Cadishead-based demolition specialist Northbank Demolition has recently purchased its third Powerscreen crusher – its first Premiertrak 300 mobile jaw crusher from UK dealer Blue Machinery.
A National Federation of Demolition Contractors member, Northbank will use the Premiertrak to process demolition arisings to provide a usable commodity either for the further development of projects or for sale to other users.
Powered by a low-emission, low-consumption Tier4i Scania diesel engine delivering 275hp, the 32.5-tonne machine combines the output of some larger machines in the compact dimensions required by Northbank to access some of its tighter city centre sites.
The machine benefits from hydraulic crusher setting adjustment, to control product size, and overload protection, which stops damage by foreign objects in the crushing chamber.
This is useful for the company because steel rebar can sometimes be present when processing concrete.
A hydraulically lowering conveyor allows access, minimising downtime in the case of a blockage. Large clearances in the bypass chute also enhance material flow and reduce the chance of blockages when processing sticky or difficult materials.
Paul Richards, Northbank managing director, says: “It is easy to use and economical to run. We couldn’t ask for a better crusher for our operations.”
