EvoQuip will launch the Colt 1000 scalping screen, at Hillhead 2018
EvoQuip is set to launch its latest innovation, the Colt 1000 scalping screen, at Hillhead
2018 (stand L4) being held at the Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, England, from 26-28 June.
Building on the success of the Colt 600 and Colt 800, the Colt 1000 is the largest screen in the portfolio and capable of processing up to 360tonnes/hour, depending on application, and has been on test with Rapid Aggregates in the UK.
“I am impressed by the performance of the Colt 1000, a powerful machine for such a small package,” says Trevor Armitage, Rapid Aggregates managing director.
“There is nothing it can’t cope with and output is comparable to larger screens. The screen box is very aggressive and excellent at clearing both stone and wet soil material.”
The machine incorporates an double-deck screen of 3.96m x 1.22m, and the variable screening angle and numerous screen media options enable the machine to operate in both heavy-duty scalping and precision screening applications.
The full near 4m bottom deck ensures optimal classification in fine screening applications.
The mobile Colt 1000 includes a compact footprint and standard configuration discharges the fines product to the right side of the plant, with the mid-grade on the left.
Both conveyors can be ordered reversed as an option, with the ability to place both conveyors on the same side of the unit once the Colt 1000 reaches the field. Flexibility is further enhanced with two-way split conversion by simply relocating the tail conveyor to collect both top and bottom deck pieces.
The 1,000mm-wide feed conveyor complements the screen width to ensure maximum screen area is managed from the feed point.
The Colt 1000 can be fitted with the T-Link telemetry system which provides the customer with real-time information on the performance of their machine.
The Colt 1000 can be seen in the live demo area of Hillhead where it will be fed by the Cobra 290 impact crusher, another of the EvoQuip new products launching at Hillhead.
