Metso Launches a New Mobile Waste Crusher
Helsinki, Finland, 06 May 2008 -- Metso Minerals has introduced a new track-mounted, mobile device for on-site waste crushing.

Metso Minerals’ new solution for primary waste crushing combines features of its Lokotrack track-mounted crushing plants and the Lindemann series of waste crushing equipment. The result is a highly flexible crusher that can operate independently of electricity and road networks for up to three days of operation with no need for refueling. It can serve a number of locations, can be integrated flexibly in a machine assembly, or can also be leased out at short notice.

The new waste crusher has been designed for difficult areas and extreme inclines, and for difficult materials such as mattresses, carpets, railway sleepers, tree trunks, and even thick rolls of paper. Average throughput is between 30 and 50 tons/hour, depending on the type of household, commercial, and industrial waste, as well as wood waste, and the crusher type.

Efficient crushing of bulky waste is crucial for the availability of the entire waste processing plant, and for the performance of the downstream sorting and separation technology. The machine also will serve well in waste collecting and demolition sites and in forests or for agricultural purpose to reduce bulky waste and other bulky residue. The crusher also will be well-suited for future demand for rebuilding of landfills – so-called “urban mining.”

With the mobile waste crushing solution, Metso is responding to the European demand for efficient and flexible waste management solutions. Metso Minerals plans to start serial production of the crusher in 2009.

Metso is a global engineering and technology corporation with 2007 net sales of approximately EUR 6 billion. Its almost 27,000 employees in approximately 50 countries serve customers in the pulp and paper industry, rock and minerals processing, the energy industry. and selected other industries.
