About the new Metso NW Series

The revolutionary Metso NW Series crushing and screening plant allows customers to improve profitability at even the most challenging crushing sites and to move to the next site more easily than ever.

The combination of the Metso NW106(TM) primary jaw crushing plant and the NW220GPD(TM) secondary cone crushing plant with a large dual-slope screen has been optimized to be relocated regularly. Adequate features, like the hydraulically fine-adjustable support legs, hopper walls and screen lifting, will further facilitate fast installation and dismantling for frequent relocations. The associated conveyor in the rapid range has also been designed for easy and quick set up. The complete portable plant is very easy and safe to operate and maintain on site.

The Metso NW Series is the first and only wheel-mounted crushing plant on the market that fits compactly into standard 40 ft (12 m) containers so that it can be shipped quickly and cost efficiently overseas or by railway transportation.  Therefore, in addition to helping customers achieve a rapid plant set up as well as easy and safe operations and maintenance on site, this innovative solution helps customers reduce the delivery time and the cost associated with ocean freight.
