Metso continues to innovate crushing chamber solutions to improve aggregate customers’ crusher economy. At the AGG1 2024 event, the company introduces several new wear part products that are designed to improve uptime and crushing performance and make aggregate producers’ operations more sustainable and profitable.

“Almost every aggregates crushing application and their requirements are different,” says Joni Meronen, Vice President, Aggregates Crusher Wears at Metso. “Abrasiveness and hardness of the feed material varies a lot from soft rock to extremely hard rock. In addition, there are different aggregates operations from large industrial quarries to contractor crushing using mobile crushing plants. By selecting the best suited crusher wear parts for their requirements, aggregate producers can improve the crushing performance, reduce non-sellable material and improve energy efficiency.” He concludes: “Improvements in these areas are directly improving aggregate producers’ profitability. With our new offerings and new products, we want to deliver the best crusher economy for all aggregate producers.”

Metso LongLife crusher wears will last up to from 35% to 50% longer in all typical aggregates applications from fine crushing to railway ballast production. LongLife wears combine all Metso’s greatest concepts learned from +20 years of Chamber Optimization program as product offering for all HP cone crusher cavities. While not the only feature, the main feature is carefully considered thickness increase, still ensuring that they can be used flexibly across most applications. They reduce the need for liner change-outs significantly, therefore reducing costs, while also increasing both uptime and customer revenue, and improving safety.

The new crusher wear products are featured in Metso’s booth #511 at the AGG1 international construction trade show taking place in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 25-27, 2024.
