Mobile Crusher VS Portable Crusher Plant

There are mainly two types of mobile crushing stations: tire and crawler. The design concept eliminates the obstacles to the crushing operation caused by the crushing site, environment, complicated basic configuration and complicated logistics. Therefore, it is welcomed by more and more users. This article starts from the similarities and differences between the two mobile crushing stations, and analyzes their characteristics and their respective advantages for everyone.

Similarity analysis

Both are mobile crushing stations, and the tire and track types have common characteristics, such as:

1. Flexible and save time

The mobile crusher can directly reach the mining site and is not affected by site changes. It can start operation after completing the station adjustment in a short time. Due to the small size of the equipment, it is particularly suitable for narrow places in the crushing site. At the same time, it eliminates the tedious steel frame structure and foundation construction during crushing, saving a lot of time.

2.Integrated unit

The integrated unit equipment installation form eliminates the complex site infrastructure installation operations of split components, reduces the consumption of materials and man-hours, and is a production line that integrates process equipment such as receiving, crushing, and conveying. The reasonable and compact space layout of the unit improves the flexibility of the station.

3. Reduce material transportation costs

The mobile crushing station can process the material on site without having to move the material off the site for processing, which greatly reduces the transportation cost of the material.

4. Flexible combination and complete functions

Equipped with corresponding equipment according to the actual production requirements of the user, various combinations can be formed, which can be formed into a “first crushing and then sieving” process, or a “first screening and then crushing” process. It can also be combined into a coarse crushing, medium crushing and fine crushing three-stage crushing and screening system. It can also run independently and has great flexibility.

Differentiated comparison

In addition to the above common characteristics, the two also have their own unique advantages. We compare them from the following aspects:


A tire-type mobile crushing station cannot actually be called a mobile crusher, because its transitional movements rely on semi-trailer heads for traction, so it is not as mobile as a crawler-type mobile crushing station driven by itself.

2.Applicable venue

Because the tire mobile crushing station uses on-board traction, it is more suitable for crushing various sand and gravel materials in some construction waste treatment, earth and stone engineering, urban infrastructure and road construction, construction and other industries.

The tracked mobile crusher chassis adopts a tracked full rigid ship structure, with high strength, low ground pressure, good passability, good adaptability to mountainous and wetlands, and can even achieve climbing operations, so it is mostly used in some mining, Open-pit coal mining and other harsh operating environments.

3. Work efficiency

When the tire mobile crushing station works, the hydraulic outriggers under the frame are fixed, so the stability of the entire station is increased. Stability is the basis of the mobile crushing station operation. Good stability enables the entire station to be equipped with large The crusher equipment, that is to say, the tire mobile crushing station can perform the crushing operation of large materials, and the work efficiency is extremely high.

The stability of crawler mobile crushing stations is relatively weak, which in turn results in high crushing capacity without the efficiency of mobile crushing stations.

4. Equipment performance

The tire mobile crushing station has a short wheelbase, a small turning radius, and does not damage the road surface. It can be flexibly driven on ordinary highways and operating areas.

Tracked mobile crushing station uses crawler walking to achieve in-situ steering. The standard configuration, through wireless remote control, makes it easy to drive the crusher to a trailer and transport it to the work site.

5. Finished product effect

At present, the wheeled mobile crushing station is used for the crushing treatment of construction waste, and the recycled aggregate produced by it has a good shape and is conducive to recycling. The semi-open discharge system is suitable for crushing construction waste containing a small amount of steel bars. The output is fine, the crushing is small, and the particles are well formed. It is especially suitable for the production of environmentally friendly bricks.

In summary, both the tire-type and crawler-type mobile crushing stations have their own characteristics, and they should be selected according to the user’s production requirements. With people’s pursuit of efficiency and convenience, mobile crushing stations will be more widely used in various industries, understand the characteristics of these two types of mobile crushing stations, and lay the foundation for the current or future equipment selection.
