The major goal for designing a crushing plant is to achieve the required production requirements. It can be operated at competitive cost and complies with today’s tough environmental regulations.

Crushing plant can be built at a reasonable price despite the rising costs of equipment, energy and construction labor.

There are three main steps in designing a good crushing plant. They are:

  1. Process Design
  2. Equipment Selection
  3. Layout

Process design and equipment selection are described by production requirements and design parameters. But the layout can reflect the preferences, input and operational experience of a number of parties. These can include the safety personnel, owner’s engineering staff, equipment manufacturers, operations and maintenance personnel, and the engineering consultant.

Ideally, the consultant combines his knowledge and experience with an understanding of all parties’ needs, to provide a balanced, workable, safe and economic plant design.

Design Parameters

The major design parameters that drive crushing plant selection and configuration include:

Production requirements

  • Capital cost
  • Ore characteristics
  • Safety and environment
  • Project location
  • Life of mine/expansion plans
  • Operational considerations
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Climatic conditions


Crushing Plants usually transforms into a very compact package. No heavy cranes are required for plant set up.

Hydraulically operated fine adjustable support legs enable crushing plant to be ready for action only some hours after arriving on site. A swift undercarriage system involved in the plant makes it also very easily movable from site to site. A total weight is only 30 tons makes it easy to transport in most roads and highways.

It further contains control system process and it ensures easy and safe use of the crushing plant. The best solution facilitates the steering of the feeder, crusher and conveyors using the one single touch screen.   

New design features such as flywheel composite covers, together with large service platforms and outstanding convenience make daily operations secure and easy.


  • simple to transport due to compact dimensions
  • Rapid setup time due to hydraulic options
  • Fully electric driven. Possibility to use electrical network
  • No foundations needed
  • Various feeding possibilities
