Laboratory Jaw Crusher is suitable to set on a bench top within a lab or a sturdy surface within a field office or camp. This particular jaw crusher’s small size makes it ideal for particle use on smaller sampling projects. A jaw crusher is often used during the initial stage of the sample preparation chain. Precrushing hard materials such as aggregates for later further reduction or assay and testing. This particular crusher’s smaller size and weight make it suitable for small-scale mineral exploration projects. However, due to ease of shipping, it can be purchased as a long-term investment, with the ability to move from project to project, field site to field site. It can take 50 x 25 mm particles in feed size, reducing them down to less than 1.5 mm output. Thanks to a powerful single-phase electric motor and hardened steel jaws.
Laboratory Jaw Crusher is suitable to set on a bench top within a lab or a sturdy surface within a field office or camp. This particular jaw crusher’s small size makes it ideal for particle use on smaller sampling projects. A jaw crusher is often used during the initial stage of the sample preparation chain. Precrushing hard materials such as aggregates for later further reduction. Often to reduce the material’s feed size for input into other machines. As such, this particular jaw crusher with its small benchtop size has found its mark in use for smaller-scale projects. Such as for academic purposes as well as early-stage mineral exploration. Its size enables it to be used within field offices and site camps providing there is access to a power source.
The laboratory jaw crusher can be used in various fields of application. Particularly within mineralogy and metallurgy on mineral exploration projects. Often utilised to reduce field samples of mineral ores down to smaller sizes. The reduced material can then be subject to fire assays or reduced further via the use of a pulverizer into a finer size for XRF analysis.
The crusher is advised to be used on a flat, sturdy surface. Secured laboratory benches are suitable, further. A flat floor will also be suitable. This will ensure the crusher does not move or cause harm and injury to users when in operation. The machine features a Baldor motor, which is fully enclosed for safety and held within a NEMA 56 Frame. This produces ½ HP, 1725RPM, and is a single phase only (1PH), 220/50Hz motor. Samples ranging from 50 x 25 mm in size can be input into the crusher which will be reduced down to less than 1.5 mm in size. (Multiple passes if the material is very hard). The input material passes through its jaws, (with options to choose from). These are sealed as well as the bearings and use a fully hardened eccentric drive shaft. The material then exits into a 350 cc sample container beneath.
Coming in at 31 kg, the crusher is fairly heavy, yet it enables it to perform its tasks and remain sturdy. Overall, it measures 47 cm x 32 cm x 28.5 cm, however, the base it is mounted in is 20.3 cm x 40.6 cm. It is an excellent piece of equipment for any small-scale project or small testing applications. Its size and weight enable it to be easily moved by two people or with a trolley or other form of assisted apparatus. In addition, it can be shipped just as easily due to its size and weight. Therefore, it can be used as a long-term investment, being moved from project to project with ease as opposed to larger size crushers which must be bolted to the floor and moved via pallet.
