Metso Outotec is renewing its NW™ Rapid™ portable plant solutions in the 250 tph capacity range.

The NW Rapid concept provides the quarries with capacity, mobility and flexibility and enables a short time between job assignment and delivery. The plant consists 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 amounts of end products. As wheel-mounted machines and conveyors are designed to be set up without heavy cranes, the entire 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 a highway, airport or a dam project, there are significant savings compared to transporting the rocks from a stationary quarry. To get our customers an even better competitive edge, we have renewed the 250 tph range crushers with an integrated screen. The material flow is better, separate the electric cabinet from the chassis for improved erconomics, and we are introducing a new on-board under size conveyor for easier transportation of the NW220GPS, NW200HPS and NW7150S Rapid in one piece”, says Jarno Pohja, Product manager, Portable solutions, Aggregates business area, Metso Outotec. ”We are also adding two new portable screens to the range, NW2060S and NW1855S, to have even more flexibility for the customer process”, adds Jarno.

The benefits of the NW Rapid portable crushing solutions include

  • Possible to re-locate in 1-2 years for crushing near the construction site and easier crushing permits
  • Fast and easy purchase with 15 ready-made layouts and flowsheets
  • Fast set-up with well-documented support and hydraulic options
  • The highest in-class capacity ranges up to 350tph
  • Process control and remote user interface included as standard with Metso Outotec IC process control system
  • Lifecycle Services: Equipment Protection Services (EPS) including Metrics Services, scheduled inspections and extended warranty, wear and spare parts delivery plan

The NW Rapid portable crushing plant solutions will be showcased in the Hillhead trade event in the UK on June 23-24, 2022, in Metso Outotec’s distributor Duo Group, stand D6.

Metso Outotec and Malvern Panalytical have signed a collaboration agreement to provide sensor-based bulk ore sorting solutions for the mining industry. The combination of the companies’ expertise in crushing and bulk material handling solutions and ore analyzers enables the parties to offer an industry-leading portfolio of solutions for bulk ore sorting. With this offering, mining customers can substantially improve head grade by preconcentrating the ore at the crushing stage and thereby reduce their energy consumption and related environmental footprint in the comminution stage.

”Sustainability is a top priority for our entire industry. Collaboration with partners like Malvern Panalytical will allow us to meet the industry’s increasing sustainability and resource efficiency needs in an enhanced way in the early comminution stage. Sensor-based bulk ore sorting and data-driven analysis upgrades low-grade or waste stockpiles, making them economical and far less energy-intensive to treat,” says Rashmi Kasat, Vice President, Digital Technologies at Metso Outotec.
