Powerscreen, one of the world’s leading providers of mobile crushing and screening equipment, hosted its global launch of the new electrically driven Warrior 1400XE mobile heavy-duty screen at bauma 2016. From April 11–17, 2016, Powerscreen exhibited the mammoth Premiertrak 600 jaw crusher alongside the new screening model at the Terex booth FM711.
Commenting on the lineup, Colin Clements, Powerscreen Global Product Line Director said, “This is a very important year in Powerscreen’s history. In 2016, we mark 50 years of power and success and what better way to start the celebrations than with a global machine launch at bauma on the industry’s largest stage. Our team of crushing and screening experts look forward to meeting new and existing customers at the show to share how our equipment and features can add real value to their businesses.”
Product Manager for Powerscreen, Oliver Donnelly, explains some of the thinking behind the new model. “The electrically driven Warrior 1400XE shows our response to customer demand and our commitment to embracing a more environmentally aware approach to innovation. This latest development utilizes a combination of highly efficient electrical components and clever design to deliver the lowest possible cost for every tonne of material processed through the machine. While we are excited about the low running costs, we are proud to have produced a machine where customers will also quickly see dramatic savings in the costs associated with maintenance and servicing. Versatility has definitely not been compromised.”
Powerscreen Warrior 1400XE Electrically Driven Screen
The Warrior 1400XE has been designed to meet the needs of customers for whom electricity is a preferred power source and opens up the possibility to run the machine indoors. It can be powered by electricity generated by other Powerscreen models eg. the Premiertrak 600. The Warrior 1400XE builds on the success of the standard Warrior 1400X model with its single shaft, high amplitude 3.6 m x 1.25 m (12 ft. x 4.5 ft.) screenbox and the chassis riser option giving excellent stockpiling capacity. It also has several important service and maintenance features including the Powerscreen “Stay-Clean” system under the feeder and a jack-up screen system allowing easy access for screen media changes. Depending on feed material the output capacity for this machine is up to an impressive 500 tph (551 US tph.)
The main benefit of the Warrior 1400XE is the variety of power options available. It can be self-powered with its own 72kVA generator, or be connected to a main electricity supply for even further reductions in cost of ownership. For customers who understand the advantages of a packaged solution, the Warrior 1400XE can also be powered from an electric drive crusher with a barely noticeable effect on the crusher fuel consumption. This has the added benefit of eliminating the engine maintenance on the Warrior. Similarly in regions of the world where there is a need to operate in high altitude or in high ambient temperatures, the Warrior 1400XE can be powered as part of a machine train from a single gen-set which can be oversized to handle any de-rating caused by the operating environment.
There are many other scenarios where this machine will be seen as the right solution. For example, the Warrior 1400XE is more suited to running indoors than a conventional diesel-hydraulic machine and the extremely low noise levels will also be advantageous in many circumstances.
Powerscreen Premiertrak 600 Jaw Crusher
The ground-breaking Powerscreen Premiertrak 600 is a high performance primary jaw crushing plant which is easy to set up, versatile and engineered for quarrying, demolition and mining applications that require high production capabilities. At the heart of the Premiertrak 600 is a 1,200 mm x 820 mm (47 in. x 32 in.) modern jaw chamber incorporating a robust construction with many user-friendly features, such as a fully hydraulic CSS range of 75-200 mm, (3–8 in.) and a reversing system to clear blockages quickly for increased uptime. The aggressive stroke and high inertia flywheels ensure high production rates and excellent reduction ratios.
The machine can produce up to 600 tph (661 US tph) and has a proven track record of excellent performance by crushing some of the hardest rock in the world with ease in Finland, Sweden and Germany.
Underlining the ease of set-up Ed O’Donohue, an operator in Ireland says, “When the machine first arrived, we were hugely impressed with the modern design and robust construction. For a machine in that class range at more than 70 tonnes, we expected it to be quite complicated to set up and get operational, but in fact the opposite was true. The machine was crushing within minutes of being tracked off the transport truck!”
The diesel-hydraulic and diesel-electric variants of the Premiertrak 600 have been designed and constructed to deliver maximum production and performance with increased uptime and low running costs. The high capacity jaw is fed by a vibrating grizzly feeder with variable speed control and a large grizzly area to maximise removal of fine material enabling maximum wear life of jaw plates within the crusher chamber. The bypass chute is also fitted with wear-resistant liners as standard, and incorporates an adjustable five-position deflector plate to divert material to either the product or side conveyors.
