Slow walking floor and tired of waiting? We have a solution - X-Eject

October 9, 2017

The X-EJECT mechanism was developed in 2013 as a new solution for a more economical and efficient method of compaction and ejection for refuse containers and trailers.
Improving the volumetric efficiency of waste transfer containers is a vital aspect among the industry and our research shows that combined with a fast discharge mechanism, substantial decreases in transportation time and costs are potentially viable.
Comprising of a hydraulic power scissor linkage system, the X-EJECT achieves fast compaction and ejection, without compromising cubic capacity. It is best suited for transporting most types of light – medium weight bulk material and offers the fastest discharge time per cubic meter.

 

X-Eject Advantages

  • Push-out system that retains maximum cubic capacity and payload

  • Shortest tipping time

  • Pushes trailer while discharging refuse

  • Multi-purpose compaction/ejection system

  • Produces an evenly distributed load

  • Vision for B-double ejection in under 5minutes

  • No risk of tipping – unlike side tippers and TOA trailers

  • Moves most types of bulk material

  • Blade jamming dramatically reduced

  • Various configuration types

  • Efficient light weight blade design

  • Patent pending

 

Walking floor Comparison

  • Truck must “walk out” rubbish

  • No compaction possible

  • Difficulty ejecting heavy material

  • Weak sub frame can lead to weak overall body design

  • Expensive high-flow pumps prone to failure

  • Material can bridge (floor walks under load)

  • Jamming, bending and breaking floor slats common

  • Very slow tipping 10-20 minutes

  • Dozer/Compacter is commonly used to clear refuse while emptying

 

Weak under structure and complex bearing arrangement offers minimal body strength and durability
A slow ejection time is the walking floors biggest disadvantage.

On average 10-20minutes is a normal emptying cycle, with dozer operators commonly used to rake rubbish from rear to save time.
Weak aluminum slats are commonly damaged and can be seen as expensive consumables.

 

Push out comparison

  • Vulnerable to pressure intensification where spikes of over 10x normal pressures can occur

  • High maintenance costs

  • Loss in cubic capacity (max 80m3)

  • Requires large amounts of hydraulic oil (350+ litres)

  • Expensive six / seven stage double acting cylinder

  • Limited retracting force causing possible blade jamming

  • Poor weight distribution (reduced weight over prime mover)

  • Long stroke cylinders are more susceptible to excessive side loading, ram bending, miss-staging, buckling and seal failures

  • Not ideal for compaction (cylinder is designed to be completely retracted prior to extending)

  • Slower ejection; over 10 times slower than X-eject

  • Requires reinforced/heavier blade due to lower pushing fixture

  • Commonly used in low ejection cycles per day (1-2)

  • Blade jamming causes excessive side loading thus leading to cylinder damage

A brace is used to reduce side loading, as long stroke cylinders are vulnerable to internal damage or bending.
Double acting telescopic hydraulic cylinders are expensive and costly to maintain and repair.

Bulged sleeve. Commonly seen from stage miss positioning, causing a spike in pressure.
