OPTIMUM SAFETY

OPTIMUM SAFETY

Tong box and bag tippers are designed to meet stringent safety standards, featuring a box/bag movement siren and empty beacon, as well as light guards, which meet the full requirements of EC legislation. The light guards become active when the tipper cradle begins to lift and any breaking of the security beams will stop the machine.

HYDRAULIC LID

HYDRAULIC LID

Tong offers an automatic hydraulically operated clamp box lid as an option on all box tippers. The hydraulic lid automatically lowers onto the top of the box once the box is placed in the tipping cradle. This ensures a secure hold of the box within the tipper, and completely removes the chance of anyspillage of crop. When a full clamp lid is fitted, it incorporates a hydraulically opening flow door which opens to release crop once the box is tipped. A half clamp lid can also be fittedmeaning half of the lid is open, so as the tipper lifts in increments, controlled by crop sensors, the crop gently flows out of the box.

FORWARD CONVEYOR

FORWARD CONVEYOR

The option of an in-line forward conveyor is a popular choice for a continuous and even feed of crop from the tipper, as well as offering holding capacity whilst the box or bag is changed. The forward conveyor is fitted at the outfeed of the tipper and is available in two standard options – 1.8m long x 2m wide or 3m long x 2.2m wide. The crop conveyors are powered by inverter direct drive variable speed motors, and a crop sensor fitted to the top of the conveyor controls the tipping mechanism and the even flow of crop from the tipper to the conveyor. Should there be no crop or a gap in the flow of crop on any part of the belt, the crop sensor automatically accelerates the belt until crop reaches the end of the belt, then the speed returns to normal.

CROSS CONVEYOR

CROSS CONVEYOR

Similar to the in-line forward conveyor, the option of a cross conveyor is offered at the outfeed of all Tong tippers. This option helps to ensure a continuous flow of crop, and offers crop-holding capacity whilst the box is changed. It is particularly popular where crop is required to flow at a 90 degree angle from the orientation of the tipper, often where space is limited.
