Metso Outotec added to its mobile and modular stationary crushing solutions range with a sizer option designed for soft ore and aggregate applications. The new Lokotrack additions are equipped with Komatsu’s sizer technology and are available in five models ranging from 500 to 4500 tons per hour.
Metso Outotec’s recently launched modular FIT crushing stations are also available with sizer configurations. Both the mobile and modular solutions were engineered in collaboration with Komatsu.
“New concentration technologies and strict environmental norms make it economically viable to process such deposits and stocks that were not possible to handle profitably earlier,” says Julius Mäkelä, vice president mid-size and mobile crushers at Metso Outotec. “However, the characteristics of soft ores like low abrasiveness and high moisture content require a different equipment configuration than when crushing hard ore. 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,”
“Komatsu is excited about the opportunity to partner with Metso Outotec to provide soft ore crushing solutions. Komatsu’s Joy sizers are well known in the industry and they’ve proven their efficiency and reliability in various applications. The combination of Metso Outotec’s Lokotrack and FIT Station with our sizers provide a unique and superior solution for soft ore and rock crushing,” says John McCarthy, sizer product manager at Komatsu.
