Metso Outotec says it is introducing its renewed crusher wears solution offering that provides the industry’s widest variety of wear parts and services to enable customers’ sustainable, predictable and profitable crushing.
The portfolio is categorised in three different product ranges – Metso Outotec O-Series, Expert Series and Max Series. The renewed crusher wears and services offering, from seasonal crushing to high-volume, and high-value operations, has been developed in response to customers’ demand for continuous improvements in crushing process performance.
Through the renewed offering, aggregates and mining customers can, together with Metso Outotec experts, easily compare the advantages and select just the right level of parts and services to reach the best crushing economy, it said.
Mika Saariaho, Senior Vice President, Crusher Wears business line, Metso Outotec, said: “Keeping our customers’ crushers running is our core expertise. Whatever is the scale of crushing, customers need crusher wear parts that suit specifically for their demand, they need services to keep their operation running, and they need expertise that helps them to develop the efficiency, profitability and sustainability in crushing. We are now very excited to introduce our renewed crusher wears offering, which will answer to our customers’ unique needs and can improve their crusher economy in a sustainable way.”
The crushing circuit is one of the biggest cost generators in mining and aggregate operations. It is also one of the most critical ones. The selection of the crusher chamber impacts the whole crushing process and its efficiency. Being able to select the optimal chamber requires insight into the process and the customer key performance indicators, Metso Outotec said. Therefore, an integral part of the offering is digital tools that enable the gathering and use of process data, such as Metso Outotec Metrics and simulation tools.
“We think that the optimal selection of the chamber is the key to a better crusher economy,” Saariaho continued. “It can only be achieved with a deep understanding and expertise of the process, and its requirements to the crusher wear material and technology.”
The O-Series provides affordable standard parts from stock – quickly and flexibly, according to the company. With the right, reliable parts selected through Chamber Selection Service, customers working days are more productive and the operating costs are lower, it said.
The Expert Series provides the broadest range of wear parts in the market with a wide, easy-to-order selection of materials and designs with the Chamber Expert Service enabling more efficient, optimised processes, helping customers get the most value out of their crusher, Metso Outotec said.
With the holistic approach of the Max Series, Metso Outotec can optimise with the Chamber Optimization Service each step of the customer’s process with custom parts to maximise performance, economy and sustainability, it said. The company says it has experience from 700-plus optimisation cases, with Chamber Optimization being part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive portfolio.
