What Is A Roll Crusher?
A roll crusher is a type of crushing equipment used to reduce the size of materials. Size reduction is accomplished by compressing feed material between two cylindrical rollers that rotate in opposite directions. Before crushing, the material feeds into the gap between the rollers. As the rollers rotate, the material is compressed and reduced in size.
Mining, metallurgy, construction, power generation, and chemical industries commonly use these machines. They are also used in recycling to destroy waste materials, such as scrap metal, wood, and some plastics.
Roll crushers come in different configurations depending on the crushed material and the required output size. Some standard roll crushers include single-roll, double-roll, and triple-roll crushers. They can also be designed with smooth or corrugated surfaces on the rollers to provide different levels of crushing action.
How Roll Crushers Work
Roll Crushers are simple in design and construction. These machines are long-lasting, economical, and versatile across many applications and industries.
Impact, shear, and compression are necessary for crushing and size reduction. The material enters the crusher and is impacted by the roll as it rotates. Then, shear and compression forces act upon the material as it’s pulled between a crushing plate or rolls.
The crushing rolls on these machines act as flywheels, contributing to the smooth, continuous operation and efficient use of power. Roll crushing surfaces operate at a fixed distance apart, unlike the continually changing distances in a jaw or cone crusher. The result of using this equipment is a more consistent product size.
