Metso will supply four FIT™ Crushing Stations in the Americas. Three of the crushing stations will be delivered to an iron ore mine in Brazil and one to a gold plant in Canada. The combined value of the orders is approximately EUR 20 million. The Brazilian orders are booked in Metso’s Minerals segment 2023 fourth-quarter order intake.
The game-changing crushing and screening solution was launched in 2020. Since then, Metso has sold 24 FIT™ Stations around the world for applications ranging from gold, iron ore, graphite, lithium, and copper to slag.
“We have been thrilled to see the customer interest in the modular FIT™ Station. The flexible solution enables us to deliver the plants with a short lead and installation time. When comparing the FIT™ Station to similar crushing and screening plants in mining, we have seen a more than 30% reduction in implementation time,” notes Erwin Huber, VP, Crushing and Conveying Systems at Metso.
The FIT™ Station is focused on flexibility and speed for quick installation with Primary Gyratory Stations, Jaw Stations, Cone Crushers Stations, Screening Stations and Recrushing Stations. Metso Product Manager Daniel Nagano highlights: “The capacities range from 200 to 4,000 tons per hour and all can be used in unique applications with multiple equipment configurations, and the combination of equipment modules can accommodate any kind of mining application.” Modular FIT Conveyors and Ore Sorting Modules can also be added to the solution.
