Metso Outotec refines grinding mill selection options with Horizontal Mill Plant Units

Metso Outotec is launching what it says is yet another unique solution in its range of minerals processing plant islands: the Horizontal Mill Plant Units.

The pre-engineered plant units provide optimised grinding performance and simplify project management through easy circuit selection and flowsheet implementation, according to the company. At the same time, they ensure safe operability and maintainability thanks to state-of-the-art design.

The plant units feature Metso Outotec’s technologies including grinding mills, slurry pumps, hydrocyclones, conveying equipment, automation and service support. The scope of the unit can be tailored according to project requirements (brownfield or greenfield, open or closed circuit), the company said.

Fernando Marques, Global Product Manager at Metso Outotec, said: “Choosing the right solution for a grinding process can be a complex task. In addition to financial and technological aspects, miners must also evaluate executional and operational factors. Our modular Horizontal Mill Plant Units have been developed to make it easier for customers to select and execute the best solution for their grinding needs. Our pre-engineered modules provide a safe and optimised solution for many grinding applications.”

The units combine Metso Outotec horizontal mills, classification, pumping and automation technologies with a wide range of services and operation support. It takes sustainability and grinding performance to a new level by optimising the usage of energy, water, grinding media and consumables, Metso Outotec said. Other benefits include access to grinding and classification expertise to support flowsheet implementation; pre-engineered modules for simple and rapid execution; a process performance guarantee; easy process optimisation thanks to automation and digitalisation features; and sustainable technology with safe operability and maintainability.
