Aggregates required for a given job are generally specified by a full set of gradation limits and other relevant properties of the material. When rock is crushed, the product includes material of the size of the crusher setting, some slightly larger and the rest of the material smaller than the crusher setting. Crusher manufacturers publish grid charts, particle size cumulative distribution curves, and/or product size distribution tables to help predict the gradation of the crusher product. These charts, curves, and tables give the percentages passing or retained on standard size screens for each given setting of the crusher.
