Safe discharging of a bitumen tanker with a Panther PLd system
Kässbohrer is Europe’s fastest growing trailer producers due to their quality and innovative solutions in chassis building. Many transport companies make us of the Kässbohrer solutions for the transport of goods for decades.
The manufacturer co-operates with Tele Radio for the development of various wireless solutions on trailers. The systems are easy to install and reliable and really contribute to the safety and comfort. For the Kässbohrer tippers they use a wired and wireless control for the front cylinder that tilts the box and opens the rear door. The Tele Radio Panther 3 buttons transmitter can be used from the cabin as well as outside on a safe distance.
The increased safety by using a wireless remote control can even be better viewed with the bitumen tank trailer that is developed in co-operation with Hoyer Logistics GMBH. For the charging and discharging the driver/operator can use a wired control system attached to the trailer. But with the hot and flammable bitumen the operator needs to respect a safe zone of approximately 6 meters. This is simply possible by using a Panther PLd wireless remote. The user is at a safe distance, has a good view on the trailer, and is able to close the valves immediately and run a away in case of emergency. The transmitter is independently certified for the PLd safety level. The video that can be seen through the link below, shows the unique solution on this bitumen trailer.
Based on this innovation Kässbohrer deserved the IAA Trailer Innovation Award 2017 in the category safety.
