Metso Outotec has added to its mobile and modular stationary crushing systems capabilities with a new sizer crusher option using Komatsu technology.
The option for the Lokotrack product line is ideal for soft ore and aggregate applications.
All five models, which range from 500 tonnes per hour to 4,500 tonnes per hour, feature Komatsu sizer technology, according to the company.
Metso Outotec’s recently launched modular FIT crushing stations are also available with sizer configurations, the company confirmed.
“Both the mobile and modular solutions were engineered in collaboration with Komatsu,” it added.
Julius Mäkelä, vice president of mid-size and mobile crushers at Metso Outotec, pointed out that some new concentration technologies and stricter environmental outlines allow economically viability for processing such deposits and stocks that were not possible to handle profitably earlier.
“However, the characteristics of soft ores like low abrasiveness and high moisture content require a different equipment configuration than when crushing hard ore,” Mäkelä said.
“To provide leading solutions for our customers processing soft ore, we’re now combining our expertise in mobile and semi-mobile crushing with Komatsu’s sizing knowhow.”
The first Lokotrack sizer plant is already in operation in Southeast Asia.
