Crushers are devices with the intent to decrease the size of large objects. The common types of large objects are namely rocks, gravel and rock dust. This is done with the use of force to reduce the size of the objects into compacted and smaller volumes and thus, changing their forms. This can be accomplished by compacting the mass of the object. There are also other times where the crusher will forcefully break the object into series of smaller pieces and mass. This would allow the pieces of different compositions to be differentiated and separated. The earliest forms of crushers were the types of hand held stones where the weight of the stones together with muscle power can be used against the stone anvil. The common crushers these days are also typically the mortars and querns.

The mean of accomplishing the task of crushing object is the typical action a crusher would use force to do. It is essential to crush objects as it involves the transfer of force that would be increased by the mechanical advantages. This will cause the distribution of force along the body of the object. Additionally, it also involves the placement of an object in between two solid hard surfaces. One of which will act as the platform that provides the adequate amount of space and location that is appropriate for the object to be crushed. The other surface is usually located right above the object as well as the platform. It is then slowly lowered to exert the amount of force needed to crush the certain object. As the force progressively crushes the object, the upper surface continuously descents until the optimal degree is reached and where the reduction of size has been occurred and desired.

In our modern day and context, crushing has benefited our daily lives in many applications. These days, a small manual crusher around the house is often utilized to reduce the size of aluminium cans that are used to store soft drinks. This permits it to store the crushed cans until the sufficient quantity is collected for the transportation to the recycling facility. Manual crushers are usually inexpensive and does not takes up more room as compared to a standard countertop kitchen appliance yet brings about the convenience of crushing things at our finger tips.

On top of that, crushers can also be utilized with the intent to break up other objects such as rocks and other things. Crushers that are used for this sort of separation are often used in the scientific research areas. They make it possible to crush the large rock samples into smaller pieces that can be used for research observations and examinations purposes. They will then examine the content of the rock and structure of it in more specific details and interest. At the same time, the ore crusher is also used with the mining operations. They act as the form of mean to evaluate the content of the ore when it is being dug up from the particular dig site.

Similarly, there are also large crushers that are designed to conduct more complex jobs. These larger crushers are usually automated. They are usually employed for use at the automobile junk yards. Once all of the useful components have been removed, the remaining parts of the vehicle that are deemed useless will then be loaded onto the large crusher to carry out its job. It will then reduce the size of the entire vehicle into the fraction of its original size. The crushed vehicle will then be recycled into materials that can be reused for other useful products. Such a crusher can be intended for massive usage in their various specific industrial settings. These crushers are also generally very expensive machines.
