processing Solutions) has several internal chamber configurations available depending on the abrasiveness of the ore. Examples include the Rock on Rock, Rock on Anvil and Shoe and Anvil configurations (Figure 6.26). These units typically operate with 5 to 6 steel impellers or hammers, with a ring of thin anvils. Rock is hit or accelerated to impact on the anvils, after which the broken fragments freefall into the discharge chute and onto a product conveyor belt. This impact size reduction process was modeled by Kojovic (1996) and Djordjevic et al. (2003) using rotor dimensions and speed, and rock breakage characteristics measured in the laboratory. The model was also extended to the Barmac crushers (Napier-Munn et al., 1996).
Figure 9.1 shows common aluminum oxide-based grains. Also called corundum, alumina ore was mined as early as 2000 BC in the Greek island of Naxos. Its structure is based on -Al2O3 and various admixtures. Traces of chromium give alumina a red hue, iron makes it black, and titanium makes it blue. Its triagonal system reduces susceptibility to cleavage. Precious grades of Al2O3 are used as gemstones, and include sapphire, ruby, topaz, amethyst, and emerald.
Charles Jacobs (1900), a principal developer, fused bauxite at 2200C (4000F) before the turn of the 20th century. The resulting dense mass was crushed into abrasive particles. Presently, alumina is obtained by smelting aluminum alloys containing Al2O3 in electric furnaces at around 1260C (2300F), a temperature at which impurities separate from the solution and aluminum oxide crystallizes out. Depending upon the particular process and chemical composition there are a variety of forms of aluminum oxide. The poor thermal conductivity of alumina (33.5W/mK) is a significant factor that affects grinding performance. Alumina is available in a large range of grades because it allows substitution of other oxides in solid solution, and defect content can be readily controlled.
For grinding, lapping, and polishing bearing balls, roller races, and optical glasses, the main abrasive employed is alumina. Its abrasive characteristics are established during the furnacing and crushing operations, so very little of what is accomplished later significantly affects the features of the grains.
Aluminum oxide is tougher than SiC. There are four types of gradations for toughness. The toughest grain is not always the longest wearing. A grain that is simply too tough for an application will become dull and will rub the workpiece, increasing the friction, creating heat and vibrations. On the other hand, a grain that is too friable will wear away rapidly, shortening the life of the abrasive tool. Friability is a term used to describe the tendency for grain fractures to occur under load. There is a range of grain toughness suitable for each application. The white friable aluminum oxide is almost always bonded by vitrification. It is the main abrasive used in tool rooms because of its versatility for a wide range of materials. In general, the larger the crystals, the more friable the grain. The slower the cooling process, the larger are the crystals. To obtain very fine crystals, the charge is cooled as quickly as possible, and the abrasive grain is fused in small pigs of up to 2ton. Coarse crystalline abrasive grains are obtained from 5 to 6ton pigs allowed to cool in the furnace shell.
The raw material, bauxite, containing 8590% alumina, 25% TiO2, up to 10% iron oxide (Fe2O3), silica, and basic oxides, is fused in an electric-arc furnace at 2600C (4700F). The bed of crushed and calcined bauxite, mixed with coke and iron to remove impurities, is poured into the bottom of the furnace where a carbon starter rod is laid down. A couple of large vertical carbon rods are then brought down to touch and a heavy current applied. The starter rod is rapidly consumed, by which time the heat melts the bauxite, which then becomes an electrolyte. Bauxite is added over several hours to build up the volume of melt. Current is controlled by adjusting the height of the electrodes, which are eventually consumed in the process.
After cooling, the alumina is broken up and passed through a series of hammer, beater, crush, roller, and/or ball mills to reduce it to the required grain size and shape, producing either blocky or thin splintered grains. After milling, the product is sieved to the appropriate sizes down to about 40 m (#400). The result is brown alumina containing typically 3% TiO2. Increased TiO2 content increases toughness while reducing hardness. Brown alumina has a Knoop hardness of 2090 and a medium friability.
