Rugged Metso LT1000 crusher-screener arrives in Australia

The Metso Lokotrack LT1000 crushing and screening plant, which was designed, engineered and manufactured in the company’s facility in Alwar, India, has been introduced to the Australian market by Tutt Bryant Equipment.

Made using components from brands such as Cummins, Bosch, Rexroth, Sauer Danfoss and Wurth, the LT1000 series is being marketed as operator-friendly, simple to maintain and engineered for rugged conditions. Tutt Bryant says it has been “tried and tested in Zambia, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia to name but a few [countries], with outstanding results.”

The units use the Metso Nordberg C106 single-toggle jaw crusher, Nordberg GP11 cone crusher and 1.5m x 3.5m screen box. Efficiency is said to have been improved through the use of mechanical drives, and the plants can be tailored to a wide range of applications through the use of different types of liners.

“The Nordberg C106 is especially designed for mobile applications,” Tutt Bryant says. “One of the important C106 features is a long and very efficiently directed stroke which ensures an outstanding performance in any application. Thanks to the long stroke and stroke direction, the C106 outperforms any jaw in its size category.”

The jaw crusher’s features include a protection plate behind the dies, bolted frame and replaceable tow wedges.  

At the heart of the LTG1000 is the heavy-duty Nordberg GP11F cone crusher, which has “optimised wear parts [to] keep operating costs down”, Tutt Bryant says. “As with all GP cone crushers, the GP11F does not require the use of backing compound for liner fixing. This makes liner changes quick, easy and cost effective while giving you higher availability.”

Maintenance and service of the cone is made easier through the ability to disassemble it from above and lift all heavy components upwards.

Finally, there’s the high-capacity 1.5m x 3.5m two-bearing, two-deck screen box. Its meshes are interchangeable and both the top and bottom decks are end-tensioned for easier and safer screen changes. An aggressive 9mm circular stroke generates up to 5G, Tutt Bryant says, “allowing for greater efficiency no matter what angle the screen is adjusted to”.

A product release day near Melbourne is scheduled for late February 2015, when the Lokotrack LT1000 will be commissioned and run. Metso and Tutt Bryant staff will be on hand. Register by emailing or calling 1300 658 888. More information:
