Metso assists with crushing, screening upgrade

To enable this Monier has involved Metso in providing the solution. The upgrade will include the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of a Metso crushing and screening system. 
The contract is worth $15 million to Metso but for Monier it is about meeting the standards and specifications of its construction customers.
“We chose Metso as the contractors for the project based on their demonstrated ability to deliver world class crushing and screening installations,? said Brian Condon, the CEO of Monier.
Metso Crusher Systems’ solution will allow multiple standard products to be produced simultaneously while providing flexibility for Monier to produce “made to order” products with no impact on production rates or quality.

The Nebiri Quarry upgrade will be designed for a minimum operating life of 20 years. This will ensure that Monier has the capability and capacity to meet demand for quarry materials well into the future. 
According to Condon, the installation of the crushing and screening system is the final stage of a project that had been underway for two years. 
“It would be an obvious waste of money if the upstream and downstream processes did not have the capacity to support the new installation,? he said. “In preparation for the completion of the new crushing and screening system, Monier has made significant investment in mobile plant and equipment to ensure there are no bottlenecks to restrict production capacity once the new system is installed.?
Due for completion in 2014, the crushing and screening system is targeted to produce 350 tonnes per hour of concrete and asphalt aggregates as well as road base materials. 
The total project delivery comprises a primary C125 jaw crusher, a secondary NP 1213 impact crusher, a HP 200 cone crusher for the tertiary stage and a Barmac B6150 vertical shaft impactor for the final stage of crushing and shaping. 
The crushing and screening system also includes several high efficiency TS and CVB screens, a scalper and conveyors. 
Metso will supply screening media and dust sealing systems for the screens. 
Monier Limited is one of Papua New Guinea’s largest construction materials and building products manufacturers, employing more than 350 people. 
The Nebiri Quarry supplies more than one million tonnes of quarry materials per year.
