Metso to supply Hong Kong quarry with Lokotrack equipment fleet
"As a customer, we are interested in the end products -- their shape, quantity and cost of production are key parameters for us," Derek Zen, vice chairman of Wai Kee Holdings, said. "To achieve the best results, Metso offered us a complete solution -- not just machines. Thanks to the process know-how of Metso's experts, the right solution to draw uniform-quality aggregates was found."
The equipment will enable Wai Kee to crush rock in demanding and varying rock conditions.
To reach the required capacity at the quarry, the Metso fleet consists of two trains, each consisting of five Lokotrack units -- one Lokotrack LT120 jaw plant, two Lokotrack LT300HP cone plants and two Lokotrack ST4.8 mobile screens -- as well as two conveyors. Both trains create the same end products.
The entire compact-layout crushing and screening process is designed to the customer's needs to produce aggregates in four size ranges. The Metso Lokotracks will operate for 10 to 12 hours per day to achieve the planned capacity of 1.5 million tons per year.
