Metso to supply two energy efficient Vertimill® grinding mills to iron ore producer in Canada

Metso Corporation’s press release on September 22, 2023, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

A Canadian iron ore producer has awarded Metso an order for two powerful Vertimill® 4500 grinding mills to be delivered in Q3 of 2024. The value of the order, which exceeds EUR 10 million, has been booked in Minerals segment’s 2023 third-quarter orders received.

“We are very pleased to collaborate on projects that support decarbonization of the steel industry through production of high-grade and high-purity iron ore with sustainable processes. The Vertimill® stirred grinding mill technology is globally recognized as a leading solution for energy-efficient grinding. Compared to traditional technology, operators can typically save up to 30-35% of the electrical energy and grinding media consumption. A small footprint and easy installation are also big advantages,” says Graham Davey, Director, Stirred Mills at Metso.

Vertimill® technology is a prime example of Metso’s Planet Positive offering. It is capable of handling feed sizes of up to 6mm and grinding to product sizes of 30 microns or less. Vertimill® is available in standard mill sizes ranging from 15HP (11kW) to 4500HP (3352kW). Since the introduction of the technology in the 1990s, Metso has sold over 540 Vertimill® units to nearly all  types of minerals, including over 100,000HP of just the 4500 size.

Metso is the only manufacturer worldwide that can offer several stirred mill technologies (Vertimill®, HIGmillTM and SMD), enabling it to support customers with the most suitable and efficient mill for their application.
