Hammer crusher has become a commonly used crushing equipment in quarries and cement plants due to its large capacity and short process. Gyratory crusher is a new type of coarse crushing equipment used in large-scale crushing production lines in mines and quarries. Both are in appearance and principle. It is quite different from the structure.

Different production capacity

For hammer crusher, especially for large and heavy hammer crushers, it is no longer easy for an hourly production to reach 2000t.

The gyratory crusher can handle 3000t/h mine and aggregate crushing easily, and the gyratory crusher can even reach 5000t/h or higher (some manufacturers have introduced that its largest model has a capacity of 9000t when it is broken), and its production capacity is usually 2-3 times of jaw crush, especially suitable for large-scale production lines.

Different applicable materials

Hammer crushers are not suitable for processing materials with medium hardness or higher, such as granite, basalt, diabase, pebbles, etc. The main reason is that they are severely worn and costly.

But the gyratory crusher can crush almost all materials, granite, limestone, dolomite, iron ore, manganese ore, gold ore, etc., soft rock and hard rock can be crushed.

Security of the device

The production capacity of hammer crusher is generally not more than 2000t/h. This is mainly due to product design. The hammer crusher has no counterweight wheel design. The hammer crusher with a very large volume is not very safe, which also restricts its large One reason for this, so in terms of production capacity, it can’t be compared with the cyclical breakdown.


The gyratory crusher is generally used as a coarse crushing equipment, and the fine crushing equipment and sand making equipment will be configured according to the production requirements. Multi-stage crushing is considered to be more in line with the “high-quality” finished material process, and the compressive strength and crushing value are better. Well, there are few cracks, and it meets the relevant industry standards and can also meet the requirements of higher-performance concrete.

For small and medium-sized production lines, the hammer crusher has a short process, simple process (compared to multi-stage crushing), and one machine for two purposes. Advantages such as cement or sandstone) are welcomed by some users.

But in terms of sand making, the hammer crusher has a poor grain shape, a lot of powder, and the aggregate will have micro-cracks.
