Crushing equipment in the Asia Pacific region
Crushers are pieces of size reduction equipment that reduce large solid chunks of raw material into smaller parts and change the form of waste materials so they can be more easily disposed of or recycled.
The earliest crushers were hand-held stones, where the weight of the stone provided a boost to muscle power, when used against a stone anvil.
Modern crushers can be considered as primary, secondary or tertiary crushers depending on its size reduction factor. Secondary and tertiary crushers are capable of producing large quantities of uniformly fine crushed stone.
