After spending a lot of money on a crusher, you don’t want to keep spending more money on frequent parts replacements. Parts aren’t cheap and having to buy more parts than normal means you’re cutting into your bottom line. While parts will always have to be replaced eventually, following a few simple tips will help reduce you costs in the long term and keep your equipment up and running.

1. Conduct frequent inspections.

When you take a couple minutes each day or week to look over the crusher, belts, feeder and screens, you can notice issues starting to build up before they become a real problem and require parts and downtime to fix. For example, if you notice blowbars are wearing on one side faster, you can work to feed material on the opposing side, allowing the bar to last longer before reaching the point where it must be flipped or replaced. You may also look to adjust settings so less material is returning to be crushed, thus reducing wear on one side of the bar.

2. Watch material feed mix and size

Crushers, no matter the type, can only handle feed of a certain size. Constantly approaching the maximum feed size for the crusher will put undue stress on the crusher, causing premature failure of the parts and may also cause drive issues. You should also ensure what you are feeding can be crushed. While some crushers can hand a reasonable amount of steel, others cannot. And even if a crusher can handle some steel like rebar, it does not mean you should abuse its capabilities and expect a crusher to always handle things like large steel plate, compressed gas cylinders, or floor safes. You may get lucky and have no issues, or you may spend a few hours or days down while replacing parts.

3. Using OEM parts

There is a saying, “you get what you pay for.” And it holds true for crushers too. You bought a high-quality crusher and spent a lot of money on it. Using OEM parts means you are using the parts designed for that unit. Parts pirates may be able to sell you a similar part for a couple dollars less than the manufacturer, but did that pirate take the time to test their designs in the field, inspect the foundries and conduct analysis on their parts to ensure they meet exacting engineering specifications? It””s unlikely.  In the long run, using OEM parts might cost a few dollars more, but you can usually expect better performance from OEM parts, meaning you””ll more than make up for the few extra dollars spent versus the pirated parts.
