Aggregate Crushing and Screening Plant
The jaw crushers illustrated on figures 1 and 2 may be a component of a crushing and screening plant. The plant must
be set up on firm level ground and as near as possible to the source of material to be processed and positioned so the
conveyors may expel the processed aggregate to the desired location for stockpiling or hauling. Figure 3 illustrates a
typical crushing and screening plant layout where the jaw crusher may be utilized as a component. The positions of the
various components may be changed as required. For example, only the final discharge conveyor is absolutely
necessary to operation; the remaining three components indicated are illustrated only where the conveyors could be used
at the discretion of the operator and crew. The power source can be either a generator set that will meet the
requirements or powerline current. The direction of flow of the aggregate processed is also shown on figure 3.
