Tracked impact crusher to process coal in the far North

The new impact crusher will help meet the increasing demand for coal production.

The mine site is in a remote area and operates 365 days a year; hence, service and spare parts availability are critical. The Trakpactor is processing run of mine coal, with an anticipated end product of -50mm.

The Trakpactor 550 horizontal shaft impact crusher will provide aggregate producers with a unit in the mid-to-large tracked range.

Like its cousin the Premiertrak 400, the sleek and modern shape of the Trakpactor 550 belies the machine’s robust and heavily engineered chassis and sub-structures.

From the feeder through to the product conveyor, the 55-tonne Trakpactor 550, with side conveyor and magnet, has been designed to promote an easy and efficient flow of material, to minimise potential material build-up and ensure maximum uptime.

{{quote-A:R-W:300-Q:"The new impact crusher will help meet the increasing demand for coal production."}}An optional 2.1m long pre-screen unit with large open area allows the maximum amount of fines to be removed, maximising production, minimising wear costs and contributing to remarkably low cost per tonne performance. It has an output potential of up to 500 tonnes per hour.

The new Terex chamber design, which has been rigorously developed and tested for performance and durability, incorporates features such as a hydraulic inlet lid and automatic adjustment system for ease of use by the operator, while an auto-rotation system for blow bar changes is indicative of Powerscreen’s focus on machine safety.

Like all Powerscreen crushers, the Trakpactor 550 comes with the patented Pulse Remote Monitoring telematics system as standard.

The fleet management system provides crushing and screening equipment owners and operators with access to valuable data, which can help improve machine operation, increase uptime and allow in-depth reporting and fleet management.

The unit’s other benefits include:

  • A double-deck grizzly feeder with under-screen.

  • A Terex impact crusher with hydraulic overload protection.

  • A four-bar rotor with twin apron design.

  • Crusher speed variation through a programmable logic controller system.

  • A modular conveyor with a raise/lower facility to aid clearance of rebar.

  • A chamber drive via clutch and a highly fuel-efficient direct drive system.

  • A full length “under belt” conveyor.

  • An efficient load-sensing hydraulic system.

  • A Terex design underpan.

  • Low level battery access.

  • A designated hydraulic carbine.
