Outstanding advantages and characteristics

  • Eccentric shaft: The eccentric shaft has higher strength and greater passing capacity after being treated by heating and forging; it is equipped with super large bearings at both ends, with strong bearing capacity and durability.
  • Flywheel: It can effectively balance the unbalanced force generated by the eccentric operation; it also closely cooperates with the counterweight to reduce the vibration level and make the operation more stable and reliable.
  • Frame: E-type frame structure reasonably distributes the reinforcing ribs, strengthening the intensity and stability of the machine with low vibration and noise; side bolt fixing system is convenient and quick to control.
  • Jaw plate: Optimized curve shape design increases productivity and reduces abrasion of the jaw plate; manganese steel alloy increases the thickness of the machine which becomes more sturdy and durable, and the plates are symmetrical at two ends which can be adjusted for secondary use.
  • Bearing seat: Optimized structure is more stable when operating, reducing damage to bearings due to deformation; special placement way effectively eliminates crushing force.
  • Adjustment device: The jaw crusher is equipped with a hydraulic cylinder or a screw, thus it is convenient to adjust the discharge port.
  • Lubrication system: The centralized lubrication system adopts a universal lubrication joint which is efficient to lubricate; the labyrinth seal can effectively prevent dust.
  • Crushing chamber type: Optimized design, accurate eccentricity calculation and reasonable dynamic trajectory design increase the yield by 30%-50%.

CJ series jaw crusher has advantages of small space, larger crushing ratio and more stable operation. It has more advantages in transportation, installation and maintenance and is particularly suitable for fixed crushing lines and mobile crushing plants.

Performance and characteristics

  • Non-welded detachable frame: The detachable structure is convenient for transportation and installation, especially for underground installation and transportation;
  • Optimized motion parameters: Its bearing specifications are increased and the service life is extended; the four bearing specifications of the moving jaw and the frame are the same, reducing the uses of spare parts;
  • Wedge-type adjustment of discharge port: The wedge is used to adjust the discharge port, which greatly reduces the working intensity and downtime. The user can select the hydraulic adjustment device as needed;
  • Steel plate bracket: The bracket is made of high-strength steel plate material. When the crusher is overloaded, it will be bent and deformed to protect the major parts from damage. Compared with traditional cast iron brackets, it is light and easy to replace;
  • The overall steel frame base: The installation is easier and the space is saved. The whole machine is placed on the base of the steel frame, and the main engine and the base are connected by the shock pad, which has little influence on the foundation.

4. Mobile jaw crusher

The mobile crusher is also called the mobile crushing station, including tyre mobile crushing station and crawler mobile crushing station, which is a kind of rock crushing equipment newly developed by our company.

Unlike the traditional jaw crusher, this new type mobile crusher can be easily and flexibly moved to the crushing site, which eliminates the obstacles caused by the crushing sites and the conditions.

Therefore, it is widely applied in coal mining plants, infrastructure, road construction, and urban construction waste recycling which have more requirements on the mobility of the crushing sites.

Mobile jaw crusher: High mobility determines that it is suitable for frequent conversion of crushing sites (like road construction, urban construction waste disposal, etc). Thus, its price is higher than other kinds of jaw crushers.


There are so many types and sizes of jaw crusher, so the selections and prices of the jaw crushers are estimated based on the actual uses of the customers. However, as a direct selling manufacturer, the price of the jaw crusher given by FTM is always a factory price with excellent value.
