Metso introduce new HP5 cone crusher
Fourth model added to company’s all-new Nordberg HP range of high-performance cone crushers
DESIGNED with safety, simplicity and eco-efficiency in mind, the Nordberg HP5 from Metso follows the successful HP3, HP4 and HP6 as the fourth model in an all-new range of high-performance cone crushers.
With more than 9,000 HP cone crushers in operation worldwide, the design of new Nordberg HP5 leverages Metso’s 100+ years of crusher know-how and experience to deliver a combination of efficient crushing action, optimal feed size, high performance and the lowest cost per tonne.
Automatic settings, specialized maintenance tools, reduced emissions and energy-efficient motors are just a few of the improvements built into the new cone crusher.
With 5% larger feed size compared with the HP400 and a higher capacity than the HP500 in tertiary applications, the HP5 is said to be unsurpassable in its class. In addition, a higher cavity density improves inter-particle crushing action to deliver end products with more consistent gradation and superior shape.
With regard to maintenance, an advanced fastening system for the mantle and bowl liner eliminates the need for backing material and makes liner changes safer and faster. The HP5 cone crusher is also easy to disassemble, with all components accessible from the top or side. The bowl and head are easily and safely removed with no interference.
Moreover, a new motor support allows the belts to be stretched hydraulically, and lifting points have been redesigned to easily and safely lift the HP5. Platform guards help to ensure operator safety and protection.
The HP5 features Metso’s innovative IC70C crusher automation system, which is designed to meet customer expectations and crushing plant requirements for consistent production, safety and easy control of crusher parameters. Feed and discharge conveyor control, wear compensation, auto-setting adjustment and computer remote control are just some of the many benefits that the IC70C system offers.
