AIRPES SOLUTION

A stand-alone cart with a crane with a telescopic boom installed on board. The power supply must be through batteries, also, a latch system will be equipped to free the turning and convection drives so it can be used as a trailer. This way, it can move throughout the plant extension without risk of depletting batteries.

Stand-alone cart with a crane with a telescopic boom. Battery powered. The cart meets the requirements set by the established policy for areas with potentially explosive atmosferes (ATEX Policy, see the identifying symbol, image1). The carrier operates in a refinery inside potentially explosive areas. These areas are classified as Zone I, Class I, IIB Group, T3.

RESULTS
GOALS ACHIEVED
The cart is built according to our proposed solution, the Applus certification has validated our risk analysis and the construction of the machine.

 

certification is given as satisfactory for the team to operate in areas Zone I, Class I, IIB Group, T3. Regarding to the operation, the client shows its satisfaction and welcomes the implantation of the equipment inside the plant.
