Metso Corporation: Metso NW RapidTM, the revolutionary crushing and screening plant concept gains ground among aggregates producers

Metso NW RapidTM, the revolutionary crushing and screening plant concept gains
ground among aggregates producers

The revolutionary Metso NW Rapid is the world's first and only wheel-mounted
crushing plant that fits into standard containers and can be set up for
operation in less than 12 hours. In addition to fast installation, the NW
Rapid can increase production capacity by as much as 30% and offer higher
uptime, better safety and ease of use.

In the highly competitive aggregates market, Metso's customers are
increasingly looking for more cost-efficient ways to improve their
productivity and lower cost of operations. The NW Rapid crushing and
screening system, introduced a year ago, has proven to provide flexibility at
a whole new level. The concept helps aggregates producers to now profit more
from even smaller contracts than before and to change site locations more

NW Rapid's high production capacity was one of the decisive factors when M/s M
G Contractors Pvt Ltd in India was looking for a new plant.

"The new Metso NW Rapid plant is a perfect fit for our growing needs for more
eco-friendly, mobile and economical solutions. When looking at the available
products in the market, we realized that the NW Rapid is a breakthrough in
terms of application and quality. It is also backed by Metso's good brand
reputation and their service standards. With this purchase, we feel confident
that our production efficiency will increase by as much as 30% compared to a
traditional solution. The 12-hour set-up time is extraordinary," saysUdit
, Director, M/s M G Contractors Pvt Ltd.

Unique design features increase production and cost efficiency

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
require 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-meter) 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,"
saysJulius 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.
