Foresight™ stations - Optimal production

Foresight™ stations help provide optimal production levels to mining operations. Using Metso proven smart controls and equipment in combination, this allows the fully connected plant to always be monitoring station conditions to ensure that no time or resources are wasted.

Smart controls

Metso Metrics provides analytical dashboards and can help with preventative maintenance. Our **VisioRock technology is applied in 2 locations: the crusher and the screen. For the screen, this will help identify if there are any issues causing the screen to run at less-than-optimal levels. For the crusher, the VisioRock helps crusher adjustment for wear compensation and product size control. Level sensors monitor bin and crusher fill levels. While the Crusher variable frequency drive (VFD) is the dynamic crusher control.

(**As of 2022, VisioRock technology has been upgraded to our Metso Rocksense family portfolio, RockSense2DTM and RockSense3DTM )

Reliable equipment

The Foresight™ stations use Metso reliable and proven equipment to combine with the smart controls.

In the MP™ Series cone crusher station, the MF Series™ banana screen is used as a scalping screen in this case and can easily handle large material volumes. A Belt feeder controls feed rate and is able to provide a consistent feed even with large volumes. Finally an MP Series™ cone crusher, which is best used in secondary or tertiary applications, has a high capacity and high crushing force and stroke to make sure the material is handled properly for optimal production. 

The Semi-mobile primary gyratory (SMPG) station utilizes the Superior™ MKIII primary gyratory crusher and plays a critical role and increases capacity due to the high speed and throughput. With our modular approach, the station use one of our reliable and robust feeding or conveying solutions to enable maximum availability and productivity through optimal flow control.

Semi-mobile primary gyratory (SMPG) station

Metso's Foresight™ semi-mobile primary gyratory (SMPG) station is a crushing plant made of steel. The guiding principle is to reduce concrete works to the largest degree and build a modular plant with a focus on ease of installation and associated site-activities, maximizing off-site work, as well as ease of relocation.

The capacity can range up to 15,000 tons per hour and is best used in primary crushing or in pit (In pit crush and convey) applications.

The SMPG station has a modular approach that focuses on a few different pillars to build your optimal station.

Metso Foresight™ stations feature the MP cone station.
MP cone station

Our featured station for the Foresight™ stations range is the MP cone station. The MP cone station is a fully connected plant for capacities up to 6,000 tons per hour and offers a lead time of 40 weeks (FCA). 

This station also will reduce plant footprint due to the use of multiple pieces of equipment in a compact design and eliminates the need for other equipment downstream.

Applications include secondary or tertiary crushing, or can be used for direct feeding to a high pressure grinding roll (HPGR) or a SAG mill.
