Qualitative and quantitative production in a limited time frame
With the changes in the Government quarry rules and the rising demand for good quality aggregates, there was a need for a solution that could deliver quality aggregates and even enhance production volume with the lowest downtime. Seeing this need, Metso was well equipped to launch its newest product in the industry, the 350 tph Rapid™ plant, with higher production capacity, lower operating costs and advanced automation.
Mr. Aman Sethi, Proprietor, Aman Sethi Group, shared, “If we talk about Bihar or even other states, the mines are auctioned by the Government and are usually given on a 5-year lease to the mine operator. The key here is to mine as much as possible in the given time frame. Even the markets are booming, so the operators need to go for two or even three crushing plants in one mine to produce more; this is a challenge, due to the space constraints in a mine area. This clearly signaled the need for a higher capacity plant that can operate in less space and deliver more in a limited time period.” He added, “Our decision to go with Metso’s 350 tph Rapid™ plant was good, as we are able to get more than 1 lac tonnes of production in a month, on average, and this plant has occupied almost the same space that a 250 tph plant would occupy. Hence, we are producing more in the same amount of space. I feel that this plant has the capacity to deliver even more than 1.25 lac tonnes per month with constant feed from the quarry.”
