The difference between cone crusher and hammer crusher

We have compared the pros and cons of many crushing equipment, and have received feedback from many users. Recently, a friend left a message to understand the difference between cone crusher and hammer crusher to help them purchase equipment.

Before understanding the difference between the two in practical applications, we first need to have a certain understanding of their basic crushing principle:

Simply put, the cone crusher uses lamination to crush, the mortar wall continuously moves to the crushing wall, squeezes the material sandwiched between the two, and crushes it. The hammer crusher adopts impact crushing, which is mainly broken by the impact, shearing, tearing of the rotating hammer head, the mutual impact between the materials and the counterattack of the lining plate.

Let's compare the difference between the two in actual production.

Cone crusher is suitable for the medium and fine crushing stage, and is often used in the second and third breaks of the production line. Hammer crushers can be used for coarse crushing and sometimes fine crushing.

I have received a message from a user saying that I just want to use a hammer crusher. I simply crush it. Indeed, the hammer crusher can be formed at one time without secondary crushing. in the case of.

The cone crusher is suitable for processing high-hardness stone materials, such as iron ore, basalt, granite, cobblestone, etc. It is an ideal equipment for crushing hard ore.

The hammer crusher is suitable for processing medium and soft ores, such as limestone, coal gangue, dolomite, shale, etc., can not handle materials with high hardness, otherwise the hammer head wears out quickly, and the frequency is better (a friend said that he To break the granite with a hammer crusher, change the hammer head in 2 or 3 days, only replace the hammer head for thousands).

From the application stage of cone crusher and hammer crusher, it can be seen that the cone crusher has stricter requirements on the feed particle size. Generally speaking, the feed particle size is about 300mm. The hammer crusher can be used for coarse crushing, and its feeding size can reach 1200mm.


Cone crusher is often used to process 05, 12, 13, 46 stones, the output particle size is generally 10-50mm. The hammer crusher can be coarsely crushed, finely crushed, and sand-made, with a large output particle size range. According to the different finished products, it can be divided into coarse and finely crushed, and sand under 5mm.


For hard rock, the cone crusher is often used as a second or third breaking device, followed by a sand making machine for sand making or shaping. Earlier we said that the hammer crusher can make sand. Yes, it belongs to the traditional sand making process. It is now used less. Although the process is simple, the yield is low, it is easy to crush, and the finished aggregate may produce micro cracks. , Affects quality, and also affects sales and prices, so it is often used as an auxiliary sand making equipment.


Considering the equipment price, the input of the hammer crusher is lower than that of the cone crusher. Although the initial purchase cost is not high, the replacement of the wearing parts such as the hammer head in the later stage is also not a small cost, especially for crushing medium-hard materials. Relatively speaking, the wear parts of the cone crusher have a longer service life and less investment in the later stage.

Hammer crusher and cone crusher are both classic equipments in mine crushing machinery, which are widely used. This article briefly analyzes the difference between the two in application, and hopes to help you buy.

In addition, it should be noted that what we call the hammer crusher is a product in the traditional sense, because many areas of small and medium-sized production lines are still using this type of equipment, because the crushing ratio is large, and the price is low. However, at present, many hammer crusher manufacturers have innovated on the basis of traditional hammer crushers, such as heavy hammer crusher, double shaft hammer crusher, etc. The equipment takes into account the effect of crushing, fine crushing and sand making, and is updated. After the performance is better, the price will also increase.
