Optimizing minerals processes with lower operating costs: Metso solutions presented at PERUMIN 2015

Metso Corporation's press release on September 22, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EET

PERUMIN mining convention takes place in Arequipa, Peru, on September 21-25, 2015. During the event, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the latest Metso solutions for reducing operating costs and maximizing production in minerals processing.

"In these challenging times for mining, Metso is in a prime position to offer value-add solutions that help customers reduce costs and increase production. For example, the wear-resistant Poly-Met® mill linings made of steel and rubber have helped eliminate financial losses and downtime. Due to their wear resistance, replacement times are even 50% longer. The new linings also decrease the weight of the grinding mill, allowing a heavier load. This means that more minerals can be processed, and production goes up. And as maintenance intervals are longer, availability of the grinding mill improves" explains Peter Hartmann, Country Manager for Metso in Peru.

At Metso Booth #1224, PERUMIN visitors will have the possibility to learn about the whole scope of Metso's offering for comminution, ranging from energy-efficient, heavy-duty MDR350 slurry pumps to a variety of mining applications. Metso's service offering will also be extensively presented, featuring grinding media, for example.

Metso Peru has been serving the local mining industry for 27 years. In Arequipa, Metso operates a Service Center as well as a Technology Process and Innovation Center. Metso's commercial office and rubber plant are located in Lima. Metso has altogether 260 employees in Peru helping their mining and aggregates industry customers increase profits, improve operational efficiency and reduce risks by utilizing Metso's unique knowledge, experienced people and innovative solutions to meet new ways of growing together.
