Jaw Crusher Vs Cone Crusher

Description: Both jaw crusher and cone crusher are the main crushing equipment. Their applications are very wide. As the two big crushers, what are the difference between jaw crusher and cone crusher? Many customers want to know detailedly it. They are different in the appearance. Their working principle is also different. This is obvious. Today, we will introduce some differences in details. Hope it is beneficial for you.


Compared with jaw crusher, cone crusher is relatively expensive. But the maintenance cost of cone crusher is relatively low.


Jaw crusher is aimed at all kinds of hardness rock. It mainly is suitable for the coarse crushing and medium crushing. It is often used as the primary crushing. The jaw crusher is widely used in mineral processing, building materials, silicate and ceramic industries.

Cone crusher is mainly applicable to medium crushing and fine crushing. It is often used as the secondary crushing. Its product size is also more uniform. Cone crusher chamber design is diverse. Among them, the standard cavity type is applied to medium crushing, medium model is suitable for fine crushing and the short head type is suitable for super fine crushing.


Cone crusher is easy to start. While jaw crusher need to rotate the heavy flywheel to start. Cone crusher can be packed to mine, and large cone crusher can be directly into the raw ore. The jaw crusher can not be packed to mine, and it demands feed uniform. Compared with jaw crusher, the Sheet products generated by cone crusher are less. In addition, cone crusher is relatively stable, less vibration and the foundation weight is less. Cone crusher has the depth cavity, the high production capacity, and low unit power consumption. Compared with the jaw crusher, cone crusher’s production capacity is more than twice as high as it, and the power consumption per ton of ore is lower 0.5-1.2 times than it.
