Introduction to VSI and Crusher Types

The vsi crusher is a sort of impact crusher, which provides higher reduction ratios with lower power usage. The impactors can be deemed as a ‘stone pump’ functioning as a centrifugal pump. Material is fed via the center of the propeller, where it is hastened to high speed afore getting discharged via openings in the propeller edge. The material is smashed as it knocks the facings of the outer body at high velocity plus also owing to the rock-on-rock (ROR) action. The crushers are mainly employed in the manufacture of fine supplies, counting sand, with a decent cubical form.


Crusher types

Crushers are categorized into three types dependent on the phase of crushing they achieve. The crusher classifications include (i) primary, (ii) secondary, and (iii) tertiary. The primary crusher accepts material straight from run of mine (ROM) subsequent to blasting and yields the first decrease in size. The yield of the primary crusher is then put in a secondary crusher, wherein additional size reduction of the material is done. Also the secondary crusher output is fed to a tertiary crusher where more decrease in the material dimension is carried out. A number of the materials might pass via four or many of the smashing stages afore it is lessened to the preferred size. The crushing degree is spread over a number of stages as a way of diligently adjusting product size plus regulating waste material.

Crushers are as well grouped by their technique of mechanically conveyed splintering power to the material. Gyratory, roll and Jaw crushers function by using compressive forces whereas impact crushers like the hammer crusher utilize high speed impact strength to realize cracking.


Crusher picking conditions

The following are the points of reference employed in the picking of the best kind of crusher for grinding materials:

  • Production prerequisite – this comprises output shape, size and the necessary capacity.
  • Ore features – It embraces material condition, input (feed) proportions, material abrasiveness and material friability.
  • Operating concerns – It comprises equipment obtainability, power demand, accessibility and replaceable parts cost, maintenance necessities, reduction ratio, required human resource, availability of maintenance parts, safety and environs.
  • Apparatus roughness – Can a crusher pass uncrushable remains devoid of it getting damaged.
  • Crusher capital cost plus the crusher station entire cost
