Impact crushers play an important role on the job site, as it is their job to reduce the size of things like rock, waste and concrete to facilitate construction and removal. The process consists of an operator feeding chunks of material into the machine’s hopper that then crushes them, turning the pieces into small chunks of a more consistent size. Once the materials have been run through one crusher, they can also be run through another to make them smaller if the job calls for smaller chunks. Impact crushers can be found in a number of makes and models to accommodate a wide variety of job sites and applications.
Two of the main uses for impact crushers include the processing of raw materials and the preparation of materials for recycling. To give you a better idea of how impact crushers are used during these processes, we’ve provided short descriptions below:
- Raw Material Processing Impact crushers can be used to process raw materials like those found in mining. Impact crushers make smaller pieces more compact and therefore easier and more efficient to transport. Crushing the materials can also make them easier to separate by type to find useful materials and discard the rest.
- Recycling Preparation Another important use for impact crushers is the preparation of materials for recycling. Previously used materials, like concrete, rocks or gravel, can be run through the impact crusher to produce a compact series of chunks that are ready to use in recycled aggregate.
