A large pharmaceutical company who were already using our drum trolleys in ATEX designated areas were struggling to find ways to safely de-palletise and transport plastic carboys containing highly concentrated acid.
The answer lay in designing a new head for our straddle de-palletiser which could also be used with the trolleys in other areas covered by DSEAR. By supplying both the standard and special head, the de-palletiser could be used for carboys plus a wide range of drums. An extended lift on the straddle de-palletiser enabled the carboys to be stored on a spill pallet.
Bespoke equipment can be very expensive but a simple redesign of the lifting head together with the extended lift improved safety, reduced the risk of acid contaminating the environment with little more investment than for standard equipment.BACK TO APPLICATIONS