Electrofused alumina is also made using low-soda Bayer process alumina that is more than 99% pure. The resulting alumina grain is one of the hardest, but also the most friable, of the alumina family providing a cool cutting action. This abrasive in a vitrified bond is, therefore, suitable for precision grinding.
White aluminum oxide is one of the most popular grades for micron-size abrasive. To produce micron sizes, alumina is ball-milled or vibro-milled after crushing and then traditionally separated into different sizes using an elutriation process. This consists of passing abrasive slurry and water through a series of vertical columns. The width of the columns is adjusted to produce a progressively slower vertical flow velocity from column to column. Heavier abrasive settles out in the faster flowing columns while lighter particles are carried over to the next. The process is effective down to about 5 m and is also used for micron sizing of SiC. Air classification has also been employed.
White 99% pure aluminum oxide, called mono-corundum, is obtained by sulfidation of bauxite, which outputs different sizes of isometric corundum grains without the need for crushing. The crystals are hard, sharp, and have better cleavage than other forms of aluminum oxides, which qualifies it for grinding hardened steels and other tough and ductile materials. Fine-grained aluminum oxide with a good self-sharpening effect is used for finishing hardened and high-speed steels, and for internal grinding.
Not surprisingly, since electrofusion technology has been available for the last one hundred years, many variations in the process exist both in terms of starting compositions and processing routes. For example:
Red-brown or gray regular alumina. Contains 9193% Al2O3 and has poor cleavage. This abrasive is used in resinoid and vitrified bonds and coated abrasives for rough grinding when the risk of rapid wheel wear is low.
Chrome addition. Semi-fine aloxite, pink with 0.5% chromium oxide (Cr2O3), and red with 15% Cr2O3, lies between common aloxite, having less than 95% Al2O3 and more than 2% TiO2, and fine aloxite, which has more than 95% Al2O3 and less than 2% TiO2. The pink grain is slightly harder than white alumina, while the addition of a small amount of TiO2 increases its toughness. The resultant product is a medium-sized grain available in elongated, or blocky but sharp, shapes. Ruby alumina has a higher chrome oxide content of 3% and is more friable than pink alumina. The grains are blocky, sharp edged, and cool cutting, making them popular for tool room and dry grinding of steels, e.g., ice skate sharpening. Vanadium oxide has also been used as an additive giving a distinctive green hue.
Zirconia addition. Aluminazirconia is obtained during the production process by adding 1040% ZrO2 to the alumina. There are at least three different aluminazirconia compositions used in grinding wheels: 75% Al2O3 and 25% ZrO2, 60% Al2O3 and 40% ZrO2, and finally, 65% Al2O3, 30% ZrO2, and 5% TiO2. The manufacture usually includes rapid solidification to produce a fine grain and tough structure. The resulting abrasives are fine grain, tough, highly ductile, and give excellent life in medium to heavy stock removal applications and grinding with high pressures, such as billet grinding in foundries.
Titania addition. Titaniaaloxite, containing 95% Al2O3 and approximately 3% Ti2O3, has better cutting ability and improved ductility than high-grade bauxite common alumina. It is recommended when large and variable mechanical loads are involved.
Single crystal white alumina. The grain growth is carefully controlled in a sulfide matrix and is separated by acid leaching without crushing. The grain shape is nodular which aids bond retention, avoiding the need for crushing and reducing mechanical defects from processing.
Post-fusion processing methods. This type of particle reduction method can greatly affect grain shape. Impact crushers such as hammer mills create a blocky shape while roll crushers cause splintering. It is possible, using electrostatic forces to separate sharp shapes from blocky grains, to provide grades of the same composition but with very different cutting actions.
The performance of the abrasive can also be altered by heat treatment, particularly for brown alumina. The grit is heated to 11001300 C (20152375 F), depending on the grit size, in order to anneal cracks and flaws created by the crushing process. This can enhance toughness by 2540%.
Finally, several coating processes exist to improve bonding of the grains in the grinding wheel. Red Fe2O3 is applied at high temperatures to increase the surface area for better bonding in resin cut-off wheels. Silane is applied for some resin bond wheel applications to repel coolant infiltration between the bond and abrasive grit, and thus protect the resin bond.
