The jaw crusher is normally used as primary crusher. It is mostly suitable for hard materials and the wear cost are lower than the impact or cone crusher. As for cone crusher it is recommended for hard materials as a secondary crusher where you can get fractions from 0–32mm.
Like the jaw crusher, the cone crusher makes use of both a fixed and movable cone to grind ore and rock into small pieces. Pre-crushed product is fed vertically through the top of the cone crusher and, once crushed between the cones, the ground materials are discharged through the discharge hole.
