New versatile 380 Dual Drive tracked stockpiler capable of running electrically or hydraulically
SCREENCORE’s latest addition to their range of mobile and tracked stockpilers has been designed to provide superior mobility and stockpiling capacity, whilst also providing an eco-friendly, fuel-efficient solution.
The 24m (80ft) Screencore 380 stockpiler comes with the Screencore ‘Dual Drive’ functionality that allows the stockpiler to operate with power provided by a crusher or screen, resulting in significantly less expensive and more environmentally friendly operations, as only one power source is used.
Screencore have for some time produced a range of tracked and wheeled stockpiling conveyors which can be tailored for specific applications. They are designed to be highly transportable and durable, and offer features such as twin drives, check valves and heavy-duty hopper feeders. These have been specifically developed to help construction, recycling, quarrying and surface mining operations, delivering a solution to handle bulk materials on any site.
Screencore’s existing range of stockpilers come with power solutions to suit various customer requirements. Now however, the manufacturer has added to its flexible, cost-effective and environmentally friendly range with the introduction of stockpilers that can run electrically or hydraulically.
The key feature of the 380 Dual Drive lies in its unique conveyor drive system, which can easily switch from an electric drive motor on one side of the conveyor to a hydraulic drive motor on the opposite side. The hydraulic drive is powered from the on-board 55kW Cat engine. This ground-breaking capability empowers operators to choose the most suitable and readily available power source, all while enjoying the convenience of a fully tracked mobile unit.
When connected to the electrical outlet of the Dual-Power Screencore XJ jaw crusher for instance, the stockpiler can run efficiently at virtually zero additional cost, offering a cost-effective solution for materials handling. Moreover, this intelligent integration can be extended to other crushers or screens with spare electrical capacity, eliminating the need for an extra engine and significantly contributing to carbon reduction efforts.
Screencore say they intend to add to their range of Dual Drive stockpilers in the near future, as well as continue to offer the Dual Power functionality on all their product offerings.
‘At Screencore, we are dedicated to driving innovation with a focus on sustainable practices. The 380 Dual Drive is testament to our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions that align with our carbon-reduction objectives. By offering the 380 Dual Drive, we aim to not only enhance operational flexibility for our customers, but also contribute to environmental preservation,’ said Screencore sales director Ciarán Ryan.
