Rock crushers are used to process material within the mining process chain. Crushers are typically required ahead of conveyors, shafts or other transport or conveying devices. Crushers are used in underground and surface mining operations if necessary. In operations where crushing is applied, uncrushed material is usually transported to the primary crusher by transporting machine, e.g. rear dump trucks, wheeled loaders, trains, or ore-passes. A feeder device can be used in combination with a crusher to control the material flow into the crusher. In processing plants, different types of crushers are used in different crushing stages depending on the input material and the requirements for the final product. The most common types used within the mining context are jaw and cone crushers. [1, P. 1285]
