Transportation of grinding mill feed chutes is a critical part of maintenance procedures such as mill relining. The Mill Equipment Transporter (MET) is a specialized mobile unit for the safe and reliable transportation of feed chutes and other challenging loads.
The combination of independently driven wheels and independently controlled rear steering enables the MET to turn on the spot. The pivoting rear axle ensures that all four wheels are always in contact with the deck, while the large rubber tires optimize load distribution.
Built-in safety systems ensure that loads are kept within the unit’s rated capacity while monitoring the load’s center of gravity to ensure stability. The multi-language display makes it easy for operators to monitor the machine’s status and review any system alerts.
- Protects personnel from unnecessary risk due to load instability or unexpected machine movement
- Provides feedback during operation with machine status and other information shown on a user-friendly display
- Compatible with smaller mill deck designs than traditional feed chute transporters
- Backed by comprehensive after-sales support via Outotec’s global service network
“Outotec’s mill reline equipment product range is built on a drive to innovate in relining safety and technology and the MET is a great example of this – its novel steering system and suite of safety features will enable new levels of safety, efficiency, and convenience in feed-chute transportation,” says Jared Le Cras, Technical Product Manager, Mill Reline Equipment, Grinding business line.
