Title
(EN) AN IMPROVED SHEETING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE BACHAGE AMELIORE
Abstract
(EN)
A sheeting system is disclosed to respectively open and cover an open-topped container body to allow goods to be loaded into or from the container and to be covered during transit. The system has a tarpaulin sheet fixed along one of its edges to one edge of the container body. The sheet is fixed along its second edge to a pivotally mounted arm (14) whose pivoting action draws the second edge of the sheet from one side of the container to the other. A roller means (15) is provided intermediate to the first and second edges of the sheet to accordingly engage the sheet and so roll the sheet up when it is not covering the container. Actuators (12) to drive the pivotally mounted arm (14) are operated hydraulically and, where two actuators (12) are used, using a balanced system. Arcuate supports (10A, 10B) can be used to lift the sheet above the load.
(FR)
L'invention a pour objet un système de bâchage pour respectivement ouvrir et recouvrir un corps de conteneur à toit ouvrant et permettre de charger des marchandises dans le conteneur ou de les décharger de ce dernier et de les recouvrir pendant le transport. Le système comporte une bâche fixée le long d'un de ses bords à un bord du corps de conteneur. La bâche est fixée le long de son second bord à un bras monté en pivotement (14) dont le pivotement tire le second bord de la bâche d'un côté du conteneur vers l'autre. Un rouleau (15) est prévu entre les premier et second bords de la bâche pour engager correctement la bâche et ainsi enrouler la bâche lorsqu'elle ne recouvre pas le conteneur. Des vérins (12) permettant d'entraîner le bras monté en pivotement (14) sont actionnés hydrauliquement et, lorsqu'on utilise deux vérins (12), on a recours à un système équilibré. Des supports courbes (10A, 10B) peuvent être utilisés pour lever le prélart au-dessus de la charge.
