Metso introduced the new Nordberg HP900 series cone crusher for the aggregate and mining markets.

According to Metso, the HP900 is an upgrade to the HP800 cone crusher that has more than 175 installations. About 80 percent of the parts are compatible between the two technologies.

The HP900 comes with improved kinematics, a raised pivot point and a power increase, which leads to a 15 percent capacity increase, Metso says. A new lubrication system is included to support the new performance level.

“Often copied but never matched, HP cone crushers have satisfied many aggregates and mining customers around the world,” says Jim Bathie, vice president of mining crushers at Metso. With the HP900 we go straight to the point, with increased performance and reduced capex.”

The HP900 is delivered pre-assembled, pre-wired and factory tested. The equipment is packaged with a rubber pad-mounted subframe and guards, allowing for quick and safe setup with a compact footprint. These factors result in reducing installation time by 50 percent, Metso adds.

Thanks to the tramp-release system, the new crusher allows passage of tramp iron to minimize production stoppages and protect internal components. Top-service access to the head, shaft, eccentric and other major components make disassembly safe and easy, Metso says.

Additionally, Metso says wear parts can be replaced up to four times faster than similar cone crushers. The crusher is equipped with Metso’s IC70C automation system to ensure optimum operating parameters, enabling the full potential. The IC70C is designed to be easy and simple to use.
