Metso to supply big mining crushers

Metso has signed a contract with Codelco in Chile to supply big cone crushers for a process improvement project in the Chuquicamata division, operating two copper and molybdenum producing mines, named Chuquicamata and Mina Sur. The contract also includes an automatic control system for crushers delivered by Metso. The complete value of the order exceeds 9 million €. According to the new contract Metso will supply three biggest cone crushers ever manufactured by Metso (Fig.). The operational weight of one MP1250 series cone crusher exceeds 150 t, and the crusher can process up to 1800 t of ore per hour in secondary position for this application. Metso’s crusher delivery to the Codelco Chuquicamata will be completed within the last quarter of 2012.

 

The total project delivery comprises three Nordberg MP®1250 cone crushers. The MP®1250 continues the success of the MP® 1000 and MP® 800 using the same footprint as the MP® 1000, but delivering up to 25 % increase in capacity. With an increased power rated up to 1250 HP (932 kW), the MP®1250 performs more work per crushing cycle, and its power-to-production ratio exceeds that of its similarly sized competitors in the market.
