Hello everyone, I need an advice for selection of jaw crusher. I know the calculations as product analysis information to select gyratory crusher (i.e. P=136(x^0.878)) but for jaw crushing I have no idea. Could you please suggest reference ?

Last replied to by Alex Doll
Remove the balls from the ball mill and install rods instead.  Rod milling makes significantly less fines and can function down to 100 µm as long as the reduction ratio is not too great.

good day, Wanted to find out if there is a better way of describing the effective aperture size of a slot if one has say 0.63*8.8 mm and 0.63*12 mm. They are both 0.63 mm panels, but how do we account for that difference in slot length in the descri...

Last replied to by Winchester
The difference between the two slot sizes for each panel is the open area per square foot. You could use the open area as part of the description of the panels.
