LIQUID spreaders implement the liquid spreading technology for road anti-icing or de-icing roads where ice has already formed. Spreading liquids that are used on roads include solutions of sodium, calcium or magnesium chloride or urea.
Designed specifically as a multifunctional device, LIQUID can also be used in the summer as a water tank in combination with a front cleaner mounted on the vehicle. In the summer season, when most of the spreaders remain unused, LIQUID can be used as a tank for cleaning and washing the roads.
LIQUID can be used in the winter for anti-icing or de-icing roads where ice has already formed, or in the summer as a water tank in combination with a front cleaner mounted on the vehicle.
Reduction of operative costs
Liquid spreading reduces the total consumption of salt and increases maximum spreading speed, which results in the reduction of operative costs and negative environmental impact, as well as protecting the traffic infrastructure.
Prolonged spreading efect
Liquid spreading prolongs the spreading effect, i.e. increases residual salinity of the road after the performed spreading.
High precision and efficiency of spreading are enabled by the quality of construction of all spreader components and the EPOS control unit which enables the control of all spreading parameters directly from the vehicle cabin.
LIQUID’s distribution system consists of a ramp with a system of nozzles with variable flow. This patented solution enables high precision of spreading when the vehicle on which the spreader is mounted moves at high speeds. Two different types of nozzles, one of which is used for spreading immediately after the spreader, and the other for left and right lane spreading, provide the possibility not only of a wide spreading pattern, but also of precise control of spreading asymmetry. Liquid is supplied to the distribution system by a high-flow pump.
Simple control and high spreading precision
The operation of all RASCO spreaders is controlled by EPOS control units. Their dedicated development by RASCO experts makes them a leading solution for spreading control and monitoring. EPOS control units are used to control all spreader elements. Control of the spreader’s hydraulic actuators with a system of feedback connections ensures highly precise spreading in all work conditions, while the automated calibration system enables fast and simple calibration of spreading precision. Spreading parameters are not lost when the control unit is turned off and can be automatically activated the next time when the spreading process is started.
All information in real time
ARMS is an information and communication system for control, central monitoring, reporting and optimization of activities related to the maintenance of traffic infrastructure. Monitoring of working hours of people and machines as well as of the used resources (such as the used spreading salt, vehicle fuel etc.) in real time creates a unique possibility to quickly decide on potential saving methods. Unchangeable logs protect the user from liability by providing clear information on any taken action, while the reduced consumption of spreading material at the same time protects traffic infrastructure and its surroundings.
It can be carried out through built in vehicle hydraulics, diesel hydraulic power unit mounted on the spreader, or with the fifth wheel.
Mounting of RASCO spreaders on vehicles
Mounting on tipper box
System for mounting the spreader in a tipper box using RO-RO (Roll-On, Roll-Off) legs and rollers on the device itself is the most common and simplest mounting method. The spreader is easily attached to the tipper box by using tension chains or belts.
Mounting on vehicle chassis
Suitable in situations when the vehicle is used exclusively for road maintenance. Different devices, including the spreader, can be easily replaced on the vehicle chassis using specially designed carrying frames.
Mounting on tipper box balls
Fast and simple mounting using the existing sub-chassis of the vehicle tipper box and a special carrying frame on the spreader. The simplest mounting method that enables complete vehicle multifunctionality.
Mounting on trailers
Spreaders are mounted on tractor or truck trailers, thus becoming independent from the towing vehicle.
Mounting on vehicles equipped with hook-lifts
A specially adjusted spreader frame enables simple mounting on vehicles equipped with a system for raising devices using a hook.
Mounting on vehicles equipped with skip loaders
Simple mounting on vehicles equipped with a container lifting system is enabled by special attachment points on the sides of the spreader.
