Safe discharging of a bitumen tanker with a Panther PLd system
Kässbohrer is Europe’s fastest growing trailer producer due to their quality and innovative solutions in chassis building. For decades, many transport companies have been using Kässbohrer solutions for the transport of goods.
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.
Based on this innovation Kässbohrer deserved the IAA Trailer Innovation Award 2017 in the safety category.
Hoyer Logistics GMBH – Discharging a bitumen tanker with a Panther PLd system
The increased safety gained 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 operator could 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 only possible by using a Panther PLd wireless remote. The user is then at a safe distance, has a good view of the trailer, and is able to close the valves immediately by pressing a remote button and run away in case of emergency.
The chosen transmitter is independently certified for the PLd safety level, and to add an extra security layer, a “pincode” is required to the operator before he can make use of the remote control.
