Pilot Crushtec International has introduced Metso Outotec’s Lokotrack® ST2.3™ scalping screen to the local southern Africa market. With its ability to process various feed materials and be deployed in both primary scalping and fine screening applications, the Lokotrack ST2.3 fits the bill for contractors increasingly looking for versatile solutions that can execute multiple projects with a single machine.
Contractors know that every jobsite is different. However, they are also aware that they don’t have the comfort of purchasing specific pieces of equipment to match the needs of every project. With a growing requirement to do more with less, contractors can take advantage of the Lokotrack ST2.3 scalping screen’s versatility, which allows it to be adapted and deliver the desired results on a broad range of applications.
Newly launched and now available locally from Pilot Crushtec International, the Lokotrack ST2.3 scalping screen is a multi-use scalping screen perfectly suited to heavy duty scalping, fine screening and recycling. Dubbed the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of screening, the machine is designed to process a range of materials, from topsoil and recycled concrete waste, to road base material and fine aggregates.
The machine can be used as a standalone unit or as part of a multi-stage crushing and screening process. Its versatility is enhanced by the various screen media options, including grizzly, punch plate, finger grizzly and wire mesh.
Despite its compact build, the machine punches above its weight with a 4,6 m² screening area, the widest in its class. This is complemented by an aggressive stroke up to 13 mm with 5G acceleration, resulting in a high screening performance.
“Contract crushing is a nomadic venture by its nature, which often calls for moving of machines from one site to the other. With that in mind, Metso Outotec paid particular attention to ease of transportation during the development of the Lokotrack ST2.3 scalping screen,” says Francois Marais, director sales and marketing at Pilot Crushtec.
With its compact screen box size (3 040 mm x 1,520 mm) and optimised weight (17 000 kg), the machine can be moved from one site to another using a standard trailer, thus helping contractors cut back on transportation costs.
Amid record high fuel prices, fleet owners will benefit from the machine’s fuel efficiency. Powered by a CAT C3.6 diesel engine, the machine consumes as low as seven litres of fuel per hour, translating into lower total cost of operation.
With Metso Outotec’s IC automation system, fleet managers can monitor, control remotely and automate the screening process for better performance. With information on upcoming maintenance needs, fleet managers can plan their maintenance breaks effectively to reduce machine downtime. IC automation also makes the work of operators safer with the remote-control features.
