New Maintenance Platform to Increase Safety

Metso has developed a new maintenance platform that increases safety when changing wear parts in jaw crushers.

It consists of hand rails which are also used for lifting the platform, sturdy work platforms and related control mechanisms, enabling them to be precisely placed at the desired height of the jaw opening. “The platform constructed of aluminum is easy enough for one person to move,” the Finland-based manufacturer emphasized. “The maintenance platforms are available to match with either single-piece or two-piece jaw dies.” Metso has applied to patent the maintenance aid.

The family of maintenance platforms is available for all Metso Nordberg C Series jaw crusher models C80 through C200. Due to their low weight (12 to 23 kilograms), they are easy to lift into position and remove, speeding up the work of changing parts, says the Finnish company.
