When it comes to aggregates production, the crushing circuit is a critical part of the process but at the same time is one of the hardest parts to control. That is why the selection of the crusher chamber is pivotal, as the suitability of the chamber impacts your whole crushing process and its efficiency. An optimal crushing chamber for the application in question consumes less energy and provides higher yield, at a lower cost per ton. Your application is of course a major selection driver but there are other factors to chamber selection that must be considered, such as the type of operations you run (contracting or quarrying), your business model (own or leased equipment), local safety and environmental regulations, your overall willingness or capability to tie up capital on parts, and so on.

So, being able to select the optimal chamber requires taking into account not only your process, but also the business you are running. There is no one-size-fits all solution which would lead to a sustainable crusher economy. Therefore, Metso Outotec’s crusher wear portfolio includes three different product ranges and services:
