New and Unique Features of Rotomite- 6000CE
While many features of the Rotomite-6000C Series are similar or identical to the Rotomite-6000, the Rotomite- 6000CE has several new and unique features that increase productivity and versatility.
SRS Crisafulli’s Engineers developed anew model of its proven successful self-propelled Rotomite-6000, named Rotomite-6000CE, with a cast alloy pump for highly abrasive applications. Every component that processes slurry on the Rotomite-6000CE was selected for abrasion resistance. SRS Crisafulli invites enquiries from those who seek better solutions for abrasive dredging applications.
Cast Pump for Abrasive Applications. The Rotomite- 6000CE was designed around the Georgia Iron Works (GIW) cast alloy pump model LCC-M 150-500 6 inch by 8 inch. See below for photo of the GIW cast alloy pump mounted on the Rotomite-6000CE.
New Cutterhead. Shown above and below is SRS Crisafulli’s newly engineered cutterhead designed specifically for the R6CE, called the R6C Cutterhead. Note in the photo below that the R6C cutterhead hydraulic motors are mounted inside the auger tube for more efficient dredging of abrasive materials.
Propulsion System. The Rotomite-6000CE has a completely new and much more powerful propulsion system, shown below, which adds versitility (speed, thrust, and maneuverability) for the heavier Rotomite 6000 CE.
Shown above, an inside view of the Operator’s Cab on the Rotomite-6000CE. All dredge functions are controlled from the Cab – i.e., turn the main engine on and off and vary it’s power output, raise or lower the cutterhead and pump, turn on and off and vary the speed or RPM of the pump, the cutterhead rotation, propulsion thrust on/off and forward and reverse, steer the dredge left or right. The Cab is heated and air-conditioned for the Operator’s comfort, safety, and to enhance dredge productivity.
Best Value. The foregoing capabilities result in maximum versatility, minimum operating costs, and “Best Value” for the customer.
Quiet Operation. The noise level in the cab is below 85 decibels - generally considered comfortable without earplugs.
Walkway Behind Cab. The Rotomite-6000’s 24” wide walkway behind the cab enables easy access to the opposite side of the dredge’s forward section thereby increasing operator convenience and productivity.
Safety guard rails. Note the guard rails on each side of the dredge and flanking the ladder.