A limitation of electrofusion is that the resulting abrasive crystal structure is very large; an abrasive grain may consist of only one to three crystals. Consequently, when grain fracture occurs, the resulting particle loss may be a large proportion of the whole grain. This results in inefficient grit use. One way to avoid this is to dramatically reduce the crystal size.
The earliest grades of microcrystalline grits were produced as early as 1963 (Ueltz, 1963) by compacting a fine-grain bauxite slurry, granulating to the desired grit size, and sintering at 1500C (2735F). The grain shape and aspect ratio could be controlled by extruding the slurry.
One of the most significant developments since the invention of the Higgins furnace was the release in 1986, by the Norton Company, of seeded gel (SG) abrasive (Leitheiser and Sowman, 1982; Cottringer et al., 1986). This abrasive was a natural outcome of the wave of technology sweeping the ceramics industry at that time to develop high strength engineering ceramics using chemical precipitation methods. This class of abrasives is often termed ceramic. SG is produced by a chemical process. In a precursor of boehmite, MgO is first precipitated to create 50-m-sized aluminamagnesia spinel seed crystals. The resulting gel is dried, granulated to size, and sintered at 1200C (2200F). The resulting grains are composed of a single-phase -alumina structure with a crystalline size of about 0.2m. Defects from crushing are avoided; the resulting abrasive is unusually tough but self-sharpening because fracture now occurs at the micron level.
With all the latest technologies, it took significant time and application knowledge to understand how to apply SG. The abrasive was so tough that it had to be blended with regular fused abrasives at levels as low as 5% to avoid excessive grinding forces. Typical blends are now five SGs (50%), three SGs (30%), and one SG (10%). These blended abrasive grades can increase wheel life by up to a factor of 10 over regular fused abrasives, although manufacturing costs are higher.
In 1981, prior to the introduction of SG, the 3M Co. introduced a solgel abrasive material called Cubitron for use in coated abrasive fiber discs (Bange and Orf, 1998). This was a submicron chemically precipitated and sintered material but, unlike SG, had a multiphase composite structure that did not use seed grains to control crystalline size. The value of the material for grinding wheel applications was not recognized until after the introduction of SG. In the manufacture of Cubitron, alumina is co-precipitated with various modifiers such as magnesia, yttria, lanthana, and neodymia to control microstructural strength and surface morphology upon subsequent sintering. For example, one of the most popular materials, Cubitron 321, has a microstructure containing submicron platelet inclusions which act as reinforcements somewhat similar to a whisker-reinforced ceramic (Bange and Orf, 1998).
Direct comparison of the performance of SG and Cubitron is difficult because the grain is merely one component of the grinding wheel. SG is harder (21GPa) than Cubitron (19GPa). Experimental evidence suggests that wheels made from SG have longer life, but Cubitron is freer cutting. Cubitron is the preferred grain in some applications from a cost/performance viewpoint. Advanced grain types are prone to challenge from a well-engineered, i.e., shape selected, fused grain that is the product of a lower cost, mature technology. However, it is important to realize that the wheel cost is often insignificant compared to other grinding process costs in the total cost per part.
The SG grain shape can be controlled by extrusion. Norton has taken this concept to an extreme and in 1999 introduced TG2 (extruded SG) grain in a product called ALTOS. The TG2 grains have the appearance of rods with very long aspect ratios. The resulting packing characteristics of these shapes in a grinding wheel create a high strength, lightweight structure with porosity levels as high as 70% or even greater. The grains touch each other at only a few points, where a bond also concentrates in the same way as a spot weld. The product offers potential for higher stock removal rates and higher wheelspeeds due to the strength and density of the resulting wheel body (Klocke and Muckli, 2000).
