Metso debut new portable crusher for manufactured sand

Metso has debuted its Nordwheeler portable crusher for manufactured sand producers as demand grows for sustainable products.  

The new NW8HRC is the first portable HRC 8™ crushers for manufactured sand which offers quarry operators sustainability, process flexibility and higher capacity production. 

“We are proud to be the first global aggregates equipment manufacturer to launch a portable high pressure grinding roll (HPGR) crusher for sand manufacturing.  

“(It) is one of the most efficient crushers for producing manufactured sand, offering a more sustainable solution since manufactured sand can be used to replace the scarce natural sand in concrete production,” Senior Vice President, Metso products of the Aggregates business area Renaud Lapointe said.  

Nordwheeler portable plants are powered by electricity, and they can be set up without heavy concrete foundations.  

In many countries, the ability to relocate the entire plant makes it easier to get crushing permits, which makes the plants a desirable choice for one—to two-year periodical crushing projects, such as those for the construction of dams, airports, and roads.    

In addition to NW8HRC, Nordwheeler NW Rapid range is expanding with five new portable crushers. The models are designed on the proven Nordberg® and Barmac crusher technologies for effective secondary and tertiary crushing.  

The new models are NW300GP, NW300HP, NW330GP, NW7150 and NW9100. All the new portable crushers are designed to fit in standard transportation dimensions, making towing them to a new site easier than ever. At the site they are quick to set up with on-board equipment and hydraulic options.   

“Our new models feature a crusher without an integrated screen on the same chassis, which increases the flexibility of plant design and makes it easier for aggregate producers to adapt to changing end-product requirements,” said Jarno Pohja, director of portable solutions in the aggregates business area at Metso. 

“The Nordwheeler portable plants also feature IC™ process control system. Intelligent automation optimises crushing efficiency and offers the ability to control the machines remotely. Automatic process control increases productivity, improves quality, and adds consistency to the end product.”
