Sidelifter Buying Guide - What are the parts of container side loader trailer?

TITAN VEHICLE | 2020-05-19


The sidelifter trailer is used for lifting and carrying two 20ft containers or one 40ft container in port,station and freight yard, the trailer's hydraulic systempower is from PTO in tractor truck, it can be operated both wireless remote control and manual.

The side loader trailer consists of a semi-trailer or truck, boom, control system and engine, and is used to transport or load and unload containers. 

The lifting of the container on the right side of the frame is called right-hand lifting, and the lifting of the container on the left side of the frame is called left-hand lifting. The key areas need to ensure that there are no attachments to ensure the operation of the boom, such as the reciprocating movement of the boom Maintenance work of the boom (electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic).


Hydraulic system:

1. Hydraulic pressure gauge

When the hydraulic components and pipelines are operated under normal working pressure or test pressure, there will be no system failure or excessive temperature. The hydraulic system is equipped with a high-pressure filter at the pump outlet and an oil return filter in the oil return line. Used to ensure the cleanliness of hydraulic oil.

2. Pump

The double pump structure is adopted. The theoretical displacement of the single pump is 60L / min, and the combined flow rate can reach 120 L/min. The double pump structure can meet the rapid extension and retraction of the lifting components during no-load and stable and safe operation at full load.

3. Fuel tank

The fuel tank should adopt a single-box double-cavity structure. The cavity and the cavity are completely isolated. One cavity is used to store diesel fuel required for the diesel engine to work, and the other cavity is used to store hydraulic oil. The oil tank should be installed with a level gauge, oil return filter, breathing valve and bottom oil port.

4. Overflow valve

The hydraulic system can realize high-speed (low pressure) and low-speed (high pressure) operation. At high speed, the system pressure passes through the high and low speed relief valve to ensure the safety of high-speed operation. The main control relief valve pressure is set to 4200 Psi during low speed operation, thus ensuring the safety of the system during low speed operation.

5. Hose, rigid pipe and pipe joint

The minimum burst pressure of the hose is at least 4 times the maximum working pressure, and the minimum burst pressure of the hard pipe and joint is at least 2.5 times the working pressure.

7. TITAN side loader trailer is equipped with imported electromagnetic proportional valves for precise control;

8. No-load and heavy-load double-speed operation;

9. The crane adopts a dual-pump dual-circuit hydraulic system, which is not affected by unbalanced load and operates reliably;

10. Hoisting operation adopts intelligent safety protection system to intelligently lock dangerous operations.

11. The vehicle safety control system is equipped with a one-key flameout switch;

12. TITAN self loader trailer is equipped with imported centralized lubrication system, and the electric control is easy to operate.


Installation device:

1. The alarm devices of various safety protection boxes of the container side loader trailer should be accurate, sensitive and reliable.

2. The outrigger cylinder should be equipped with a two-way hydraulic lock to ensure safe operation and driving.

3. The remote control device of the sidelifters is equipped with an emergency stop switch. When an emergency occurs, people can quickly press this button to achieve protection measures.

4. When the boom is folded and retracted, it should be stable, accurate, without crawling, chattering, impact and abnormal increase in driving power. The lifting cylinder of the boom is equipped with a balance valve to ensure that the load stops reliably in the air. When the pipeline suddenly bursts, the balance valve acts as a hydraulic lock to keep the heavy objects stationary. When the crane drops heavy objects, it can control the falling speed of the heavy objects to avoid overspeed. All operating handles and buttons should be light and flexible, work reliably, and be reasonably arranged, and be easy to operate. It should avoid the interference of various manipulating actions or easily cause misoperation.



Maximum lifting height: the vertical height of the container to the upper limit position, the bottom surface of the container to the ground.

Maximum working range: the maximum horizontal distance from the center line of the chain pin to the center of the semi-trailer.

Outrigger horizontal span: The outrigger is opened to the limit position, and it is reliably supported on the ground. The distance between the support center and the center of the semi-trailer.
