Sandvik Expands Range of Scalpers

52 Sandvik 400Sandvik Construction is expanding its range of scalpers with the launch of the new QE241 heavy duty scalper. Compact in design and easy to transport, producers will benefit from the same outstanding, user-friendly features from our Premium range of scalpers, yet in a smaller scale version, according to the company.

“We have developed the QE241 based on customer feedback. Although targeted primarily at the European market, it will be the ideal solution for our smaller end users where performance, versatility, transportation and setup times are most important. The QE241 also benefits from Sandvik’s long history of mobile scalper development as well as sharing common characteristics from its larger siblings including a two way split configuration option and sequential start-up,” the company stated.

Capable of scalping before or after a small crusher, the QE241 features a heavy-duty variable speed belt feeder and a highly aggressive 11- x 4-ft. (3,500- x 1240-mm) double-deck screenbox. This offers the largest scalping area in its class, which combined with the banana-type bottom deck arrangement, will provide a highly effective and efficient screening solution like no other, the company said.

The 47-in. (1200-mm) wide conveyor can handle the toughest oversize material and two hydraulically folding side conveyors handle the fines and midsize products.

With a wide choice of screen media available, the QE241 offers customers a highly versatile unit that can be configured to suit the specific requirements of the application. Its robust chassis has been designed to be compatible for two-way or three-way split versions, a unique feature in this product category.

Designed for ease of transport, the 38,580-lb. (17,500-kg) model comes complete with hydraulically folding tail and side conveyors, together with a rigid one-piece hopper for quick set-up times. These features, combined with its compact footprint make it ideal for producers requiring the need to travel quickly from site to site.
