The Chemical & Coatings Industries Use RICO’s high capacity Equipment in dusty and wet environments
Industry Showcased: Chemical and Coatings
Capacity 15,000 LBS
This vehicle offered a high capacity narrow isle solution for maneuvering top heavy stainless steel totes with unprecedented safety.
This 15,000 lb capacity high-lift rider truck was designed to transport 4,000 liter totes.
Due to the operating environment, the truck was constructed in accordance with RICO Dusty and Wet Environment specifications. More stringent than type EE, Dusty and Wet Environment construction provides a degree of protection against the ingress of solid foreign objects, dust particles, water, oils and coolants.
Some of the provisions made for Dusty and Wet Environments are:
- Stainless steel pins and axles.
- Plated or stainless fasteners.
- Sealed bearings and self-lubricating bushings.
- Sealed electric motors.
- Electronics are protected by NEMA enclosures.
- Sealed switches and buttons.
The battery compartment on this truck was completely enclosed to allow the customer to use regular type E industrial batteries.
Other features include a CCTV system with a forward facing camera, an access control and monitoring system, and an elevated operator platform for clear visibility above the low-profile mast.
