How Jaw Crusher works?

Jaw Crusher is one of the most widely used crushing equipment in mining industry. It is is equipment with simple structure, stable performance, easy maintenance, even final particles and high crushing ratio.

Jaw Crusher has been widely applied in mining, metallurgical, construction, road and railway building, water conservancy and chemistry etc. It is mainly applied in the primary crushing in which the compressive strength of original material is under 320Mpa.

Jaw Crusher can be used with the ore dressing equipment or used independently. Jaw crusher can be used to produce the aggregate for subgrade, railway ballast and construction sand and stone. The jaw crusher is divided into the coarse jaw crusher and the fine jaw crusher, i.e. PE series and PEX series.

Illustration of How Jaw Crusher Crushes

Jaw crusher machine uses motor as its power. Through the motor's wheels, the eccentric shaft is driven by the triangle belt and slot wheel to make the movable jaw plate move by a regulated track. Therefore, the materials in the crushing cavity composed of fixed jaw plate, movable jaw plate and side-lee board can be crushed and discharged through the discharging opening.
