First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
Sandvik Construction’s new QE241 heavy-duty scalper is said to be the ideal solution for smaller end users where performance, versatility, transportation and set up 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.
Capable of scalping before or after a small crusher, the QE241 features a heavy duty variable speed belt feeder and a highly aggressive 3500mm x 1240mm double deck screenbox. This is said to offer 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 1200mm-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 which 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.
The safety and comfort of use is of paramount importance for operators. A key benefit to customers is the easy-to-use control system and user interface with sequential start, a common feature across Sandvik Construction’s 1 Series screens and scalpers. The model also comes with two-speed tracking which helps to reduce travel time between job sites.
