The flagship 3300 model in the relaunched Phoenix range
Northern Ireland-based Powerscreen
is re-introducing its Phoenix mobile crushing and screening range.
Phoenix, one of the original machine ranges in Powerscreen's product portfolio, is a collection of trommel machines that are predominantly used in recycling applications such as C&D waste, wood chippings, top soil, compost and green waste.
Through the processes of screening and separation, material is extracted to create recycled useable products, resulting in increased profits for the customer while being better for the environment.
Commenting on the decision to bring back this range to the Powerscreen portfolio, Powerscreen product manager Neil Robinson said: “The global waste management market is becoming more and more prevalent as government initiatives are geared toward better environmental practices, so it is an ideal time to bring back the Phoenix range with its proven track record in recycling applications."
The re-introduced Phoenix range includes the Powerscreen Phoenix 1600 which comes in both tracked and wheeled versions, the mid-size Powerscreen Phoenix 2100 and the larger flagship Powerscreen Phoenix 3300.
The Powerscreen Phoenix 1600 tracked and wheeled trommel screens have been designed to provide excellent fuel efficiency and low operating costs, whilst also reducing emissions and noise levels due to the machine running at a low engine RPM. With a 4.9m (16’) x 1.54m (5’) drum, unrivalled production throughput is guaranteed due to the screening area which is the largest in its class.
Powerscreen says the Phoenix 2100 trommel screen is designed to offer unrivalled production throughput and application flexibility. The robust design with optional features such as a heavy duty tipping grid or double deck vibrating grid make the Phoenix 2100 the most versatile trommel on the market today. The machine performs equally well in heavy C&D applications as it does in high volume compost production. The 180° swivel fines conveyor, with a 5.7m (18’ 6”) discharge, means the machine can generate massive stockpiles. This swivel feature can be controlled via a radio remote while the machine is in operation, minimising downtime.
The Powerscreen Phoenix 3300 trommel screen is also designed to offer unrivalled production throughput and application flexibility. Key features include having the largest screen area within the Phoenix range, a 180⁰ swivel fines conveyor, with a 5.8m (19”) discharge and a powerful four wheel drive system with high performance friction grip wheels which is used to turn the trommel drum giving operators the ability to run bi-directionally. Options include a heavy duty tipping grid or double deck vibrating grid.
The Phoenix 3300 is claimed to be highly efficient in the separation and processing of wood chippings, top soil, compost, green waste and aggregates.
