The FRUTIGER Company AG will present world premiers under the corporate slogan “Power in Tigers and Whales” in the two product areas wheel washing systems and Scrapedozers.
Dirty public roads are tolerated less and less by the legislator and the public. For many years Wheel Washing Systems from the company FRUTIGER under the brand name “MobyDick” are working in many operations worldwide. Whenever contaminated trucks from construction sites, landfills, extraction, industrial and recycling companies are driving directly to the public road, the Wheel Washing Systems MobyDick are preventing dangerous contamination from getting onto the roads and highways. At the forthcoming bauma, FRUTIGER will be presenting several models from their large range of systems.
As a world first, FRUTIGER will show a totally new Demucking System (Fig. 1) which was especially designed for heavy operation in the Oilsand mining area of Canada. With this innovation it’s about cleaning construction machines from the construction and mining industry after operation from very sticky dirt to carry out repair and service work. The MobyDick OS combines high and low pressure wash technique. The newly developed washing technique is also suitable for applications in other industries. Wherever the low pressure, as used in the tire wash, is not sufficient to wash off strong stubborn and sticky dirt, the combination of high-and low-pressure brings excellent results.
With bauma 2013, FRUTIGER also completes the development of a new Scrapedozer generation. Following the presentation of the T-18 TIGER with a bucket capacity of 18 m3 at the last bauma 2010, the T-12 TIGER is now available (Fig. 2). This model with a bowl capacity of 12 m3 will replace the SR 2000 which is still in use today. Along with the appreciated benefits of SR 2000, including the low ground pressure, agility and a similar weight distribution, the new T-12 TIGER is also equipped with all the technologies that have been developed for the T-18 TIGER. Therefore the two new models complement one another. The big T-18 is ideal for large construction sites with good ground and scraping conditions. The smaller T-12 is perfect to work on soft ground and in narrow spaces.
