Therefore, many clients have invested in the crushers to crush the limestone to give full play to its industrial use and commercial value. While the most important thing is to select the suitable crushers according to limestone materials. Therefore, it is necessary for you to know some details about the limestone materials itself first.

Characteristics of Limestone Affecting The Selection of Crusher

Limestone is a common sedimentary rock primarily composed of calcium carbonate. It is widely distributed around the world. Its diverse applications range from building materials to metallurgical ore refining, making it an indispensable and important mineral.

Varieties of Limestone Materials

Its physical properties have a direct and important impact on the selection of limestone crusher for sale. The following are guidance on crusher choices.

Hardness and Wear Resistance:

Limestone has a relatively low hardness, typically ranging between 3 and 4 on the Mohs hardness scale. The harder limestone may require more powerful crushers, such as jaw crushers, to handle higher compressive strength. However, for limestone with lower hardness but good wear resistance, impact crushers may be more suitable.

Particle Size and Distribution:

The particle size and distribution of limestone influence the selection of different types of crushers. Coarse-grained limestone is suitable for jaw crushers, while powdery or fine-grained limestone may be more suitable for impact crushers.

Porosity and Density:

The porosity and density of limestone affect its flowability and processing capacity in crushers. Limestone with high porosity may be more prone to compressive crushing and is suitable for use with compression crushers. Dense limestone, such as high-density sulfurized limestone, may require more powerful equipment, such as hammer crushers.

In general, the choice of a crusher should consider the factors mentioned above to guarantee optimal crushing outcomes and production efficiency. Consequently, practical applications may require employing various mobile limestone crusher types, limestone grinding machine for fine particle size or a combination of multiple stone crushers, contingent on the specific circumstances. So, let’s explore a few combinations of different crushers that are often used by customers.

Multiple Limestone Crushers Combined for Better Fine Particle Size

As we all know, it is not practical to pass large limestone through the crusher to reach the required particle size at one time. Thus, it needs the secondary crushing stages. Here are two kinds of limestone processing equipment combinations for reference. And I also would show you the customized crushing solutions designed by AIMIX engineers for clients.

Jaw Limestone Equipment + Cone Limestone Crusher Machine

Working Principles:

  • Jaw crusher: As the initial crushing equipment, the jaw crusher is suitable for the primary crushing stage. The advantage of the jaw crusher is its strong compression resistance, which is suitable for medium hardness limestone.

  • Cone crusher: As a further crushing step, cone crushers are often used in the mid-stage crushing stage. It produces more uniform finished particles and helps adjust particle shape. This is important for applications that require finer particles or have special requirements on particle shape.
    Cone Limestone Crushers

Combination Based on the Following Considerations:

  • Adaptability: The structures and principles of jaw crushers and cone crushers are complementary and can adapt to limestone of different particle sizes and hardness.
  • Efficiency: Jaw crushers are able to efficiently break large pieces of limestone into preliminary particles, while cone crushers further improve crushing efficiency and particle uniformity.
  • Finished product control: Cone crushers help control the shape and size of finished particles to ensure specific production and application requirements are met.

Applicable scene:

It is suitable for production scenarios that require precise control of particle size and shape, such as high-quality concrete, railway ballast track slabs, road infrastructure, etc.

Jaw Limestone Equipment + Impact Crusher

Jaw Limestone Equipment + Impact Crusher for Limestone Crushing

Combination Advantages:

The limestone mining equipment combination takes advantage of the jaw crushers and impact crushers to achieve a multi-stage crushing process, helping to improve production efficiency and product quality.

The jaw crusher is responsible for primary crushing, quickly processing large raw limestone blocks into smaller particles.

The impact crusher further acts on the primary crushed particles to produce polygonal shapes to meet production needs with specific shape requirements.


Suitable for construction, concrete production and other fields that require polygonal shaped particles.

Why Choose The Jaw Crusher (APJ-110V)+ Impact Crusher (APF-1620H) in The Limestone Crushing Process?

  • Jaw Crusher (APJ-110V): Serving as the primary crushing equipment, the jaw crusher boasts a high crushing ratio, consistent finished product size, reliable equipment performance, and a low failure rate. To fulfill the primary crushing requirements, we’ve set a 100mm gap for the grizzly bars, directing the remaining material beneath them for subsequent secondary crushing.
  • Impact Crusher (APF-1620H): This equipment is adept at processing materials with medium to lower hardness levels. We carefully selected a suitable model by considering the discharge curve of the jaw crusher and the necessary capacity, ensuring it can effectively address the crushing demands for various material specifications.

Main differences Between the Jaw + Cone Crusher and Jaw + Impact Crusher Combinations

  • Shape Adjustment:

    Jaw crusher + cone crusher combination focuses primarily on shape and size adjustment, providing multi-stage refinement. While, the jaw crusher + impact crusher combination emphasizes the dual functions of primary crushing and shape adjustment.

  • Applicable Situations:

    For the secondary stages, cone crushers are suitable for scenarios that have strict requirements on particle shape and size, while impact crushers are more suitable for situations where polygonal particles need to be produced.
