Roll Crusher Applications
Roll Crushers are simple in design and construction, long-lasting, economical, and versatile. Roll crushing surfaces operate at a fixed distance apart, as opposed to the continually changing distances in a jaw or cone crusher. Product size is much more consistent. Both oversized pieces and fined are minimized. Wet, sticky materials are more easily handled.
The rolls act as flywheels, contributing to smooth operation and efficient use of power. Roll crushers are low in profile and relatively easy to install. They can be fed with a minimum of headroom, or even choke fed. Adjustments are simple. Internal parts are readily accessible.
Typical feed materials for Roll Crushers include: bauxite, cement clinker, chalk, cinders, clay, coal, glass, gypsum, limestone, burnt lime, rock salt, sandstone, shale, sulfur ore, sea shells, and sewer sludge clinker. Single Roll Crushers, sometimes called lump breakers, can also be used for breaking frozen or agglomerated materials.
