54 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | November 2014 New & Improved Metso Offers Fleet Management Tools for Lokotrack Mobile Crushing Plants Remote monitoring of crushing data from quarries is becoming a crucial element in mobile crushing and screening applications. Metso offers complete fleet management and automation systems, designed for all Lokotrack range mobile applications. Metso Fleet Management system consists of an IC process control system, a satellite uplink and a Metso DNA Report portal. It collects and presents a daily overview of the operat- ing Lokotrack fleet including effective operating hours, fuel consumption, location of the units, alarms and parameter changes. Metso IC process control system, a standard feature in all Lokotrack crushing plants, collects crusher data continuously. With the new fleet management tool, this information is being sent from Lokotrack uplink via satellite daily to be used in Internet portal. The crushing data can be accessed via Internet. Parameter changes have direct effect on crushing and screening process. Data and parameter changes are collected by the Metso DNA Report portal and data can be accessed anywhere via the Internet. In the Report portal, users can compare data between the units, days or weeks. Repeating alarms due to the misuse of the unit cannot be hidden anymore. Using the portal, there is the means to guide operators to use Lokotrack in a proper way.

The L20 features a hydraulically powered vertical mast light tower perfect for illuminating oil and gas exploration applications and drill rig sites, while the 20 kW generator provides power for tools, heaters or a jobsite trailer. The L20 light tower has four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps mounted on a vertical mast that extends to a full height of 25 feet 8 inches in less than 30 seconds. Minimum stowed height is 8 feet. Each lamp easily adjusts with a locking pin system that provides simple, fluid movement. The light head can be adjusted horizontally and verti- cally and each light fixture can be maneuvered independently to provide optimal illumination. The 20 kW generator is powered by an Isuzu 4LE2 direct injected engine, with a single-phase Leroy Somer alternator. This Isuzu engine provides a 14 percent fuel savings over competitive indirect injected engines in this power class. The L20 provides reliable, quiet operation at just 69 dBA.
