Metso launches digital VertiSense™ for optimizing the grinding process in Vertimill[®] stirred mills

Metso Corporation’s press release on September 19, 2023, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Metso is introducing a new solution to its Sense series portfolio of intelligent instruments. The Sense series products are part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering, and are targeted at solving specific process challenges and enabling optimization of mineral and hydrometallurgical plant process performance. VertiSense™ enables real-time wear monitoring of screw liners and enhances the grinding process in Vertimill® stirred mills.

“We are excited to introduce VertiSenseTM to our Sense series portfolio of specialized instruments that provide analytical data to better understand processes. VertiSenseTM complements the series well and gives Vertimill® stirred mill users a unique tool to maximize operational efficiency through intuitive software and analytics. What VertiSenseTM does in practice is to ensure that wear parts are being replaced at the best time, thereby reducing waste and optimizing mill availability,” explains Rodrigo Rizzoli, Vice President, Stirred Mills & HPGR Services at Metso.

The VertiSenseTM is easy to install, maintain and use. It monitors liner wear rate and provides frequent reporting on the screw liners to assist plant maintenance personnel. Its wear measurement functionality facilitates the prediction of service life and spare stock planning. Like the rest of the Sense series products, VertiSenseTM is suited for both new and existing operations.

The Metso Sense series portfolio covers the entire minerals and hydrometallurgical process, helping customers to maximize their profitability and minimize their operating costs and environmental risks. In total, Metso’s intelligent instruments include more than 10 technologies to optimize the mining process.
