An aerospace company needed to store 205 litre drums, one deep on a line of spill pallets situated against a wall in a small, narrow room. The area is zoned under ATEX in the DSEAR regulations but the cost of an intrinsically safe fork lift truck would be prohibitive, regardless of whether there was enough space.
Our most popular de-palletiser is the straddle model but the room was too narrow to allow it and a corner de-palletiser would be impractical. With a requirement for a SWL of 250kg, a compact counterbalanced drum handler was supplied which proved to be a perfect solution.
Far lower in cost than the alternatives, extremely manoeuvrable due to its tiller steering operating on both rear wheels and requiring only a flat surface to operate safely this was a simple, safe and cost effective solution to the problem.BACK TO APPLICATIONS