Recycling of concrete involves several steps to generate usable RCA. Screening and sorting of demolished concrete from C&D debris is the first step of recycling process. Demolished concrete goes through different crushing processes to acquire desirable grading of recycled aggregate. Impact crusher, jaw crusher, cone crusher or sometimes manual crushing by hammer are preferred during primary and secondary crushing stage of parent concrete to produce RA. Based on the available literature step by step flowchart for recycling of aggregate is represented in Fig. 1. Some researchers have also developed methods like autogenous cleaning process , pre-soaking treatment in water , chemical treatment, thermal treatment , microwave heating method  and mechanical grinding method for removing adhered mortar to obtain high quality of RA. Depending upon the amount of attached mortar, recycled aggregate has been classified into different categories as shown in Fig. 2.
Upon arrival at the recycling plant, CDW may either enter directly into the processing operation or need to be broken down to obtain materials with workable particle sizes, in which case hydraulic breakers mounted on tracked or wheeled excavators are used. In either case, manual sorting of large pieces of steel, wood, plastics and paper may be required, to minimize the degree of contamination.
The three types of crushers most used for crushing CDW are jaw, impact, and gyratory crushers (Fig.8). A jaw crusher consists of two plates fixed at an angle (Fig.8a); one plate remains stationary while the other oscillates back and forth relative to it, crushing the material passing between them. This crusher can withstand large pieces of reinforced concrete, which would probably cause other types of crushers to break down. Therefore, the material is initially reduced in jaw crushers before going through other types. The particle size reduction depends on the maximum and minimum size of the gap at the plates. Jaw crushers were found to produce RA with the most suitable grain-size distribution for concrete production (Molin etal., 2004).
An impact crusher breaks CDW by striking them with a high speed rotating impact, which imparts a shearing force on the debris (Fig.8b). Materials fall onto the rotor and are caught by teeth or hard steel blades fastened to the rotor, which hurl them against the breaker plate, smashing them to smaller-sized particles. Impact crushers provide better grain-size distribution of RA for road construction purposes and are less sensitive to material that cannot be crushed (i.e. steel reinforcement).
Gyratory crushers, which work on the same principle as cone crushers (Fig.8c), exhibit a gyratory motion driven by an eccentric wheel and will not accept materials with large particle sizes as they are likely to become jammed. However, gyratory and cone crushers have advantages such as relatively low energy consumption, reasonable amount of control over particle size and production of low amount of fine particles.
Generally, jaw and impact crushers have a large reduction factor, defined as the relationship between the input's particle size and that of the output. A jaw crusher crushes only a small proportion of the original aggregate particles but an impact crusher crushes mortar and aggregate particles alike, and thus may generate twice the amount of fines for the same maximum size of particle (O'Mahony, 1990).
In order to produce RA with predictable grading curve, it is better to process debris in two crushing stages, at least. It may be possible to consider a tertiary crushing stage and further, which would undoubtedly produce better quality coarse RA (i.e. less adhered mortar and with a rounder shape). However, concrete produced with RA subjected to a tertiary crushing stage may show only slightly better performance than that made with RA from a secondary crushing stage (Gokce etal., 2011; Nagataki etal., 2004). Furthermore, more crushing stages would yield products with decreasing particle sizes, which contradicts the mainstream use of RA (i.e. coarser RA fractions are preferred, regardless of the application). These factors should be taken into account when producing RA as, from an economical and environmental point of view, it means that relatively good quality materials can be produced with lower energy consumption and with a higher proportion of coarse aggregates, if the number of crushing stages is prudently reduced.
primary impactors | hpi - hazemag
In the cement industry, the HPI series of single rotor Primary Impact Crushers are used with a grinding path for the production of a raw material with the ideal grain size distribution for further grinding in vertical roller mills.
The HPI Crusher has two impact aprons and can also be equipped with a grinding path. The rotor is capable of handling feed material up to 3m and the grinding path restricts the amount of oversize product. The gap settings of the impact aprons and grinding path can be adjusted by means of spindles, or controlled hydraulically, and allow optimum control over the end product granulometry.
This patented rotor is HAZEMAGs own design and is a cast and welded steel construction, with individually cast rotor discs welded to the rotor body, to accommodate the proprietary blow bars as primary crushing implements. The blow bars are locked in position in the holders by means of wedges, which can be easily removed for blow bar replacement.
