Powerscreen, a leading providers of mobile crushing and screening equipment, will host its global launch of the new electrically driven Warrior 1400XE mobile heavy duty screen at Bauma 2016.

The Warrior 1400XE builds on the success of the standard Warrior 1400X model launched two years ago, with its single shaft, high amplitude 3.6m x 1.25m screenbox and a chassis riser option for extra stockpiling capacity.

The main benefit of the Warrior 1400XE is the variety of power options available. It can be self-powered with its own 72kVA generator, or be connected to a mains electricity supply for even further reductions in cost of ownership.

The delivery of the electric version, with its output capacity of up to 500t/h not only meet the preference of select operators customers, but also opens up the possibility of running the machine indoors, due to its extremely low noise rating.

Interestingly, the Warrior 1400XE can even be powered by the electricity generated by other Powerscreen machines, like the, high-powered Premiertrak 600, with a barely noticeable effect on the crusher fuel consumption.

This has the added benefit of eliminating the engine maintenance on the Warrior.

In regions of the world with 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.

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.

Colin Clements, Powerscreen Global Product Line Director notes: “This is a very important year in Powerscreen’s history. In 2016 we mark 50 years of power and success and what better way to start the celebrations than with a global machine launch at bauma on the industry’s largest stage.

“Our team of crushing and screening experts look forward to meeting new and existing customers at the show to share how our equipment and features can add real value to their businesses.”

Oliver Donnelly, product manager for Powerscreen, added: “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.

“We are excited about the low running costs, and to have produced a machine where customers will see dramatic savings in the costs associated with maintenance and servicing. Versatility has definitely not been compromised.”
