Metso expand MX cone crusher series
Following the successful introduction of the MX4, Metso have now launched the MX3 for mid-sized quarry applications
METSO have introduced the latest addition to their MX Multi-Action cone crusher series. The new MX3 model is said to offer improved crusher productivity and lower operating costs with a design optimized especially for mid-sized quarrying applications.
‘Our customers are constantly looking to improve their operational efficiency and to optimize yield for the most desired product fraction. With MX Multi-Action technology, we can help our customers to achieve these targets,’ said Arto Halonen, vice-president of Metso’s Crushers and Aggregates Business Area.
‘After successfully introducing MX4 to the market in 2017, we are excited to launch the MX3 model, so that an even wider range of aggregate producers can benefit from the unique advantages MX and Metso can offer.’
According to Metso, the MX ensures cost-effective and safe operations with a high reduction ratio, superior product shape and consistency. The patented Multi-Action technology is also said to deliver greater uptime and savings in the operational costs of crushing operations.
With the selective production features MX offers, crusher production can be optimized to maximize the yield of desired fractions. Moreover, crusher operations have been made easy and safe with advanced Metso IC series automation.
The Metso MX3 cone crusher is suitable for secondary, tertiary and quaternary crushing stages. Designed for both hard and soft rock applications, it will initially be available for stationary solutions.
Since its introduction in 2017, the MX4 cone crusher has proven itself at various customer sites around the world.
Mathieu Kasprzak, director of operations at Durance Granulats in France, said: ‘The MX4 has met our expectations and delivered instantaneous flow rate as well as improved crushing energy efficiency. We have also been piloting the MX3 on the quaternary stage since April 2018 and we are fully satisfied with its performance and plan to continue with it.’
