4 differences between hammer crusher and impact crusher,Get Now

The hammer crusher and impact crusher, not only similar in appearance, but also similar in working principle, so what are the differences between the hammer crusher and impact crusher?

The hammer crusher and impact crusher, not only similar in appearance, but also similar in working principle, so what are the differences between the hammer crusher and impact crusher? After all, both of them have a lot of customer groups, so it is clear that their respective working advantages are not to be underestimated.

The difference between hammer crusher and impact crusher: many angles, in fact, there are many differences.

The shape of hammer crushers and impact crushers are different

There are two series of hammer crushers, which are small hammer crusher and heavy hammer crusher. Here we say the shape is more like the impact crusher, referring to the heavy hammer crusher. The front side of heavy hammer crusher and impact crusher are more similar, and the back side is more obviously different. The back side of heavy hammer crusher is more smooth and curved, while the back side of impact crusher is angular.

Hammer Crusher and Impact Crusher have different material applications

The impact crusher is mainly used for crushing materials with particle size up to 500mm and compressive strength up to 350MPa, such as granite, limestone, concrete, etc., while the hammer crusher is suitable for crushing medium hardness stone with compressive strength less than 200MPa.

Hammer crusher and impact crusher have different discharge size

Impact crusher controls the discharge size by adjusting the spacing between impact frame and plate hammer, the minimum can not be less than 15ml, normally, the material from impact crusher is below 60mm; hammer crusher controls the discharge size by adjusting the spacing between grate or liner and hammer head, the grate is easily blocked.

Hammer crusher and impact crusher have different plate hammer and hammer head

There are only a few plate hammers installed on the rotor of the impact crusher, which are easy to replace; the hammer head of the hammer crusher can reach up to dozens, which is time-consuming and laborious to replace. Moreover, the shape and size of the plate hammer and hammer head are different.
Who uses hammer crusher and impact crusher better?

After all, the comparison should be made on the same working premise, comparing the advantages and disadvantages of these two crushers, rather than comparing the disadvantages of one side with the advantages of the other, but only analyzing from the user’s needs, who is more in line with the investor’s expectations.

Both impact crushers and hammer crushers crush materials through the impact of the plate hammer and hammer head running at high speed, and the products are also mostly cubic in shape, and the discharge granularity is very popular.

The impact crusher is more commonly used in the production line, as it can handle more types of materials and has a better grain size, and is mostly used in the secondary crushing process of major stone crushing and sand production lines. Relatively speaking, the application range of hammer crusher is a little smaller. The heavy hammer crusher has a large feed opening, smaller discharge size, large crushing ratio, crushing materials without secondary crushing, can be formed in one go, the customer’s crushing production can use only one heavy hammer crusher, less investment.
