The quarrying of natural stone types is associated with the use of machines that crush material with high compressive strengths systematically and effectively. Jaw crushers are ideally suited for tough applications in quarries and are mainly used as primary crushers.
Jaw crushers are used for coarse and primary crushing of brittle, medium-hard and hard stone. They as used most frequently as primary crushers.
