Jaw crushers

Nordberg® C Series™ is engineered for the toughest feed materials

Jaw crushers are mainly used as primary crushers. Their main purpose is to reduce rocks to smaller sizes for the next crushing stages. Jaw crushers are a popular alternative to primary gyratory crushers, since they can process large amounts of hard material efficiently. Due to their smaller physical size, jaw crushers are also ideal for tight spaces, such as underground mining and mobile crushing applications.

Excellent material intake capability and capacity

Outstanding fatigue strength

Easy and quick to install and transport

For on the ground and underground, as well as stationary and mobile applications

Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers

Metso’s family of jaw crushers is known as Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers. The product family consist of several different size jaw crusher models that are engineered to deliver maximum productivity at the lowest operating costs.

Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers have proven to be reliable and productive in thousands of mining, quarrying, recycling and industrial applications.

Developed to crush the hardest ores and rocks, Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers perform outstandingly also with less demanding materials.

Uncompromised reliability

The core of Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crusher is a pinned and bolted, non-welded frame construction that provides excellent fatigue strength. All the frame components are casted using an alloy developed in-house especially for jaw crushers.

In addition to solid casting, Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers’ frame has a cellular, so called honeycomb structure that, like in nature, has proven to be stronger and more durable.  

  • Pinned and bolted, non-welded frame construction
  • Outstanding fatigue strength
  • Excellence in casting engineering
  • Premium-quality components

High production and reduction

Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers have an aggressive motion of the pitman and long stroke in the bottom of the cavity.

A larger feed opening increases material intake and ensures that the rocks enter the jaw crusher’s cavity without restrictions. A steeper nip angle decreases operating costs by reducing wear on jaw dies and speeds up material flow down in the cavity. 

The stroke is amplified from top to bottom, leading it being longest in the bottom of the cavity. This increases the capacity as well as the reduction ratio, resulting in high production in all kinds of operations.

  • Excellent material intake capability
  • Steep cavity cross section for excellent bite
  • Aggressive pitman motion for highest capacity and reduction

Easy to install, operate, and maintain

Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers are designed modular to save time and installation costs. They can be installed within a few days, minimizing on-site engineering and fabrication.

As an optional accessory, Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers can be upgraded with an IC10C automation that enable monitoring and adjusting the settings of a feeder, crusher, and conveyor remotely. This way the jaw crusher can be controlled from a distance making it easier and yet safer to operate.  

Based on long experience and comprehensive testing at customer sites, the critical areas of Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers are protected against wear. The components and parts that require renewal from time to time are engineered to be easily accessible and replaceable when needed.

  • Easy to install in place of an existing crusher
  • Option for remote monitoring, automation and settings adjustment 
  • Possibility to transport to the site in pieces

Wide range of options

Nordberg® C Series™ jaw crushers are customizable with options for any application. Safe flywheel and drive guards protect operators from moving objects. An optional integrated motor base allows installing the crusher drive motor directly to the back of the crusher.

An optional feed chute, on the other hand, is engineered for uninterrupted material flow from the feeder into the crusher.

  • Lifting tools for jaw dies, cheek plates and toggle plate as standard
  • Optional flywheel and drive guards
  • Optional maintenance platform
  • Safe, quick and easy setting adjustment system
  • Metso IC™ crusher automation
