The Lokotrack LT120 by Metso combines crushing performance and user-friendly design in a new, revolutionary way. For the first time, the same Lokotrack model is now offered in both hydraulic and electrically driven versions according to the customer’s needs.
LT120 follows the same field proven technology seen in all of Metso’s, tracked units for more than 26 years. Every detail of the new jaw plant has been thoroughly designed for reliable and long life.
The Lokotrack LT120 was one of the new Metso products showcased at the company’s 2012 New Product Expo, October 24-25 in Columbia, S.C.
In addition to the hydraulically operated version, powered by the new Caterpillar C13 engine, Lokotrack LT120 can be equipped with electrically driven E-version. Using the electrically driven version, energy can be taken either from an external power supply or from a 420 kV onboard diesel generator.
“Today, when crushing contractors face even more challenges caused by environmental issues, our electrically driven crusher and conveyors enable a highly economical and ecological process,” said Timo Nakari, product manager for the Lokotrack LT120.
In addition, the LT120E electrical system is designed in such a way that it provides the same benefits in operation and maintenance as the hydraulic version, making it very user-friendly, Nakari added.
LT120 is built around the new C120 jaw crusher, featuring a long 1-7/6-in. stroke, and 75-in. fixed jaw die. C120 has a large feed opening 34 x 47-in. and an aggressive cavity cross section, delivering a high reduction ratio.
Metso C120’s closed side setting ranges between 2-3/4 – 8-in. and capacity range between 240 – 595 stph (175 – 430 mtph).
Economy and low fuel consumption are secured by using flywheels of high inertia and optimal rpm.
