Introducing the new Screencore XJ Dual-Power tracked jaw crusher

Screencore has from its very beginning produced a range of compact and modern mobile crushing, screening and stockpiling equipment, purpose built using the most up to date manufacturing techniques.  The company is now pleased to announce the launch of its latest development, the Screencore XJ Dual-Power tracked jaw crusher.

In line with its design philosophy, the XJ Dual-Power comes packed with a range of user-friendly features including remote control feeder and remote unblock facility as well as hydraulic fold-and-lock Hardox hopper sides. While all models now available in dual-power format, Screencore crushers (including the smaller XL model) come with this feature built-in feature offering several distinct advantages over traditional diesel/hydraulic crushers.

Not least of these advantages is the miserly fuel consumption of just over 2 USgl/hour. In fact, environmentally, the XJ checks all the boxes including both the ‘Zero Emissions’ box with its plug-in ability and the ‘Low Noise’ box. This and its other unique features ensure that the XJ raises the productivity bar substantially for mid-sized crushers.

Making the hard yards

The new Screencore XJ is in effect a diesel-electric 40” x 27” jaw crusher designed for the processing of minerals and recycling construction materials in a compact and easily transportable form. This powerful machine is based on the same principles of ease of operation and quick set-up time as other members of the growing Screencore range. Overband magnet and deflector plate come as standard. The 65,000lbs XJ’s innovative features include a jaw level sensor, electric plug in, push-button hydraulic CSS wedge adjustment and a bolted mainframe jaw construction. In addition, for inner city material recycling operations, the super-silent XJ is equipped with a dust suppression system. These and other features make sure the XJ Dual-Power not only saves on dollar spend but does the hard yards of dirty work any owner needs from their jaw crusher.

“The XJ combines productivity with environmental performance. With its low transport height and rapid set-up time, the XJ may be easily moved between sites for maximised operational flexibility, making it ideal for rental companies and businesses with several production sites.
Its ability to electrically power downstream plant such as stockpilers and screens makes it unique for a mid-sized unit and allows for a complete crushing, screening and stockpiling spread to run from one engine at less than 4 UGgl/hour!” says proud Screencore director Ciarán Ryan.
