Metso has made further investments in its Mesa repair facility in Arizona, in order to optimise safety and broaden service capabilities.

The Mesa facility, which provides repairs and field services while supporting Metso’s Life Cycle Services contracts, recently installed a stress relief oven. This will improve quality control as well as accelerate the turnaround times for clients. Mesa has also invested in other equipment to support the repair of mining screens, LIMS (Wet Low Intensity Magnetic Separator) drums and babbitted bearings for mills.

A screen test stand will allow each screen that is rebuilt at Mesa to be test-run before being sent back out into the field, reducing the potential for issues during installation and start-up. Equipment needed to repair LIMS drums was also put in place last year.
