Revolutionary crushing and screening plant
Unique design features
Setting up a conventional portable crushing and screening plant normally takes at least a week and often requires preparations with foundations and other site conditions. In addition, equipment transportation can be difficult and requires special arrangements. The NW Rapid is the first and only compact wheel-mounted crushing plant on the market that fits compactly into standard 40-foot (12-metre) containers, allowing it to be easily transported from one place to another by sea, rail or truck. Fast installation and dismantling is facilitated with hydraulically fine-adjustable support legs, hopper walls and screen lifting.
´Cost-efficiency achieved by easy set-up and flexibility serves our customers in the emerging markets particularly well, since it is important to be able to swiftly move production to where the construction projects are situated,´ says Julius Mäkelä, Product Manager, Portable Solutions, Metso.
The NW Rapid Series includes equipment for multiple aggregate production needs, such as portable jaw crushing, cone crushing as well as horizontal and vertical shaft impactor plants. With these products, customers can set up multistage crushing and screening plants for high-quality end products as well as for ballast production. The NW Rapid crushing and screening plant can be fed by excavator, wheel loader or dump trucks. Ready-made layouts cover screen feed and cone feed applications, with and without surge hoppers and field conveyors.
The increased capacity is mainly achieved by the powerful Nordberg® GP220(TM) cone crusher and the new four-deck dual-slope screen, enabling higher screening performance. The whole process can be precisely adjusted by a process control system.
´The new Metso IC50C(TM) process control system forms a seamless combination between the primary crushing stage and the secondary crushing & screening stage of the plant. The whole process, including field conveyors, can be started and stopped with the push of a single button, making daily operations safe and easy,´ says Mäkelä.
The NW Rapid complies with European safety standards, and it can be issued with a CE marking.
