Skip turner P104-000
skip turner from Soil Recovery A/S is designed to empty cuttings skips,
series P102 (also manufactured by Soil Recovery A/S). The skip turner
can also be modified for other types of offshore containers. Please
contact Soil Recovery A/S to see if your type of skips will fit in to
our P104 system.
skip turner requires a forklift or a crane with a minimum capacity of
10.000 kg. A catwalk can be mounted around the skip turner for easy
access to clean the skips.
improve the emptying of the skips, a vibrator is mounted on the “bed”,
the vibrator starts automatically when the turning bed is rotated 180°.
The time interval for vibration function can be adjusted.
skip turner is operated through a wire remote control or a radio remote
control. The rotating and vibration function requires a signal from the
clamping claws before they can be operated. Until the claws have an
optimum hold on the skip bottom frame these functions cannot be
skip turner can be mounted above a single storage pit, or on a double
crane girder to make it able to operate on top of all storage pits. This
is an advantage when client’s materials have to be segregated through
the whole treatment process.
Experience through operation had shown us that a skip can be emptied and
washed within 15 min.
Operation of the skip turner
Open the doors on top of the skip and fix the lifting slings on the side
rails. Place the skip in the turning bed with a forklift. Activate the
claws via remote control to clamp the skip. The claws are covered with
nylon plates to protect the bottom frame of the skip. When the claws
have a proper hold on the bottom frame, drive the skip turner to the
dump area/storage area and rotate the skip through 180°.
Once it has
rotated through 180° the
vibration motor will start automatically. Rotate the
turning bed approximately 90°
back (the actuators have load retaining valves) to clean the skip inside
and outside with a pressure washer. Finally turn the skip back to 0°,
drive the skip turner back to its loading/unloading point, release the
clamps and remove the skip.
