Metso’s Lokotrack LT106 jaw plant has new features designed to deliver higher productivity at lower cost per ton. The updated LT106 has a robust crusher drive and heavy-duty air filtration system with pre-cleaner requiring less maintenance. High-inertia flywheels mean fewer power peaks, so the engine consistently operates at optimum speed, lowering fuel consumption by as much as 25 to 30 percent, according to the manufacturer.
The LT106 is built around Metso’s C106 jaw, featuring a 42 by 28 in. (106 by 71 cm) crushing chamber for high output. The LT106 also is fitted with an aggressive vibrating feeder. An advanced Metso IC700 control and monitoring system with ultrasonic level sensor automatically adjusts feed rate for peak productivity.
A new hydraulic system, coupled with an environmentally friendly, low-emission Cat C9.3 Tier IV or C9 Tier III engine and high-inertiaflywheels, offers fuel efficiency of 4 to 6 gal. (17 to 22 L) per hour on average without compromising process flexibility, safety or durability of the hydraulic drive.
Setting Standards in Mobility
The Lokotrack LT106’s compact dimensions and agility on tracks mean lower transport costs between and within crushing sites. The chassis design, with good clearance on both ends, enables safe and easy loading onto a trailer. The unit is ready for crushing or transport within minutes, due to the feed hopper with a safe hydraulic securing system and radial side conveyor.
