powerscreenopendayOctober 28, 2013, Dungannon, Northern Ireland – Customers
and distributors from over 21 countries attended the 2013 Powerscreen Open Day
held on 3rd and 4th October at Arden Brickworks near Birmingham, UK. The event saw Powerscreen unveil three new machines – the Premiertrak
300 jaw crusher, the Trakpactor 320SR impact crusher and the Warrior 2100
screen as well as showcase some well-established products.

Premiertrak 300 HA
Hydrostatic VGF jaw crusher

The Premiertrak 300 jaw crusher featured the new optional
hydrostatic drive system allowing it to reverse and unblock or run continuously
in reverse for asphalt applications. It is configured to run at low engine RPM
resulting in strong fuel efficiency and low noise emissions, ideal for urban
sites. The Premiertrak 300 crusher was configured with the Vibrating Grizzly
Feeder (VGF) set with 50mm bofor bar on the top deck and 30mm mesh on the
bottom. The closed side setting (CSS) was set to 40mm while running in both
asphalt and recycled concrete applications.

Other benefits of the machine include: large clearances in
the bypass chute to improve material flow and reduce the chance of blockages in
sticky material; a large under crusher clearance and full tunneling to reduce
the chance of blockage due to re-bar build up; and a hydraulically lowering
conveyor offers excellent access to reduce downtime should a blockage occur.

Rapid set-up times are possible with all folding done
hydraulically and no need to work at height so the machine can be moved very
quickly. Control is via an easy to use PLC screen control system. Jaw speed and
CSS can be changed by a single button, which allows the machine to be adjusted
to suit the application very quickly with no tools required.

Trakpactor 320SR
impact crusher

The Trakpactor 320SR is a mid-sized horizontal impact
crusher redesigned with some key enhancements to offer operators and
contractors excellent reduction and high consistency of product shape for
performance in quarry and recycling applications. The plant is capable of
working in the most demanding environments and features rapid set-up time,
fuel-efficient direct drive system and excellent output potential of up to 320
tph (352 US tph). The plant features a recirculating conveyor, which raises for
transport, allowing more ground clearance under the machine when moving on site
and loading for transport. One key feature of the Trakpactor 320SR crusher is
the quick-detach post-screen section, which converts it to a standard
Trakpactor 320 unit. This provides operators with outstanding versatility to
use the machine in a variety of different applications. 

Warrior 2100 screen

The Warrior 2100 screen has been engineered to include the
proven Triple Shaft technology first developed for the successful Warrior 2400,
a model, which is now well established in markets worldwide. This Triple Shaft
technology, unique to Powerscreen in heavy-duty mobile screens, is designed so
the 16’ x 5’ screen box is highly effective and efficient while maintaining
exceptional throughput productivity. The extreme screening acceleration offers
the Warrior 2100 improved capabilities over its class rivals, especially in
sticky scalping applications. During the event, the machine processed mixed
demolition waste which included grass, soil, concrete, wood and asphalt, and
was configured with a combined top deck of 60mm fingers with 60mm punch plate
and a bottom deck of 40mm mesh.

All three machines will make their North American debut as
part of Powerscreen’s display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
