With its flexibility and versatility, impact crushers (also known as impactors) can have a positive impact on both your crushing contract and your bottom line. As any aggregate equipment expert knows, a successful contract comes from having the right equipment for the job. By acting as both a primary and secondary crusher, impact crushers have a unique cost-saving advantage over jaw crushers and cone crushers. Different contracts are better suited to different rock crushers, but for the following applications, impact crushers are one of the best options on the market.

Crushing Contracts with Limited Space

If space is at a premium, impactors are a great crushing solution to pursue. Rather than the massive footprint of having both a primary and secondary crusher in your crushing circuit, the all-in-one nature of an impact crusher allows you to easily half that footprint by acting as both. That means lower costs for you from only needing a single crusher and more space for the rest of your aggregate equipment. Impactors also thrive in portable plants as they require 1-3 fewer trailers than portable plants that use other types of rock crushers. Fewer trailers in a portable plant means more space and lower costs for you!

Contracts That Require Movement from Site-To-Site

The benefit of impactors requiring a smaller amount of real estate also pays off for contracts that require crushers to be moved to various locations. If your contract features multiple sites or perhaps your company is looking to reduce costs across multiple contracts, impact crushers are far more portable than other crushers on the market. Portable plants with impact crushers, such as the SPI 5000, are also a great way to make your crushers more mobile for contracts that require a commute.

When a High-Quality End Product Is Needed

Impactors deliver a high-quality, cubical, salable end product that makes them desirable for producing aggregates for roads and construction purposes, as well as a variety of other industrial uses. Impact crushers can also handle a variety of materials from hard and soft rocks to glass and asphalt which can make them a great option for a wide range of purposes.
