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.

Rotomite 6000 C Dashboard

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.

For abrasive and soft slurries. Engineered as a modification to SRS Crisafulli’s established and proven successful Rotomite-6000, the new Rotomite-6000 CE is designed to dredge efficiently the full range of applications from soft slurries to highly abrasive slurries such as sand.

Electric Powered Dredge. SRS Crisafulli designed the Rotomite-6000 CE for an electric power plant. The economics of using available, low cost electricity, rather than a diesel engine, motivated the customer to specify the use of electric motors to power the dredge and all dredge systems.

Cast alloy pump. We replaced the fabricated pump used in the Rotomite-6000 with a cast alloy pump by Georgia Iron Works, the GIW Model LCC-M 150-500, designed specifically for abrasive applications. All dredge systems have been “hardened” to handle abrasive slurries including a new cutterhead.

Portability. The Rotomite-6000 CE is transportable anywhere in the US (as is the Rotomite-6000) on a step-deck flat bed.

Great visibility. Note the Operator's clear view of dredging operations from the forward positioned cab with large windows on all four sides on the Rotomite-6000 CE. The new cab (with optional air and heat) is accessible from either side of the dredge for improved convenience, productivity, and safety.
