Metso has developed a new housing design that cuts service downtime, facilitates the maintenance of recycling equipment and makes it easier to keep the machinery in top shape. Available for almost every Metso Lindemann shredder model, the new solution enables multiple maintenance operations to be performed conveniently, swiftly and at one time.

The most significant improvement in Metso's new housing model is the detachable front wall. The removable unit provides easier access to wear parts and speeds up the replacement of worn components.

The new housing design also enables several maintenance tasks to be carried out at the same time. With the detachable front wall lifted out of position with a crane, the rotor adjustment and the replacement of wear plates, for instance, can be conveniently handled simultaneously.

Minimizing maintenance downtime in production is achievable by acquiring a second Metso front wall set on stock. This makes it possible to replace the whole front wall and its worn parts immediately, and production is restarted with dispatch. All the required maintenance for the dismantled set then can be done in detail while production is up and running. During the next service break, the maintained set is put back in action.

Metso's new time-saving housing design is suitable for almost all Metso Lindemann shredders. The solution is available as a retrofit for existing middle housing, as part of a complete new middle housing, and as standard for all new Metso Lindemann machines.
