Processing equipment supplier ELB Equipment has released an ultra-efficient three shaft screen – Powerscreen Warrior 2100 – which is capable of dealing with overburden for use in rehabilitation or to stockpile materials as a saleable by-product of mining.
ELB Equipment national sales manager Heath Dickson says the new Powerscreen Warrior 2100 is able to reduce processing cycles by dealing with unprocessed overburden and significantly shorten production times in the separation of materials either for rehabilitation or as saleable commodities. Its efficient handling of materials and economical powerplant derives further savings for miners or contractors on site.
Dickson adds that the machine is specially designed for work alongside mining operations in different terrains and has flexible screening options and generous stockpile heights to accommodate a range of loading types. It also offers quick setup times and an improvement with quick screen media changes when required.
“Being able to effectively screen overburden reduces the requirement to blast, eliminating the associated environmental impact while also saving time and money. “We can now use overburden material and turn it into a valuable product.”
The Warrior 2100 uses the manufacturers’ triple shaft technology, which was first developed for the successful Warrior 2400 screen, which is used in South Africa and globally. This triple shaft technology is unique to the Powerscreen’s heavy-duty mobile screen, with the 4.8 m × 1.5 m screen box effective and efficient while maintaining exceptional throughput productivity.
Dickson explains that the extreme screening acceleration provides the Warrior 2100 screen with improved capabilities over its class rivals, especially in sticky scalping applications. With amplitudes and accelerations in excess of 16 mm and 6 g respectively, the Warrior 2100 triple shaft screen is more prolific at removing and breaking up clay materials than any of its class rivals.
The machine is designed with economy in mind, with reduced fuel consumption being offered through a lower engine running speed of 1 800 rpm and enhanced hydraulics.
“With media solutions which include Bofor Grizzly, Finger Modules, Punch Plate and new 3D Punch Plate, the Warrior 2100 screen is extremely efficient in scalping, screening and recycling applications. It also boasts impressive mobility with a two-speed tracking system as standard,” he concludes.
