Keestrack is on track with the M5 engine unit

Keestrack e-drive equipment can run plugged-in to the grid or can be run by the on-board diesel/gen set or by any other generator. The crushers, screens and stackers can all be connected to each other, resulting in even bigger savings.

To facilitate this, featuring on the Keestrack stand is the latest M5 tracked engine unit which carries a Cummins X12 EU Stage V engine and alternator. It delivers 383kW, 450kVA to drive all electric equipment at 197g/kWh.

The tracked engine – the perfect back up for the ZERO drive machines where there is no source of electricity on site – is part of Keestrack’s lengthy engine/gen set portfolio. Keestrack introduced a few years ago the first drop off module, a diesel engine with integrated gen-set, which can power several e-driven machines. It is placed a few meters from the machine in a less dusty environment and allows easier access for service and maintenance, unlike units that are built into a machine’s chassis.

One step further is the introduction of the tracked engine/generator units. These supply connected Keestrack crushers, screeners and stackers directly with electricity in case there is no plug in connection from the grid available. This way the economic advantages of the complete production train will rise due to using only one engine for several machines.
