Efficient comminution can increase production and reduce cost


Metso comminution specialists use ore characterization data, comprehensive plant surveys, and historical operational data to develop site specific models for your comminution processes. These models are used in simulation studies along with extensive industrial and consulting experience and our benchmarking database to assess your comminution processes. We evaluate circuit configuration, operational parameters and the key design variables to identify areas for improvement in the comminution process.  

We can deliver debottlenecking and optimization of existing circuits, evaluation of expansion options, design of new circuits, and comparison of different flowsheets and equipment options. Our expertise covers traditional equipment and circuits as well as alternative flowsheets and technologies. All comminution evaluations are conducted with a fundamental understanding of upstream and downstream interactions to provide solutions that deliver the best outcome for the overall operation.
