Bharule, Ajay (2009) Computer Aided Design and Analysis of Swing Jaw Plate of Jaw Crusher. MTech thesis.
Traditionally, stiffness of swing plates has not been varied with changes in rock strength. Rock strength has only been of interest because of the need to know the maximum force exerted by the toggle for energy considerations. Thus a swing plate, stiff enough to crush taconite with an unconfined compressive strength (q_u) of up to 308 MPa, may be overdesigned (and, most importantly, overweight) for crushing a softer fragmental limestone, amphibolites. Design of lighter weight jaw crushers will require a more precise accounting of the stresses and deflections in the crushing plates than is available with traditional techniques.
Efforts to decrease energy consumed in crushing have lead to consideration of decreasing the weight of the swing plate of jaw crushers for easily crushed material. In the present work the design of the swing jaw plate using point-load deformation failure (PDF) relationships along with interactive failure of rock particles as a model for such a weight reduction. The design of the corrugated swing jaw plate is carried out by using CAD i.e. jaw crusher plate has been solid modeled by using CatiaV5R15. The calculated dimensions are validated with the drawing of reputed manufacturers. Finite Element Analysis of jaw plates are carried out by using ALGOR V19 software. Computerization of the theoretical design calculations of jaw plates of the jaw crusher has been carried out. The computerized program facilitates for quick design of the plates of the jaw crusher.
The different comparisons of corrugated swing jaw plates behavior, calculated with the traditional and the new FEA failure models with stiffeners, shows that some 10-25% savings in plate weight may be possible.
