More than 450 distributors and customers from 36 countries attended Powerscreen’s World Dealer Conference March 16-19 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Distributors from around the world went to learn how Powerscreen is addressing challenges facing their customers, including the need for higher quality/more closely spec’d products, pressure on efficiency and operating costs, and environmental pressure for cleaner/quieter equipment.
During the event, attendees shared best practices, learning from the manufacturer and each other, and attended hands-on equipment demonstrations. The event featured seminars and conferences, a St. Patrick’s Day evening yacht cruise, Everglades airboat adventure tour, and an extensive demo day display of 19 Powerscreen crushing and screening machines held at the Palm Beach Aggregates quarry site north of Fort Lauderdale. The open day included an exclusive introduction of seven new machines in operation.
Premiertrak 600 mobile jaw crusher features a high performance 47-inch x 32-inch reversible primary jaw. Designed for demolition and hard rock quarrying and mining, it is available as diesel-hydraulic or diesel-electric. Both versions are built for high production with low maintenance and running costs. The model demonstrated has diesel direct drive with a Scania DC13 low-speed engine and advanced hydraulics. The electric version has an oversized genset sufficient to run another plant.
1150 Maxtrak mobile cone crusher is a mid-size version of the 1000 and 1300 Maxtrak models with their same focus on product shaping. It is offered as direct feed or a pre-screen version to achieve higher production with dirty feed. A hydraulic folding system quickly converts to direct feed. Operators have a choice of strokes and three liner options for a variety of applications. The cone accepts an all-in-feed up to 8 inches and is powered by a Scania DC 13 engine.
Chieftain 2200 mobile screen features a patent-pending drive system with four-bearing screen drive for each screen box. This concept builds on the Chieftain 1400 combination of high screen angle and four-bearing drive system. The Chieftain 2200 screen can convert from four-bearing to two-bearing drive for applications in sand and grave or quarry de-dusting at the small bottom deck apertures. It is said to offer optimum performance with even the tightest aggregate specs.
Trakpactor 260SR compact mobile impact crusher is available as standard with no post-screen, or with optional post-screen and recirculating system. Primarily used for recycling and demolition for one-stop production of sized aggregate from raw feed material, it is equally suited as a small primary crusher for quarries. Operator benefits are said to include versatility due to high mobility, rapid setup, and retractable post-screen system.
Warrior 2100 mobile scalping screen includes Powerscreen’s proven triple-shaft technology for high productivity, especially in sticky scalping applications and single-size screening. It is said to offer exceptional performance in aggregates and overburden. Numerous stroke and feed settings allow the Warrior 2100 screen to excel in challenging applications.
Premiertrak 300 HA mobile jaw crusher features a highly aggressive and robust 40-inch x 24-inch crushing chamber. It features low engine RPM for fuel efficiency and low noise. A large bypass chute clearance and full tunnelling enhance material flow and reduce blockage with sticky materials. The hydraulically lowering conveyor offers good access if blockage occurs. It is also available with hydraulic release jaw chamber for difficult recycling applications with tramp metal.
Warrior 600 mobile screen is the smallest Warrior, but with plenty of punch. It makes the Warrior range the widest in the market, with six machine sizes. The Warrior 600 screen is designed for versatility, maneuverability, and ease of transport and setup. It has high strength, high amplitude, two-bearing, 8-foot x 4-foot screenbox with up to 6g acceleration. Fuel consumption is about 1.5 gallons per hour.
