CONE CRUSHER INFORMATION
WEBPAGE TRANSLATION TOOL

Cone crushers are typically used to reduce rock in size at the secondary or tertiary stage. Sometimes, especially with the Telsmith 369 or 489 cones, they can be used as a primary crusher, especially processing sand and gravel. This page provides much more detail on specific cone crushers, including drawings show a side view of the inside of both shorthead and standard cone crushers, and information on capacities and specifications.
Additional illustrations of the inside of a cone crusher can be viewed here, and here.

Information on Telsmith Cone Crushers

Including illustrations and information on Telsmith cone crushers features and benefits, typical capacities, and specifications.

The standard configuration cone crusher allows a larger feed rock and the minimum crushing chamber length is shorter than on the shorthead type. This allows a more evenly distributed discharge gradation, and produces fewer fines.

The shorthead/ fine configuration cone crusher has a more limited feed opening and the minimum crushing chamber length is much longer, resulting in a higher percentage of fines being produced.


The Symons shorthead cone crushers include the 3SH, 4SH, 4 1/4SH, 5 1/2SH, and 7SH. The Symons standard cone crushers include the 3S, 4S, 4 1/4S, 5 1/2S, and 7S.

Other manufacturers such as Telsmith call their shorthead type a "fine cone", or FC for short. The Telsmith fine cone crushers include the 36FC, 48FC, and 66FC. The Telsmith standard cone crushers include the 36S, 48S, and 66S. Telsmith also makes a 389S and 489S which are standard cone crushers that allow a larger size of feed rock and are designed to produce less fines and greater production.

SOME CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CONE CRUSHERS

 
NORDBERG SYMONS CONE CRUSHER

Nordberg Symons cone crushers were built for decades of reliable service. The design was as simple as possible with features that were user friendly, and craftsmen with many years of experience built the frames and components for ruggedness and durability with American steel and pride in their work. Because of this, Symons cone crushers enjoy a worldwide reputation as rugged, durable, easy to maintain, and reliable. Now there is a conversion kit to combine all the features that made them so rugged and reliable, with more modern features to increase production and automation.

This conversion can be accomplished in stages as your budget allows, or as one package to completely modernize your Symons cone crusher. Resulting in a cone crusher that is:

•    More durable, rugged, and reliable
•    Has increased production capacity
•    Makes more cubical product
•    Easier to maintain
•    Easier and safer to operate
•    Producing profits for many more years
•    Will cost less to convert than to replace with new
