How important are rocks in your life? They aren`t? You sure? Take another guess. How about the fact that the Earth is almost literally made of rocks? And how about the fact that the whole civilization is actually built out of rocks! Yeah, so rocks are important. And in that direction, so are rock crushers. We need machines that will reduce rocks into smaller ones, into rock dust or even gravel. In this video particularly, we give you the Metso 4265 Gyratory Crusher, the best out there probably! The gyratory crusher comes from the family of rock crushers and is called that way because of the gyratory motions it performs in order to reduce rocks.
The Metso 4265 Gyratory Crusher weighs 264,000 pounds and is 10 floors high! The motor that runs inside is a 500 horsepower electric one. This incredibly powerful machine can digest 2557 tons of stone per hour! As for the way of work, Ron Evans, the Field Service Manager at Metso Minerals explains that it is actually a giant nut crusher! The same motions and same performance, two stronger surfaces combining together to crush a softer one. In this case, believe it or not, the rock is a SOFT surface. Take a look at the Metso 4265 Gyratory Crusher!
