380 Dual DrivePublished 12/9 at 13:16
Screencore’s latest addition to its range of mobile and tracked stockpilers has been designed to provide excellent 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 enables 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 has 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, Screencore has added to its flexible cost-effective environmentally friendly range with the introduction of stockpilers that can run electrically or hydraulically.
Eco friendly efficiency
The key feature of the 24m 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 groundbreaking 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 intends to add to its range of Dual Drive stockpilers in the near future, as well as continue to offer the Dual Power functionality to all its product offerings.
