Multinational crushing and screening manufacturer Metso has been renowned for many years for its innovations in mobile crushing and screening solutions. Now, in conjunction with its local distributor, it is launching a new suite of mobile solutions to the Australian market.
Metso has expanded its mobile crushing and screening solutions offering with an extensive new portfolio of equipment. The new Metso Nordtrack range consists of 19 machines designed to meet the requirements of aggregates producers and contractors to the construction industry. With standard configurations and a global sales and support network, Nordtrack machines are suitable for contractors and quarries that need to meet tight project timelines and guarantee capacity quickly.
Metso’s Australian vice president of aggregates Shaun Fanning says the Nordtrack range has been purpose-designed for asphalt recycling, concrete demolition, aggregate production and for screening of organic materials such as topsoil. “While we have traditionally had a strong performance in hard rock applications, the Nordtrack range caters for a wider scope of work,” Fanning explained. “It is ideal for companies and contractors who need the right combination of productivity, availability and dependability at an affordable price point.”
The new range consists of 19 mobile units, including jaw crushers, impact crushers, screens and conveyors. According to Fanning, Australian customers are fully supported by Metso’s Australian distributor Tutt Bryant Equipment, whose representatives are trained on the capabilities of each machine and have direct access to Metso’s global technical support network.
“It is vital that our customers are fully supported throughout their ownership journey. The team at Tutt Bryant are well equipped to support Nordtrack, backed by the knowledge and expertise of Metso’s global product and service design centres,” he said.
Business development manager for Tutt Bryant Equipment Paul Doran said Nordtrack adds new capabilities to Metso’s mobile equipment offering. “The new range fills a few product gaps and provides additional options for our customers,” he said. “This, along with their price point and simple operation will appeal to a large proportion of Aussie end users. We look forward to seeing these robustly constructed and reliable machines helping our customers both in Australia and offshore.”
Doran said some of the key additions include:
• The J127 mobile jaw crusher, which is built to deliver high productivity after deployment in the field. The wide crusher feed opening and the two-stage feeder enable high throughput in both quarrying and recycling operations.
• The I908S mobile horizontal shaft impact (HSI) crusher, which provides superior performance in a very compact size. Equipped with a HSI crushing unit, a hanging screen module with easy to use attachment system, and a 180-degree radial conveyor, the I908S is flexible enough for most types of jobs.
• The S2.11 mobile scalping screen, which is designed to process large volumes of feed material with precision. It has the flexibility to screen a wide variety of feed materials in different recycling, demolition and aggregate applications.
• The S4.12 mobile screen, which is equipped with three decks for effective high volume screening. The standard remote controller can be upgraded with additional functionality, enabling operators to control the feeder parameters at a safe distance from the machine.
The mobile Nordtrack range is now available to the Australian market through Tutt Bryant Equipment. •
