Powerscreen® dual power screens give their users a choice between diesel and electric power. The additional electric/hydraulic drive system can be connected into an external electricity supply. The choice of an alternative energy source provides an option to avoid recent fuel price increases and addresses environmental requirements mandated by legislation.
The Powerscreen dual power system provides flexibility to address a number of challenges and opportunities, such as in Central Europe where electricity is cheaper than diesel fuel; and in Russia and parts of the USA where only electricity is permitted on sites. There is now a choice of genuine mobile dual power screens with quick and easy setup.
Once positioned onsite and connected to an external electricity source, the unit can be switched to operate on electricity, meaning it will have zero emissions. The track screen retains all the benefits of a mobile machine.
The Powerscreen® dual power mobile screens can operate on diesel fuel oil or on an electricity source; reducing diesel fuel oil consumption, operating costs and depending on set up, may reduce machine downtime due to reduced refueling and engine servicing.
Dual Power is ideal for sites with:
- Any quarry, mining, sand-pit, coal, washing and aggregate processing application where a Powerscreen® screen is used
- Only electricity is permitted
- Electricity is freely available or generated on site
- Complete crushing spreads run using a stationary genset
- Electricity is preferred over diesel fuel
- Electricity is cheaper than diesel fuel
- Diesel fumes are not permitted, e.g. underground
- Environmental, legislative and/or noise constraints are present
- In the event of an electricity shortage, the Powerscreen® dual power screen can continue to run on diesel fuel oil, or vice versa
