Skega™ Life: high-performing rubber

The Mill lining protects the equipment and has a large impact on mill performance. Grinding is a tough process, especially when grinding abrasive ores, and the mill liners plays a crutial role. Skega Life rubber will give you up to 25 % longer wear life, with extra value of increased sustainability, lower maintenance, improved safety, increased production though optimized throughput and increased uptime. Skega Life is part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering.  

The new Skega Life compound is developed in Metso’s own lab and validated by field studies.

Since 1959, Metso has been in the forefront of developing wear and impact resistant rubber compounds to address specific operating conditions in all types of mills. Each compound is based on our experience in thousands of real-world applications. 

Reduced noise level and safer handling

By using our rubber mill liners, your working environment can be significantly improved. The rubber components are lightweight which makes them safe and easy to handle. Moreover, mill noise levels are reduced, as rubber acts as a vibration damper and noise filter.
