From its base in Coalisland, Northern Ireland, Screencore has developed a range of modern mobile crushing, screening, stockpiling and pugmill solutions relatively quickly. 

Its new XJ dual-power jaw crusher adds power, production capability and crushing performance to the company's comprehensive model line-up.

"In line with our design philosophy, the dual-power XJ 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," says Ciarán Ryan, Screencore's sales director. "While all our models are available in the dual-power format, our crushers (including the smaller XL model) come with this feature built-in offering several distinct advantages over traditional diesel/hydraulic crushers. Not least is miserly fuel consumption in single digits for litres per hour. Environmentally, the XJ checks all the boxes, including the 'Zero Emissions' box with its plug-in ability and the 'Low Noise' box. We believe that the XJ raises the productivity bar substantially for mid-sized crushers."

The new Screencore XJ is a diesel-electric 1,000mm x 650mm (40" x 27") jaw crusher designed to process minerals and recycle 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. The 29,500kg (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, the crusher is equipped with a dust suppression system, an overband magnet and an optional deflector plate for inner city material recycling operations.

"The XJ represents the culmination of several years of customer feedback and extensive research to incorporate the best features demanded by customers from a mid-sized tracked jaw crusher. We have taken the feedback on board to deliver what we believe is a game changer as it combines productivity with environmental performance. With its low transport height of just over 3m, length of 13.6m, 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 a number of production sites," concludes Ryan.
