SOUND-DAMPING TURBINE WALL
Every leaf or stone that is sucked up moves with the airflow through the suction hose until it hits the impeller. Centrifugal force throws everything against the wall of the turbine where it then follows the contours of the volute housing before ending up in the discharge hose. The turbine wall, therefore, acts as a type of drum that generates a lot of noise. However, Eliet have been able to efficiently absorb the noise from each impact by fitting a suitable rubber lining around the turbine.
The Eliet Truckloader is equipped with a suspension eye to admit suspension eye mounting/lifting. This lift eye is positioned so that the Eliet Truckloader is in equilibrium when lifted. A minimum of effort is therefore required to connect the machine weighing 160 kg to a trailer or a loading platform. You can, furthermore, easily suspend the machine on a van or trailer by using the supplied suspension hooks. The stands can be adjusted to the shape and design of your vehicle.
STEEL IMPELLER WITH TAPERED BEARING
The (6 mm) steel impeller is manufactured from high quality steel and is able to withstand impacts from stones that are sucked in, and also chafing from sand and soil. Although the steel impeller guarantees reliability, this also means that quite some weight rests on the fan shaft. Slight play may occur on the bearing that supports the shaft when subjected to heavy duty cycles. This may have serious consequences for the machine should the bearing not be adjusted. The tapered bearing allows for fast and easy adjustment and, therefore, contributes to improved operational reliability and long service life of the machine.
BELT DRIVE & BRAKE SYSTEM
- BELT DRIVE
Because operational security is of crucial importance, Eliet chose to equip the machine with a belt drive. Thus, the rotation inertia of the heavy turbine doesn’t influence the crankshaft of the engine. In addition it allows for a quicker start of the engine.
- BRAKE SYSTEM
Furthermore, Eliet has designed an uncomplicated but ingenious system where the steel turbine is stopped immediately when declutching the belt. This highly contributes to the safety level of the machine, since not the engine, but the coupling is turned off in a potentially risky situation. This reduces the number of starting procedures considerably, which in turn increases the life of the starter.
In addition, electropneumatic de-clutching control is also provided. The safety level of the machine will increase considerably, since the clutch will be released instead of the engine being shut off should there be a potential threat. The number of starting procedures will be significantly reduced due to this and, therefore, the service life of the starting motor will increase.
360° SWIVELLING DISCHARGE HOSE
The discharge hose with directional louvre has a diameter of 200 mm, just like the suction hose, which makes obstructions virtually impossible. The articulated hose made from welded wear-resistant steel components can swivel through 360°. The nylon pivot point is self-lubricating, so it never becomes blocked by dirt or rust.
The end of the discharge hose is equipped with a deflector flap in order to completely fill the loading space of a lorry. This flap can be adjusted to any angle. The shape of the flap ensures that the airflow does not immediately diverge when it leaves the discharge hose, thus making the airflow easier to direct.
QUICKLY REMOVABLE FRONT GUARD
Something always sticks to the wall with regard to all the material that travels through the turbine. You will need to look for the securing nuts in-between the dirt with standard machines to ensure you can remove the front guard. The front guard of the Eliet Truckloader can be removed in no time at all by using the especially well-considered securing bolts on the outside.
