EOS-ENVIRO ISO Container Handling Units - Series ContiLift CHU-40 - are supplied serially with lifting function enabling the equipment to load and to unload full and/or empty 40' or - optionally - 45' ISO Containers within approx. 45 seconds each. On request, the units are provided with an additional tipping cylinder, which allows also a fast emptying of bulk containers with a tipping angle of 45°.
The fast and proven lifting method by a sturdy hydraulic hook arm, which is also produced by usage of wear resistant & high-tensile Steel DOMEX as the sliding cart, enables you to handle the payloads with a cycle time of approx. 45 seconds - compared with approx. 3 minutes in regard to conventional side loaders - as well as to dump sea containers and outsized bins with one and the same unit !
Thanks to the Sliding Cart with Rotating Arm and to the foldable Rear Roller Bearings a very low lifting angle of only 16° is achieved and ensure a smooth loading/unloading - in particular, that goods inside of sea containers are stable on their place without slipping backwards.
No additional mobile crane is needed and all lifting/handling operations are controlled by only one person from the driver's cab - without the necessity to get out during operation or via Radio Remote Control. This, we understand as implemented contribution to your Driver's/Operator's Safety !
The hinged ISO Container Spreader at the boom top section is forced to connect automatically with the upper sea container's corner castings by integrated locking pins whilst both corner castings at the bottom are embraced at first by the extended, hydraulically operated crossbar with locking pins and then safely connected to the Spreader - after retracting of the crossbar – by the automatically inserted locking pins.
By activating the rotating Extension Hook Arm with the hinged Crossbeam Spreader upwardly, the payload is pulled by the Front Carriage onto the semi-trailer chassis and also simultaneously moved in the horizontal direction forwards - respectively for unloading in the opposite way. During the dumping mode the Front Carriage, to which the payload is fixedly connected, is tilted max. 45° by a frontally installed hydraulic cylinder upwards in order to achieve a total emptying. Whilst tipping ISO Containers are secured on the Rear Rollers and also by the front carriage to avoid an accidental release of the payloads.
Due to to the integrated, durable Adapter/Spreader and to the absence of swinging chains, an extremely stable connection between the Rotating Arm and of the payload's ISO Container's corner castings at the front side is ensured - enabling a loading of ISO Containers, Tanks, Camp Buildings etc. also during windy conditions without swinging.
The hydraulically operated Rear Roll Stabilizers make the loading/unloading procedure safe by giving also stability on - a little bit - uneven ground during lifting and dumping of payloads, which are secured during transport with 4, integrated Twist Locks. Due to the fact, that the Rear Roll Stabilizers are installed at the rear side of the semi-trailer, the driver can easily maneuver the prime-mover with semi-trailer backwards directly in front of the payload to be lifted: Additional space for lateral support legs is not required and therefore, your payload can be loaded/unloaded on narrow sites or directly to the edge of mining pits without falling below the safety distance !
To prolong the system life, all of the high resistant Hydraulic Cylinders are double plated and salt spray tested - ensuring a long durability and your satisfaction with that extraordinary & versatile transport logistics system, which is offered with a significantly more favourable price than "conventional" side loaders/sidelifters on the market !
Driven by the prime-mover's P.T.O. or by an auxiliary Diesel engine, operated by Radio Remote Control and secured by Emergency Solenoids, the ContiLift CHU-40 is supplied as a prefabricated Mounting Kit for self-assembling onto a suitable semi-trailer at your site or delivered fully installed by us onto a semi-trailer and therefore, fit for immediate purpose !
So far a low bed semi-trailer is needed, the ContiLift CHU-40 is also suitable to be mounted onto Gooseneck-Semi-Trailers as well as for the usage with B-Double Semi-Trailers - enhancing your transport capacities with one unit !
Necessary documents for obtaining the required homologation in terms of the semi-trailer chassis are provided by us, of course.
