Ensure that the jaw chamber is choke fed. The level of material in the jaw should just be below the jaw stock deflection plate. I wonder how you extend the life of jaw liners And Reduce volume of fines and wet material entering the crusher.

When a gyratory crusher's mantle is replaced, how does the operator know that the correct product size is being achieved at start-up? How does one Evaluate or Estimate to best control a Crusher Product Size ?
