Oct.
25, 2011, Brisbane, Australia – Metso and the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, have
finalized a three-year agreement to carry out joint research and performance
evaluations of the VERTIMILL® grinding mill developed by Metso.

The project is aimed at improving the
effectiveness of the company’s grinding solutions and helps the university’s
Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) enhance its already
significant knowledge base in stirred milling.

Metso
and JKMRC will share their expertise and methodology, and further validate
field performance in terms of energy efficiency in fine- and coarse-grinding
applications. According to Kenneth Brame, senior vice-president, Comminution,
Mining and Construction Technology at Metso, the research process “requires a
broad mix of competencies and dedicated resources, so university collaboration
is essential to quickly gain and sustain momentum.”
