Keestrack electric drive technologyPublished 25/3 at 14:43
Keestrack is said to now offer one the most versatile ranges of hybrid and plug in solutions in mobile processing technology.
This applies to its screening plants, stockpile conveyors and to mobile track mounted crushers, with the company recognising the huge saving potentials and operational advantages of electric drives for highly flexible track mounted mobile processing. Keestrack’s introduction of such technology goes back to 2012, with the first diesel electric classifier being introduced. This was followed in 2013 by the first hybrid scalper and the first hybrid crushers with electrified conveyors, followed by electric crusher drives.
Today, Keestrack offers 80% of its total product line as diesel electric hybrid variants, with 75% of them with fully electric plug in systems. Depending on technology, type of application and production capacities, customer requirements from the equipment are quite different, but are clearly related to the specific additional investment for the hybrid or all electric system options. According to Keestrack there is a 10-15 % higher initial investment for stackers and screeners, and 15-20 % for large mobile crushers, but the company believes that the additionally investment costs are more than justified by operational savings.
Keestrack will be exhibiting its offering at bauma 2019: Outdoor area North, Stand: FN1017 / 1.
