Metso Corporation's press release on July 6, 2015, at 1:10 p.m. EEST

Metso, the world's leading industrial company in the mining and aggregates industries and in the flow control business, has introduced the game-changing Metso NW Series crushing & screening plant solution to the global market. The solution enables rapid plant setup in less than 12 hours without heavy cranes. This allows customers to make even the most challenging crushing sites more profitable and move to the next site more easily than ever. Metso NW Series is the first and only wheel-mounted crushing plant on the market that fits compactly into standard 40 ft (12 m) containers so that it can be shipped quickly and cost efficiently overseas or by railway transportation.

A complete plant in a single day. Anywhere.

The combination of Metso NW106 primary jaw crushing plant and the NW220GPD secondary cone crushing plant with a large dual-slope screen has been optimized to be relocated regularly. Hydraulically fine-adjustable support legs, hopper walls and screen lifting facilitate fast installation and dismantling. The plant has also been designed to be very easy and safe to operate and maintain on site.

"Setting up a conventional portable crushing and screening plant often requires preparations with foundations and other site conditions. The new Metso NW Series plant solution is designed to avoid all these challenges, and only minimal preparations on site are required," emphasizes Eric Lavieville, Global Product Manager, Portable Plants, Metso.

Metso's completely new plant conveyor design with fewer support legs makes setup quick and simple. No heavy cranes or concrete foundations are needed. Service platforms on the conveyors make your daily operations much easier and safer if you decide to stay on site for a longer period of time.

Increased production and full process control

Typical capacity of the Metso NW Series portable plant with very hard feed material and four calibrated end products is 20% higher compared with any conventional solution now available in the same size class. The increased capacity is mainly achieved by the powerful Nordberg GP220 cone crusher and the new dual-slope screen. The screen enables higher screening performance, and the whole process can be precisely adjusted by the Metso's new process control system.

The new Metso IC50C process control system is designed to form a seamless combination between the primary crushing stage and the secondary crushing & screening stage of the plant. The whole process can be started and stopped by the push of a single button, making daily operations easy and safe.
The IC50C system has been developed to meet customer expectations for consistent production, safety and easy control of the whole process. Feed and discharge conveyor control, wear compensation, auto setting adjustment and computer remote control are just a few of the many benefits the system offers. The innovative Metso IC50C system comes standard with the Metso NW Series crushing & screening plant.