The impact aprons are retained in position by hydraulic cylinders; allowing adjustment and locking at the touch of a button. The instant a pre-set limiting value is overstepped in the crushing chamber, the impact apron retracts in a controlled manner. As soon as the load value returns to normal, the impact apron resumes its pre-set position, and operation continues without interruption.
In the cement industry the grinding path is the critical component for reducing oversize in the process of primary crushing. The grinding path of the HAZEMAG HPI-H series has been significantly improved, with a technically-advanced system of hydraulics and mechanics allowing retraction in the event of an overload. This patented solution increases operational safety and production capacity, and the potential for damage and excessive downtime resulting from foreign objects is greatly reduced.
The exclusive and unique computer-controlled hydraulic adjustment system for the impact aprons (and grinding path) allows for quick gap adjustments, optimum control over product size, smoother crusher operation, tramp iron protection, reduced downtime and reduced operating costs. In our technically advanced HAZtronic system, impactor performance can be optimised with pre-programmed apron settings to further enhance product quality and consistency.

impact crusher & cement crusher manufacturer | stedman machine company
An impact crusher is a machine that uses striking as opposed to pressure to reduce the size of a material. Impact crushers are designated as a primary, secondary, tertiary or quarternary rotorcrusherdepending on which processing stage the equipment is being utilized.
As a trusted cement crusher manufacturer, every Stedman crusher is engineered for a maximum feed size, target output size, and total capacity, but selecting a crusher on these criteria alone is merely half the task. These can be used as a cement crusher, mineral crusher, and many more. Every size reduction project requires evaluation of the complete process to maximize production and keep operating costs low. From start to finish Stedman provides you with the information to make the correct choices for your processing needs.
Stedman's testing facilities provide real-world conditions to view your materials being processed. Test out a range of different size reduction methods, saving you both time and money when selecting the proper size reduction method.
Feed enters the crushing chamber and meets the breaker bars or plates propelling feed against the breaker plates resulting in impact reduction. There are no screens or grates holding material inside impact crushers, so material is efficiently processed at high rates for low costs.
Before this question can be addressed, we need to first determine if the material is friable. When we're talking about dry material processing, friable means a material will break before it bends. Thousands of materials are successfully crushed with impactors using many different equipment variations.
There are also many friable materials that aren't well suited to impact crush. Granite, for example, is friable but too hard, making impact crushing more expensive than other types of crushing. Stedman Machine has extensive experience crushing a variety of materials, a testing facility with full-sized equipment, and more than 10,000 test reports to help you determine what type of equipment is best for your needs. Contact our experts today by calling (800)262-5401 to discuss your specific application!

cement crusher | crushers for cement plant | agico cement equipment
The hammer crusher is a kind of crushing machine which uses impact energy to crush materials. It is mainly composed of shell, rotor, impact iron, lining plate, and screening strips. The shell is divided into upper and lower parts, which are welded after being cut by the steel plate. There is a high manganese steel lining plate inside the shell, which can be replaced if worn. The spindle is equipped with hammers with regular array distribution, and together with a rotary table and a hammer passing shaft, they compose the rotor. When the motor drives the rotor to rotate, the centrifugal forces cause the hammers to point radially outwards. After the large materials enter the crushing chamber from the feed port, they are smashed by the high-speed moving hammers. The qualified materials are discharged from the gap between the bottom screening strips, and the unqualified materials are left in the crushing chamber and repeatedly hit by the hammer until they can be discharged.
Hammer crusher can be used for medium and fine crushing of barite, limestone, gypsum, terrazzo, coal, slag, and other soft and hard ores. The equipment can also adjust the gap between the screen strips, improve the discharge particle size to meet the need of users.
1. High output capacity and reduction ratio;2. Low power consumption and even product granularity;3. Simple mechanical structure, compact and light;4. Less investment, simple maintenance, and convenient management.
