Mobile Access Cart
Safe, and reliable access onto tanker tops is a subject of increasing concern to all engineers and safety managers involved in the area of bulk liquid transfer. The Carbis mobile access cart, or TC10, is designed to provide drivers and operators with a flexible and safe access on to tankers of varying heights, either to sample or load product.
Constructed in either aluminium or carbon steel, these mobile platforms can be moved around a loading bay easily by one person or longer distances with a tractor. Wheels can be specified to run parallel to tanker for areas where space is limited.
It consists of an aluminium flat-step extension ladder with open serrated metal plank steps giving an un-extended height 3m under platform up to an extended height of 5m under platform.
The large (1.6m wide X 2.14m long X 1m deep) cage is attached to a 0.46m wide X 0.725m long platform at the top of the ladder. The cage has a 0.4m walk surface on the inboard side.
To provide easy mobility the access cart is fitted with 0.4m foam-filled wheels. Levelling jacks at each corner provide a stable and firm base for safe ladder extension. The ladder is extended and retracted using a simple hand winch operation and the cart is easily moved around site using a steering handle with tow bar.
The access cart is supplied with CE certification and ATEX compliance.
