Impact crusher and cone crusher are generally used after the jaw crusher and mainly applied for the medium and fine crushing of rock materials in the crushing process. These two crushers are wildly used in mining, railway, energy, cement, chemical, construction and other industries. What is the difference between impact crusher and cone crusher? Which one is better for stone crushing? Here, Luoyang Dahua engineer will take you to understand the difference between impact crusher and cone crusher.
The difference between impact crusher and cone crusher
Different working principles
A, Impact crusher is a kind of crusher by using impacting energy to break materials.
B, Cone crusher uses lamination crushing principle to break the material.
Different hardness of materials
A, Impact crusher is suitable for crushing all kinds of small hardness, more brittle materials, such as: limestone, coal gangue, brick, and concrete, etc.
B, Cone crusher is mainly used for crushing medium and above medium hardness of large block materials, such as: pebble, marble, quartzite, granite, and basalt, etc.
Different finished particle size
A, Impact crusher has the function of micro shaping, the finished product grain shape is good, mostly in the shape of a cube, but the discharging particle size is coarse (the discharge opening is adjusted between 10-50mm). It is more used in the construction, building materials and other industries.
B, Cone crusher has finer particle size (its discharge opening is adjusted between 4-65mm), and is mainly used in mineral processing.
Different input and use costs
A, The cone crusher is slightly more expensive than the impact crusher, but the cone crusher has relatively lower energy consumption, more stable production, longer service life of its wearing parts, avoid the need for frequent downtime maintenance and spare parts replacement.
B, Although the early purchase cost of impact crusher machine is low, the later maintenance cost is higher than the cone crusher.
Therefore, in the long run, the cone crusher cost performance is higher.
