Tramspread Tanker Booms
From Slurry Tankers
The hydraulic folding TRAMSPREAD Tanker Booms are built to a high quality and are fully galvanised. Attaching booms to most makes of tanker is a simple operation. Mounted by a 4-point fixing to the slurry tanker and a 6' tank outlet, the TRAMSPREAD 6m Dribble/12m Twin spread nozzle Combination Bar is one machine capable of performing two duties. With left and right sluice valves closed and central sluice valve open, slurry is delivered to the macerator and evenly distributed down the dribble outlets to the ground. To switch from 6m Dribble to 12m Twin Nozzle Spread, simply open the left and right sluice valves and close the central sluice valve, thus directing the slurry away from the macerator and through the booms to the twin spread nozzles, achieving a 12m wetted width.
With attention to setting of height and output angle on the twin outlet boom it is possible to produce a spread pattern with a coefficient of variation of below 20% in the field.
Without macerator, TRAMSPREAD Combination Bars are available in 6m Dribble/12m Twin Nozzle spread and 7m Dribble/18m Twin Nozzle spread.
When used as a Dribble Bar, unique TRAMSPREAD Pinch Valves balance the pressure in the boom before allowing slurry to the ground, thus giving even distribution. To change from Dribble to Twin Nozzle Spread, simply fold each dribble hose around its respective pinch valve. This effectively closes off all dribble outlets. Remove end caps and fix in place the 90° nozzle bodies and Bauer spread nozzles.
