Spring Balancer Track Systems
Auto Extract Systems sliding balancer track system is an ideal solution for emergency vehicles that features a length of a crush-resistant exhaust hose that is held by a spring balancer mechanism which runs along a length of steel extruded track. The hose is directly coupled to the exhaust pipe on the emergency vehicle via a suitably sized hose and grabber nozzle. This nozzle is secured to the exhaust via compressed air-fed from a compressor via the hose and nozzle assembly.
How Do Spring Balancer Track Systems Work?
As an emergency vehicle’s engine starts up, exhaust emissions are detected by pressure sensors that are mounted within the rail. This, in turn, activates the local exhaust ventilation system’s fan that’s controlled through an electrical panel for as long as it can detect vehicle exhaust fumes flowing, and subsequently, for 30 seconds afterwards.
As an emergency vehicle begins to drive through the bay, the hose and nozzle tracks along the rail until it reaches a predetermined position, where an air release switch automatically deflates the pneumatic grabber nozzle to release it from the vehicle.
- Profile rail - Made from anodised aluminium with integrated guide rails. End stops with dampers made from yellow chromate steel
- Trolley - Made from yellow chromate steel with 5 ball-bearing wheels
- Balancing block - Balancing block in reinforced polyamide, inversely progressive with 4.5 m wire and bracket for trolley
- Hose - Heat-resistant, rubberised fabric in EPDM/polyester. Coil, polyamide. Hose length, 7m
- Hose breakage connection - Shock-resistant, manufactured in EPDM rubber. Protects the hose against heavy loads without the hose, nozzle or vehicle being damaged. Special, stable brackets are available for fitting the rail
