Metso in Oz contract
Metso Minerals has won a contract to rebuild all 13 screens at Hamersley Iron's Parker Point facility in North West Australia using its Trellex Stepflex modular system.
Hamersley Iron was finding its system for screening iron ore before loading and shipment overseas inefficient. The cross tensioned rubber screens were completely clogged up and in order to screen the ore, the company was forced to wash it and have heavy chains knocking on the screen cloths. This was a complicated procedure, that reduced capacity and required extra manpower.
