Metso adds new features to mobile crusher

Company’s Lokotrack LT200HP has new fuel-saving features.

October 8, 2018

Equipment maker Metso Corp. says its Lokotrack LT200HP mobile cone crushing plant now features a direct v-belt drive from the gearbox designed to deliver fuel consumption savings of 15 percent or more compared to hydraulic-driven cone crushers. The LT200HP also complies with European Stage V emission regulations, the Finland-based global equipment supplier says.

“Fuel consumption and efficiency are always at the top of our customers’ priority lists, and reducing emissions levels has become an increasingly important issue in recent years,” says Kimmo Anttila, vice president of Lokotrack Solutions for Metso. “In this respect, the LT200HP delivers on all counts with a fuel consumption savings of 15 percent or more.”

Lokotrack LT200HP is designed for secondary and tertiary crushing operations such as producing aggregates for railway ballast, road construction, asphalt and concrete fractions. In addition to being more efficient, the reconfigured LT200HP also features several safety and maintenance improvements, according to Metso. These include elevated service platforms designed to provide safe, easy access to service and maintenance points and other changes designed to make daily maintenance quicker and easier.

The LT200HP is also available with the Metso ICr wireless information and control system, which allows customers to monitor and control the crushing plant from an excavator cabin. The entire Lokotrack train of Metso primary Lokotrack plants or Metso mobile screens can be controlled with Metso ICr, according to the firm.

“The compact transportation dimensions of the Lokotrack LT200HP combined with its powerful Nordberg HP200 cone crusher make it a winning solution for mobile crushing and screening,” Product Manager Jouni Hulttinen comments.
