Metso expanded its product portfolio with the addition of a new rock breaker series designed for primary stationary crushing plants. The proven hammer-boom combination, already well-known in Metso's mobile crushing solutions, is now available for stationary aggregates production and mining applications.
"Today, safety at work is undeniably the number one issue within the construction and mining industries. The remotely controlled hammer-boom combination provides, without a doubt, the safest solution for clearing clogged crusher cavities," said Ilkka Somero, product manager for Metso rock breaker solutions.
Previously, Metso did not have its own hammer-and-boom combination available for stationary primary crushing stations. Based on customer demand, Metso responded with a solution to meet this need.
"We have now introduced a range of breaker boom-and-hammer combinations, and can offer our customers a complete turnkey solution. In addition to the primary crusher, Metso can now offer a comprehensive breaker attachment: a boom with assembly framework, hammer, related hydraulic power pack, and remote radio controls," Somero said.
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 800 lb. (400 kg) to 4,840 lb. (2,200 kg), and the corresponding power ratings from 25 hp (18 kW) to 60 hp (45 kW).
