Metso has updated its crushing and screening stations with two modularised variants that aim to deliver lower capital expenditure for mining and quarrying applications.
Metso’s two new crushing and screening stations include the FIT station and the Foresight station.
The FIT and Foresight stations are designed to deliver high levels of productivity and efficiency and cater for specific work environments. The structures are delivered in modules, which can be fitted into containers for easy transportation.
According to Metso, container delivery provides a 25 per cent reduction in delivery time, compared to other crushing and screening plants.
For a combination of speed and flexibility, Metso’s FIT stations are available in both recrushing station and jaw station variants, and include a steel structure that is designed to be broken down into containers for transportation to reduce the need for on-site welding.
As the extractive industry moves more towards remote operations, Metso’s Foresight stations are fitted with a selection of Metso’s smart automation technology to optimise crusher speeds and production, along with preventative maintenance. This includes technologies such as Metso Metrics, VisioRock, level sensors and crusher variable frequency drive.
Metso claims the smart automation technology included in the Foresight stations provides production levels of up to 6000 tonnes per hour.
“We have the experience in delivering crushing and screening plants with more than 100 installations globally,” Metso’s vice president of crushing systems Guillaume Lambert said.
“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 CAPEX (capital expenditure) reduction and shorter lead times.”
Metso has delivered more than 100 completed mining and screening plants and has an extensive portfolio of options for customers.
