Crushers & Screens

New Titan range packs much punch

The Titan 1300 has a compact footprint for ease of transport.

Powerscreen, the world’s leading provider of mobile crushing and screening equipment, has launched Titan, a new range of secondary scalping screens that provide a cost-effective solution in high-volume, smaller-sized, or recycling applications.

The Titan range, which includes three models – Titan 600, Titan 1300 and Titan 2300 – is a simplification of Powerscreen’s high-performing Warrior range, using key features popular in the Warrior machines and tailoring them to a different section of the market at an attractive price point.

Sean Loughran, Business Line Director of Powerscreen, explains: “As we continue to review the global market, we are seeing a split in the applications in which our Warrior range is being used. While some are screening large-sized materials, others are being used as secondary scalpers, such as after a crusher, or in the recycling market –screening topsoil, construction and demolition (C&D) waste and biomass materials. The Titan range has been specifically designed with the customer, for the customer, as a more cost-effective machine to cater for those secondary or recycling screening applications. It has both a range of features and unrivalled performance that will increase the bottom line of any of its owners.”

The Titan 1300 packs a punch while having a compact footprint for ease of transport, he says. Comprising an extra-large capacity twin-drive feeder at the rear of the machine with an 1,100-mm feeder belt, the feeder comes with hydraulically folding extensions to allow for side loading of the machine. It can withstand heavy loads due to having impact bars under the belt in place of impact rollers, and has a folding rear door to allow for maximum versatility.

The highly aggressive screenbox has an impressive total screening area of 10 sq m. Complete with a variable angle to allow for tailoring of the machine to various applications, the screen also has a lift-up functionality at discharge to ensure quick and efficient mesh changes, of which there is a huge range available as well as other media including punch plate, 3D punch plate and finger screen, he states.

“Side conveyors have wide fines belts and excellent stockpiling height to rival any other comparable machine on the market,” Loughran states. “A single-lever set-up results in a very quick set-up time, and while the side conveyors can be configured as either standard or fully reverse from the factory, they can also be fully configured onsite to allow both conveyors out of the same side of the machine. Each conveyor has its own independent speed control, to tailor each to its loading.”

The Titan 2300 is a completely new machine to Powerscreen in terms of concept and design, encompassing the largest belt feeder in any of the Powerscreen range at 1500 mm, with twin gear box drive and a combination of impact bars and impact rollers for optimum power usage. It also has the steepest hopper ever designed by Powerscreen to enable ease of emptying without bridging, with an eye specifically on the recycling market.

The body of the hopper is manufactured with wear-resistant steel and a rear folding door to take a crusher feed. A low-speed feeder is fitted as standard, with a medium speed option for low-density material which, while sacrificing some torque, can run at up to 50 per cent faster than standard, he points out.

As with all Powerscreen screens, the heart of the machine is within the screenbox itself. Neil Robinson, Product and Applications Manager at Powerscreen, explains: “Using our expertise gained from our last few projects such as the Warrior 2100, the Chieftain 2200 and the Chieftain 1700X, together with a mix of computer-based design and analysis and real-world testing, we have crafted a screenbox that will match and exceed any similar-sized single shaft screen in the market. Using a high-specification drive, the machine is able to take on a wide range of applications from smaller direct feeder, secondary feed after a crusher to light weight recycling market.”

The machine also has an adjustable screen angle, with media options including mesh (both woven and welded), punch plate, 3D punch plate, finger screens and finger and punch plate combination.

The Titan 2300 has full access walkways down both sides of the screenbox, designed to be fully regulatory compliant.
