Powerscreen has delivered its 100th Warrior 2400 mobile screen to distributor General Engineering Services (Genserv) in Oman. One of Oman’s leading infrastructure companies, Galfar Engineering SAOG, originally requested a scalping plant from Genserv. The customer required machines capable of providing output capacities ranging from 700 – 900 tph and more importantly that were mobile as they planned to use them for roads and building projects all over Oman. The experienced team at Genserv recommended the Warrior 2400 scalping screen and Galfar Engineering ordered two of them to meet their requirements of the job.
When production began, the customer was so satisfied with its capabilities that they expanded their fleet to include four more units, including the 100th production model of the Warrior 2400. All six machines are now working at the Al Batinah Expressway road project (Phase 1 – 45km), where high quality sub-base is being produced from feed material of a nearby wadi (river bed).
According to the customer, "We are very happy with the performance of our plant – each machine is working for up to 20 hours per day and producing high volumes of material. We find that the machines offer a low operating cost per tonne and we know that we can count on high speed local support from Genserv when we need it."
The Warrior 2400 screens are configured with a 150mm punch plate on the top deck and with a 63mm aperture mesh on the bottom deck, giving three end products. The -63mm fines is used for base rock for road projects. The mid-size material (+63mm to -150mm) is crushed through a wheeled Terex® cone crusher and a legacy Terex Pegson® 4242SR impactor and sized below 63mm using the attached post-screen. Finally, the +150mm over-sized material is crushed using a jaw, cone and VSI range of crushers working in combination with various screens to make different sized aggregates and manufactured sand. In some instances, the screened oversized material is also used for road pitching work.
Officially launched at the Hillhead Exhibition in June 2010, the first Warrior 2400 was sold to Lincom in Australia and has since been shipped to customers across the world. The machine is specially designed for large scale operators in the quarrying and mining sectors and is capable of handling larger feed sizes. The machine features a heavy duty incline screen with a high amplitude triple shaft drive mechanism, lending it to screening, scalping, 2 or 3 way separation and stockpiling of materials like aggregates, topsoil, composts, coal, construction, demolition waste and iron ore.
User benefits include a slide out tail conveyor facility to aid media access and a load sensing collection conveyor circuit to avoid blockages. The Warrior 2400 is the ultimate solution for large-scale end users who require a high performing versatile screener that remains easy to transport, set-up, operate and maintain.