Jaw crushers are used for the crushing of very hard and abrasive raw materials for cement manufacturing. Jaw crusher is a type of earlier crushing equipment, which is still widely used in smelting, building materials, electric power, water conservancy, transportation, and other industrial fields. Jaw crusher is mainly used for crushing all kinds of ores and bulk materials into medium particle size. The maximum compressive strength of the crushed materials is 320MPa.
The working principle of jaw crusher is: motor drives belt and pulley to move the jaw up and down through eccentric shaft; when the jaw rises, the angle between elbow plate and jaw becomes larger, thus pushing the jaw plate closer to the fixed jaw plate, at the same time, the material is crushed; when the jaw goes down, the angle between elbow plate and jaw becomes smaller; the movable jaw plate leaves the fixed jaw plate under the action of tension rod and spring, at which time the crushed material is discharged from the lower opening of the crushing chamber. With the continuous rotation of the electric motor, the jaw makes a periodic movement to crush and discharge materials, realizing mass production.
Impact crusher is best suited for crushing hard and medium-hard materials with natural cleavage planes. It is widely used in the industry of metallurgy, cement manufacturing, chemical, engineering, etc.
When the feed material enters into the crushing chamber of the impact crusher and collides with the impactor bars installed on the rotor, which is revolving at high speed. The feed material is broken under the high-speed impact, its fragments are hit back by the breaker plate and broken again until they are sufficiently reduced to the proper size to pass through the gap between the two breaker plates. Adjusting the gap between the breaker plates and the rotor frame can change the size and shape of the material.
The cone crusher is also called gyratory crusher, it is mainly used for crushing medium-hard to hard raw materials. In the working process of the cone crusher, the motor drives the eccentric sleeve to rotate through the transmission device, so that the inner crushing cone oscillates under the drive of the eccentric sleeve. The feed material is compressed and crushed by the fixed conical bowl and the oscillating crushing cone head. The material crushed into the proper size will fall and be discharged from the bottom of the machine.

2 types of concrete crushers | hxjq
The rapid development of urbanization has resulted in the accumulation of a large amount of waste concrete, which not only occupies land resources but also pollutes the air and the environment. Therefore, the recycling of waste concrete has become an important issue that the government needs to solve.
Abandoned concrete blocks are high-quality concrete aggregates which have many advantages. For example, after the buildings are dismantled, the high-quality concrete blocks and silt after crushing and screening can be used as recycled coarse and fine aggregates for concrete. The fine powder can be directly used as the raw material of cement. The concrete prepared from recycled cement and recycled aggregate can enter the next cycle, which realizes zero waste discharge throughout the whole cycle.
Concrete, cement and other wastes in construction waste can be used as building aggregates and recycled brick raw materials after being reasonably crushed, screened and crushed. And the main equipment used for crushing concrete can be divided into two types: traditional fixed crusher and mobile concrete crusher, among which small crushing equipment is favored by users.
Although the compressive strength and hardness of concrete are not high, due to the porosity and the formation type, the concrete has good toughness and can buffer the crushing force, which causes low crushing efficiency. So, what kind of crusher should be selected for concrete crushing? In the process of crushing waste concrete, according to the working principle of more crushing and less grinding, it is necessary to carefully configure the concrete crusher equipment.
Jaw Crusher, also known as concrete crusher, is usually used as the primary equipment for concrete crushing. It is also suitable for metallurgy, mining, construction, chemical, water conservancy and railway sectors, and used as a device for fine and medium crushing of ores and rocks with compressive strength below 250 Mpa.
In recent years, the small jaw crusher has been favored by foreign users because of its small size, easy transportation and installation, low price, and fast profit. The models like PE-150250, PE-200350 and PE-400600 have become the best choice for customers to crush concrete.
After the rough breaking, steel and iron equipment are added to remove the steel bars and iron blocks in the waste concrete, which will eliminate the damage of steel bars and iron blocks to the equipment without affecting the production. Generally, the impact crusher, the fine crushing jaw crusher or the cone crusher is used as the secondary crushing to crush the material to less than 2 cm, and the selected granularity can be basically achieved.
