FINER MILL FEEDS MORE ECONOMICALLY PRODUCED Fine mill feeds minus 3/8-5/16-1/4 inch and even smaller sizes can be more economically produced in the Symons Shorthead Cone Crusher. Hundreds of installations of cones throughout the world have proved that it costs less to crush to these sizes than it does to grind.
Within the past few years, Symons Shorthead Cone Crushers have been installed at a number of new mines and older mines, too, where a better and finer ball mill feed was desired. McKenzie Red Lake is typical of one of the newly developed mines where a Short Head is being used. Going into production in 1935 the 3 foot Short Head providing a minus ¼ inch product and taking care of increased tonnage as the mining operations are expanded has an important place in the mine flow sheet.
In many instances, Short Heads are following Standard Cones previously installed. By providing a finer mill feed and with the equipment they have supplanted, overall crushing and milling costs have been greatly reduced.
With crushers installed in all of the world’s major mining fields, a vast fund of experience has been gained in fine crushing operations. Write us about your fine crushing problems.
