Washing Systems (TWS) today announced the release of their Dual Power control
system available on all versions of the Terex M-Range Wash Plant. 

TWS product line director, Sean Loughran commented, “For the past few years there has been
an increasing focus on energy efficiency and alternative improved methods of
running mobile machinery. Traditionally Diesel-Hydraulic drive systems have been
used for both machine movement and operation, resulting in significant fuel
costs. We decided it was time to offer our customers a better alternative.”

The alternatives
to a diesel-hydraulic system are either all-electric or electric-hydraulic systems.
However, it is fundamental to the success of mobile equipment to easily move
the machines around sites or from one site to another, under their own power
source.

The
Terex Dual Power system consists of both Diesel-Hydraulic and
Electrical-Hydraulic power drives. This allows the customer to start, transport
and operate the machine using the standard diesel engine. Once in position, and
if a suitable electrical power source is available, the machine can be simply
plugged into the electricity supply and the machine will operate using the
electrical-hydraulic power drive, utilizing a more efficient system and
resulting in significantly reduced running costs. If the plant needs to be
moved, the customer can simply unplug, start the engine and move the machine to
the desired location.

The
Dual Power option is available now on the Terex M1400, M1700 and M2100 Mobile
Rinser plants.
