A developing nation like Nigeria, with huge deposit of different solid minerals and rocks, needs to explore the processing of these solid minerals to reduce dependence on petroleum. The old ways of stone crushing by hand is still being practiced in several villages and towns in Nigeria. Design and production of an indigenous roll crusher from locally available materials for low hardness rocks was carried out in this work. The throughput capacity of the machine was 1.43tonnes/hour. The theoretical efficiency of the double roll crusher when crushing limestone was 60% while that of kaolin was 80%.
