Metso Outotec has, after reviewing the combined horizontal mill product offering from the Metso and Outotec companies, unveiled a “harmonised” Metso Outotec horizontal mill product line that, it says, represent the best of both legacy companies.
The Metso Outotec Premier™ horizontal grinding mills and Select™ horizontal grinding mills are designed for different customer segments and markets, and they have distinctly different features and benefits. In both lines, there are various mill solutions available for a wide range of applications.
The Premier horizontal grinding mills are customisable solutions built on state-of-the-art grinding mill technology, process expertise, and design capability, the company says. The Premier horizontal grinding mills are engineered to “excel and create vast possibilities” for customers and applications.
The Select horizontal grinding mills are a range of pre-engineered solutions that allow simple mill selection, simplified proposal preparation, and a streamlined order execution process. Select horizontal grinding mills feature a suite of technologies and conservative design parameters that meet or exceed operational goals, Metso Outotec claims. Select horizontal grinding mill sizes are available for applications up to 7.8 MW for both the SAG and ball mills. Rod mills are available up to Ø4.60 m x 6.10 m EGL.
“With the introduction of the Premier and Select horizontal grinding mills, Metso Outotec continues its over 100-year legacy in grinding,” Christoph Hoetzel, Head of Grinding business line at Metso Outotec, says. “Both lines have their own differences and benefits – but share the concepts and expertise that have made us an industry leader time and time again.”
He added: “As a combined company we have consistently led the way in grinding mill innovation. We’ve continuously pushed mill technology in the next size increment. Currently, we have the largest operating mills in the world, and we want to lean on that legacy in taking the next steps in mill size. In addition, it is important for us to continue to be a frontrunner in the development of a more robust suite of horizontal mill technologies, providing desirable options for customers looking for quick execution with reliable technology.”
The company says the Premier and Select mills come ready to be integrated with its mill reline equipment and full mining portfolio. The former includes the recently launched Mill Reline Machine (MRM), which has a capacity of 4,000 kg, as well as a broad selection of liner options, including the Megaliner™.
