The first models of the range are the NW120 Rapid portable jaw crushing unit and NW1213 Rapid portable impact crushing unit, which have been re-designed to permit their transport in most North American states.
“Traditionally, it has been very common in North America to put crushers on wheels. We developed the North America specific models to meet our customers’ requirements - road regulations are getting tighter and they are looking for more complete solutions from one supplier,” says Julius Mäkelä, director of Portable and Modular Solutions at Metso and adds: “We are pleased to tell our customers that the first NW1213 Rapid impact crusher is being delivered to the USA and a set of NW120 units are being prepared for delivery as we speak”.
NW Rapid can be moved from one site to another using standard prime movers. Besides portability, other advantages of the NW Rapid models include quick set-up and a best-in-class production capacity of up to 500 metric tons per hour. NW Rapid has been designed so that the units can be set up in about an hour. The solution consists of modules that can be used to create a variety of combinations also in fixed installations as needed.
The NW Rapid series will be officially launched at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020 in Las Vegas, USA (10-14 March).
