Spreader Model 8210 WTP version is a telescopic top spreader for handling of laden ISO, WTP and US-domestic containers up to 40 LT / 41 tonnes. 8210 WTP is designed for mounting on Rail Mounted (RMG) or Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes.
The strong and basic concept offers distinct advantages, such as two parallel telescopic beams, assuring max overlap. The beam sections are 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 well proven since many years. 8210 WTP 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.
Double electric motors and pump assemblies assure simultaneous telescoping of both beams. The spreader can be operated with one electric motor and pump.
The WTP option built into the spreader endbeams allows the operator to hydraulically change the twistlock positions to handle ISO and US-domestic containers as well as WTP containers.
CONTROL AND PROTECTION SYSTEM
The control voltage on the spreader is always converted to 24V DC for safety and reliability. 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.
