It has over 120 years' experience and therefore possesses an extensive portfolio of renowned brands such as Nordberg, Lokotrack, Barmac, Trellex, Skega, Flexowell and Svedala.
Metso's high fidelity simulation (HFS) technology improves the performance of processes for rock-size reduction and the design of wear parts, reducing the specific energy consumption of its crushing and grinding systems.
Optimizing control system (OCS©) is a unique software package developed specifically for process control. It features all the tools and functionality required to simplify and enhance application development and maintenance.
OCS possesses innovative elastomer and composite wear-protection materials to reduce wear, dust emissions and noise. It improves the recovery of valuable minerals and reduces the volume of process tailings and waste per ton of a product.
Metso's process technology expertise provides products and services aimed at the analysis, control and optimization of minerals processing systems. The core competencies are aligned with those of plant operations and include process control, simulation, technical training and process engineering.
These products and services offer a solution to the problems posed by variables such as ore properties, product requirements, site conditions and environmental issues. It balances these against projected maintenance and wear costs, energy costs, manpower and other expenses. Benefits flow from improved control, stability and systems designed with operability and maintainability.
Extensive experience with the latest technology, pilot-scale trials and the specific needs of customers' operations ensures complete mine-to-mill optimization. Metso has a proven track record in greenfields and its retrofit projects have evolved as a specialty.
Metso is the world's leading supplier of gearless AG / SAG and ball mills. The experience gained from installation and operation of these mills has enabled Metso to offer some of the largest and most efficient grinding mills worldwide.
The current designs, the VERTIMILL® and stirred media detritor (SMD), are designed for applications such as primary, secondary, regrind, fine and ultra-fine grinding and lime slaking. The VERTIMILL has proven to be a versatile tool that exhibits many advantages over traditional ball milling. The VERTIMILL offers higher energy efficiency, which results in lower operating costs.
Nordberg SUPERIOR® primary gyratory crushers are suited to high-capacity primary crushing applications, while the HP® series of cone crushers are the preferred secondary and tertiary crushers for the mining market.
Feeding, conveying, loading, unloading, stockpiling or reclaiming; whatever your needs are, Metso has the bulk materials handling solution to meet your goal.
With a full line of mining screens for both wet and dry applications, as well as screening media for optimum end-product quality, Metso provides numerous vibrating equipment brands that the industry has grown to respect and trust.
In terms of volume, size reduction is the largest single process operation in minerals processing. Metso's array of comminution equipment optimizes circuit efficiency to ensure a smooth beneficiation process.
At the forefront of separation technology, Metso offers solutions to all beneficiation and upgrading applications, including classification, agitation, flotation, magnetic separation, sedimentation, filtration, dewatering and drying.
Metso's line of heavy-duty centrifugal slurry pumps has been renowned across the mining world for more than a century.
The best operational performance and equipment availability calls for the best in wear protection. Metso pioneered rubber mill-lining systems and leads the way in developing composite lining solutions to improve grinding efficiency and reduce costs in a wide range of applications for wet and dry processes. Its full range of manganese wear parts also ensures long life and reduced wear.
Enrichment of many ores and industrial minerals are processed to perfection by the drying, kiln pelletizing, calcining and thermal processing expertise of Metso's pyro processing group.
Metso is a global supplier of sustainable technology and services. Its vast product range and unparalleled knowledge enables it to provide the best solutions to customers for overall plant / equipment efficiency.
