Every crusher needs an upgrade from time to time

Cement plant operators worldwide face the same challenges in raw material crushing. The service lifetime of the rotors in the various (several, different) crushing plants plays a central role in their economic efficiency. The reasons for downtimes are manifold.

The rotor has a significant impact on the crusher lifetime and therewith on the ongoing production costs, regardless of the crusher type. All over the world, customers are experiencing the problems of overstressed designs. An incorrectly selected rotor design repeatedly leads to excessive vibrations and thus to cracks in the rotor body, loose rotor disks, and often ends in the failure of the crusher.
