What Is A Jaw Crusher (with Pictures)
Jaw Crusher. The Jaw Crusher reduces the size of stones and ores by squeezing, it is able to accept large size raw materials and is usually used for primary crushing. Typical features of a jaw crusher are its two large flywheels and the V-shaped jaws in the crushing chamber. During operation, the material enters the crushing chamber from above.
Jaw Crushers are sized by the top opening of the crushing chamber. For example, a 32 x 54 Jaw Crusher measures 32 from jaw die to jaw die at the top opening or gape opening and 54” across the width of the two jaw dies. The narrower bottom opening of the crushing chamber is used to size the discharge material.
