Metso has supplied South America’s first Norberg® GP220™ cone crusher to Arenas y Gravas La Fontana in Colombia. The new cone crusher has increased production for the aggregates producer, which supplies the cement industry, by 114%. As well as the crusher, Metso also delivered two primary screens: the Metso PREMIER CVB 1540-1P and PREMIER CVB 2050-3.
"The GP220 helps us to increase our monthly production from 14 000 tonnes to 30 000 tonnes. At the moment, its performance has already exceeded our expectations. These results demonstrate why we chose Metso. We know the brand and the quality of the equipment and the level of service they offer. Metso is our first choice," said Anderson Salinas, General Manager of Arenas y Gravas La Fontana.
The new crusher combines high performance with operational flexibility, and its high-quality components maximise availability. In addition, thanks to its low energy consumption of only 200 kW, the GP220 has a capacity 20% – 30% higher than other cone crushers in the same size class. The crusher weighs 10 500 kg and has a maximum feed size of +200 mm. On the other hand, high crushing forces and excellent cavity geometry result in first class end-product shape and increased production of desired end product fractions. The dynamic setting control maintains excellent, stable end-product quality.
