Buckle up your belts, it might get a little rocky! Did you know a crusher will reduce rubble to make rocks of a number of useful sizes? The large rocks go in the crusher and when they come out they are much smaller and of different sizes. Cool isn't it ? They are many types of crushers. Gyratory crushers and cone crushers are popular. Cone and gyratory crushers are machines that break up the ore by means of a rotating cone.
