The company stated that automatic settings, specialised 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. The company said that its design leverages its 100+ years of crusher know-how and experience with more than 9,000 HP cone crushers in operation worldwide, resulting in a crusher that delivers an excellent combination of efficient crushing action, optimal feed size, high performance and the lowest cost per tonne.
With 5% larger feed size versus the HP400 and higher capacity than the HP500 in tertiary applications, the HP5 is excellent in its class. In addition, a higher cavity density improves inter-particle crushing action for end products with more consistent gradation and superior shape.
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.
The HP5 features Metso's 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.
