ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW COLT 1600 SCREENER
EvoQuip used its ‘Experience Days’ event today in Ireland to exclusively reveal plans for a new innovation—the Colt 1600 scalping screen.
The 200-strong audience at the event—including customers and dealers from across the world—were surprised by the news of the Colt 1600, which has been in secret development for some time with the first machines scheduled for production in the coming months.
Addressing the attendees, EvoQuip Business Line Director Matt Dickson said, “We are thrilled to welcome so many esteemed customers and dealers to our EvoQuip Experience Days event in Northern Ireland. We wanted to bring you some exciting news in relation to a new product that we’ve been developing behind the scenes… and now, I’m proud to officially reveal the Colt 1600 as a brand new EvoQuip model, the first of which will be available to ship to customers in early 2020. We are confident that this highly aggressive scalping screen will open up new opportunities for EvoQuip customers globally.”
Building upon the features which have made the Colt 1000 a global success, the Colt 1600 will be the largest screen in the EvoQuip range, capable of processing up to 600tph (661 US tph) depending on application. With a high capacity incline apron feeder as standard, the machine has been rigorously tested in heavy duty applications and more than delivered on expectations, according to EvoQuip.
The versatile and heavy duty Colt 1600 scalper is designed to work in both primary and secondary screening applications, incorporating an aggressive double deck screen of 4.8m x 1.53m (16’ x 5’). The variable screening angle and numerous screen media options enables the machine to operate in both heavy duty scalping and precision screening applications, managing even the most difficult of materials with ease. With its three interchangeable screenbox options (Single Shaft, Triple Shaft and Spaleck), the Colt 1600 excels in a wide range of applications.
The Colt 1600 is available with Hybrid technology giving the flexibility to be powered by an external power supply or the standard on-board engine.
As with the highly successful Colt 1000, the 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, with the ability to place both conveyors on the same side of the unit once the Colt 1600 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 already impressive conveyor discharge heights can be further enhanced with the addition of optional telescopic conveyors.
The T-Link telemetry system provides the customer with real-time information on the performance of their machine meaning effective machine management and maximising uptime. Also available is the OMNI by Terex cab-led machine control system launched in 2019, technology that has won multiple awards globally for safety and site management innovation.
Matt Dickson later added, “The team have been blown away by how well the news of the Colt 1600 has been received today. 2020 is set to be an exciting year with this launch and other equipment innovations already in development.”
