Jaw crushers are used in a wide variety of industries across many fields, and on many materials, including:
- Hardrock metallic and non-metallic ores: gold/silver/copper, wollastonite, barite, tungsten, quartz, coal, limestone
- Aggregate: field stones, river rock, blast rock, lava rock
- Construction waste: asphalt, concrete, bricks, pavers, etc.
- Decorative stone industry waste: cuttings, remnants, granite scrap, marble, sandstone
- Recycled materials: glass, metallic slag, porcelain, compressed metallic blocks
- Fertilizer components
- Sea shells and bones
The jaw crusher has been a staple of the hard rock mining industry since its invention. It is used as a primary crusher for all types of ores. The jaw crusher typically takes the larger run of mine product and produces discharge for feed to a secondary crusher such as a ball mill or hammer mill. Our jaw crushers help customers in many different industries, but small-scale hard rock mining industry is still going strong.
As with hard rock mining, the aggregate industry is no stranger to the jaw crusher. Jaws will take rounded stones or blasted rock from the quarry and reduce them them to operator specifications. Farmers, loggers, and ranchers trying to manage field stones or other rock on their acreage use our smaller jaw crushers, turning the output into usable fill, gravel, and trail building material. Whether you need to fill pot holes or to use your crushed fines as ballast for a new road, we have the right sized and powered jaw crusher to meet your needs.
Customers in the construction and demolition fields love using our jaw crushers for cleanup and material reuse. If you have piles of debris (concrete, asphalt, pavers, sidewalks, bricks, and/or cinder block) a jaw crusher can turn your scrap pile into dollars. Many of our customers in the construction industry are able to charge clients for debris removal, crush and then resell the rock/aggregate product for profit.
The number of jaw crushers sold to granite counter top and other decorative stone fabricators has risen steadily along with the cost of scrap disposal fees. Decorative stone scrap is created daily, and an industry specific slab-oriented jaw crusher provides an even more productive, value-oriented, and efficient way to process that scrap and eliminate disposal fees. Many of our customers are crushing between 1-5 tons of decorative stone and granite waste daily. Crushed granite can be applied to a wide range of uses and reuses to save dollars and gain additional profits. Below is one of our small 6″x 10″ jaw crushers, rated at 1-3 tons per hour crushing granite counter top waste:
