Metso Outotec launches its industry-leading pelletizing plant technology in a new, compact size

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on July 1, 2022, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Metso Outotec has optimized its existing induration technology offering and is launching its Compact-sized Pellet Plant. The plant design is based on a three-meter-wide indurating machine, building on the state-of-the-art design of Metso Outotec’s larger product range. The new compact plant offers the same high plant performance and premium product quality as the larger size plants.

Metso Outotec Compact-sized Pellet Plant will be offered in the following standard sizes and corresponding capacities:

  • 189 m2 (1.2 – 1.5 MTPA)
  • 288 m2 (1.7 – 2.3 MTPA)
  • 315 m2 (2.0 – 2.6 MTPA)

The new plant design is cost efficient with optimized delivery time, thanks to high standardization in design and project execution. At the same time, the design provides the required flexibility to cater to typical customer demands, and customers can also customize the basic offering with add-on packages.

“We are very excited to launch the Compact-sized Pellet Plant. We aim to cater to the flourishing mid-size concentrate producer segment needs with this new offering. Conventionally, 4m is the commonly available and most-used technology. However, today there is an increasing demand for plants with smaller capacities,” says Matthias Gabriel, Director, Ferrous product group at Metso Outotec. He adds: “We have already won an order for this technology and will be installing our first three meter wide travelling grate pellet plant in Nagarnagar, Chhattisgarh, in central India. The plant, which will produce 2 mtpy of high-quality iron ore pellets, is expected to go into production in 2024.”
