Metso launches My Plant Planner for plant design


“We are really excited about My Plant Planner. Our goal is to help our customers easily test different configurations and operating conditions to see how they affect process performance. The tool allows you to either design and simulate a new crushing and screening plant in 3D, or test how upgrading your current equipment can improve performance, ”said Guillaume Lambert, vice president of systems crushing plant at Metso, in a press release.

Simplified installation design

My Plant Planner includes unique features and information to help plan optimized crushing and screening circuits and allows users to download a detailed report on the design of their plants.

The tool is based on Metso’s proprietary software. My Plant Planner also makes it possible to design and simulate crushing and screening circuits in three dimensions. The configurator makes it easy to predict the power consumption of the system and see its footprint – this is a feature exclusive to My Plant Planner.

With the tool, users can select different crushers, screens and conveyors and identify bottlenecks to understand where additional capacity is needed.

Factors such as capacity, load, and power consumption are updated in real time as the circuit is designed and parameters are updated. At any time, a report is available for download, which includes all the details on the design of the plant.

Metso is a leading industrial company providing equipment and services for the sustainable processing and circulation of natural resources in the mining, aggregates, recycling and process sectors.
