Gyratory Crusher Design (1 reply)

When designing a crusher for a mine which experiences a transition from soft to hard rock ores, how can you ensure the crusher will be able to optimally crush both ores for processing during the LOM production?

In addition, what metrics from the rock are integrated into crusher design? For example, is the UCS of a rock factored into the design of a crusher?

During the design of the Crushing Plant all the factors of the rock which may affect the design of the crusher have to be incorporated. As we know mine will experience a transition from soft to hard rock we have to design the crusher for hardest ore.

Characteristics of the rock which are important are;

  1. Crushing index
  2. Moisture
  3. Abrasiveness
  4. Shape
  5. Size
  6. % fines fraction
