If you are thinking of investing in a new impact crusher for your next project, you may be wondering what to consider. There are many types of crushers in the market, such as jaw crushers, gyratory crushers, cone crushers, roll crushers, and hammer mill. But how does an impact crusher work? Knowing the difference can give you an idea of how to use them to make your projects easier.

An impact crusher is a useful machine used in producing aggregates for construction purposes, mining, quarrying, and waste management. It can crush hard materials and produce uniformly sized finished products. It can either be used as a primary crusher or as a secondary crusher.

In this guide, you’ll learn about the many features of the Rubble Master 12OGO! Impact crusher and how it works. Read on to learn more!


Control Dashboard

To start things off, you need to start-up and operate the crusher. Being one of the most efficient impact crushers in the market, RM 12OGO! features one of the most seamless control panels and operating functions. It doesn’t take a long time before the machine is already powered — it’ll be up and running in just a few seconds.

Although the RM 12OGO! is a high-capacity crusher — sporting an output of 350t/h — it is extremely compact and can be utilized with ease. It also weighs only 35 tonnes, allowing the crusher to be transported from one location to another without difficulty.

The RM 12OGO! Is capable of crushing various sized aggregates and also subsequently sifting and separating different types of rocks and materials. Use the control panel’s simple interface in quarrying, crushing, stockpiling, and other functions.


Main Discharge Conveyor Belt

Main Discharge Conveyor Belt

RM 12OGO! Provides the operator with exceptional automation in performing multiple functions at any given time. Aside from crushing aggregates, it’s also used in sifting materials together and transporting these materials in a convenient location.

Another component of the RM 12OGO! is its unique main discharge conveyor belt that can easily be attached, folded, or removed from the machine. This presents operators with a convenient option, especially when they have to consider the logistics aspects when transporting the crusher.

More than that, this belt is also designed to eliminate instances of blockages from large-sized aggregates that can impede its function. It’s fully-automated and electrically-powered in order to continually support the materials as they’re exiting the equipment.

Unlike other impact crushers, the RM 12OGO!’s unique features make it possible for material flow to take place on the other side of this main conveyor belt. It is likewise supported by a separate magnet separator that can be used for further separation of metal materials from the main aggregate pile.


Hanging Mesh Screen

The RM 12OGO! can also be attached with a hanging mesh screen for efficient separation of aggregates. The RM MS125GO is a deck screen that greatly improves the screening process and ensures that all the materials separated are easily categorized for later use.

One advantage that this deck mesh screen has over other brands is that it can conduct screening in just one pass without sacrificing on accuracy. This lessens the need for secondary separation that may be time-consuming. As for its function, it can perform material splits, breaking apart solid aggregates from 4 to 70mm.

Aside from the mesh deck, the 12OGO! is also equipped with a pre-screening component that can be set up on-site. This standard grizzly prescreen enables high-capacity screening for large volumes of aggregates. It also features a state-of-the-art design for better ergonomic utility.


Vibrating Hopper

Vibrating Hopper

The hopper component is where all the different types of large-sized rocks are fed before going through the crushing phase. In the RM 12OGO!, the hopper is built with a unique system wherein the walls can be folded through hydraulic power. This enables the component to accommodate different-sized rocks without getting stuck in its inner workings.

As mentioned before, the entire 12OGO! Is fully automated, meaning that it’s constantly running as the machine receives a flow of large rocks and other materials. With this in mind, the continuous vibration function further breaks up the size of the rocks, especially when it passes through the latter machinery of the 12OGO.


Wind Sifter

It can be difficult to manually sift through a mound of aggregates, especially when unwanted materials get into the pile. This is why it’s essential that the impact crusher also has a wind sifter that can separate lighter materials from the rest of the pack.

The wind sifter is another component that’s part of the MS125GO deck screen. Its main purpose is to conduct accurate separation of other light materials. After, these same materials are passed through a belt with a width of 500mm.

The belt also has another purpose. For example, if you don’t want to manually have to pile up the crushed aggregates, the belt can be used for organized material stockpiling without virtually any limits at all.


Key Takeaway

When it comes to investing in an impact crusher for your project, it is essential to understand the different factors as to how it functions.

For the RM 12OGO! Impact crusher, there are many notable components, like the conveyor belt, mesh screen, wind sifter, vibratory hopper, and the pre-sifting component. All of these machine parts work together to create an efficient and high-performance machine that does not experience any downtimes when being used.
