Spreader model 8310 is a telescopic top spreader for handling of laden ISO containers up to 45 tonnes. 8310 is designed for mounting on Ship To Shore (STS) cranes.
The strong and basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. Beam sections dimensioned to absorb not only the
vertical, but also the very considerable horizontal forces.
The twistlock system is manufactured in a very rugged design and is well-proven since many years. 8310 has hardened, penduling ISO quick exchange twistlocks, hydraulically activated with electrical and mechanical interlocking against faulty locking and unlocking.
Telescoping is powered by one hydraulic cylinder in each beam.
The four corner flippers are each powered by two hydraulic cylinders mounted well protected.
Double electric motor and pump assemblies assure simultaneous telescoping of both beams. The spreader can be operated with one electric motor and pump.
CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM
For safety and reliability reasons, the control voltage on the spreader is always converted to 24V DC. Electrical systems monitor the state of the spreader at all times.
Indicator lights advise the operator when the spreader is correctly seated, locked or not locked. Each signal is a precondition for the important protection functions of the spreader, such as twistlock activation, telescoping and lift interrupt.
