New crushing and screening champions

Mobile crushing and screening equipment manufacturer, Powerscreen, has come of age celebrating 21 years in the southern African industry in partnership with ELB Equipment, its longtime local distributor.

Throughout this time the company has remained innovative and focused on giving local customners what they need. In recent times this has led to the launch of its new range of ultra-efficient crushers and screens designed to maximize output within tight confines. The Trakpactor 260 impact crusher in combination with Warrior 600 screen is able to punch well above its weight despite the system’s small footprint.

According to Gemma McCallan, marketing executive of Powerscreen, the relationship between the two companies has been successful and mutually beneficial throughout the 21 year partnership. “With an ever growing range to service a number of new markets we believe that we have a stronger proposition for the southern African market than ever before.

Powerful and efficient

“Equipment like the new Trakpactor 260 and Warrior 600 have the potential to open up the market for smaller operations such as small-scale quarries, recyclers, demolitions, composters etc who will have the benefit of higher output mobile equipment without the need for much space.

“For example, the Warrior 600 is the most compact mobile screen on the market and can easily be shipped in a single 20ft container. In combination with the Trakpactor 260 the duo have an aggressive action and fast throughput of over 200 tons per hour (tph) that enables it to compete with much bigger and bulkier machines.

“On the other hand, our full range provides options for all other industries with large-scale screens capable of outputs of over 800tph and jaw, cone and impact crushers for large scale mining operations. Whatever the requirement, ELB Equipment will have the right solutions for any applications at hand,” says Gemma.

Fully supported

Pierre Nel, divisional director of ELB Equipment, says the entire range of machines from Powerscreen offers great potential for growth in a wide range of industries. The machines are versatile and efficient and most important are backed-up around the clock by ELB Equipments’ team of service and field service staff.
