Grydale hold the patent for manufacturing the only self-propelled dust collector on the market. Track units offer full mobility with variable speeds between 2 – 4 m.p.h. to increase the speed and efficiency of operations. The tracks are hydraulically driven by the Volvo Penta Diesel engine and operated via remote control.
Track mobility allows dust collection units to be positioned in close proximity to dust generating activities, reducing the volume of air requiring treatment and improving the efficiency of whole site operations.
Track units are driven using remote control and are able to move and operate alongside excavation equipment such as road headers and in tunnelling are typically used for bench excavation and cross passages to provide effective dust collection at source where mobility and manoeuvrability is key.
Caster / Wheel
When units need to be repositioned there is limited downtime in construction works as the complete unit can be moved easily using one of the two available options:
- Sliding – the dust collector features compressed rigid castor wheels to allow ease of movement.
- Lifting – the dust collector also has four designated lifting lugs at each corner of the machine allowing the units to be lifted into position.
Hydraulic Stepping System
The Hydraulic Stepping System powers four legs that lift the units up while a pair of skates help to move the unit forward/ backwards. Movement can be repeated to achieve the desired travel distance.
Hydraulic Stepping System available for: JMS 40 M-Series, JMS 50 M-Series and JMS 60 M-Series.
Dust collectors mounted on a skid base offer a cost-effective option. The skid can be dragged using the four towing points at each end of the machine or moved by crane using the four lifting lugs.
