hp5_1March 17, 2015 – Metso introduced a new cone crusher

simplicity and eco-efficiency in mind. Automatic settings, specialized
maintenance tools, reduced emissions and energy-efficient motors are just a few
of the improvements built into this new cone crusher.

The Nordberg HP5 follows the successful HP3, HP4 and
HP6 as the fourth model in an all-new range of high-performance cone crushers. With five per cent larger feed size versus the HP400
and higher capacity than the HP500 in tertiary applications, the HP5 is just
unbeatable in its
class. In
addition, a higher cavity density improves inter-particle crushing action for
end products with more consistent gradation and superior shape.

Less downtime, easy and safe to maintain

An advanced fastening system for the mantle and bowl
liner eliminates the need for backing material, and makes liner changes safer
and faster. Thicker liners result in more material to wear. The HP5 cone crusher
is also easy to disassemble, and all components are accessible from the top or
side. The bowl and head are easily and safely removed with no interference.

A new motor support allows the belts to be stretched
hydraulically, and lifting points have been redesigned to easily and safely lift
the HP5. Platform guards help to ensure operator safety and protection.

IC70C crusher automation ensures optimal performance

The HP5 features Metso’s innovative IC70C crusher
automation system. The IC70C is precisely designed to meet customer
expectations and crushing plant requirements for consistent production, safety
and easy control of crusher parameters.

Feed and discharge conveyors control, wear
compensation, auto setting adjustment and computer remote control are just a
few of the many benefits the IC70C system offers.
