Rio Tinto has awarded Metso an order for ten HP Series cone crushers to be installed at the Tom Price iron ore mine in Western Australia. This order follows the initial award of six HP series cone crushers in late 2022. The crushers in the initial order are currently being delivered to the Paraburdoo iron ore mine and the Pilbara mine. The latest order is booked in the Minerals segment’s third-quarter 2023 orders received.
“The HP500™ cone crushers will replace the long-serving Symons cone crushers. The compact and versatile HP Series crushers are a step change in the crushing process, enabling maximum operator safety and easy maintenance as the key components can be accessed from the top of the crushers. They provide a more sustainable solution, delivering high output with decreased energy consumption despite their smaller size. Additionally, the new crushers feature an option for digitizing the operation,” explains Julius Mäkelä, Vice President, Mid-size and Mobile Crushers at Metso.
The compact size of the HP500™ cone crusher is well suited as a replacement for Symons crushers. The HP500™ is utilized in aggregates production, quarrying applications, and mining operations worldwide.
