FLSmidth said it received an order valued at approximately DKK 320 million ($45.3 million) to supply its Top Service Gyratory Crusher (TSUV), including a semi-mobile station and heavy-duty apron feeder to a South American copper miner. The company said the TSUV is the world’s largest primary gyratory crusher and has a handling capacity of more than 12,000 metric tons per hour (mt/h).

“This order further extends FLSmidth’s market-leading position in primary crushers and semi-mobile crusher stations, key components of our in-pit crushing and conveyor (IPCC) systems. Beyond the tangible benefits for the customer, the solution contributes to our MissionZero ambition of providing the needed technologies to enable zero emission mining by 2030,” said Mikko Keto, CEO at FLSmidth.

FLSmidth said this solution will deliver multiple efficiency benefits to the customer, including continuous crushing and conveying leading to higher throughput and optimized maintainability. The TSUV crusher and station is designed with easily accessible modules for simple and quick maintenance from the top using overhead bridge cranes. In addition, whole crusher shells with wear liners can be changed as single units to increase equipment uptime and the proprietary, self-aligning main-shaft technology significantly reduces safety risks, and assembly times and increases accuracy.
