Sandvik Construction expanded 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 user-friendly features as Sandvik’s Premium range of scalpers, yet in a smaller scale version, the company said.
Sandvik said the QE241 is the ideal solution for smaller users where performance, versatility, transportation and setup times are most important. It benefits from Sandvik’s history of mobile scalper development as well as sharing common features of its larger siblings including a two-way split configuration option and sequential start-up.
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. (3500- 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 impressive 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.
Another key benefit is the easy-to-use control system and user interface with sequential start, a common feature across 1-Series screens and scalpers. The model also comes with two-speed tracking that helps to reduce travel time between jobsites.
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 contractors requiring the need to travel quickly from site to site.
Ease of maintenance is ensured through the hydraulic jack-up facility on the screen box, also common with its larger siblings. This allows easy access to the bottom deck for service and screen media changes.
