The roll crusher is compression type crusher, and it is made up of roller, bearing , adjusting device and driving device etc.
How does roll crusher adjust the output granularity?
There are adjusting devices (wedge or gasket) between two rolls, with adjusting bolts fixed on the top of wedge. When adjusting bolts hang up wedge, the wedge will drive moving roll away from fixed roll. Roll crusher crushes using compression, with two rolls rotating about a shaft, towards the gap between the rolls. The gap between the rolls is set to the size of product desired, with the realization that the largest feed particle can only be 4 times the gap dimension. The particles are drawn into the gap between the rolls by their rotating motion and a friction angle formed between the rolls and the particle, called the nip angle. The two rolls force the particle between their rotating surface into the ever smaller gap area, and it fractures from the compressive forces presented by the rotating rolls.
Roll crusher is mainly used for the crushing of medium or lower-hardness mines and rocks in mine selection, chemicals, cement and building materials industrial production.
Some major advantages of roll crushers are they give a very fine product size distribution and they produce very little dust or fines. Rolls crushers are effectively used in minerals crushing where the ores are not too abrasive and they are also used in smaller scale production mining of more abrasive metal ores, such as gold. Coal is probably the largest user of roll crushers, currently, though. Coal plants will use roll crushers, either single roll or double roll, as primary crushers.
Usually, these crushers will have teeth or raised forms on the face of the roll. Roll crushers used for minerals and metal ores have smooth faced rolls.
The fixed part of roller and movable roller are driven by the motor via reducer and v-belt, the raw materials fall into the part between the two rollers from inlet of the machine. The two rollers rotates inward simultaneously. The materials are extruded, crushed and ground, then the end products come out from the bottom of this crusher.
