Electrically driven mobile screening with Warrior 1400XE

first_imgPowerscreen will host its global launch of the new electrically driven Warrior 1400XE mobile heavy duty screen at Bauma 2016. Product Manager for Powerscreen, Oliver Donnelly, explains some of the thinking behind the new model. “The electrically driven Warrior 1400XE shows our response to customer demand and our commitment to embracing a more environmentally aware approach to innovation.”He adds: “This latest development utilises a combination of highly efficient electrical components and clever design to deliver the lowest possible cost for every tonne of material processed through the machine. While we are excited about the low running costs, we are proud to have produced a machine where customers will also quickly see dramatic savings in the costs associated with maintenance and servicing. Versatility has definitely not been compromised.”The Warrior 1400XE has been designed to meet the needs of customers for whom electricity is a preferred power source and opens up the possibility to run the machine indoors. It can be powered by electricity generated by other Powerscreen models such as the Premiertrak 600. The Warrior 1400XE builds on the success of the standard Warrior 1400X model with its single shaft, high amplitude 3.6 m x 1.25 m screenbox and the chassis riser option giving excellent stockpiling capacity. It also has several important service and maintenance features including the Powerscreen “Stay-Clean” system under the feeder and a jack-up screen system allowing easy access for screen media changes. Depending on feed material the output capacity for this machine is up to 500 t/h.The main benefit of the Warrior 1400XE is the variety of power options available. It can be self-powered with its own 72 kVA generator, or be connected to a mains electricity supply for even further reductions in cost of ownership. “For customers who understand the advantages of a packaged solution, the Warrior 1400XE can also be powered from an electric drive crusher with a barely noticeable effect on the crusher fuel consumption. This has the added benefit of eliminating the engine maintenance on the Warrior. Similarly in regions of the world where we need to operate in high altitude or in high ambient temperatures, the Warrior 1400XE can be powered as part of a machine train from a single genset which can be oversized to handle any de-rating caused by the operating environment. There are many other scenarios where this machine will be seen as the right solution. For example, the Warrior 1400XE is more suited to running indoors than a conventional diesel-hydraulic machine and the extremely low noise levels will also be advantageous in many circumstances.”last_img
