The future of pelletizing is 3 meters wide

In the early days of the pelletizing technology, pellet plants were small-sized. The first pellet plants had an indurating machine width of 2.5-3 meters and annual capacities in the range of 1 million tons of pellets.

In recent years, there has been an increasing demand in the market for plants with smaller capacities. This would allow mining companies to expand their value chain and support decentralized steel-making concepts like mini mills. Metso Compact-sized Pellet Plant answers this demand.

The new Compact-sized Pellet Plant design is cost efficient with optimized delivery time, thanks to the high standardization in design and project execution. At the same time, the design provides the required flexibility in order to cater to typical customer demands.
