:: New Nordberg LT Range Adds New Dimension
by Heikki Harri
Metso Minerals launches a new range of track-mounted crushing plants, adding a further dimension to productivity. Four models have so far been equipped with a single-deck screen. The result is that one and the same unit can produce two different products, one of which is calibrated.
Conventional track-mounted plants are equipped with a discharge conveyor producing one fraction.
The four models are LT95S, LT105S and LT1213S for contract crushing and the larger LT110S for bigger contract crushing operations and also for quarrying. The LT1213S is equipped with an impact crusher, the others with a jaw crusher.
Significant new benefits
"As far as we know, Metso Minerals is the only supplier that manufactures this type of track-mounted crushing plants equipped with jaw crushers.
We have been very pleased with customer response, since well over a hundred such S Series plants have been sold since their introduction three years ago," comments Mr Jouni Hulttinen, product manager for the contractor line of LT plants.
The new range offers significant customer benefits:
The new range has already proved highly popular. Well over 100 units have been sold to date with sales covering the whole world.
Two machines in one
To demonstrate the benefits of the range, we describe here the LT110S in more detail:
Since there are no limitations on compressive strength, it can crush the toughest rock. The typical capacity range is from 200 to 400 t/h.
"The prototype was ready in 2002 and so far some 10 units have been sold to Norway, Sweden and Spain," Mr Jorma Kempas, product manager, summarizes.
