Why would I use a compression type crusher, like a jaw or cone, instead of an impactor?

In this video, Sara Arendt, Senior Applications Specialist at Telsmith, explains why you would use a compression style crusher, like a jaw crusher or cone crusher, instead of an impact crusher.

Here are the important points that Sara covers in the video:

1. An impactor is typically used in applications where the stone is softer, less dense, and less abrasive. By throwing or striking the material against a  surface, the rock will break along its natural fault lines. This reduction method can cause high wear part costs, high maintenance costs, and produce a lot of fines.

2. A compression crusher, such as a jaw or cone, will perform better in medium to very high compression strength applications, as well as abrasive ones. The material is reduced by squeezing the rock between a stationary piece of steel and one that is moving. Typically, a cone crusher will see years of service with minimal maintenance costs and reduced fines reduction than an impact crusher.
