The new LT116 extends Metso's Lokotrack mobile crusher range
Metso Minerals has extended its range of Lokotrack mobile crushing units with the launch of the LT116 jaw plant. According to the company, the 50tonne unit, which is the smallest in the 30-strong Lokotrack range, is both compact and easily transportable.
Central to the design of the 400tonne per hour capacity LT116 is the C116 jaw which features a new cavity design for
better grip and maximum inter-cavity crushing. The jaw unit also has an automatically adjustable feeder speed to give the plant efficient and continuous choke feeding. The jaw plates of the C116 are interchangeable between the fixed and moveable side, which Metso claims offers longer lifetime and better operational performance.
The crusher has a feed opening of 1150mm by 800mm to give the machine a maximum feed size of 640mm. Based on the feeding system, the LT116 can be equipped with a 6m3 or optional 9m3 feed hopper. For quick set-up, the feed hopper flanks can be folded hydraulically.
Power for the crusher is provided by a 310kW Caterpillar engine. Metso has also fitted its IC500 intelligent control system to the unit to offer a single-button process start, automatic control and a built-in diagnostics system.
The crusher is also available as the LT116S, which has a detachable one deck screen, This has a 3.9m2 screening area with 20mm to 80mm screen mesh options. The rotation direction of the screen can be turned, making it possible to improve screening capacity and efficiency.
