Mid-size tracked jaw crusher adds power, production, and crushing performance to company’s line-up
NORTHERN Ireland-based Screencore have announced the launch of their latest development, the Screencore XJ Dual-Power tracked jaw crusher.
From their base in Coalisland, Screencore have, in a relatively short time, developed a range of modern mobile crushing, screening, stockpiling and pugmill solutions. The company’s latest offering is its next-level tracked jaw, the XJ Dual-Power jaw crusher, which adds power, production capability and crushing performance to the line-up.
‘In line with our design philosophy, the dual-power XJ comes packed with a range of user-friendly features including remote control feeder and remote unblock facility, as well as hydraulic fold-and-lock Hardox hopper sides,’ said Screencore’s Ciarán Ryan.
‘While all our models are available in dual-power format, our crushers (including the smaller XL model) come with this feature built-in, offering several distinct advantages over traditional diesel/hydraulic crushers, not least of which is a miserly fuel consumption in single-digit litres per hour.
‘Environmentally, the XJ checks all the boxes including both the ‘Zero Emissions’ box with its plug-in ability and the ‘Low Noise’ box. We believe that the XJ raises the productivity bar substantially for mid-sized crushers.’
The new Screencore XJ is a diesel-electric 1,000mm x 650mm (40in x 27in) jaw crusher designed for the processing of minerals and recycling construction materials in a compact and easily transportable form. The powerful machine is based on the same principles of ease of operation and quick set-up time as other members of the growing Screencore range.
Weighing 29.5 tonnes, the XJ’s innovative features include a jaw level sensor, electric plug in, push-button hydraulic CSS wedge adjustment and a bolted mainframe jaw construction. In addition, for inner city material recycling operations, the crusher is equipped with a dust-suppression system, overband magnet and optional deflector plate.
‘The XJ represents the culmination of several years of customer feedback and extensive research to incorporate the best features demanded by customers from a mid-sized tracked jaw crusher. We have taken the feedback on board to deliver what we believe is a game changer as it combines productivity with environmental performance.
‘With its low transport height of just over 3m, length of 13.6m, and rapid set-up time, the XJ can be easily moved between sites for maximum operational flexibility, making it ideal for rental companies and businesses with a number of production sites,’ concluded Mr Ryan.
