Metallic mill liners

Metallic mill liners

Suitable for autogenous mills, semi-autogenous mills, ball mills, rod mills and Vertimills™

Metallic mill linings are the traditional linings familiar to most mines. Improve uptime and maximize your grinding performance by using Metso's high-quality steel mill linings with an optimized design.


Maximized uptime

Long wear life and a perfect fit

Increased throughput

Tailor-made design for optimum performance and mill utilization

Ease of maintenance

Fast and safe installation due to optimized mill liner installation systems and methods

Improved sustainability

High-performing parts improve efficiency, and long-lasting liners mean fewer parts are needed

Optimized design

Metso metallic mill linings are always designed with one thing in mind: to maximize performance and minimize replacement time.

The solution offers total freedom of design and the possibility to optimize your lining based on operating data and liner handler capacity. Using linings of a modern design and maximized size minimizes the number of liners needed – and thereby your downtime.

We have made the world’s largest liners, weighing 8 tons.

Own foundries ensure reliable linings

Metso metallic mill linings are produced at our own foundries. Our chromium molybdenum steel and high-chromium white irons are specially developed for mill lining applications and are carefully selected based on the operating conditions of each mill.

Our foundries apply strict quality assurance programs at every phase of research, development, design and production. This ensures high and uniform quality for the entire supply. Precise dimensions and close tolerances guarantee that your mill lining has a perfect fit.

Combine for better results

Our ability to combine different liner materials inside the same mill and in different sections enables us to further optimize your grinding process. Unlike most other suppliers, we can complement our metallic liners with synthetic liners when suitable. Using each lining material where it performs the best makes it possible to achieve results, such as reducing the mill’s overall weight, balancing wear life for synchronized maintenance intervals, and minimizing risk for cracking and pegging. To enable this agility and adaptability, our own product engineering and production teams are essential. This is what sets Metso apart from the rest.
