What is the AN Tipper
The Project

The AN tippers are hydraulically driven by a 62kW diesel powered hydraulic power source designed and manufactured by Olitek. The specifications include full fluid bunding, E-Stops and safety interlocks integrated between the tipping controls and hydraulic power unit.

The controls comprise of 2 easy to use operator control consoles (one for each tipper) that allow the safe control of 4 functions.

  1. Tipping,
  2. Container Vibration to dislodge sticky prill
  3. Auger start/stop and direction
  4. Container lock down control and monitoring

The system has been designed with interlocks to ensure the equipment cannot put the operator or equipment in danger due to incorrect functions being operated at the wrong time.

Our client approached us requiring an improvement in the power supply, controls and overall safety of an AN Prill dispensing work platform through the implementation of an advanced hydraulic and electrical control system. Through careful risk assessment and design Olitek exceeded our client’s expectations in the delivery of this set of AN Tipping Frames control package and power unit.
