Holding Valves on Hopper Lift
Hose failure protection is necessary on the hopper lift cylinders. The valve should be mounted onto or into the actuator.
Refuse vehicles commonly use “crank shaft” driven pumps which need to be unloaded at a low pressure when the vehicle is travelling at high speeds.
Flow regulator Control for Attachments
It is often less expensive to use combination style flow regulators to control the flow going to the bin lift. These can be supplied with pressure control and electrical switching.
Bin Lift Controls
Bin lift controls are varied. These two examples show safety in operation and proportional control allowing artificial intelligence through an on-board computer.
