Powerscreen celebrate ‘century’ milestone

Powerscreen Warrior 2400 mobile screens

Company delivers new Warrior 2400 mobile screens including 100th production model to Oman

GALFAR Engineering SAOG, one of Oman’s leading infrastructure firms, have purchased several new Warrior 2400 screens from Powerscreen. The contractor had originally requested a scalping plant from General Engineering Services (Oman distributors for Powerscreen) that would provide output capacities ranging from 700 to 900 tonnes/h.

As a result, the experienced team at General Engineering Services recommended the Warrior 2400 model and the customer initially ordered two machines to meet its job requirements.

When production began, Galfar were so satisfied with the mobile screen’s capabilities that they expanded their fleet to include four more units, including the 100th production model of the Warrior 2400.

All six machines are now working at the Al Batinah Expressway road project (phase 1, 45km), where high-quality sub-base is being produced from feed material from a nearby river bed.

The Warrior 2400 screens are configured with a 150mm punch plate on the top-deck and with a 63mm aperture mesh on the bottom-deck, providing three end products. The –63mm fines is used as base rock for road projects, while the mid-size material (–150mm +63mm) is crushed by a wheeled Terex cone crusher and a legacy Terex Pegson 4242SR impactor and sized below 63mm using the attached post-screen.

Meanwhile, the +150mm oversized material is crushed using a jaw, cone and VSI range of crushers working in combination with various screens to make different sized aggregates and manufactured sand. In some instances, the screened oversized material is also used for road pitching work.

A spokesman for Galfar commented: ‘We are very happy with the performance of our plant - each machine is working for up to 20 hours per day and producing high volumes of material. We find that the machines offer a low operating cost per tonne and we know that we can count on rapid local support from General Engineering Services when we need it.’
