Impact Crushers

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.

Cement Crusher Manufacturer

As a trusted cement crusher manufacturer, every Stedman crusher is engineered for a maximum feed size, target output size, and total capacity, but selecting a crusher on these criteria alone is merely half the task. These can be used as a cement crusher, mineral crusher, asphalt crusher and many more. Every size reduction project requires evaluation of the complete process to maximize production and keep operating costs low. From start to finish Stedman provides you with the information to make the correct choices for your processing needs.

Features & Benefits

  • Primary, secondary and tertiary impactors available
  • Industry-leading rotor designs
  • Easy maintenance
  • Front and rear opening housings on HSI Impactors

How does an impact crusher work?

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.

Have Questions? Ask Our Experts

How can I tell if my material can be crushed with an impactor?

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.
