Sandvik QE241 Heavy-Duty Scalper Designed for Easy Transport
Sandvik Construction is expanding its range of scalpers with the launch of the new QE241 heavy-duty scalper. The QE241 has many of the same user-friendly features as Sandvik's Premium range of scalpers, but in a more compact, easy-to-transport design.
The QE241 was developed based on customer feedback. Although targeted primarily at the European market, it will be an ideal solution for smaller end users where performance, versatility, transportation and setup times are most important. The QE241 shares features with its larger siblings – including a two-way split configuration option and sequential startup.
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-foot / 3500- x 1240mm 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. The 1200mm / 47-inch 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 key benefit to customers 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 which helps to reduce travel time between jobsites.
Designed for ease of transport, the 17,500kg / 38,580-pound model comes complete with hydraulically folding tail and side conveyors, together with a rigid one-piece hopper for quick setup 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.
