Metso’s new Nordberg HP5 joins the HP3, HP4 and HP6 as the fourth model in its range of high-performance cone crushers. Featuring 5% larger feed size compared with Metso’s HP400, and higher capacity than the HP500 in tertiary applications, the HP5 also provides a higher cavity density that improves interparticle crushing action for end products with more consistent gradation and superior shape. An advanced fastening system for the mantle and bowl liner eliminates the need for backing material, and makes liner changes safer and faster. The HP5's thicker liners provide more material to wear.
The HP5, according to Metso, is easy to disassemble; all components are accessible from the top or side, and the bowl and head can be easily removed with no interference. A new motor support allows drive belts to be stretched hydraulically, and lifting points have been redesigned to safely raise the HP5. Platform guards help to ensure operator safety and protection. The HP5 also features Metso’s IC70C crusher automation system, providing feed and discharge conveyor control, wear compensation, auto setting adjustment and computer remote control.
