Metso has introduced the new Nordberg HP900 Series cone crusher for the aggregate and mining markets, providing an upgrade to the HP800 cone crusher. Approximately 80 percent of the parts are compatible between the two technologies.
The HP900 comes with improved kinematics, raised pivot point and power increase which leads to a 15 percent capacity increase. A new lubrication system is included to help support the new performance level, while the tramp-release system allows the passage of tramp iron, minimizing production stoppages and protecting internal components.
The HP900 is delivered pre-assembled, pre-wired and factory tested. The equipment is packaged with a rubber-pad mounted subframe and guards allowing quick and safe setup with a compact footprint. These factors result in reducing installation time by 50 percent.
The crusher is also equipped with Metso’s IC70C automation system to ensure optimum operating parameters. The IC70C is designed to be easy and simple to use. All information can be tracked using a single screen and features help and trouble-shooting options.
