Impact crusher and cone crusher are both medium crushing processing equipment, which are used for secondary crushing in sand and gravel production line. The differences are as follows:
- Different crushed materials
Impact crusher is suitable for processing soft and brittle materials, such as bluestone, limestone, etc.
Cone crusher is suitable for processing hard materials, such as: granite, river pebbles, etc.
- Types and principles of crushing
Impact crusher belongs to impact crushing, which uses impact energy to crush materials;
Cone crusher is a type of squeeze crushing, using laminated crushing raw materials; it realizes the fine crushing of materials under the action of impact, squeezing and bending.
- The scope of use
Impact crushers are mostly used in small and medium-sized stone factories.
Cone crushers are mostly used in large stone processing plants.
- Finished product size
The impact crusher has a micro-shaping effect; the processed material has good grain shape and less powder;
The processed materials of the cone crusher are cubes with low noise and environmental protection;
Cone crushers are more expensive than impact crushers, mainly because of the long service life of conical wearing parts;
The initial investment cost of the impact crusher is low, but the maintenance cost is high;
- Environmental protection
The impact crusher is noisy, dusty and polluted;
Cone crusher has low noise, low pollution and environmental protection;
