Mobile Impact Crusher Operational Guidelines

A mobile impact crusher can be used to break down rocks, limestone, and other hard substances. Proper usage plays a role in keeping workers safe and protecting the hammers and pressure plates that are contained within this type of machinery.

The Cover And The Filtration System

A vented cover is usually secured to the top of a crusher. This cover allows materials to pass through the hopper. Small materials that resemble dust are routed through a filtration system. The dust components are often referred to as fines. Before materials are crushed, a machine operator should ensure that the vented cover is locked in place and that the filtration system does not contain any blockages or require dust components to be emptied.

A secure cover and clean filtration system will protect hands from sharp blades and prevent the accumulation of dust on internal components. If the assessment isn't conducted at the beginning of each crushing session, injuries could occur and premature wear to internal parts could cause a disruption in the crushing process.

The Loading And Stabilization Process

Overfeeding a unit can bog down the internal components. If too many materials are forced through the hopper, internal clogs can slow down the crushing process. In addition, the teeth on the blades can become worn down or damaged. Some crusher machines contain a regulation feature. This feature will prevent too many substances from passing through the hopper. If a unit doesn't contain a regulation feature, it is an operator's responsibility to keep an eye on how many materials are placed inside of a unit during each crushing session.

A scale, buckets that contain printed measurements, and a shovel are some tools that can aid with keeping track of the size of each load that will be crushed. A mobile impact crusher is designed to be moved about a worksite. In spite of the transportability of this type of machine, a unit will be rather heavy and may contain a thick base. A mobile impact crusher needs to be stabilized during the crushing process.

Land should be flat and not contain any loose materials. If a mobile crushing unit is used on a surface that is not level, the crushing process will be inconsistent. Materials may be pushed toward one side of the unit's interior. This could affect the consistency of crushed materials and disrupt the manner in which the internal components of a crusher operate.
