During the production process of rock crusher, the crushing efficiency is not only affected by its performance, but also affected by several other factors. Knowing the factors affect stone crusher crushing efficiency can help investors improve the production rate. In the following part, we focus on factors affect the production efficiency of rock crusher.
Factors Affect Rock Crusher Efficiency
There are mainly 4 factors that affect rock crusher efficiency: raw material properties, raw material moisture content, abrasion of spare parts and raw material feeding size.
Raw Material Properties
Different types of crushers have different working principles. The physical properties like hardness and fragility of raw material will all affect the crushing efficiency of a stone crusher. If we adopt the proper type of crusher to process proper raw material, the crushing efficiency of the crusher is high. On the contrary, while being used to crush raw materials with high hardness or viscous material, the crushing efficiency will reduce.
Raw Material Moisture Content
If the moisture content of raw material is too high, it will also reduce the crushing efficiency of a rock crusher. This is because during the crushing process, too wet raw materials will adhere to the crushing cavity and other parts, reducing the volume of the crushing cavity and the crushing efficiency.
Abrasion Of Spare Parts
During the working process of stone crusher, crushing cavity directly contact raw materials, making it the main wear-resistant part in the crusher. In different crushers, the crushing cavities are formed by different parts. In jaw crusher, the crushing cavity is formed by fixed jaw plate and movable jaw plate and in cone crusher, the crushing cavity is formed by concave and mantle.
If the crushing cavity is seriously damaged, the crushing force will reduce, which will lead to the reduction of crushing efficiency. Besides, the abrasion of the crushing cavity will also make the final products size increases, affecting the crushing effect.
Raw Material Feeding Size
It needs longer time to crush large sized raw materials than small sized raw materials. Raw materials with small feeding size are easy to crush, so the crushing efficiency is high.
The production efficiency of the rock crusher has great influence on the efficiency of the whole crushing plant. Operators should pay attention to the above 4 factors during the working process of rock crusher and solve the problems in time in order to improve the production efficiency.
