Since the gyratory, unlike the jaw crusher, crushes on full cycle, it has a higher capacity than a jaw crusher of the same gape, roughly by a factor of 2.5–3, and is usually favored in plants handling large throughputs: in mines with crushing rates above 900 t h −1, gyratory crushers are always selected. Gyratory crushers are identified by the size of the gape and the size of the mantle at
Jaw and gyratory crushers are heavy equipment and are not used extensively in the stone industry. In a jaw crusher, the material is fed in between two heavy jaws, one fixed and the other reciprocating, so as to work the material down into a narrower and narrower space, crushing it as it goes. The gyrator crusher consists of a truncated conical
Applying the crushing force by rolling the nut breaks flats and gives a product that is more “cubic” than the jaw crusher. The largest-scale equipment can treat a flow with the magnitude of 4,000 tonne.h − 1. With a production rate and flow that are equal, the power consumed by a gyratory crusher is similar to a jaw crusher.
The jaw crusher, because of its box-frame construction, and simple toggle mechanism, is especially well adapted to extra heavy design for the crushing of extremely tough materials: in this respect it holds some advantage over the gyratory type, because the extra strength necessary for such work can be built into it at less cost than is required for the gyratory with its more complex shell
Both jaw crusher and gyratory crusher can be used as primary crusher. Jaw crushers are more widely used, probably because of their price. Except for the price difference, there are others different in the two types of crushers. Such as working principle, structure, applications, capacity, input/output particle size, etc. This article will analyze their differences in detail. Working Principle
The gyratory crusher is taller than the jaw crusher, thus needs a high workshop design. Besides, gyratory crusher is heavy than jaw crusher, it’s not convenient to move. Capacity Gyratory crusher can work continuously, has high productivity and crushing ratio( up to 6-9.5), working performance is very stable, light vibration. Jaw crusher
Compare Gyratory Crusher vs Jaw Crusher · Gyratory Crusher Chat Now. 11.23 Taconite Ore Processing US Environmental Protection Agency. Sep 27, 2012 Gyratory crushers are generally used for primary crushing, and cone crushers from the feed to the next crusher and allow for closed-circuit Chat Now. Comparison of Jaw and Gyratory Crusher Mineral Processing Nov 15, 2013
The crushing action in gyratory crushers is regarded as rings or ‘helics’ (spirals) of feed down through the crusher of which a single section may be regarded as similar to the jaw crusher. Therefore, computations leading to the performance of gyratory crushers may be considered very similar to jaw crushers. Thus, as in jaw crushers, the performance of gyratory crushers will be affected by
the comparison between gyratory crusher and jaw crusher 1.The crushing of gyratory crusher is continuously, so gyratory crusher features high productivity, high reduction ratio, running stable, low consumption, more excellent finished product shape, etc. The disadvantage is that gyratory crusher features high height, complex structure
A jaw crusher has a wider range of settings—generally, a maximum of two to three times the smallest setting. The tables also show that for a comparable maximum size of feed and setting, a gyratory crusher has a much greater capacity than a jaw crusher. The gyratory crusher obtains this advantage only at the cost of greater power to drive the crusher.
Many small process plants consisted of one crusher, either jaw or gyratory rock crushers, one elevator and one screen. Recrushing, if done, was taken care of by the same machine handling the primary break. The single crusher, when of the gyratory type, might be any size from the No. 2 (6″ opening) to the No. 6 with 12-in. opening.
Even the largest commercial crushed stone-plants were small, consisting of one crusher, either jaw or gyratory, one elevator and one screen. When demand grew beyond the capabilities of one crusher, it was generally a simple matter to add a second machine. When the business outgrew the capacity of this sort of plant, it was not unusual to double up, either in the same building, or by erecting
The action of the gyratory crusher, and of the other member of the reciprocating pressure family, the jaw crusher, is fundamentally a simple one, but as will be seen a great deal of thought and some very progressive engineering has been expended upon the design of crushing chambers to increase capacities and to permit the use of closer discharge settings for secondary and fine-reduction
With a gyratory crusher, at any cross section there are in effect two sets of jaws opening and shutting like jaw crushers. In fact, the gyratory crusher can be regarded as an infinitely large number of jaw crushers each of infinitely small width, and, as consequence, the same terms gape, set, and throw, have identical meaning in the case of the gyratory crusher.
