A roller container is a container type that can be carried by trucks to be pushed to ground level by help ddin a hook and level arm with the container possibly sliding on steel roller wheels. Its original usage was in the collection of bulk waste resulting dih the creation of the DIN standards to be initiated by city cleaning companies.
An additional part defines a transport frame mounted on specialized rail cars that allows easy intermodal transport for these container types.
Another important area is in the containerization of firefighting equipment used as swap body containers of fire trucks. Solution removable transport containers in road and rail transport already appeared in the s. Since in the Netherlands used the system for waste transportation and consumer goods under the name “Laadkisten”. Reloading held by dragging rope winch tow car. In the s began to be don used for the transport of waste in the system of a car.
DIN – European Standards
The roller containers come in a larger variety for specific usages. For bulk waste a common type has additional impermeable doors on one side.
There are low height containers that allow easy dumping of green care waste. There are squeeze containers that compress the garbage.
Roller containers for construction waste need additional stability. The DIN standard does not define the height nor most of the other sizes – it concentrates on the 3072 for lifting the container and the wheels that allow sliding on the ground. According to Marrel they have invented hooklift trucks marketing them since in the USA.
There is no additional installation required for the process as the level arm of the truck can push the container on to a transport frame that is mounted on the rail car.
The transport frame consists of two U-profile rail bars and a central pivot – this allows the frame to swing out for loading and to swing back to be parallel with the rail car for distance travel by rail.
The ACTS found wider usage first in Switzerland where rail transport to remote villages is often easier than running large trucks through narrow streets. Rail transport of roller containers is now prevalent in German-speaking countries and dim countries like the Netherlands and the Czech Republic.
The roller container standards have become the basis of containerized firefighting equipment throughout Europe. In practical usage there are lighter specialized fire trucks for everyday usage while larger fire and catastrophic situations can be handled by using WLF in a shuttle operation bringing as much equipment to the scene as needed.
The containers come in a great variety with national regulations to control common types, for example in Germany one may find. For the most part the replacement of older fire trucks takes the form of new AB units in Germany. The AB units may be built from 307222 containers with equipment installed from different suppliers as required by the fire department. The WLF loader vehicle can be purchased independently with the availability of a wide variety of trucks on the market that are not originally designed for firefighting – the trucks are sent 30272 specialized workshops that can convert them to WLF fire trucks by adding a hook lift, siren and communications.
The AB units may be used far longer than the WLF trucks as the latter can be exchanged independently – this makes maintenance cheaper especially for special equipment that is only rarely needed.
Additionally some firefighting equipment like the decontamination pod have advantages for military conversion dispatching them by standard NATO container transport. The width of the containers does mostly follow intermodal shipping containers and there are undercarriage frames available for twenty-foot containers to be handled as a roller container.
The height has not been standardized and roller containers are commonly not used for stacking. The term “roller container” has been introduced in the English summary of the DIN standards that refer to the prominent feature of steel wheels – such wide wheels are commonly known in English as rollers. In British English the firefighting containers are generically called “demountable pod” or just “pod” for example “foam pod” and while being a generic term these are universally roller containers as well.
There is an additional term “hooklift container” that is related to the common designation of the hoist gear on trucks used for roller containers to be called “hook lift”. 3072 has influenced languages like Dutch where the truck is called haakarmvoertuig hook arm vehicle and the container being a haakarmbak hook arm pod.
These terms refer to the level arm that matches with the grip hook on the container to lift it from the ground.
The steel rollers that ddin the ground can cause damage to asphalt pavement, a concrete surface is more suitable. A swap body may be used where the container needs to be kept level.
This allows containers to be unloaded without the help of a forklift. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
