New and Unique Features of Rotomite-6000 CE
While many features of the Rotomite-6000 CE are similar or identical to the Rotomite-6000, the Rotomite-6000 CE has several new and unique features that increase productivity and versatility.
Every component that processes slurry on the Rotomite-6000 CE was selected for abrasion resistance.
Cast Pump for Abrasive Applications. The Rotomite- 6000 CE 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-6000 CE. Note attachment to Black Mamba Cutterhead - two subsequent photos.
Propulsion System. The Rotomite-6000 CE 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-6000 CE. 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.
