Safety Guard to BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards
This Guarded Drum Tipper was supplied complete with a safety guard to meet the guidelines of BS EN 14120:2015 Safety of Machinery Guards. The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm stainless steel box section and 2.0mm stainless steel sheet. The safety guard encloses the Guarded Drum Tipper to a height of 2200mm on two sides, 1800mm on the tipping side with a hinged guard door on the fourth side. The guard door is electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the Guarded Drum Tipper from operating when the door is open. Additionally, the guard door can only be opened when the lift carriage is at the down position to prevent access whilst a load is raised.
Guarded Drum Tipper Electrical Control
This Guarded Drum Tipper is fitted with an IP65 Stainless Steel Control Panel which is mounted on the main column at a convenient position to give good maintenance access under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 (PUWER). Upper and Lower end of travel limit switches are positioned to prevent inadvertent adjustment or damage but are easily adjustable by trained personnel for fine adjustment on site. The control panel incorporates the following controls; Up, Down, Guard Release, Emergency Stop and a Reset Facility.
The Guarded Drum Tipper operation is latched so that pressing the ‘Up’ push button once will raise the lift to the full tip position. Once the product has been discharged, pressing the ‘Down’ push button once will return the Guarded Drum Tipper to the full down position. The control panel has a volt free pair of contacts which can be used to connect a ‘Call to Run’ signal if required.
