  • Patent number: 7478771
    Abstract: Crushed rock is produced by passing rocks through an early stage rock crusher. Crushed rocks that exit the early stage rock crusher are passed across a sizing device. Rocks failing to pass completely through the sizing device are recrushed in a later-stage rock crusher and then passed downwardly through a high-volume air stream which flows within the crusher transversely through the downwardly traveling crushed rocks and extracts fines therefrom prior to exiting of the crushed rocks from the crusher. The fines extracted by the air stream are at least 50% minus 50-mesh.
