Metso says its renewed Lokotrack LT200HP is more fuel-efficient than hydraulic-driven cone crushers
The newly-launched Metso
Lokotrack LT200HP mobile cone crushing plant is designed for secondary and tertiary crushing operations such as producing aggregates for railway ballast, road construction, asphalt, and concrete fractions. Thanks to its direct v-belt drive from the gearbox, the renewed solution is said by Metso to deliver fuel consumption savings of at least 15% compared to hydraulic-driven cone crushers. Furthermore, the LT200HP complies with European Stage V emission regulations.
“Fuel consumption and efficiency are always at the top of our customers’ priority lists. Reducing emissions levels has also become an increasingly important issue in recent years,” says Kimmo Anttila, vice president, Lokotrack Solutions, Metso. “In this respect, the LT200HP delivers on all counts with a fuel consumption savings of 15% or more.”
In addition to being more efficient, the renewed LT200HP also features several safety and maintenance improvements. These include elevated service platforms to ensure safe, easy access to service and maintenance points and improvements that make daily maintenance quicker and easier. The LT200HP is also available with the Metso ICr wireless information and control system, which allows customers to monitor and control the crushing plant from an excavator cabin. The entire Lokotrack train of Metso primary Lokotrack plants or Metso mobile screens can be controlled with Metso ICr for a complete crushing and screening solution.
“The compact transport dimensions of the Lokotrack LT200HP combined with its powerful Nordberg HP200 cone crusher make it a winning solution for mobile crushing and screening,” product manager Jouni Hulttinen concludes.
