PowerscreenÂ® & TEREXÂ® Pegson The worldâ€™s No.1 mobile crushing & screening force at stand 22, Excon 2007, India
Thursday, November 1st, 2007
PowerscreenÂ® and TEREXÂ® Pegson will showcase their latest products at the Excon 2007 exhibition, which is due to be staged from the 14 -18 November at the Bangalore International Exhibition centre, Bangalore, India.
Visitors attending the Excon exhibition will be able to see a wide array of crushing and screening products on Stand 22, including the TEREXÂ® Pegson XA400 tracked jaw crusher, the PowerscreenÂ® Chieftain 1700 and Finesmaster Compact 120.
These new products have been specifically designed to cope with the demands of infrastructure and construction projects. Infrastructure development in roads, railway, ports and urban environments has been identified as a key engine of growth by the Indian government and substantial investment has been planned in these areas in the coming years.
Following the alignment earlier this year of PowerscreenÂ® and TEREXÂ® Pegson sales and marketing teams, both companies have grown in strength to become the global No.1 in mobile crushing and screening products.
The TEREXÂ® Pegson XA400
On display at the exhibition will be a XA400 hydraulic adjust (XA400) track mounted jaw crusher. Designed and built for primary crushing, this versatile crusher can achieve high performance capacities and includes features that are ideal for both quarrying and recycling applications.
The XA400 has a highly aggressive crushing action with hydraulic crusher setting adjustment. The high-swing jaw eases material entry into the crushing chamber and the hydraulic adjustment has been developed to enable crusher setting changes to be made quickly and easily over a wide range. The adjustment is activated without the need to release the draw-back mechanism and this system is particularly suitable for applications where regular jaw setting adjustments are required.
The X400 series is also available as an XR400 version where the hydraulic release has been specifically designed to alleviate problems associated with crusher overload which can be encountered when tramp metal enters the crushing process â€“ particularly prevalent in the recycling of C&D waste. The hydraulic release is fully adjustable, quick and easy to reset and makes blockage clearance a simple process. This saves time and money by allowing the crusher to continue processing with minimal disruption to the task while, at the same time, protecting the jaw mechanism from potential damage.
There are numerous innovative features on the X400 series to improve productivity and enhance maintenance procedures. For example, the feed hopper is constructed from 15mm heavy-duty Hardox for prolonged active life and is hydraulically folding with boltless fixing; there is a newly designed and improved crusher drive access system; an easy access power pack canopy; hydraulic and oil filter changes are only required at 2000 hours intervals; there is also excellent under crusher accessibility for the safe and easy removal of wire with a hydraulic titling conveyor system. The strong I-beam construction of the chassis is designed and built to withstand even the most arduous of conditions and the low ground pressure crawler tracks are site proven for the toughest of terrains.
Driven by a Caterpillar 172kW C9 engine, the new X400 series is PLC controlled for optimum performance with finger-tip actuation and simple, automatic start sequence.
The highly efficient HFO direct drive system engineered into the plant gives remarkably low fuel consumption figures â€“ as little as 22 litres per hour, depending on the application. A new style of vibrating grizzly feeder, with an extended twin cartridge grizzly section, actively discourages pegging and blinding. An improved impact area under the product conveyor, at the crushing discharge point, has been introduced and the hydraulically elevating and lowering product conveyor itself has an increased discharged height for even better stockpiling. For transport, the conveyor can be quickly lowered to reduce the overall height of the plant.
The numerous options on the X400 series include dirt conveyor with a new troughing system, overband magnet, radio remote control and under feeder screen. For additional belt protection on recycling applications, TEREXÂ® Pegson can also offer an optional under crusher flipper plate.
PowerscreenÂ® Chieftain 1700
Taking a prominent position on the stand is the new PowerscreenÂ® Chieftain 1700 which has been developed as a highly mobile 2 & 3 deck model giving up to 6 product separation. It has been specifically designed to fit into the mid range bracket between the Chieftain 1400 and the Chieftain 2100 and offers the following features:
â€¢ Quick set-up time of under 30 minutes;
â€¢ An adjustable high amplitude 2 bearing screen action which can expose material to varying amplitudes and G force, helping to separate material into the various required specifications;
â€¢ Hydraulic Screen Angle adjustment varies the material-travel rate over the screen deck, to achieve the cleanest product in the most difficult of applications;
â€¢ Four integral hydraulically folding stockpile conveyors fold and transport with the machine, removing the need for assisted lifting devises to put the machine into a working mode;
â€¢ Full access walkways give access to 3 sides of the Screen for ease of maintenance and screen mesh change;
â€¢ A transverse power-unit giving greater access to the engine compartment for ease of maintenance;
â€¢ Greater stockpile capacity;
â€¢ The screen box on the Chieftain 1700 has been designed so that it can use meshes from the Chieftain 1400.
PowerscreenÂ® Finesmaster 120 Compact
The PowerscreenÂ® range of Finesmaster sand classification systems are among the most efficient sand dewatering units available on the market. The debut of the Finesmaster 120 Compact shows how popular the Finesmaster Compact range has become. It is a simplified cost-effective, energy conscious alternative to the main PowerscreenÂ® Finesmaster range.
The Compact range has been engineering for quick installation and still combines all the key advantages of the Finesmaster machines such as their ability to dewater sand, with maximum removal of water whilst retaining the maximum amount of fine saleable product. The Finesmaster 120 Compact uses centrifugal force within the cyclone to remove clays, silts and slime from sand to bring it into specification crucial for the construction industries.
PowerscreenÂ® and TEREXÂ® Pegson continue to invest in providing industry with leading product advances. They are committed to manufacturing products which offer both reliability and high performance supported by a leading aftermarket service.
Within excess of 130 dealers worldwide they can provide localised sales, technical and service support to end users. This is backed by competitive leasing solutions structured to compliment the customerâ€™s cash flow, budget and operational requirements.
