Crushing and screening company Pilot Crushtec International’s award-winning Pilot Modular range of semimobile crushing and screening products would now feature Metso crushing and screening equipment as standard, Pilot Crushtec CEO Sandro Scherf, said in a statement released last month.
Metso equipment has been integrated into the Pilot Modular range’s supporting structures designed and built at the Jet Park manufacturing facility.
“The traditional Pilot Modular concept will remain unchanged in its role, providing an affordable and quick alternative to costly, bespoke and time-consuming plant designs and equipment,” noted Scherf.
As the engineering team was familiar with the stresses and strains the equipment endured daily, it focused on the need to accommodate the harshest working conditions prevalent in Africa, added Scherf.
A case in point, Scherf said, was that “the new-generation assemblies are built from heavy-duty steel sections, welded to exactingly high standards and assembled with painstaking precision, offering the client better lasting quality at market-related prices”.
The all new Pilot Modular product line-up includes the Metso C96 and the C106 jaw crusher units – robust pieces of machinery that can withstand various applications and have been proven to cut operating costs.
The range also includes the HP 200 and HP 300 cone crushers.
“The 200 and 300 are efficient in secondary and tertiary crushing; with the exceptional big stroke, high speed and cavity design combination, they ensure a constant product grading with very good product shape. “The two cone crushers also ensure continuous and safe production at the lowest cost per ton,” Scherf said.
Rounding out the range is the GP330 cone crusher, which can function in a secondary position but performs “outstandingly well” in a tertiary application where the feed rate is uncontrolled and inconsistent.
Three new screens have been added, including the CVB1540 screen, the CVB1845 screen and the CVB2060 screen. All three screens are user friendly and “easy to maintain”.
The CVB2060 was fitted with an extra fourth deck, noted Scherf, to enable the customer to screen out four products and use the top deck to circulate material back to the crusher.
“The Pilot Modular concept has proven to be immensely successful in its original aim to provide startup mining companies, quarry operators, aggregate producers and a growing number of recyclers with affordable single-unit or turnkey solutions to meet their businesses growing needs,” commented Scherf.
He concluded that the new products also offered customers the security, confidence and engineering excellence of the Metso brand, combined with Pilot Crushtec International’s “legendary standards of sales and service”.
