Crushing, Screening, Grinding, Pyro Processing, Separation, Filtration and Materials Handling

Metso provides crushing, screening, grinding, materials handling, separation, filtration and thermal processing equipment for the mining industry. Its heritage goes back over 120 years, combining an extensive portfolio of such renowned brands as Nordberg, Lokotrack, Barmac, Trellex, Skega, and Svedala.

Minerals processing technology / Mine to mill optimization
Metso’s process technology expertise provides products and services aimed at the analysis, control and optimization of minerals processing systems. The core competencies are aligned with those of plant operations and include process control, simulation, technical training, process engineering and much more.

They offer a solution to the problems posed by variables such as ore properties, product requirements, site conditions, and environmental issues. It balances these against projected maintenance and wear costs, energy costs, manpower and other expenses. Benefits flow from improved control, stability and systems designed with operability and maintainability.

Extensive experience with the latest technology, pilot-scale trials and the specific needs of customers’ operations ensures complete mine-to-mill optimization. Metso has a proven track record in greenfields and its retrofit projects have evolved as a specialty.

Process control
Metso’s high fidelity simulation (HFS) technology improves the performance of rock size reduction processes and the design of wear parts, reducing the specific energy consumption of its crushing and grinding systems.

OCS©, (optimizing control system) is a unique software package developed specifically for process control. It features all of the tools and functionality required to simplify and enhance application development and maintenance.

Innovative elastomer and composite wear protection materials reduce wear, dust emissions and noise, while OCS improves the recovery of valuable minerals and reduces the volume of process tailings and waste per ton of product.

Nordberg SUPERIOR® primary gyratory crushers are suited to high-capacity primary crushing applications, while the HP® and MP® series of cone crushers are the preferred secondary and tertiary crushers for the mining market.

Grinding mills
Metso is the world's leading supplier of gearless AG/SAG and ball mills. The experience gained from installation and operation of these mills has enabled Metso to offer some of the largest and most efficient grinding mills worldwide.

The current design, VERTIMILL® and stirred media detritor (SMD) are for applications such as primary, secondary, regrind, fine and ultra-fine grinding and lime slaking. The VERTIMILL has proven to be a versatile tool that exhibits many advantages over traditional ball milling. The VERTIMILL offers higher energy efficiency which results in lower operating costs.

Mining screens and screening media
With a full line of mining screens for both wet and dry applications, as well as screening media for optimum end-product quality, Metso provides numerous vibrating equipment brands that the industry has grown to respect and trust.

In terms of volume, size reduction is the largest single process operation in minerals processing. Metso’s array of comminution equipment optimizes circuit efficiency to ensure a smooth beneficiation process.

Materials handling
Feeding, conveying, loading, unloading, stockpiling or reclaiming…whatever your needs are, Metso has the bulk materials handling solution to meet your goal.

Slurry pumps
Metso’s line of heavy-duty centrifugal slurry pumps have been renowned across the mining world for more than a century.

Separation and filtration technology
At the forefront of separation technology, Metso offers solutions to all beneficiation and upgrading applications, including classification, flotation, magnetic separation, sedimentation, filtration, dewatering and drying.

Pyro processing
Enrichment of many ores and industrial minerals are processed to perfection by the drying, kiln pelletizing, calcining and thermal processing expertise of Metso’s pyro processing group.

Wear protection solutions
The best operational performance and equipment availability calls for the best in wear protection. Metso pioneered rubber and steel mill lining systems and leads the way in developing composite lining solutions to improve grinding efficiency and reduce costs in a wide range of applications for both wet and dry processes.  Our full range of manganese wear parts also ensure long life and reduced wear.

Metso is a global supplier of technology and services to customers in the process industries including mining, construction, pulp and paper, power, and oil and gas. Our 30,000 professionals based in more than 50 countries contribute to sustainability and deliver profitability to our customers worldwide. Metso’s shares are listed on the NASDAQ OMX Helsiniki Ltd.
