Soilmec’s SR-65 EVO
Provided by Soilmec North America Inc.
Thanks to an impressive list of best in-class advantages and class-exclusive features, The new Soilmec SR-65 EVO reaches new levels of performance and comfort. It does its best in LDPsegmental casing technology and deep CFA piles. These targets are achieved by using a compact structure, a heavily reworked geometry that features the smartest transport configuration, a new range of rotary head and an updated electronic system.
The SR-65 EVO has been thought to be smart and flexible. It can be set to transport with the kelly bar still mounted on the mast for a quick rig set up. The kelly bar and counterweight can be removed to get the transport weight below 110,000 pounds. The compact rotary head conveys 190,657 lbf-ft of torque, to overcome hard ground conditions. Set on a special cradle, it allows to change the rotary axle spacing that can be set from 2.5 feet to three feet, four inches. The 74,186 lbf winch-crowd system, with 16m stroke, makes the SR-65 EVO a leading machine in the segmental casing market.
The SR-65 EVO is powered by a Cummins QSL9 Tier 4 final Diesel engine with an automatic low idle system to optimize fuel consumption. With open crankcase ventilation filters, particulate filters and a high temperature regeneration system the rig can get up to 90 per cent reduction of particulates and up to 50 per cent reduction in nitrogen oxides. It provides a power of 350 HP that can be easily set up to offer a power surplus up to 379 HP, making the rig capable of easily overcoming the most difficult situations. The SR-65 EVO is built in compliance with the new EN 16228 standards with special features for easier accessibility, more visibility, and safer maneuverability. The rig is equipped with handrails on the platform, a video-camera kit with a dedicated 7-inch monitor, and adjustable mirrors to see a full 360 degrees. The rig’s completed with a radio remote-control board for rig loading and unloading from trucks, and an automatic acoustic alarm during rig traveling and turret rotation. The geometry of the base machine, the engine and heat exchangers layout, fiberglass canopies, and the insulating system, lead the SR-65 EVO to be the most silent rig in its category.
