Cone crusher A crushing machine suitable for raw materials in metallurgy, construction, road construction, chemical and silicate industries. According to different crushing principles and different product particle sizes, they are divided into many models. Crushers are widely used in many sectors such as mining, smelting, building materials, highways, railways, water conservancy and chemical industries. The cone crusher has a large crushing ratio, high efficiency, low energy consumption, uniform product size, and is suitable for medium and fine crushing of various ores and rocks. The models are mainly divided into SMG series, SMH series, SMS series and spring type, etc. Below we introduce their working principle and structure respectively. In the follow-up, we will also introduce the development history, working principle, composition, influencing factors, technical advantages, operation matters, common faults, inspection and maintenance of cone crusher.

With the continuous development of mining technology, cone crushers are also divided into several categories, including spring cone crusher, mortar cone crusher, hydraulic cone crusher and composite cone crusher according to the type; according to the model is divided into ordinary PY cone crusher, Simmons cone crusher, compound cone crusher, standard hydraulic cone crusher, single cylinder hydraulic cone crusher, multi-cylinder hydraulic cone crusher and many other models. The hydraulic crusher is developed on the basis of digesting and absorbing various types of cone crushers with international advanced level in the 1980s. It is obviously different from the design of the traditional cone crusher in structure, and focuses on the main advantages of various types of cone crushers known so far. It is suitable for fine crushing and superfine crushing of hard rocks, ores, slag, refractory materials, etc.

Cone crusher structure introduction: Cone crusher structure mainly includes frame, horizontal shaft, moving cone, balance wheel, eccentric sleeve, upper crushing wall (fixed cone), lower crushing wall (moving cone), hydraulic coupling, Lubrication system, hydraulic system.

Working principle of cone crusher

In the process of the cone crusher, the motor drives the eccentric sleeve to rotate through the transmission device. The moving cone rotates and swings under the force of the eccentric shaft sleeve. The static cone is crushed by multiple squeezes and impacts. When the moving cone leaves the section, the material that has been crushed to the required particle size falls under its own gravity and is discharged from the cone bottom.

Operating Mechanism:

The crushing process is completed between the fixed fixed cone and the moving cone of the cyclic movement. When the cone crusher is working, the horizontal axis of the crusher is driven by the motor through the triangle belt and the pulley. The horizontal axis drives the eccentric sleeve to rotate through the large and small gears. The cone shaft of the crusher produces an eccentric distance under the action of the eccentric sleeve to do the swing motion The surface of the crushing wall is sometimes close to the surface of the fixed cone and sometimes away from the surface of the fixed cone, so that the stone material is continuously crushed by being squeezed, broken and impacted in the crushing cavity. The crushed material is discharged from the discharge port at the lower part of the crusher under the effect of its own weight. The upper cavity of the cone crushing motor cone is supported on the spherical bearing pad at the upper end of the fixed main shaft, and the lower cavity is sleeved on the outside of the eccentric shaft sleeve, and its movement is directly driven by the eccentric shaft sleeve. When the eccentric bushing rotates around the main shaft, the moving cone not only rotates with the eccentric bushing around the center line of the machine, but also rotates around its own axis. The moving cone swings in space around its spherical support center. The axis of the moving cone and the center line of the main shaft intersect at a fixed point, that is, the center point of the sphere, and the included angle is the precession angle. When the crusher is running, the axis of the moving cone makes a conical surface movement relative to the center line of the machine, and the top of the cone is the spherical support center. This point always remains stationary during the movement of the moving cone. Therefore, the motion of the moving cone can be regarded as the rotation of the rigid body around a fixed point, that is, the movement of the moving cone is composed of two kinds of rotational motions: precession motion or involved motion (the moving cone rotates around the center line of the machine) and rotation motion or relative Movement (the moving cone rotates around its own axis).

In the case of no-load operation of the cone crusher, the rotation of the moving cone is determined by the friction torque of the spherical bearing to the moving cone and the friction force of the eccentric bushing to the moving cone. Which moment is greater, the moving cone is based on this torque Direction of rotation. Under normal circumstances, the moving cone rotates along the rotation direction of the eccentric shaft sleeve, and the rotation speed is determined by the difference between the two moments. And this type of cone crusher is between the spherical bearing and the lower bush of the moving cone to control the rotation of the moving cone. In the case of load operation, the friction torque of the stone on the cone surface of the moving cone far exceeds the friction torque of the eccentric bushing on the moving cone.
