Brief overview of the Products:
TATA 3 KL SPRAY TANK TRUCK on LPT 709 CNG — Keeping in mind the unsafe air pollution in Delhi Intra city, the Spray Tank truck are designed to control air pollution and provide an environment-friendly solutions to the vendors. The mist formed by sprinkler nozzles fitted in the water tanker helps in suppressing the dust particles. This product is available on CNG platform and is prescribed by various regulatory bodies.
TATA 3.5 CuM Litter Picker on LPT 407 CNG – Built on a more powerful and sturdier truck chassis, the machine has higher container volume of 3500 Ltrs. as compared to the small Litter pickers which has a volume of 300-400 Ltrs. This enhances the productivity of the vehicle and can be used continuously for a much longer time. The machine has an auxiliary engine, which operates as a compressor as well as drive the vacuum suction centrifugal blower. The material being suctioned is separated from the airstream with the help of a cyclonic separator installed in the machine container hopper of volume 3500 Ltrs. The fine dust is further separated from the airstream by the imported cartridge bag filters provided in the container, ensuring only clean air is exhausted from the machine’s centrifugal blower discharge.
The product does not require manual handling of the collected waste as the material collected is being suctioned directly in the machine collection hopper and is being discharged by hydraulic tipping of the container. The collected spillages in the machine hopper are taken to the dumping ground and are discharged by hydraulic tipping of the container. The discharge door locking and lifting is also hydraulic assisted. Though the bag filters are being continuously cleaned with automatic compressed air purging system, there is no need of frequent replacement of collection bags. The vehicle is designed to suction horticulture spillages like leaves, horticulture waste; and littered spillages like small cans, water bottles, cardboard boxes, plastic boxes etc. lying alongside the road.
India’s outlook on urbanization is undergoing a paradigm shift, as there is a strong focus on urban planning keeping in mind the various challenges around transportation needs of the burgeoning modern cities.
