Delivering immediate results:
Minimize high risk maintenance work
Optimized shutdown tasks
Reduce your crusher downtime by up to 45% with Metso’s rotable top shell. A simple solution with major impact - using additional shell segment(s), which are already inspected and lined prior to your shutdown, makes for faster, safer, and more economical wear parts replacement.
Less downtime: When it is time to replace the concaves, the shell is already serviced and inspected
Efficiency: Reduced maintenance hours can be reallocated to other tasks during the shutdown
Safer process: Reduced risk as more tasks are done in a controlled environment
Predictable costs: Shutdown costs are known prior, making it easier to plan and manage budgets
Flexibility: Relining and top shell maintenance is done outside the critical path, allowing you to schedule it when it fits with your workload
Off-site: Work can be done at a Metso facility so you can focus on other task
The process is safe, simple, and speedy:
- Complete top shells are relined
In advance of a shutdown, the rotable top shells are relined within a safe and controlled environment
- Complete top shells are removed
During the shutdown, installed shells are unfastened and simply split via hydraulic shell separators before being lifted
- Complete top shells are installed
Rotable shells with installed concaves are quickly installed, minimizing labor hours and risk hazards to crews
