How To Choose The Correct Crusher Cables?

The selection of cables to connect the crusher needs to consider the following aspects:

Cable type

Choose the appropriate cable type according to the type of crusher and working needs. In general, crushers need to use cables with high flexibility, resistance to bending, resistance to stretching, oil resistance and high temperature resistance. Some special types of crushers may require the use of cables with special properties, such as explosion-proof cables, waterproof cables, cold-resistant cables, etc.

Conductor material

Conductor is an important part of the cable, and the quality of its material directly affects the performance and service life of the cable. In general, conductors with high conductivity, corrosion resistance, and fatigue resistance should be selected as conductor materials, such as copper, aluminum and other alloy conductors. For special environments, such as high temperature, low temperature, strong corrosion, etc., it is necessary to choose conductor materials with higher performance, such as titanium, silver, etc.

Insulation materials

Insulation materials are an important factor in ensuring safe and reliable operation of cables. In general, insulation materials should be materials with high insulation resistance, high temperature resistance, oil resistance, acid and alkali resistance, etc., such as polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, cross-linked polyethylene, etc. For special environments, it is necessary to use insulating materials with higher performance, such as fluoroplastics, silicone rubber, etc.

Sheath material

Sheath is an important structure that protects cables from external damage and corrosion. The sheath material should be made of materials with high elasticity, aging resistance, corrosion resistance and flame retardant properties, such as polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, cross-linked polyethylene, etc. At the same time, the sheath material should be able to withstand certain mechanical damage and tensile stress.

Cross-sectional area

The cross-sectional area of the cable directly affects the resistance, current carrying capacity and mechanical strength of the cable. In general, the appropriate cable cross-sectional area should be selected based on the power and operating current of the crusher. For high-power, high-current crushers, thicker cables need to be used; conversely, for low-power, low-current crushers, thinner cables can be used.


The length of the cable should be determined according to the installation location and usage requirements of the crusher. In general, you should try to choose a cable with a shorter length to reduce the resistance and power loss of the cable. If the cable needs to travel a long distance or bend a lot, a more flexible cable should be used.


When choosing a cable, you also need to consider its safety. Cables that comply with national safety standards should be selected, and cables should be installed and used correctly in accordance with the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer. At the same time, the safety status of cables should be checked regularly, and potential safety hazards should be discovered and dealt with in a timely manner.


To sum up, choosing the cable to connect the crusher requires comprehensive consideration of multiple factors such as cable type, conductor material, insulation material, sheath material, cross-sectional area, length and safety. When selecting, specific analysis and selection need to be made based on the actual situation to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the cable and the normal operation of the crusher.
