Powerscreen enters arena with Chieftains

The static machine line-up includes the Chieftain 1700X 3 Deck.

Global crushing and screening expert Powerscreen will once again exhibit at Hillhead 2022, the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, which takes place this month (June 21 to 23) in Buxton, UK.

Commenting on the upcoming quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition, Sean Loughran, Powerscreen Business Line Director and General Manager, says: “To say that we are excited to be back doing what we do best at Hillhead would be an understatement. It has certainly been a challenging couple of years – but the team at the factory have been working extremely hard behind the scenes and we are looking forward to sharing the results of this work with those attending Hillhead 2022.”

At the stand, there will be a display of machines and technologies that are very much “in touch with tomorrow”. The static machine line-up includes the game-changing Chieftain 1700X 3 Deck, the latest addition to the highly successful Chieftain range, a high-production HLF75 Orbital Conveyor and the new Titan 2300, the flagship of the new Titan range of machines which has been turning heads since its debut at the end of 2021.

On the technology side, there will be a showcase of innovative digital solutions and insight into alternative powering offerings which will play an important role in preserving the planet.

At the demo area in the rock processing area, Powerscreen will showcase three working machines: Premiertrak 450, Trakpactor 480SR and Chieftain 2100XE.

Neil Robinson, Powerscreen Product and Applications Manager, says: “Pretty much everything on display at Hillhead 2022 is the result of a collaborative effort between our team members, dealers and customers. It’s great to be interacting face-to-face again and we look forward to seeing some familiar faces (and some new) at the Powerscreen stand during the show.”

Late last year, Powerscreen launched the new Titan range of secondary scalping screens that provide a cost-effective solution in high-volume, smaller-sized or recycling applications.

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

Loughran comments:  “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 2300, which will be on display at Hillhead, 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 1,500 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.

As with all Powerscreen screens, the heart of the machine is within the screenbox itself.

Robinson 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, uniquely designed to be fully regulatory compliant, he adds.

Hybrid Dual Power is also available on the Titan 2300, being powered using standard diesel or connected to an external electricity supply once the machine has been set up.

The side conveyors are standardised at 1,050 mm plain belts, with chevron belts also available if required. With a generous stockpiling height, the plant is fully customisable both in the field and from the factory with conveyors that can be reversed, can be discharged on the same side, or can be converted to a two-way split. To cater for the recycling market, there is an option for magnetic head drums on all three conveyors to carry the metallic material back down the conveyor and away from the stockpile. The tail conveyor features a 1,600-mm chevron belt, the widest in the Powerscreen range, with a combination of impact slips and rollers as standard to remove the need for full length skirting and reduce the power draw of the conveyor.

The large tracks of the Titan 2300 ensure a stable working platform but has a high tracking speed to allow the highest versatility onsite.

Powerscreen is the largest brand within the Materials Processing business segment of Terex Corporation and is world-renowned for manufacturing and supporting market-leading crushing, screening and conveying equipment.
