What is an Impact Crusher?
An impact crusher is a machine that uses striking as opposed to pressure to reduce the size of a material. Impact crushers are designated as a primary, secondary, tertiary or quarternary rotor crusher depending on which processing stage the equipment is being utilized.
Types of Impact Crushers:

Impact Crusher FAQs
Feed enters the crushing chamber and meets the breaker bars or plates propelling feed against the breaker plates resulting in impact reduction. There are no screens or grates holding material inside impact crushers, so material is efficiently processed at high rates for low costs.
Not sure what crushing method best suits your material? Schedule your testing today!
Before this question can be addressed, we need to first determine if the material is friable. When we're talking about dry material processing, friable means a material will break before it bends. Thousands of materials are successfully crushed with impactors using many different equipment variations.
There are also many friable materials that aren't well suited to impact crush. Granite, for example, is friable but too hard, making impact crushing more expensive than other types of crushing. Stedman Machine has extensive experience crushing a variety of materials, a testing facility with full-sized equipment, and more than 10,000 test reports to help you determine what type of equipment is best for your needs.
