New Metso ES screen guarantees profitability through enhanced screening efficiency
Metso has announced a unique and robustly designed high-energy elliptical motion horizontal screen - the Metso ES. The new screen provides increased uptime and safer maintenance, while delivering up to 25% more screening capacity compared to a conventional screen of the same size.
The Metso ES is scheduled to be available in selected markets by the end of May 2013, and fits well together with our other well known and highly recognized crushers, feeders and screens as a part of our commitment to offer total crushing and screening solutions.
"Because our customers are aiming for more accurate and consistent material separation with lower operational cost, we have taken the acclaimed Metso modular MV vibrator and integrated it into a unique, new screen design", says Mats Dahlberg, Global Business Manager of Vibrating Equipment, Mining and Construction, Metso.
The two unbalanced shaft lines in the Metso ES rotate in opposite directions, generating a high energy elliptical motion with a self-synchronization design. The Metso ES is a unique solution, which performs excellently in any application with high requirements on screening accuracy. Even in difficult screening conditions - such as wet screening or screening of sticky and dirty materials - the Metso ES provides exactly the kind of aggressive screening action you need.
Less downtime thanks to a durable design Letting your screens stand down for maintenance too frequently and for too long makes it hard to reach maximum profitability. That is why the Metso ES features an unprecedentedly robust deck frame design, with no welding along the cross member sections to achieve lasting performance.
The weld-free side plates ensure optimal durability and a high stress tolerance. The huck-bolted design guarantees perfect and homogeneous assembling conditions. There are no mechanical timing devices, gears, belts or oil leakage, which together with the reliable grease lubrication system simply keeps downtime and maintenance to a minimum.
Safe to operate and maintain Safe working environment is a priority for Metso. Therefore, an industry-leading safety level is a standard feature in the Metso ES. The up to 50% bigger space between the decks compared to similar flat screens means easier, safer and more comfortable access for maintenance. The Metso ES is also equipped with coil spring covers to minimize the risk of pinching accidents, rubber stabilizers, high-safety belt guards and one centralized, conveniently located greasing manifold. Furthermore, the gearless mechanism concept reduces noise.
Maintenance-friendly wear protection with Trellex(TM) rubber lining The feedbox, discharge spout and cardan shafts of the screen feature Trellex(TM) modular wear and impact resistance rubber linings as standard protection. Because Trellex(TM) products, such as replaceable modular cross beam protection and Trellex(TM) LS modular screening media, are optimized for Metso screens, they are excellent and easily available upgrade options for the Metso ES. The robust standard deck frame of the screen is preconfigured to handle both modular and tension screening media with minimal interruption and can be easily converted to handle the Metso media of choice.
