Material QUALITY of Impact Crushers vs. Jaw Crushers

Quality is based on each client’s specific needs. The hardness of the finished, crushed product, depends on the hardness of the material being fed into the crusher. The gradation will be dramatically affected by the type of crusher used. The jaw crusher will generate less dust, less powder and less fines. The jaw is a compaction crusher and squeezes material while crushing. The impact crusher is an explosion crusher that impacts and explodes material. The quality of the finished product does depend on one’s perspective of exactly what the target is. If one’s target is to produce fines, the impact crusher may be a better choice. If the target is a coarser blend of material, the jaw crusher may be best. This is a broad view of jaws vs. impacts and will vary based on numerous factors.

The MYTH that Only an Impactor should be used to Recycle Concrete and Asphalt

Jaw crusher
It’s a MYTH that only and Impact Crusher should be used to recycle concrete and asphalt. Years ago, this would be true. Old traditional Jaw crushers were not capable of producing a usable product in one pass. These antique jaws would take in large chunks and produce mostly 3-6″ minus. With the introduction of the REBEL CRUSHER JAW, and modern technology, we’re now capable of using a JAW to produce a beautiful product. REBEL CRUSHER JAWS are HITTING the California DOT spec processing concrete with rebar. This would be unheard of, years ago. When we combine the HUGE benefits of a JAW(low dust, perfect gradation, low emissions and less wear) while producing a near PERFECT product, it’s hard to beat the Jaw in most applications. Having said this, there is still a need for Impact Crushers. REBEL CRUSHER IMPACTS are chosen from time to time for specific applications that demand fines, powder or more unique specifications. For example, we’ve used impacts for gold processing, RAP asphalt production and pulverizing cinder blocks to produce material like “fish tank” gravel.

Not All Jaw Crushers are Created Equal!

NOT ALL JAW CRUSHERS are created EQUAL! Older traditional jaw crushers are normally used as primary crushers. They take in large chunks of material and reduce the material at an approximate 5 to 1 ratio. In other words, a 30″ input rock may be crushed down to 6″. Of course, the machine will produce material that is smaller but the jaw is known for knocking down big pieces so a secondary crusher can break them down further. A secondary crusher like a cone or impact crusher may take in the material that is around 6″ and reduce it to approximately 1″ minus. You’ll notice the reduction ratio is around 5 or 6 to 1. This is the quarry industry standard. The idea is that each machine does a little bit of work. This concept increases production and decreases wear on each machine. The downside is the HUGE capital investment in machinery. Rock quarries with thousands or millions of tons of material will justify large expensive systems. Many rock quarries have 10 plus years’ worth of reserves. It can all be broken down into the math of making the proper investment in machinery based on the needs of the business and customer demands.
Having said this, businesses that want to process material but are not opening a quarry are looking for an affordable solution. In addition, they’d prefer one machine that can DO IT ALL! Thus the reason the REBEL CRUSHER JAW was developed. Admittedly, it is not perfect. However, the REBEL Jaw has a huge feed opening and is capable of producing a product that looks like it went through multiple crushers. In other words, the REBEL CRUSHER JAW can take in huge chunks (approx 2 feet) and reduce them to approx. 1″ minus; all with one simple machine. Combine that with the REBEL’S MOBILITY, VERSATILITY, AND PRICE, and you have a machine that is easy to justify. We’ll be happy to discuss your specific needs via phone, text, or email. Please contact us to discuss and be sure the REBEL CRUSHER JAW is right for you.


Each type of crusher has an intended purpose. The type of crusher utilized depends on a variety of factors, including but not limited to the following: Type of material to be processed, input size of the material, gradation(% of fines for example), production, desired output size. It’s safe to say that jaw crushers have a broader range of applications. In other words, jaw crushers can be used in 90% of applications. Jaw crushers are typically utilized in large hard rock quarries as the primary crusher. Jaws are known for being rugged, their slow speed, and being forgiving. Jaw crushers normally require less maintenance. Impact crushers are normally applied to a more specific application. Impact crushers crush by impacting and exploding material. Therefore, they normally generate more dust, fines and have higher wear. They operate at higher speed and in comparison to jaw crushers, normally wear out quicker.

What is a Jaw Crusher?

What is a Jaw Crusher?

From sedimentary rock, granite, and basalts to concrete waste, glass, and other brittle materials, the overhead eccentric jaw crusher is the most widely utilized primary crushing system.

A jaw crusher is a compression machine. It consists of 2 corrugated jaw plates (dies), one fixed (stationary) and one that is movable.  The opening is wider at the top than the bottom.  Shot rock type material up to 90% of the jaw opening size is typically acceptable. With material like gravel, 80% size is encouraged. As material moves from the top of the chute to the bottom, it is crushed smaller and smaller until it finally passes through the opening at the bottom. You can change the size of the material by adjusting the final discharge setting of the jaw crusher.

Jaw crushers can be stand-alone, skid-mounted, or used on a variety of mobile and portable plants. They can be driven by an electric or hydraulic motor. They come in many sizes to fit a variety of applications.
