:: Metso Introduces A Rock Breaker Range
Metso’s product portfolio is expanding with the addition of a new rock breaker series designed for primary stationary crushing stations. The proven hammer-boom combination, already well known in Metso’s mobile solutions, is now available for stationary aggregates production and mining applications.
Rock breakers are commonly used in primary crushing stations to break oversized boulders that are fed into the crusher and to clear clogging in the cavity. Today, most of the primary stations use this combination to guarantee smooth, continuous performance and to minimize idling caused by build-ups and blockages.
“Today, safety at work is undeniably the number one issue within the construction and mining industries. Without a doubt, the remotely controlled hammer-boom combination provides the safest solution for clearing clogged crusher cavities," comments Ilkka Somero, Product Manager for Metso rock breaker solutions.
The new Metso MH-series hammers and MB-series booms include five boom-hammer combinations for jaw crushers and one for primary gyratory crushers. The hammer weights range from 400kg (880 lbs) to 2,200 kg (4,840 lbs) and the corresponding power ratings from 18 kW (25 hp) to 45 kW (60 hp).
