Crushtec Chronicle – STOP PRESS! Pilot Modular introduces the MaxiScalp 600, an industry first

Pilot Crushtec has introduced an industry first: a static scalper that will integrate into its popular range of semi-mobile crushing and screening products.

Design Office Manager, Dawie Scholtz, explains that the concept for the MaxiScalp 600 was born out of the relatively expensive operating costs of diesel-hydraulic driven, tracked mobile units. Many users do not require high mobility which drove us to design a semi-mobile electric driven unit which substantially reduces the operating and servicing costs compared to diesel-hydraulic units.

“We anticipate that the MaxiScalp 600 will become the machine of choice for customers processing sticky materials, especially those who work throughout the rainy seasons in parts of central and southern Africa. Its robust design and manufacture ensures it can handle large feed sizes at high volumes.”

“The heavy-duty apron feeder permits loading by front end loader or excavator and the double deck scalping screen provides three sizes of product.  It has been designed to accommodate a feed size of up to 600mm and the anticipated output is up to 600 tonnes per hour. The skid-mounted machine can be supplied with many different screen media options: including grizzly bars, punch plate, Rapid Grizzly tines and mesh. Electrically powered, it can be operated via direct connection to the grid or using genset in more remote locations.”

Expected to be used in applications as diverse as alluvial diamond gravel screening to remove large rocks prior to downstream processing and in building rubble recycling operations to remove sticky waste soils, the diversity of the MaxiScalp 600 will find applications in mining, quarrying, construction and recycling applications all over southern Africa.

Dawie and his team are assisting our workshop personnel to assemble the first MaxiScalp 600, and this should be ready for viewing by August.

Our sales engineers are fully briefed on new product developments so they can in turn keep our customers aware of new offerings in the pipeline. Their initial feedback is that the MaxiScalp 600 is a product with a great future!
