As the name implies, a portable crusher or crushing plant is capable of breaking down almost type of material, organic or otherwise, from simple debris to complex ores and minerals. A concrete crusher, for example, can crush rocks and mix them with concrete and asphalt for roadside construction projects. Whether you need a used rock crusher for sale, a concrete crusher, or something for iron ore, sandstone, and other similar materials, the expert sellers at My Little Salesman have got you covered.
Choosing the right portable crusher largely depends on the type of industry you’re in – for example, you don’t need a used stone crusher if you are going to be handling softer materials. No matter what you need to have crushed, however, there are three portable crusher types to choose from:
If you go with an impact crusher, you will have to choose between vertical and horizontal shafts. A vertical shaft impactor has a higher speed than a horizontal shaft impactor, which causes the materials to be busted into evenly-shaped cubes (which is good for handling uneven rock and ores). A horizontal shaft impactor uses hammers to do the job, and is therefore better for softer materials such as limestone and phosphate.
