Producing accurately sized aggregates in the mining, quarrying, recycling and demolition industries is essential, as is the ability to produce massive stockpiles of material. Although mobile screens have their own integrated stockpiling conveyors, they are generally compact and often need to be augmented by separate specialist stockpilers. This is unproductive, inefficient, and of course expensive. To overcome this, Screencore has combined precision screening and enhanced stockpiling with the introduction of New Trident 125 Hi-Stak.
The Screencore range of stockpilers has been designed to boost operational productivity. The components of the range have been developed to work on their own or alongside Screencore’s – and other manufacturers – ranges of crushers, screens and trommels etc. In order to deliver flexible, mobile stockpiling, Screencore conveyors are designed to be transportable and highly durable, offering features such as twin drives, check valves and hopper feeders. The stockpilers have been specifically developed to help construction, recycling, quarrying and surface mining operations, delivering a solution that can handle bulk materials on any site.
Providing the highest levels of precision screening efficiency, Screencore’s Trident range of scalper screens is renowned globally for toughness, adaptability, high performance and screening excellence. Members of the range are known for the ability to handle heavy duty operations, being an industrious piece of equipment designed for scalping and precision screening. With an exceptionally large screen area and high-capacity performance, Screencore’s range of scalper screens deliver a robust capability to withstand vast amounts of material, making them a favourite in such industries such as quarrying aggregate production, surface mining, construction, and recycling.
Despite the excellence of the individual product ranges, to combine the attributes of precision screening and scalping with large material stockpiles, two pieces of equipment are required: a screener and a stockpiler. Now however Screencore has combined stockpiling and scalping-screening with the introduction of the new Trident 125 Hi-Stak. This machine is believed by Screencore to be a first, combining the benefits of an advanced scalper screen with the stockpiling capabilities of an advanced stacker.
Best of both worlds
“Being able to produce high quality accurately sized aggregates is essential today, whether its materials from a surface mine, quarry or an aggregate plant, or recycled construction materials from highways, demolition or recycling operations. The Screencore range of scalper screens has developed a reputation for advanced screening globally, being tough, productive, environmentally friendly and accurate,” explains Screencore director Ciarán Ryan.
“Likewise, the Screencore range of stockpilers has been developed to deliver huge stockpiles of materials, working with their own on-board power unit, or powered by a crusher, screen, or plug in mains or genset.
Material stockpiles result from screening and/or crushing, with a large size of stockpile being considered essential for efficient and productive operations. With this in mind, and based on customer feedback, we decided to combine stockpiling and screening excellence into one machine. The result is the New Trident 125 Hi-Stak, which we believe is a game changing development,” explains Ciarán Ryan.
Class of its own
“The Screencore Trident 125 Hi-Stak really is in a class of its own. It combines the benefits of a modern heavy- duty primary screen with the obvious benefits of a 24m stacker,” adds Ciarán Ryan. “Essentially, customers get two machines in one resulting in remarkable reductions in carbon emissions, substantial fuel savings, and the elimination of the need for double-handling fines.
“The Hi-Stak is set to revolutionize efficiency across various primary screening operations. Whether it’s within the confines of a quarry, sand and gravel operation, or dealing with soil and mulch, its capacity to effortlessly screen and stockpile large quantities of fines without necessitating double-handling or the creation of a wheel-loader stockpile is hugely beneficial. Furthermore, and in common with all new Screencore products, it aligns perfectly with our stated objective of prioritizing carbon-reduction,” concludes Screencore director Ciarán Ryan.
The Hi-Stak is now available for shipping globally after an intensive testing and development program.
