YANKTON, SD – Kolberg-Pioneer has launched its new hybrid power FT4250CC with added pre-screen.
The pre-screen option allows producers to scalp the feed, crush the material and post-screen all on one unit. By pre-screening the feed, users can maximize their scalping ability and minimize the amount of undersized material passing through the chamber, reducing wear costs and increasing the amount of final product by up to 30%.
“Several of our customers are trying to produce products that have a significant amount of fines in the feed material. The pre-screen allows producers to remove those fines while also minimizing the amount of rejected in-spec product,” Tim Harms, crushing and screening product manager at Kolberg-Pioneer.
The flagship plant will also feature KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ patented hybrid power. Hybrid equipment gives operators rugged, high-performance machines with flexible power options in one convenient package. With the patented hybrid solutions, producers can operate using either line power or genset, or use traditional diesel power when electric power is not available.
The most ecological source, line power, offers producers several operational and environmental benefits. Reduced noise levels, no engine emissions, the ability to run indoors and not having to refuel the equipment create a cleaner atmosphere for communities, while decreased operational and maintenance expenses create opportunities for producers. The patented hybrid option can also increase production in dirty and dusty environments, while lowering the processing cost-per-ton.
