Whordleys Bulk Haulage based in Queensland has taken delivery of a Powerscreen Chieftain 2200 2 Deck Incline Screen.
The Powerscreen Chieftain 2200 screen is the first in the Chieftain range to feature two screenboxes, delivering excellent performance and meeting the tightest aggregate specs. The maximum variability of the Chieftain range offers improved capabilities over its class rivals, especially in sticky scalping applications. User benefits include a quick set-up time (typically under 30 minutes) with hydraulically folding conveyors and track mobility. It’s high aggression screenboxes handle dirty, sticky material with ease.
The Chieftain 2200 incline screen is already hard at work at a timber mill in Gayndah (QLD), the equipment is screening wood chips produced by a Morbark drum chipper. Whordleys Bulk Haulage new Chieftain 2200 is fitted with a vibrating grid and bofor bars at 150mm and 80mm mesh while the screenbox is fitted with a 30mm top deck mesh and 8mm bottom deck mesh.
The material comes apart as follows:
- +80mm – This is oversize and goes back for more chipping reduction
- +30mm, -80mm – This is also considered oversize and also goes back to more chipping reduction
- +8mm, -30mm – This is the required end product and is used in refineries
- -8mm – This is considered the dust product and is used in horse stables and supplied to landscape material suppliers.
Andy Hatch, Operations Manager for Whordleys Bulk Haulage, said “The Chieftain 2200 has proven itself to be an aggressive screen, the versatility of the machine improved our productivity and the end product is excellent. Overall we are impressed with the performance of the equipment.”
