Mining and Construction Technology has introduced the Metso C120 jaw crusher – the 13th member of its C-series range of crushers. Designed for both stationary and mobile applications, Metso says the C120 combines reliability, crushing efficiency and versatility.
The new, durable and user-friendly design, which begins with the casting, the design of which is every detail of the C120 is engineered for reliable operation and long life, resulting in high, constant crushing capacity and uptime.
“When starting the C120 project, we listened closely to our customers and collected field data from a number of sites.” says Ilkka Somero, Metso’s product manager for jaw crushers. “Based on that, we decided to design the crusher cavity and kinematics first. As a result, Metso can now offer aggregates producers, large-scale contractors and mining companies a new crusher that meets all the standards set for any demanding application.”
The productivity of the C120 is guaranteed through several new design elements. The crusher novelty features a long and aggressively directed stroke, and a fixed jaw die longer than previously seen in this crusher size class. The C120 has a large feed opening of 34 inches by 47 inches (1200 by 870 millimeters) and an aggressive cavity cross section, securing a high performance and reduction ratio.
In terms of cavity volume and crusher weight, the C120 is positioned between the existing Metso C116 and C125 jaw crusher models.
Metso says the C120 is easy to install because of its compact design, and includes for example an optional integrated motor bed and guards. Being well-balanced, the C120 is quick, easy and cost-efficient to install through rubber mounting pads underneath the crusher mounting brackets, according to the company. No separate horizontal supports are needed. The crusher can be mounted in multiple ways to ensure an easy fit onto an existing or a new steel structure.
For a quick, easy and safe setting adjustment, it is possible to select either a mechanical or hydraulic setting adjustment system. For jaw dies, several cavity options are available. Depending on the customer’s preference, it is possible to use either single- or two-piece jaw dies.
The C120 features optional robust composite flywheel guards that allow quick and safe access to all service points. The standard delivery includes lifting tools for jaw dies, cheek plates and toggle plate, contributing to operational safety when changing wear parts.
The Metso C120’s nominal power is 200 horsepower, an operating speed 230 rpm, closed side setting between 2 ¾ to 8 inches (70 to 200 millimeters). The operational weight is 57,200 pounds (26,000 kilograms) excluding options.
