Metso launches new jaw crusher

Metso has released its new Nordberg C130 jaw crusher.

According to the company the "C130 can process more rock in the crushing process due to its larger cavity volume".

The new crusher has a 21 per cent larger cavity volume compared to previous models in its class, allowing for more rock or ore to be crushed in a single go.

"The increased volume combined with the extra large feed opening ensures high-capacity primary crushing in all demanding quarrying and mining applications," Metso said.

It has been designed with a large 1300×1000 millimetre feed opening, allowing it to process coarser feed and maintain more trouble-free material flow through.

This has upstream cost savings in blasting.

"This new design combined with a 160 kW (200 hp) power range, a small nip angle and excellent kinematics ensures aggressive crushing along the whole length of the crusher cavity," Metso's product manager for jaw crushers, Ilkka Somero, said.

"Our C130 really stands out of the crowd with its bigger cavity volume. In fact, the cavity is larger in all three dimensions: deeper, wider and longer. Consequently, the new cavity can process over 20 per cent more material increasing crushing capacity significantly," Somero said.

The Nordberg C130's operating speed is 220 rpm and the closed side setting between 100-250 mm. The operational weight is 40 100 kg, excluding options.

Safety has also been an area of focus in its design, with the jaw crusher featuring optional, easy-to-open composite flywheel guards that allows operators quick and safe access to all service points.

It also comes with an optional wear-protected feed chute, an integrated motor bed with electric drive, hydraulic setting adjustment, rock breakers with a boom combination, and a IC1000 process automation package.
