Overall Cover Dimensions:

  • A. 29.8″
  • B. 40.1″
  • C. 3.1″ top of ring to top of cover
  • D. 0.9″ top of ring to bottom nut

System Weight:

  • Cover and Flange: 92 lbs.
  • Pneumatic Cylinder: 6 lbs.
  • Control Box: 17 lbs.

Overall Control Box Dimensions:

  • E. 9.7″
  • F. 6.9″
  • G. 6.5″
  • H. 6.3″
  • Weather tight seal even when not pressurised
  • Lowest profile design, consequently, there is typically no change in the overall height of tanker
  • Manufactured from durable machined billet (Type 6061) aluminum for precision and the highest operating pressure ratings
  • Food grade seals available
  • Lid slides open supported by a HDPE replaceable slide pivoted on non-load bearing hinge pin, thus reducing wear
  • A vacuum is applied to the seal when it is deflated, retracting the seal into the lid. This minimises scuffing and wear and extends seal life and reliability
  • DOT approved pneumatic fittings
  • The scraper and purge functions minimize buildup, reduce maintenance and extend seal life and reliability
  • Multiple cover operation from one Control Box, up to 4 hatches on a truck unit can be individually controlled
  • Standard operating pressure of 2 bar with units capable of operating at 2.5 bars for rail tankers and specific applications
  • Light-weight aluminum construction and bolt on design means you require minimal structural modifications to your tankers
  • Flip over lid for ease of maintenance and replacement of seal
  • Easy installation to new tankers or can easily be retrofitted to existing vehicle. Installation only takes 3 to 4 man hours using basic tools and components supplied
  • Bundled PVC sheathed airlines for ease of installation, providing abrasion and UV protection. Extremely low consumption of compressed air
  • Safety Feature – If tanker is opened when pressurized, the seal will deflate and it will be very noisy and dusty. However, until the tanker pressure drops below approx. 5 PSI, and it is safe to open the hatch, the pneumatic cylinder is unable to open the hatch fully
  • Optional dust control flange gasket
  • Cylinder is not energized when seal is inflated, thereby extending cylinder life
