STRUCTURE AND OPERATION
An extension arm composed of three segments with hydraulic plunged pump and Ø250 mm suction hose is fixed in swivel seating at the tank’s back door of PN tanker. After activating tractor’s hydraulic system a control panel should be used to lift an end of the arm with the pump from a drain tub and plunge it into the tank with slurry. Then the pump should be started to fill the tank. Excess of liquid will be carried away with Ø125 mm hose to a septic tank. The pump with the arm should be placed in the drain tub.
By closing and opening adequate valves prepare the tanker to start rear pump which:
- will deliver liquid through a hose on arm and pump to another tank or machine operating on the field
- will deliver liquid on spreading spoon or discharge hose
The whole arm is hydraulically controlled through a panel controlling solenoid valves.
