Very high drive efficiency & low maintenance requirements
The experience gained from installation and operation of these mills enables us to offer mills of up to 35,000 installed horsepower or more.
Today a single grinding line with a Gearless SAG mill and appropriate ball mills can process over 100,000 mtpd.
- Variable speed capability
- Removal of limits of design power gear and pinion drives are practically limited to about 10,000 hp per pinion. at this time, there is no reasonable gear drive alternative for more than two pinions or above 20,000 hp. the best solution is the Metso gearless mill.
- Very high drive efficiency
- Low maintenance requirements
- Often require less floor space
