These machines will provide visitors with a fantastic overview of the comprehensive Powerscreen product portfolio.

Premiertrak 300 HA Hydrostatic VGF jaw crusher

The Premiertrak 300 jaw crusher features a new hydrostatic drive system option allowing it to reverse and unblock or run continuously in reverse for asphalt applications. It is designed to run at low engine RPM resulting in excellent fuel efficiency and low noise emissions, ideal for urban sites. The Premiertrak 300 crusher features a Vibrating Grizzly Feeder (VGF) set with 50mm bofor bar on the top deck and 30mm mesh on the bottom. The closed side setting (CSS) can be 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 tunnelling to reduce the chance of blockage due to re-bar build up; and a hydraulically lowering conveyor that 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 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 quickly with no tools required. The Premiertrak 300 crusher is also available with a hydraulic release jaw chamber for difficult recycling applications where additional protection from tramp metal is required. Additional versatility is offered with the lock-off system which configures the HR jaw chamber to operate as a standard HA unit which will not dump.

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 of the most exciting features 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 is engineered to include our 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 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 screen improved capabilities over its class rivals, especially in sticky scalping applications.

With amplitudes and accelerations in excess of 16mm and 6g respectively, the Warrior 2100 triple shaft screen outperforms conventional screens in a multitude of applications including aggregates, overburden, processed ores, topsoil, compost, C&D waste, C&I waste, foundry waste and biomass.

Maxtrak 1150 cone crusher

The range of Powerscreen tracked mobile cone crushers has broadened with the launch of the mid-sized Maxtrak 1150 unit. Targeted at quarry operators and contractors alike, the Maxtrak 1150 model builds upon the success of the Maxtrak 1000 and 1300 models offering unrivalled performance, production and versatility. The crushing action of the Maxtrak 1150 model also delivers the same superb product shaping for which the other Powerscreen cones have become world-renowned. The machine will be offered in two key configurations: a direct feed model and a pre-screen version which enables customers to handle dirty feed material and achieve higher production rates. With a choice of strokes and four liner options which are all compatible with a single upper frame, the Maxtrak 1150 cone crusher can be easily configured for all applications. Feed sizes of up to 205mm are possible into the 225kW cone chamber which is driven directly by a fuel efficient 331kW Scania DC 13 engine that complies to the latest Stage IV emission regulations. One of the most impressive features of the pre-screen model is the patented hydraulic folding system for converting the machine into a direct feed layout in minutes delivering unparalleled flexibility to the end-user.

Premiertrak 600 jaw crusher

The productivity requirements of customers coupled with high expectations have led to the development of the Premiertrak 600 jaw crusher which comes to market in two possible configurations: diesel-hydraulic and diesel-electric. Both versions are designed and constructed to deliver maximum production and performance with minimum downtime and running costs. The diesel-electric machine can be powered directly from an on-site source which further reduces the cost of operation.  At the heart of the Premiertrak 600 crusher, is a 1200mm x 820mm modern jaw chamber incorporating robust construction with many user-friendly features including a fully hydraulic CSS range of 75mm-200mm and a reversing system to clear blockages quickly for increased uptime. The aggressive stroke and high inertia flywheels provide high production rates and excellent reduction ratios. With speed and safety in mind, the Premiertrak 600 crusher can be fully set-up from ground level due to its hydraulic folding and locking hopper system, in combination with the hydraulically lowering product conveyor. Like all other products in our mobile jaw range, the Premiertrak 600 model hosts an array of options which are configurable for each and every possible application.

Chieftain 2100X Biomass screen

The Chieftain 2100X screen is designed for medium to large scale operators who require large volumes of high specification products. The Chieftain 2100X screen is the largest model to feature a high capacity hopper, belt feeder and radio controlled tipping grid. Key features include a patented hydraulically folding recirculating conveyor on the 3 deck version that eliminates the need for a crane on site and a 2 bearing screen with adjustable screen amplitude and hydraulic screen angle adjustment.

Demonstrating the versatility of the machine, the model to be displayed at Hillhead is configured specifically for woodchip and biomass applications, with an oversize transfer conveyor, a main conveyor overband magnet and a magnetic head drum pulley on the side conveyor. Importantly, it also features Dual Power, offering users a choice between diesel and electric power. The complete machine can be driven electrically from generator power or an onsite electricity supply which is often a requirement in wood processing facilities.  This option also helps to avoid fuel price increases and addresses environmental requirements mandated by legislation. Dual Power offers complete flexibility for the machine to work alone in remote locations in diesel mode or as part of a multi-machine line up in electric mode. The operator can choose diesel or electric as the power source through a fully integrated control panel – it is as simple as turning a switch.

Powertrak 750 scalping screen

The Powertrak 750 screen is a multipurpose scalping machine, robustly constructed, and geared towards heavy duty scalping in applications such as blasted rock, overburden and C&D. The lively screening action lends itself equally as well to fine screening applications with materials such as crusher run and topsoil.

The Powertrak 750 screen features a Deutz D914 engine as standard, but can also be supplied with a fuel efficient Stage IV Final compliant Caterpillar C3.4 engine. With a vibrating grid feed-in width of 4.4m (14’ 6”) the machine can easily be fed with an excavator, loading shovel or grab. This coupled with its compact, sleek design and ease of movement makes the Powertrak 750 screener the ultimate choice for contractors, quarry operators and recycling customers.
