Roll crushers. A brief overwiew

Crusher rolls

The rolls grind material by crushing it, by continuously pressing the ground pieces. Crusher rolls composed of welded frame and two cylindrical rollers equal by diameter. Rolls are located on horizontal axles and are counter-rotating.

Material fallen from above on the rolls are drawn into the gap between rolls by friction force. It is gradually ground there and discharged from the crusher as small grains of a particular size. Grinding degree vary with the gap between rolls.

Crusher rolls crush materials without abrasion because of the constant width gap between rolls. Particles smaller than the gap freely pass without an excessive amount of fine material.

One of axles is fixed and another is located in moveable bearings in order to prevent rolls deformation and breakage when entering too large and solid material pieces into them. When entering a large material piece, a movable axle moves aside over a distance sufficient for this piece travel, whereat it moves closer to the fixed axle by a special spring. Crusher rolls' springs may produce a pressure up to 5000 kgf/cm2.

For charged material grinding by rolls its pieces should be retracted into the gap between rolls rotating towards each other. Material pieces retraction into the gap depends directly on rolls nip angle, i.e. angle between material contact points with crusher rolls surface.

Nip angle size depends directly on pieces size, rolls diameter and material friction coefficient. As for jaw crushers discussed above, rolls nip angle must not exceed a double friction angle, i.e. be more than 34 degrees.

A nip angle becomes smaller while increasing the rolls diameter and space between them as well as while reducing material pieces size.

When considering rolls diameter and size of material pieces subjected to grinding, there is some relation between them, namely:

R = r/(1-cos[φ/2])

R – ground material pieces radius;
r – crusher rolls radius;
φ – nip angle.

In practice, the following rolls diameter (D) is taken: D = (20 ÷ 25) d, where d - a diameter of ground material pieces.

Hence, it follows that crusher rolls are mainly used for medium and fine crushing. However, slugging or fluted rollers can grind much bigger material pieces. For slugging rolls D = (2 ÷ 5) d, and for fluted D = (10 ÷ 12) d.

Crusher rollers diameter can range from 230 to 1500 mm.

Performance and power consumption

Maximum crusher rolls performance is directly proportional to the volume of material strap, which goes through the gap between rolls.

Material volume (V) coming into the gap between rolls is equal to:

Vsec = Fω = beω, cm3/sec

ω – rolls rotation speed, cm/sec;
b – rolls length, cm;
e – gap size between two rolls, cm.

Design of rolls

Two cylindrical rolls are installed on the welded frame in parallel each other. One roll locates on the sliding bearings (movable) and another roll rotates on non-movable bearings (fixed).

Movable roll is retained against the fixed one via cylindrical (in some cases band) springs mounted directly behind the fixed bearing. Springs pressure on the movable roll is transferred by locking screw and special faceplate.

Crusher rollers are equipped with V-belt drive and have roll gear drive. Gear drive is used for those rolls, periphery speed of which is not more than 3 - 4 meters per second during operation. However, gear drive has two major drawbacks: its teeth often break and it generates a noise during operation. High-speed mills' rolls have their own, independent belt drive.

Because movable roll travel is back-and-forth, the quite large inertia forces, which inevitably transmitted to mill foundation, occur during operation. In order to balance inertial forces and, consequently, balance crusher rolls operation, the rolls of some machine designs, which travel in opposite directions, are movable.

The rolls can be fixed. Such machines perform a uniform crushing and operate with virtually no vibration. Although they are cheaper than spring rolls, they are less reliable and inefficient. A special magnetic separator is installed over their feeder in order to prevent fast breakage of these rolls from accidental ingress into metallic pieces into them.

As a rule, roll consists of two parts - inner and outer. Its inner part is a core typically made of cast iron. Roll crushing outer part is a demountable thread band made of hard, wear-resistant steel or chilled cast iron. Roll core is a cone disk with a sleeve with cone rings put on it and reliably screwed up with a disk providing very tight thread band fixing.

For crusher rolls stable operation, regardless of their design, there must be provided a continuous and uniform material charging. As a rule, a special tray feeder is installed directly above the rollers.

Roll crusher

Basic working elements of roll crusher are two counter rotating rolls, which can be equipped with jaws or teeth. Large material pieces feeding from above are captured by jaws and crushed passing between them. At smaller rotation speed, crushing takes place mainly due to compression and friction while at greater rotation speed crushing mainly takes place due to impulse loads.

Due to the fact that one roll of a crusher can be displaced, you can change the gap width between rolls, which allows changing final product grains size.

Roll crushers are used for limestone, salt, chalk, chamotte and other materials with a moderate hardness. The advantages of such devices are compactness and reliability.

Two-rolls toothed crusher

Toothed or fluted rolls operate directly by trapping the material pieces. Toothed roll crushers are able to trap even very large pieces where diameter of which is equal to 1/2 and even 2/3 of roll diameter. Because rolls teeth crush the pieces via cracking, these machines are used for crushing the most fragile materials such as coke, limestone, phosphate rocks, salt and other non-metallic mineral deposits.

Sometimes, roll crushers are two-levelled. Material pieces in such machines are firstly crushed by toothed rolls located above and then by smooth rollers located below.

Three-rolls ring mills

Three-rolls ring mill is a crushing ring that stands vertically and rotates freely. The ring is made of solid steel grades. Three steel rolls are retained by springs against the ring, to its inner surface.

Upper roll is leading and it is driven by transmission. Due to friction force, this roll drives the ring, which transmits the motion to the rest 2 rolls. Both lower rolls retained against steel ring by springs. Material flows along the chute into ring and then it is crushed between the ring and rolls. Ring continuously rotates delaying the material on it and transporting it past other rolls. Material is crushed under pressure, which can be adjusted with springs.

While falling from the ring after grinding the material leaves through the bottom mill hole. While pressing together a thick material layer is collected between ring and rolls preventing their contact. By means of it, the mill can operate quietly and ring and rolls not wear quickly despite the constant mobility during operation. Ring and rolls have a spring support, which allows taking up shocks and blows with ease by changing position.

Such mills performance depends on ground material and its grinding fineness. Pieces fed for grinding should not be more than 30 mm in size. The performance of such mills for average grinding fineness is within 3,000 – 9,000 kg per hour.
