PRESS RELEASE: Based on Metso's industry leading crushing technology, the company said that the MKIII is the first high-speed primary gyratory crusher to deliver up to 30% higher capacity and 70% lower downtime in a comminution circuit.
Guillaume Lambert, vice president, mining crushers at Metso, said: "Our mining customers are facing increasing pressure to optimise capital expenses and improve the efficiency of their comminution circuit. With the new MKIII, we are addressing these challenges directly by offering peak performance and maximum throughput, while reducing the cost of primary stage infrastructure."
Designed for the most demanding primary crushing conditions and with the new SmartStation for optimised production, the Metso Superior MKIII brings a new level of cost-effectiveness and reliability to operations. Metso stated that the MKIII is the first high speed primary gyratory crusher on the market, surpassing traditional primary gyratory crushers by up to 30% in speed, thus having a 30% higher capacity. The rotable top shell ensures safe maintenance and reduces downtime by up to 70%. In addition, the MKIII can be paired with the Metso Metrics solution for predictive maintenance and online asset management.
Lambert concluded "The MKIII is the 3rd generation of our trusted primary crushing technology and it has been developed in close dialogue and cooperation with our customers. With the Superior MKIII, it is possible to use smaller machines to achieve the same highest-duty performance, making it the most capex-efficient technology on the market for the primary stage."
