Easy and safe to transport and operate
Lokotrack® Urban™ Series unique noise encapsulation features cut up to 60% of crushing noise distance
Lokotrack® Urban™ Series mobile jaw crushers are equipped with noise and dust encapsulation features minimizing disturbance to people living and working close by. Track-mounted Lokotrack® Urban™ Series crushing plants are available in a wide range of configurations and capacities, including models with an integrated screen.
No more permit problems
Thanks to very low noise emissions and advanced dust suppression system, Lokotrack® Urban™ Series mobile crushers can be used near residential areas. The unique noise encapsulation features cut the crushing noise protection distance up to 60% compared to conventional crushing.
This allows you to run crushing operations in heavily regulated urban locations and bid for contracts that could not be completed with conventional crushing equipment.
By crushing on site, you can minimize or even eliminate the need to transport aggregates and waste materials to and from the site. Reducing back and forth truck traffic speeds up production, lowers costs and emissions, and improves profitability.
Excellent noise suppression also results in you crushing longer every day as the hourly limits on permits can be extended.
Easy transportation and maintenance
The noise and dust encapsulation features of Lokotrack® Urban™ Series mobile crushers are designed in such a way that they do not compromise the transport dimensions, ease of maintenance, or safe operation of the plant.
With Metso IC™ process control system you can automate, monitor, control, and optimize the entire crushing process for better productivity, less downtime, and consistent end product quality.
We also offer Metso Metrics to provide critical insights on your crusher’s performance and maintenance needs, and Metso Cr™ to enable remote monitoring and control of the crushing process from the excavator cabin.
Noise regulations in city centers can restrict crushing with a conventional crusher and aggregate crushing needs to be done in another location.
The distance to a suitable crushing site can be as short as 1 km away from the construction site.
This means that the rocks or demolished waste needs to be transported for crushing for 1 km round trip along a public road.

“The Lokotrack® Urban LT96™ jaw crusher plant is noise- and dust-free, and every company that recycles concrete should have one,” says Mikko Mähönen, Managing Director of the Finland-based demolition company Purkumerkki. Recycling of demolition material is the way go to - landfill costs are high.
For a building project in Lier, Norway, Martin Rønning AS needed a solution that would remove the need to transport rocks to a remote location for crushing before returning the aggregate to the same construction site. That solution was the Metso Lokotrack® Urban™ LT106S, a mobile jaw crushing and screening plant that reduces the spread of noise by up to 60% compared to conventional crushers.
Benth Winqvist, CEO of Abbema, is fully aware of the importance of noise levels, based on his previous experience working on noise mapping projects for the Swedish Rail Administration. It was no accident that Abbema decided to go with a Lokotrack® Urban™ when it came time to invest in a new mobile crushing plant.
