Increasing the Capacity of Your Stone Crusher: Expert Tips and Strategies

Stone crushing industry is an important industrial sector in the country engaged in producing crushed stone of various sizes depending upon the requirement which acts as raw material for various construction activities such as construction of roads, highways, bridges, buildings, and canals, etc.

Stone crushers have a limited capacity range, which is necessary to ensure high-quality materials. With new technology being introduced every day, there are different types of equipment that support the crushing needs, but what is the primary crusher and how does it work to achieve the required output?

How does a primary crusher work?

A primary crusher is the driving force of the success of your plant. Here is what a successful process of choosing a primary crusher looks like. One should begin with crusher purpose, move to model refinement, and finish with a successful installation.

1. Identify the purpose of the crusher. The first step in selecting a primary crusher takes place at a high level. It’s necessary to identify the purpose the crusher will be used for. This purpose is a given that precedes the entire decision-making process. Sometimes, a measure of guidance or experience is needed.

2. Follow the steps outlined in this article to achieve the best crushing efficiency for jaw, cone, gyratory and impact crushers and to ultimately increase profits and reduce fines production.

3. Follow correct crushing principles. The number one priority for any crushing plant is to be operating as efficiently as possible. Owning a higher capacity crusher ensures production targets are met, yet a crusher with a larger bowl diameter allows the feeding entrance to be made larger as well.

4. Ensure the feed is evenly distributed. The incoming feed material should be directed on a vertical plane into the center of the crusher. When the incoming feed is not directed into the center, most of the crushing work will be accomplished in the lower portion of the crushing chamber, where the jaw’s wear rate is the highest.

5. Develop a maintenance discipline. When establishing a regular maintenance program, the maintenance department and crushing plant must be extremely vigilant in immediately stopping the crusher if any issues are detected. Maintenance leads to prolonged service life of the conveyor belt.

6. Winning the battle against bottlenecks. It’s recommended that cone crushers operate with the crushing chamber full. This maximizes rock-on-rock crushing, minimizing the wear of the manganese wear parts.

Some tips to improve the overall performance of your cone crusher

One such event leads to an increase in the crushing forces within the chamber. The concave segment is the crusher’s weakest point. The concave segment can cause undersizing when scalping is not effective. When scalping is efficient, undersized material that would normally fall through the chamber stays within the crusher longer by scalping the fines to the side of the chamber.


By following the above mentioned strategies and tips, you can increase the capacity of your stone crusher without much difficulty. All you need to do is carry out research, analyze the industry trends, and make appropriate decisions for your plant.
