A Complete Crushing Production Machine

First of all, let’s look at the different types of crushers to crush limestone.

Choose the best crusher for limestone according to the characteristics of the limestone crusher for sale and project requirements

Jaw Limestone Crusher – Aggregate production for the quarrying industry – Road base and concrete production for the construction industry

Jaw crushers have a robust structure and are ideal for primary crushing by applying compressive forces to break large limestone into smaller particles. The capacity range is all in the range of 1-800t/h.

However, it should be noted that the feed size range of APJ-E series small size jaw crusher limestone for sale is from 130mm to 1000mm. If you want to crush the larger limestone into smaller size material, you need to use APJ-X series crusher with the feed size range from 120mm to 250mm.

Impact-type mini limestone crusher – for secondary or tertiary crushing – mining, infrastructure construction, aggregates industry

Impact-type limestone crushers use impact force to crush limestone and produce a more cubic shaped end product.

AIMIX mainly provides customers with APF series and APF-V series of impact crushers for limestone. When selecting a model, you need to pay attention to align your project capacity requirements, if your project requirements are below 100t/h, we recommend you to choose APF-V series. In addition, if your feed calendar is less than or equal to 700mm and your capacity requirements are greater than 500, we recommend you to choose the more efficient APF series.

Of course, although all of the above equipment has certain disadvantages, but as a professional and experienced manufacturer, we also provide you with solutions as follows.

How to circumvent the disadvantages of each crusher machine for limestone

Jaw Limestone Crusher

  • To minimize the production of fines, the crusher settings, such as the discharge opening and the eccentricity of the crushing chamber, should be adjusted.
  • Implement appropriate feeding techniques to ensure optimum feed size and reduce the chance of oversized rock entering the limestone crusher machine.
  • But in fact, the generation of fine crushed material will also be your new business opportunity, for example, you can configure a screening equipment, the screened out eligible fine crushed material can be used twice, such as into the fine crusher for secondary crushing, or to produce artificial sand.

You can find that the above measures require a joint effort between you and the manufacturer to accomplish. Good configuration and good technology are very important if you want to extend the service life of your equipment, but good operation and good maintenance are even more essential. In addition to our production technology, we will help you to properly train the operators to operate the crusher correctly and effectively.

More than two sets of programs will also be developed and it will be ensured that the crusher is large enough to match the specific application requirements to avoid overloading or under utilization of the limestone crusher machine.

However, operators are also required to regularly monitor and analyze the performance of the crusher to identify any problems or areas for improvement.

By implementing these measures and strictly adhering to the manufacturer’s guidelines and best practices, you can minimize the potential drawbacks associated with each crusher and optimize its performance for your specific application.

As for how to improve your return on investment, doing all of the above aside, the most important thing you need to consider is the operating costs. In addition to closely monitoring the price fluctuations of limestone crushers, you need to pay attention to the limestone crusher machine price changes of raw materials used to produce the equipment, shipping costs, customs clearance, land rental, maintenance and all other aspects of spending.

The following is a brief overview of the maintenance requirements for the five types of limestone crushers mentioned above, which is one of the most important ways to improve your return on investment.

Maintenance includes periodic inspection and replacement of wear parts such as the anvil and rotor tip, checking the hydraulic system, and ensuring proper lubrication of the bearings.

Some customers ask which crusher is best if the crusher types for limestone is to be used in the construction industry for the production of concrete and asphalt.

Using this commercial example, AIMIX carefully explains why for concrete and asphalt production in the construction industry, the most suitable crusher is an impact crusher.

AIMIX after-sales service team

Why is an impact type lime stone crusher the most suitable mobile crusher for concrete and asphalt production in the construction industry?

Impact crushers for limestone are designed to handle hard and abrasive materials, so they are ideal for processing limestone for concrete and asphalt production. Here’s why impact crushers are a suitable choice:

Particle shape

The ability to produce excellent particle shape is important for producing high quality concrete and asphalt. The impact force generated by the crusher helps break down the limestone, producing cube-shaped particles that improve the workability and strength of the final product.


Impact limestone crusher rock offers versatility in adjusting output size. By adjusting the gap between the impact plate and rotor, the desired size of crushed limestone can be achieved. This flexibility allows for the production of different sizes of aggregates required for concrete and asphalt.

High throughput

Capable of handling large feed sizes with high throughput. This is advantageous for construction projects that require the production of large quantities of concrete and asphalt in a given period of time.

Durability and Maintenance

Built to withstand the harsh conditions of construction sites. Impact limestone crushers are equipped with durable wear parts and are easy to maintain, which ensures minimal downtime and efficient operation.


Impact limestone crushers are typically more cost-effective than other crushers such as cone crushers, making them the preferred choice for construction applications where budgetary considerations are important.
