Readers of the Mining Magazine have voted Metso Megaliner™ the winner of the 2012 Mining Magazine Mineral Processing award. The annual awards celebrate companies, products and projects within the mining industry that have been particularly innovative over the past year.
Metso introduced Megaliner™ Poly-Met shell liners for AG mills in 2012. The new product was the outcome of Metso's persistent research and development work to find ways to speed up mill lining installations and at the same time improve safety. The Metso Megaliner™ shell liner is now also available for use in ball mill applications.
Today's large mills require quick replacement of linings because of high downtime costs. At the same time the standards are raised on installation safety. Keeping downtime in large mills to a minimum, Megaliner™ increases worker safety, as the liner is bolted into place from outside the mill, keeping workers out of the liner's drop-zone when performing maintenance.
