Cone crusher: Cone crusher was came out in 1927 and was officially applied in industry field. It mainly featured with large crushing ratio, high crushing efficiency, low power consumption and good particle shape, which is suitable for the medium and fine crushing of various kinds of ores and rocks with less abrasion and few dust emission. But the complex structure makes the maintenance becoming difficult and expensive.
