Global alliance for Powerscreen and TEREX Pegson

Powerscreen and TEREX Pegson used this year’s Hillhead exhibition to officially announce their new distribution, sales and marketing alignment – a strategic move involving both companies’ global distribution channels, sales teams, technical product specialists and marketing functions.

According to Geoff Beattie, international sales manager for Powerscreen and TEREX Pegson, the alignment makes strategic sense as both companies are essentially serving the same customer base. ‘The decision to align the distribution of the two companies’ respective product lines will give distributors a greater ability to offer mutual customers a more comprehensive and focused service,’ he explained.

‘Likewise, alignment of the joint sales and marketing teams will help improve customer focus and service levels to end-users and distributors by providing a single point of contact. This in turn will make the companies easier to do business with, increase the speed of response, and provide a co-ordinated focus on new markets and new product opportunities,’ he said.

To spearhead the launch of this new global alignment, Hillhead 2007 provided a world working demonstration premiere for four new machines – the Chieftain 2100X, Chieftain 1700 and H5163 horizontal screener from Powerscreen, and the XV350 vertical-shaft impact crusher from TEREX Pegson. Plans were also announced at the show for the introduction of a further six mobile crushers and three mobile screens in 2008.

TEREX Pegson XV350

The latest development from TEREX Pegson – the XV350 – features the well-proven TEREX Canica 2050 DG vertical-shaft impactor (VSI). Driven by a 438hp Caterpillar C-13 engine via a self-adjusting HFO clutch with a wedge belt drive through a countershaft assembly, the VSI is fitted with an interchangeable shoe and anvil arrangement that offers a wide variety of configurations depending on the requirements of the application. The speed of the rotor can be varied from 880 rev/min to 1,750 rev/min.

The XV350 is fed by a 1.3m wide variable-speed inclined feed belt, which can be hydraulically raised and lowered for transportation purposes. The plant accepts a maximum feed size of up to 102mm and offers a maximum throughput of up to 350 tonnes/h, depending on the application. The output from the VSI is fed on to a 1m wide product conveyor with a 3.46m discharge height.

Control of the XV350 is via a state-of-the-art touch screen control panel and an umbilical device is used for tracking speed and direction.

For on-site mobility, the plant is mounted on a heavy-duty crawler undercarriage with 500mm wide track pads for maximum traction and optimum operational stability. Spray bars with atomizer nozzles for dust suppression at the crusher mouth, product conveyor feed and discharge end are included among the standard specifications.

Powerscreen Chieftain 2100X

The new Chieftain 2100X is an upgraded version of the successful Chieftain 2100. The unit is available as a two- or three-deck model and features a 14% larger screen area on the bottom deck, pushing the screening capability of the 2100X significantly higher than the 2100 model.

Key features of the Chieftain 2100X include: a quick set-up time of under 30min; an adjustable, high-amplitude, two-bearing screen action, which allows material to be exposed to different amplitudes and G forces, thereby helping to separate material into the various specifications required; hydraulic screen angle adjustment, which permits variation in the rate of travel over the screen deck in order to achieve the cleanest product in difficult applications; an oversize auxiliary stockpile conveyor that folds hydraulically and is transported with the machine; full walkways giving access to three sides of the screen for ease of maintenance and screen mesh changes; and a screen box that can use meshes from the Chieftain 2100.

Powerscreen Chieftain 1700

The new Powerscreen Chieftain 1700, which has been developed as a highly mobile two- and three-deck model to give up to six product separations, has been specifically designed to fit into the mid-range bracket between the Chieftain 1400 and the Chieftain 2100. The unit on show at Hillhead was a Rinser version of the Chieftain 1700, suitable for applications requiring washed aggregate.

Like the new 2100X model, the Chieftain 1700 also offers a quick set-up time of under 30min; an adjustable, high-amplitude, two-bearing screen action; hydraulic screen angle adjustment; and full access walkways to three sides of the screen.

The unit also features four integral hydraulically folding stockpile conveyors as well as a transverse power unit for greater access to the engine compartment for ease of maintenance. In addition, the screen box on the Chieftain 1700 can utilize meshes from the Chieftain 1400.

Powerscreen H5163

The highly mobile Powerscreen H5163, which utilizes tried and tested horizontal screen technology, has been added to the Powerscreen H range to provide a cost-effective solution on contracts that require a smaller output than the Powerscreen H6203. The H5163 can process up to 600 tonnes/h, compared with the H6203’s 800 tonnes/h (depending on the application), while still possessing all the advantages of the larger model, including its effectiveness as a scalping unit and its ability to produce high-specification products.

Like its bigger brother, the H5163 has four integral folding stockpile conveyors for flexibility and quick set up on site, as well as wide walkways that give access to all sides of the screen for ease of maintenance and screen mesh changes.
