Metso VPX™2540 filter

The big smart and future ready filtration leap

Mining filters in the circuit are there to provide filtration of materials during beneficiation. The Metso VPX™2540 filter is a giant leap in filtration, and provides high water recovery and reuse even with the toughest materials to filter.

High capacity

Short technical time, increased pressure and increased number of chambers

Multi-action and modular

Compact design and adaptive technology offering modular scale up potential

Smart control system

Self adjusting and load cell weighing system for smarter and more optimal performance

Increased safety

Fully electro mechanical system with reduced noise and overall lowered risks

Driven by growing volume of tailings and increasing scarcity of water, the mining industry is seeking sustainable solutions and strategies to address rising risks and costs, compliances and increasing global resource footprint. The risk of tailings dam failure could be completely avoided by dewatering and dry stacking the tailings. Metso, with its strong legacy in dewatering solutions, takes the filtration technology to the next level with intense commitment to maximize water recovery and reuse.

The Metso VPX™2540 filter is the answer for today's problem, but the solution for the future and beyond. Metso VPX™2540 filter is the smartest and safest solution to all challenges that mines are facing with tailings providing up to 90% water recovery and less than 7% moisture content to the materials that pass through. There is no material that is too tough for the Metso VPX™2540 filter to handle.

High capacity

The Metso VPX™2540 filter has been designed from the ground up for an increased capacity with a 40 mm chamber depth. This provides up to 29m³ volume and a 1391m² filtration area. This filter has the fastest opening and closing time, also known as short technical time, out of all the top filters in the mining industry.

The cycle time and pressure can also be easily adjusted depending on the different conditions of the ores. The pressure has also been increased and so has the number of chambers with lesser maintenance needed.

All factors that contribute to higher capacity and availability as well.



Modular and multi-action

The Metso VPX™2540 filter has a compact design that has an offering for an upscale modular potential. This new technology in the Metso VPX filter has proven to be adaptive to handle any range of difficulty of material with up to 25 bars of operating pressure.

The Metso VPX™2540 filter design and technology gives comfort to know as conditions and ores change that the results will not. In comparison to Metso's other VPA filter there has been up to 2x the speed increase.

Smart control system

The Metso VPX™2540 filter comes with a load cell weighing system integrated to a control system for optimum performance. This control system provides a self-adjusting filter providing an easier operation and less employee risk because of automation.

The Metso VPX™2540 filter has brought in technology that is providing results today, but will give better sustainable results for tomorrow.

Increased safety

Safety is always a huge concern for any mining operation and will be a focus to sustain high safety levels.  The Metso VPX™2540 filter has a fully electronic mechanical system with no hydraulics. This will create reduced noise pollution and lowered risks compared to a filter with hydraulics.

The Metso VPX™2540 filter brings overall increased safety while performing at a high standard during filtration.
