Impact of Feeding Position on Power Draw and Size Reduction in a Cone Crusher
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2017

The power draw of cone crushers, used in comminution and aggregates production, is in most cases monitored with too low sampling rate in comparison to the operating speed. This does not give adequate information on the actual operation mode and performance of the crusher during a full rotation of the eccentric motion of the mantle, leaving variance in the power draw unnoticed. This investigation has utilized a high speed measurement system for power draw on a lab scale cone crusher in order to identify an induced miss alignment in the feed, which is a common operation phenomenon, and the consequences of it. The results show that variations in the feeding alignment can be diagnosed and identified using only power draw measurements and that there are possibilities to use the approach for future control systems to improve fatigue life, operating efficiency, production yield and liberation in comminution processes.
