Global equipment manufacturer Powerscreen, Northern Ireland, has announced the global launch of its electrically driven Warrior 1400XE mobile heavy-duty screen. The company plans to introduce the new electric screen at Bauma 2016, 11-17 April 2016, in Munich, one of the world’s leading trade fairs for construction, building material and mining machines as well as construction vehicles and equipment.

Colin Clements, Powerscreen global product line director, says, “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.”

Powerscreen Product Manager Oliver Donnelly explains some of the thinking behind the company’s new screen model, saying, “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 utilises 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.”

Donnelly adds, “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 says 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 e.g., the Premiertrak 600. The Warrior 1400XE builds on the success of the standard Warrior 1400X model with its single shaft, high amplitude 3.6-meter-by-1.25-meter screenbox and the chassis riser option giving stockpiling capacity. The machine also has several 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 the Warrior 1400XE machine is up to 500 tonnes per hour (tph) (551 U.S. tph).

A significant benefit of the Warrior 1400XE, Powerscreen says, is the variety of power options available. The screen 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, Powerscreen says the Warrior 1400XE also can be powered from an electric drive crusher with a small effect on the crusher fuel consumption. This has the added benefit of eliminating the engine maintenance on the Warrior, according to the company. Similarly, in regions of the world where it is necessary 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 derating caused by the operating environment.

The Warrior 1400XE is more suited to running indoors than a conventional diesel-hydraulic machine and the extremely low noise levels also will be advantageous in many circumstances, the company says.

The 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,powerscreen warrior electrical screen jaw crusher according to the company. At the heart of the Premiertrak 600 is a 1200-milimeter-by-820-milimeter modern jaw chamber. The aggressive stroke and high inertia flywheels ensure high production rates and reduction ratios, the company says.

The machine can produce up to 600 tph (661 U.S. 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, according to Powerscreen.

Underlining the ease of setup, 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 also is 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.

Powerscreen says it invites Bauma attendees to visit booth FM711 to receive first-hand information on Powerscreen machines and to meet members of the Powerscreen sales and customer support teams and representatives from Powerscreen’s Global Dealer Network.
