## Crusher Reduction Ratio - Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

As an example, suppose that it is required to make a reduction of 7:1 in two stages of crushers, one a standard gyratory and the other a fine-reduction crusher. We know from our examination of the crushing characteristics of these types that, for equal reduction ratios, the volume-reduction-ratio in the standard gyratory is considerably higher than it is in the fine reduction crusher.
