ATEX Pedestrian Stacker Truck

STP07-FAC01-Ex

Our pneumatic-hydraulic forked stacker truck fills a gap in the market. Traditionally ATEX stacker trucks are either manual-hydraulic or electric-hydraulic powered, these can be impracticable and expensive. Our air-powered stacker trucks use an airline connection to power the hydraulics, the unit is fully certified for both gas (G) and dust (D) hazardous areas, zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.

Key product features

Fully compliant lift system

Fully compliant lift system

Our qualified engineers install pneumatic circuits and mandatory safety features such as emergency stops and blocking valves. Operators simply plug-in an airline to enable the functions, they then press the operate button and actuate the main lever to lift and lower loads. Should the airline be disconnected for any reason, the forks will remain in place and the load will remain safe.

ATEX-certified for gas and dust zones 1, 2, 21 and 22

It is vital that only certified equipment is used when explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres exist. Our pneumatic-hydraulic pedestrian stacker is certified for use in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 environments. Each of our ATEX stacker trucks are designed to ensure electrical continuity, a path to ground is always present. With each ATEX model we supply a manufacturer’s EU Declaration of Conformity which states compliance with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU.

Stainless steel clad forks

Stainless steel clad forks

To reduce the risk of spark generation we fit our ATEX stacker trucks with stainless steel clad forks; should the forks contact the ground the chance of a spark is drastically reduced. The stainless cladding is of an extremely high standard and is very strong and robust.

Hot-rolled lifting channels

Hot-rolled lifting channels

To keep you safe and the unit stable, we use hot-rolled steel channels in the manufacture of the lifter. These channels provide a sturdy basis for your lifting operations.

Controllable rear-wheel steering

Controllable rear-wheel steering

Ackermann rear-wheel steering gives you maximum directional control when lifting pallets and IBCs. The wheels are 160mm in diameter and contain two rubber-sealed (RS) precision bearings. Park brakes are fitted on all models to keep the machine stationary during use or storage. Custom leg configurations can be provided should you need to straddle a large vessel or container.

Optional features

Electric-hydraulic lift

For non-ATEX applications we adapt an STP07 (pneumatic unit) into an STE07 (electric unit). On-board batteries then power the hydraulic lift function.

Variable leg dimensions

When machinery integration is critical we will modify leg dimensions to suit your facility.

Sale or return

In the UK we can supply certain equipment on a sale-or-return basis, meaning you can use a unit on-site for seven days with no obligation to buy it once the trial period is up. Find out more here.
