The newly-developed VSI crusher (vertical shaft impact crusher) is a crusher and shaper. Changing feeding methods and core structure of the crushing cavity, it can be used as a crusher or a shaper. It enables one machine two uses at any time as per different applications without expanding investment.
VSI crushers are widely applied in expressway and railway building, hydropower station construction, bridge and tunnel building, concrete batching plant, especially for crushing and gravel shaping. VSI crushers are highly recommended when it comes to the shaping of gravels used in concrete aggregates, whose concrete strength is above C 60 or which required to be freezeproof and leakproof. In the fine crushing section, VSI is the substitute of impact crusher, and it is much better in terms of main performance indexes.
Feed at center
Materials fall into the hopper and then through the feeding opening in the center enter the high speed rotor which will throw out the materials with high speed. Materials firstly strike those materials that are free falling down. Then, materials strike the materials-liner in the vortex or the impact liner and are rebounded to the top of crushing cavoty and then fall down. After that, the falling materials with materials shot from the impeller form a continuous materials curtain. Ultimately, crushed materials will be charged from the discharging opening.
Feed both in the center and from sides
The materials fall into the hopper and circle hole and then will be divided into two parts by the distributing plate. One part of materials cross the distributing plate and enter the high speed impeller and then is accelerated and thrown out .The other part falls down from the sides of distributor. Materials firstly strike the free falling down materials. Then, materials strike the materials-liner in the vortex or the impact liner and are rebounded to the top of crushing cavity and then fall down. The falling materials with materials shot from the impeller form a continuous curtain of materials. At last, crushed materials will be discharged from the discharging opening.
