Extending an already long-standing relationship with its customer, FLSmith said it recently delivered a trio of its Top Service Design (TSUV) gyratory crushers to a South American copper mine.
The new order allows FLSmidth to overhaul existing equipment with newer crusher technologies to boost efficiency for the leading copper miner, the name of which the supplier did not disclose.
The order is valued at approximately DKK 200 million (US$28.1 million) and was booked in Q3 2023; it is expected to be delivered during 2024. The order includes the overhaul of three existing gyratory crushers, which were originally also supplied by FLSmidth, with three improved and more efficient gyratory crushers with the improved TSUVs.
“By installing these new gyratory crushers, the customer will benefit from increased efficiency as well as safer and simpler maintenance. Two of the crushers will be installed in the existing foundations of the old crushers. This will minimize construction costs, while also limiting the environmental impact from the replacements,” FLSmidth officials said.
