Metso Outotec is renewing its NW Rapid portable plant solutions in the 250 tonnes per hour (tph) capacity range.
The Finnish company says that, to give its customers even better competitive edge, it has renewed the 250 -tph-range crushers with integrated screen.
“The material flow is better, separate the electric cabinet from the chassis for improved ergonomics, and we are introducing a new on-board under -size conveyor for easier transportation of the NW220GPS, NW200HPS and NW7150S Rapid in one piece,” said Jarno Pohja, product manager, portable solutions, aggregates business area at Metso Outotec.
He added that two new portable screens are also being added to the range, NW2060S and NW1855S, to provide even more flexibility for customers.
As wheel-mounted machines and conveyors designed to be set up without heavy cranes, the entire NW Rapid plant can be re-located in 1-2 years to a new crushing or construction site. Crushing permits are also easier to get for a portable plant.
"Producing aggregates near a periodical construction site such as highway, airport or a dam project, there are significantly savings compared to transporting the rocks from a stationary quarry,” said Pohja.
The NW Rapid concept provides quarries with capacity, mobility and flexibility and enables short time between job assignment and delivery. The plant consist of primary, secondary and tertiary crushing stations that make the entire plant quick to set up, as the process layout and flow sheets are pre-designed for different capacities and amount of end products.
