Metso Outotec O-Series liners prove successful at an aggregates plant in South Russia

In July 2020, the Maykopskaya Nerudnaya Kompania site in the south of Russia offered to take O-Series wear liners for testing. The site has been in operation for 11 years, and produces crushed stones, sand and gravel-sand mixtures for use in sustainable construction. This crushing and screening plant is located a few kilometers away from the city of Maykop, and has been using solely Metso Outotec equipment since it’s been commissioned. Various Metso Outotec products on site include jaw and cone crushers, as well as screens and conveyors of different modifications.

Due to working together for many years, the Maykopskaya Nerudnaya Kompania site already had a long-established relationship with Metso Outotec. Therefore, the site had sufficient knowledge about our wear and spare products and solutions 

Global Product Manager, EvgenFedchenkojoined Metso Outotec colleagues in Russia to supervise the installation. He calls attention to the importance of utilizing an original equipment manufacturer. 

The competition in this region is quite tough and the customers are accustomed to very low prices, says Fedchenko. “As aOEM company, it is extremely beneficial for us to ensure that everything is correct and worksmoothly. From the detailed design to the profile of each wear part, customers can be guaranteed to have sustainable quality with high availability.”

At the Maykop site, a set of O-Series liners was installed on a Nordberg® HP3™ crusher, which produces crushed stone and gravel of class oneWith trust already built between the two companies, the site was happy to become a reference for a Metso Outotec O-Series trial. 

"We are very considerate to the choice of manufacturers and suppliers of the wear parts," says Konstantin PyatchenkoDeputy of Director in Production & Head of the Quarry. "The quality of parts determines both the productivity of the plant itself and the quality of our final product. The economic benefit of using the O-Series is reflected in the affordability." 

In the south of Russia, customers face an issue regarding the supplied wear parts being incompatible with the coinciding equipment. Problems often arise in attachment points or slightly off dimensions. Due to the incorrect machine work, this leads to more services, thus more time and money for the customer. Metso Outotec has the capability to address these issues, through our distribution partner, YUG Minerals, who offers value added services such as providing supervision, installation, dismantling and maintenance crews”, says Evgeny Fedchenko.

This product is for customers who are looking for something sustainable when it comes to quality, affordable when it comes to price, and reliable with their operation and their safety”, Evgeny continues. “A good support system with a product you can trust, with high quality and Metso Outotec warranty. 

After the success of the trial, the Maykop site has since decided to move forward using Metso Outotec O-Series liners as opposed to the previously used competitor alternatives. 

After calculating the economic component and the price of the kit per hour of operation, we saw a benefit for our company, says Konstantin. The cost of the O-series was lower than the liners purchased earlier. At the same time, the operating time decreased slightly while maintaining quality, because the linings are manufactured at Metso OutotecIt also resulted in a small reduction in the cost of aggregates produced by our company.” 

Metso Outotec worked in collaboration with Yug Minerals, the distributor partner for this project.  

"We have been servicing the plant since its installation and were happy to offer the solution to improve the performance by using the types of linings that are suitable for the needs of this particular enterprise”, says Segrey GurinHead of Service at Yug Minerals. “The calculation of the O-series turned out to be economically profitable without compromising the quality of the end product.”
