Tips to Determine the Best Stone Crushing Equipment.jpg

Mobile or Stationary Crusher

You should think about the portability of the crushing machine. If you need to move the machine around often, you may want to consider a lighter, more portable machine. If you don’t need to move the machine, a heavier machine may be a better choice. Mobile crushers are gaining in popularity because they can be moved more easily from location to location. This makes stone crushing more affordable, too, especially for smaller operations. Learn more today.


Consider Safety

Safety should always be a priority when selecting stone crushing equipment. Make sure the equipment you select is safe to use and will not pose a risk to the workers operating it or to others on the job site. That being said, modern crushing equipment comes with many safety features to help keep everyone safe. Ask about your particular brand, make, and model today.


Consider Maintenance

Some types of stone crushing equipment require more maintenance than others. Make sure you consider the level of maintenance required before selecting the type of equipment you will use. Ideally, you should invest in a piece of crushing equipment that is extremely low maintenance. This ensures your employees are not spending too much time on routine maintenance and that you won't have unplanned breakdowns, either.


Consider the Humidity Levels of Your Stone

The minerals in stones can hold water content, and the amount of water or humidity that a stone holds can make a difference in the performance of your crushing equipment. For example, if there is too much water in the rock, the viscosity of the rock increases. This can reduce the ore discharge speed of your crusher, which then reduces the output or productivity. The ore can block the part of your crusher where the rock is discharged, which can cease production and even harm your machine. Speak to our crushing equipment experts to learn more today.


By considering the size, type, power, portability, and cost of the stone crushing equipment, you’ll be able to choose the best machine for your needs. With the right crushing machine, you’ll be able to crush stones quickly and efficiently, helping you to save time and money.
