Revolutionized crusher durability and maintenance

The industry-leading Superior™ MKIII primary gyratory and Nordberg® MP cone crushers have been elevated with the XM Series to offer the most extreme duty parts, increased lifetime and improved maintenance time and safety.

With Superior XM Series you can expect long-lasting parts with the mantle lifetime increased by up to 50% and doubled lifespan of concaves and protective parts. Maintenance is simplified with visual guiding by inspection hatches and the elimination of seal repositioning inside the machine. With Optishell™, the lifetime of concaves can be extended by up to 40% for a single feed point at the primary station. Optishell™ technology also removes the need for a crane when rotating the shells and spider.

The Nordberg MP XM Series enhanced durability is reflected in the forged head, which is 3 times more robust. Cavity liners’ lifetime is increased by up to 50% and protective parts’ lifespan is quadrupled. Maintenance is safer and more efficient with the suppression of torch heating operations inside the crusher, the use of portable tools instead of heavy ones, and the elimination of the need to invert the clamping ring assembly.
