Tutt Bryant Equipment (TBE), the national distributor of Metso mobile plant and equipment, will launch a new primary crushing solution – in the form of the Metso Lokotrack LT130E mobile jaw crushing plant – in Australia this month.
The new Lokotrack’s heavy-duty design offers a reliable, high capacity solution, even with the hardest feed materials. For optimised energy efficiency for crushing operations, the mobile jaw crusher can run on an external electrical drive or, in locations where this is not possible, an integrated Caterpillar C15 engine and 500 kVA generator power package.
The LT130E incorporates a Nordberg C130 jaw crusher for large-scale quarrying applications. A deeper 1000mm (40”) feed opening can handle coarser feed material and greatly reduces the need for blasting. A small nip angle and kinematics ensure aggressive crushing along the whole length of the crushing cavity and for all rock conditions.
The tracked jaw crusher is easy to adapt to existing processes. You only need to adjust the height of the main conveyor hydraulically and start the process with an advanced Metso IC (intelligent crusher automation) control system. It connects the unit to the existing Lokotrack crushing and screening plants with a wireless Metso ICr remote monitoring system or an interlocking cable. All maintenance locations are easily accessible, making daily routines easier and safer.
The LT130E can be optimised to move smoothly between different sites. All the electric and hydraulic connections have quick couplings for easy disassembly. Optimised lifting points, along with user-friendly and safe hydraulic features, reduce downtime, while a new easy split feature makes portability and set-up much easier. For contracting purposes, the plant can be set up within a matter of hours.
The easy split advantage utilises hydraulic cylinders to lift the crusher and feeder above the chassis for transfer to a standard trailer (illustrated above). The chassis of the LT130E can be driven to the trailer by using a remote controller – just as with all Lokotrack mobile plants.
TBE is the largest multi-franchised equipment distributor in Australia, with more than 80 years of experience supplying a quality range of equipment and services to mining, quarrying, construction, recycling and other Australian industries.
