Gravel is kind of stone that formed by the flow of long-term dash of the water flow. The size of natural gravel is between 2mm and 60mm. As the rapid development of construction industry, gravel is now become one of the most important raw materials.
Gravel is an ideal material for road building. Statistics show that, in the whole world, the whole length of the road made by gravel is longer than the whole length of the road made by cement and asphalt at present. Besides, fine gravel is also a very important component of making concrete.
High Efficiency Gravel Jaw Crusher
To get required sizes gravel particles, we need a jaw crusher to crush it. Firstly, the gravel will be fed into jaw crusher by the feeder for crushing. The gravel is crushed in the crushing cavity which made of a movable jaw plate and a fixed jaw plate. While crushing, the movable jaw plate moves back and forth. When the movable jaw plate moves forward, it will squeeze the gravel. And the gravel will be broken into small particles. When the movable jaw plate moves backward, the crushed gravel will fall down and then discharged out of the crusher from the discharge opening. The movement of the fixed jaw plate and movable jaw plated stimulates the jaw movements of animals while they are eating.
