2008 – IQPC Crushing & Grinding Conference, Perth WA

Conclusions:

  • Modern cone crushers have evolved to new levels of performance
  • Crusher physical size, power and crushing force have increased
  • Automation maintains maximum performance
  • Crusher life cycles have reduced because the machines are more highly stressed
  • Comminution characteristics must be established
  • Sizing – manufacturers tables, modifying factors, use simulation to
    validate
  • HPGR will increase the requirement for large cone crushers
  • 1 MW crusher is not far away
