Jaw crusher operation and maintenance

Jaw crushers are generally installed on top of the concrete foundations. Take into consideration of the weight of jaw crusher, the tough working conditions and the high inertia forces generated by the machine during operation, which may cause the slight vibration of foundation and machine system; therefore, the foundation of the jaw crusher should be separated from the foundation of the workshop. Meanwhile, rubber or wood padding should be placed between the crusher foundation and the jaw crusher base frame to reduce the vibration.

In order to ensure the continuous operation of the jaw crusher to reach full production capacity, it is important to pay attention to the correct operation, regular maintenance and periodic overhaul of the jaw crusher. Read more

Jaw crusher introduction

The distinctive feature of this class of crusher is the two plates which open and shut like animal jaws. The jaws are set at an acute angle to each other, and one jaw is pivoted so that it swings relative to the other fixed jaw. Material fed into the jaws is alternately nipped and released to fall further into the crushing chamber. Eventually it falls from the discharge
aperture.

Jaw crushers are classified by the method of pivoting the swing jaw (see attached figure). In the Blake crusher the jaw is pivoted at the top and thus has a fixed receiving area and a variable discharge opening. In the Dodge crusher the jaw is pivoted at the bottom, giving it a variable feed area but fixed delivery area. The Dodge crusher is restricted to laboratory use, where close sizing is required, and is never used for heavy-duty crushing as it chokes very easily. The Universal crusher is pivoted in an intermediate position, and thus has a variable delivery and receiving area. Read more
