TheX-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.
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
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.
