Metso is introducing two new modular “game-changing solutions” for mining crushing and screening plants that, it says, will provide significant resource and time savings for mines.
The flexible FIT™ stations and the smart Foresight™ stations offer a wide range of flexible solutions with ease of maintenance and time savings for any operation, according to the company.
Guillaume Lambert, Vice President, Crushing Systems at Metso, said: “We have the experience in delivering crushing and screening plants with over one hundred installations globally. We also understand the needs of customers today in the evolving industry. That is why we are using our legacy and expertise to introduce these modularised crushing stations that focus on capital expenditure reduction and shorter lead times.”
The FIT stations are designed with a focus on speed and flexibility. There are two stations to select from – Recrushing station and Jaw station. The steel structures are supplied in modules that fit easily into containers for transportation, according to the company, which also reduces on-site welding usually required and allows for quicker start-up. Container delivery reduces delivery time by up to 25% compared with similar crushing and screening plants, while erection time is also reduced by up to 15%.
The Foresight stations are equipped with smart automation technology including Metso Metrics™, VisioRock™, level sensors and crusher variable frequency drive. These features enable optimised crusher speeds, preventative maintenance and optimised production levels up to 6,000 t/h, the company says. The MP cone crusher station features a scalping MF™ screen and an MP™ Series cone crusher.
Both stations come with proven Metso equipment and technology to deliver maximum productivity for even the most demanding mining applications, the company said.
