New jaw crusher for construction, quarrying and mining
By Chris Sleight19 September 2012
Metso is introducing the Nordberg C120 jaw crusher to the Chinese and wider Asian markets at Bauma China. With a maximum output of 540 tonnes per hour, the 26 tonne unit has been designed for large-scale mobile crushing applications in construction, quarrying and mining.
Like other C-series jaws from Metso, the C120 are designed for reliability and high productivity and come with a range of options to make them easy to install. These include a bolt-on motor base, flywheel guard and mounting pads. There are a reduced number of service points on the unit, making it easy to maintain.
Metso says the crusher was developed on the basis of field experience from customer sites. Crusher cavity, kinematics and operating parameters weren defined and optimised for maximum productivity, while the crushers height was designed to give the steepest possible cavity cross-section.
Excellent nip angle high up in the cavity, together with an aggressive linear stroke at the bottom, help ensure high throughput capacity and reduction. Outstanding reliability combines with excellent productivity to give the lowest cost per produced ton of end product.