For smaller discharge sizes, a three-stage crusher can be used, for example, the fine crushing crusher or the roller crusher is used to further crush the ore to less than 10 mm. In the actual production, the suitable crusher can be selected according to the size of the concrete block. It can be combined in single or multi-machine operations, both of which have the characteristics of simple operation, strong controllability and high production efficiency.
In the international environment of the crusher industry, besides the traditional jaw crusher, high-efficiency and environmentally-friendly construction concrete crusher will be the trend of future development.
In view of the characteristics of concrete waste, Henan HXJQ Machinery designed a concrete crushing equipment-mobile concrete crusher. The waste concrete after crushing can be used for reinforcing the foundation, producing bricks, cement, etc, not only achieving its values but also solving the issue of land and environment problems, which can be described as two-fold.
The mobile concrete processing station produced by HXJQ Machinery adopts multi-stage combination mode, which includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher and vibrating screening equipment, conveyor belt, etc. Generally, the concrete crushing station is composed of a concrete crusher (sand making machine), a screening machine, a feeder, a conveyor belt, a steel frame, a drive system, an electric control system, a motor unit and the like.
The concrete material is sent into the crusher by the feeding equipment, and the crushing machine converts the large concrete into gravel. The finished product which meets the standard is transported by the conveyor belt to the stacking place, and the products which don't meet the standard will be transported by the other conveying belt to the crusher again until it is qualified.
The integrated vibrating screen, feeder and the under-belt conveyor, the vibrating screen and the crusher integrated into the vehicle can reach any position on the working site under any terrain conditions. Thus the mobile concrete crusher has many advantages like reasonable material matching, smooth flow, reliable operation, convenient operation, high efficiency and energy saving.
1. According to the driving way, it is divided into tire type and crawler type: the tire type concrete crushing and sorting machine needs semi-trailer traction to run, while the crawler type can be remotely operated with buttons. Relatively speaking, the latter is more intelligent and the price is more expensive.
2. According to the function, it is divided into crushing type and sand making type: the concrete crushing and screening machine includes a combination of crushing equipment such as jaw crusher, cone crusher and impact crusher. The sand making type is mainly equipped with sand making machine and hammer sanding machine.
The mobile crushing station can prevent and control environmental pollution, improve the ecological environment, and protect natural resources. The size and model can be designed according to the different production needs of users. According to the statistics of the HXJQ machinery, the small mobile crusher is chosen by more foreign users because of its reasonable price, high quality, convenient transition, operation and maintenance.
A project introduction of construction concrete treatment: in October 2018, a customer found HXJQ, and hoped that we could provide him with the complete equipment for breaking construction waste. Our technical manager quickly contacted him and learned that the customer had a large amount of construction waste to be disposed of.
From the perspective of economic foundation and practical operation, the technical manager recommended the fixed crushing station to him and designed a complete set of equipment suitable for his actual needs. In the end, the customer introduced the PE-400600 jaw crusher and PF-1010 impact crusher produced by our company to break the concrete waste. The finished sandstone is used for brick making, roadbed materials, etc., and the separated steel is recycled.
The pretreated concrete with reinforcing steel is sent to the jaw crusher for initial breakage by the conveyor belt, then effectively separated by the iron remover, and sent to the impact crusher for fine crushing. The crushed material is sieved by the vibrating screen. The finished material is output by the conveyor. If the material does not meet the specifications, it will continue to return to the impact crusher and break again.
The development and utilization of waste concrete as a recycled material solves the problems of a large amount of waste concrete treatment and the resulting deterioration of the ecological environment; on the other hand, it can reduce the consumption of natural aggregates in the construction industry, thereby reducing exploitation of the natural sand and gravel, which has fundamentally solved the problem of the depletion of natural aggregates and the destruction of the ecological environment because of the lack of sandstones.
Under this circumstance, the crusher plays an irreplaceable role in the recycling of materials. Whether it is the traditional fixed crusher or the latest mobile crusher, both of them have their own advantages. As long as the size of the stone produced by the equipment can meet the standard, it is a good crusher.
