Application Summary

The key information we wanted to gain from the test site was how a Powerscreen Chieftain 2200 compared to a Powerscreen Chieftain 2100X (which the customer already owned). In the customers original setup they were using their Chieftain 2100X to screen out a 14mm product, a 10mm product, a 6mm product and a waste dust product. To create these products within the required specification they often needed secondary screening. The Powerscreen Chieftain 2200 was brought into site and setup to the customers preference for testing. At this site in Ballynahinch, a Powerscreen Chieftain 2200 screened ‘Greywacke’ rock.

• Chieftain 2200 increased production by 15-20% over Chieftain 2100X
• Chieftain 2200 increased the efficiency of the screen producing better quality aggregates than the Chieftain 2100X
• Improved fines removal using Chieftain 2200
