Keestrack Sets The Standard In Fully Electric Processing


Keestrack, the most innovative company in the field of mobile crushing and screening technology, has announced its entry into India with its newly established subsidiary Etrack Crushers Private Limited, headquartered at Gurugram. The name ‘Etrack’ stands for Keestrack’s commitment to build and supply low emission green machines with lowest operating costs in terms of power consumption and maintenance. With its plug-in technology, Keestrack introduces crawler-mounted machines that can run on dual mode, i.e., via the on-board diesel engine and genset or plug-in to the mains on site. This makes Keestrack’s standalone machines and plant combinations save upto 30% to 50% of fuel compared to their competitors. The fully electric crushing and screening plants can be supplied in a wide range of combinations covering all facets of compression/ impact crushing and various screening duties including scalping and fine classification. The Keestrack jaw crushers have special features such as the patented non-stop release system and automatic wear compensation. As an example, for a typical aggregate plant Keestrack is offering its new fully hybrid jaw crusher B4e. In this machine, an electric motor is responsible for driving the high efficiency jaw crusher – and in addition an electrical motor/pump unit powers all the hydraulic components (stroke and traction hydraulics). The Keestrack B4e can be operated entirely from the mains supply, which Keestrack believes can achieve considerable savings in energy costs of up to 70%. In mobile applications in the field, the on-board combination of diesel engine and generator powers the machine, which provides a guarantee to the operator of full flexibility and high investment security on resale. As a secondary crushing unit to the B4e, Keestrack offers its fully hybrid H4e cone crusher. It guarantees a high level of mobility thanks to its compact design, economic productivity thanks to onepiece transport including the optional 3-deck screening module, and a broad range of applications thanks to the proven cone crushing technology.

A large feed intake and very variable crushing chamber configurations and stroke settings enable the Keestrack H4e to offer a wide CSS range, while the drive and control technology has been especially adapted in line with the Keestrack hybrid concept. The cone-crusher is driven by an electric motor – the lubrication system, the hydraulic Hydroset control with overload cut-out and the air compression of the crusher housing are powered by separate electric motors/pump units. All crusher functions are incorporated into the central Keestrack PLC controller, which enables loading personnel in excavators or wheel loaders to operate the machine by remote control. The cone is available with an optional full size three deck screen with recirculation conveyor. Using the B4e and H4e in a production train reduces the number of machines and engines needed for such a typical plant from three to two. With a large screening area over three decks, the H4e post-screen module also guarantees high production rates including oversize material recycling. The screen box has a sensor-monitored hydraulic drive, with all belts powered by maintenance-friendly electricdrives. Providing large stockpiling capacity during operation, the discharge conveyors for transport can be fully retracted hydraulically for transport. Both the H4e and the B4e are equipped with plug out facilities to run additional stockpiling conveyors, plant illumination systems or electric tools, eliminating the need for additional gensets/electricity.

Keestrack’s product range contains a wide line-up of jaws, cones, impactors, scalpers and classifying screens, mobile stockpilers and dust suppression systems with hybrid diesel-electric drives. Keestrack has been the pioneer in scalper technology, an unparalleled innovation by Mr. Kees Hoogendoorn, a founding member of the family owned company. Keestrack’s direct feed screens with heavy duty plate apron feeder find use in the widest range of tasksdue to their ability to adapt to the requirements in those applications. The applications that can be performed by Keestack’s K series, direct feed screens, range from mining, river gravel, recycled asphalt pavement, top soil and debris, waste, wood, limestone, construction waste, recycling to many more. These machines are available with diesel electric drive and direct plug in to perform the most arduous tasks at lowest possible operating costs. Keestrack’s dust suppression cannons have unique features including an aerodynamic compositecone, quick coupling nozzles, easy controls, high performance fan, high quality components e.g. Grundfos maintenance free pump, integrated double filtration system (before pump and before nozzle). This system provides efficient dust suppression by an adjustable vertical angle and oscillation without adding any moisture to the material to uncomplicate the rock processing. Another great innovation by Keestrack is the Keestrack-er, which is available as an option on the company’s mobile crushers and screens. The Keestrack-er is a unique satellite-based telemonitoring system, which documents all the key performance data of the machines in real-time, alerts the operator to any malfunctions and collects all data and offers a reporting function. For instance, the complete production data can be viewed if a belt-scale is installed. Real-time performance values (engine/ drive speeds, hydraulic pressures, crusher settings, etc.), stored data and the machine’s accurate position are transmitted via GSM network and the local GSM provider’s internet access to the central Keestrack server. The stored information on the server can be safely and reliably retrieved at any time and from everywhere worldwide. The interactive structure of Keestrack-er also allows direct access on the machine’s PLC-controller to fix or update the plant software. Keestrack India has set up its office with efficient marketing and service support, which offers the entire Keestrack portfolio from their European manufacturing facilities. In the coming months, Keestrack will set up a modern production facility in India, which shall demonstrate the long-term commitment of the company to the Indian market.
