The Finnish quarrying plant maker, which has installed more than 10,000 HP cone crushers worldwide since 1989, says the HP900 is built to enable increased performance and reduced CAPEX (capital expenditure).
The HP900 is an upgrade to the HP800 cone crusher that has more than 175 installations, with approximately 80% of the parts being compatible between the two technologies.
The HP900 features improved kinematics, a raised pivot point and a power increase which provides 15% more capacity. A new lubrication system is included to help support the improved performance level.
“With the HP900 we go straight to the point, with increased performance and reduced CAPEX,” said Jim Bathie, VP, mining crushers at Metso.
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 set-up with a compact footprint. These factors result in reducing installation time by 50%.
Metso says that the tramp-release system means that the new crusher allows passage of tramp iron, minimising production stoppages and protecting internal components.
Top service access to the head, shaft, eccentric and other major components are intended to make disassembly safe and easy.
The crusher is equipped with Metso’s IC70C automation system, which is designed to ensure optimum operating parameters enabling full potential.
