Rear Loader – Tailgate Hydraulic System (1.5M3)
ACOMPACTOR Rear Loader Garbage Truck Tail Gate consist of multiple hydraulic cylinders in different size and shapes for the required compaction ratio.
TAILGATE : Tailgate is located at the back of the compactors body and connected to the body with two hinges . When necessary, the tailgate opens and discharges the waste inside. Tailgate is produced from high strength steel. Tailgate is a whole with hopper and compaction plate. With the help of the guidance mechanism, compaction plate opens and operates. The hopper is used for loading waste. To prevent the tailgate from accidental opening, it is connected to the body with two hooks. The tailgate opens with the help of two hydraulic cylinders. When necessary to go into the body for maintenance, the support arm must be screwed and fastened. (3)
COMPACTION PLATE and POLYAMIDE : Compaction plate is made of high strength steel. Connection elements are made of special quality of steel. Polyamide components are inside the tailgate. (5)
Compaction plate moves in inclined surface. Compaction plate compacts the collected waste in the hopper into the body.
HOPPER : Hopper is the back of the tailgate in which waste is collected either by hand or by container. The hopper capacity is about 0.8…2.0 m3 depending on truck specs.
COMPACTION RATIO CYCLE : Compaction plate moves initially backward then downward. At this point, the compaction plate compacts the waste in the hopper. While the compaction plate moves up, it also sweeps and compacts all the waste into the body. While compacting the waste into the body, the discharge plate is pushed towards the body of the truck. When the compaction plate reaches it’s final position the compaction cycle is complete. During this cycle, the hydraulic pump provides the necessary pressure to function properly.
CONTAINER HOLDING ARMS : Container holding arms are used when waste loading is made automatically. The arms to hold the container up are operated by two cylinders. This mechanism is controlled by an arm controlled valve and speed is adjustable. (6)
LOADING HEIGHT: When the body is empty and ready for loading, the loading height is designed so that the operator can not touch the compaction plate.
FOOTBOARD : Footboard is the fixed or movable location where the operators will stand while the truck is cruising. (7)
DISCHARGE SYSTEM : System that empty the waste from the refuse truck.
DISCHARGE TIME : After completing the compaction process (body is full), discharge time starts when the tailgate opens and continues until it closes again after discharging the waste.
EMERGENCY STOP BUTTON : Emergency stop button is used in unexpected situations that may happen during the action of compaction plate. Emergency button is located on both sides of the tailgates, when necessary it can be interfered by operators at any time.
RESCUE BUTTON : Rescue button is used after the use of emergency button. When the rescue button is triggered, the compaction system moves upwards immediately.
