The new crusher has improvements in its kinematics, a raised pivot point and a power increase, leading to a 15% increase in capacity, the Finnish company said.
Typical installation time is reduced by half as it comes pre-assembled, pre-wired and with a package that includes rubber-pad mounted subframe and guards. A tramp also allows passage of tramp iron minimizing production stoppages and protecting internal components.
"HP cone crushers have satisfied many aggregates and mining customers around the world. With the HP900 we go straight to the point, with increased performance and reduced Capex", says Jim Bathie, vice president of Mining Crushers at Metso.
The HP900 is an upgrade to the HP800 cone crusher which has more than 175 installations worldwide. About 80% of the parts are compatible.
