A common problem for construction and demolition sites is what exactly to do with all of the leftover rubble. Instead of carting it all off to a landfill, crushing equipment can help to break down large chunks of rock and other debris into gravel or dust. This gravel can then be used in other construction projects so that it does not go to waste.
Variations of crushers have existed for centuries, dating all the way back to the 1600s. The basic principle of how they work involves applying pressure to the material to be crushed so that the molecules making up that material are forced to separate from each other, thus breaking the material into smaller chunks. When applied over and over again, that pressure can break down the rubble into dust or small rocks.
In order for crushers to work, the material applying the pressure needs to be stronger than the material to be crushed. In most modern heavy equipment for crushing rocks, the crushing jaws are made from cast iron or cast steel, resulting in jaws that are strong and durable.
