Goulburn quarrying and recycling open day a success

Powerscreen Premiertrak R300 and the Powerscreen Trackpactor 320SR

Lincom Group’s quarrying and recycling Open Day in Goulburn, NSW last week was a success, with visitors travelling from as far as Western Australia to attend.

The open day was held at Divall’s Carrick Quarry on November 8-9, with two of the machines on display – The Powerscreen Premiertrak 400 Jaw crusher and Powerscreen Chieftain 2100X 2 deck screen – sold on the first day.

Over the course of the two days, the company hosted a live working demonstration of the Powerscreen Premiertrak R300 jaw crusher, Powerscreen Trackpactor 320SR impact crusher and Powerscreen Chieftain 2100X screen. Producing minus 8mm dust, 8-16mm aggregates and a 16-26.5mm aggregate, these final sizes were achieved by having a 40mm top deck and a 26.5mm bottom deck fitted to the Trackpactor. All of the over 26.5mm product was recirculated back to the impactor, with the remainder creating the top size for aggregates to be screened. The source rock for this demonstration was a hard Hornfels material.

Lincom Group also ran concrete through the crushers as part of the demonstration. The Chieftain deck was tracked out of the pit (emphasising the machine’s portability) and the prepared concrete was fed in to the Premiertrak 300, which then went into the Trackpactor with the same screen media as the first demonstration. This resulted in the production of minus 26.5mm Roadbase material with huge fine content and no steel.

A Warrior 600 screen and Premiertrak R400 jaw crusher were also on display.

In addition, the Morbark 4600 XL Woodhog and the Neuenhauser 3F star screen were featured in the recycling demonstration area. The Morbark 4600 XL proved its ability to process Australian hard woods and green waste with ease, and demonstrated how a waste product from land clearing, storm clean up and general public garden green waste can be turned in to a valuable product that can be used for mulch, compost and biomass fuel.

The Neuenhauser 3F star screen screened composted mulch with high production rates, making a 10mm minus, 40mm minus and clean oversize. This showed its ability to screen wet, difficult material and make value added products.

Lincom Group chairman Roy Watterson, who attended the event, was pleased with the event’s turnout and the company’s ability to display their range of quarrying and recycling applications to current and potential customers.

Mark Ferguson, Territory Sales Manager for Powerscreen said, “The open days were well run and were used as the official Australian launch for the Powerscreen Pulse telemetry system. Customers attending the event were able to see for themselves how our telemetry system works, and how effective it can be in remotely monitoring and controlling machine performance.”

Following the success of this event, Lincom Group will be hosting another Exclusive Open Day next year.
