TITLE
Bitumen safe delivery control unit
ARTICLE
A unit has been designed for the safe unloading of bitumen
at this site. It has a front panel which is hinged and has spring
loaded locking pins. When the tanker is not unloading, the door
can rest upon the top of the unit and is locked in place by secure
spring loaded pins. When the driver hooks up to the loading point,
the pins are released and the door is closed. Once again the pins
lock in place making the door secure.
If for any reason the filling pipe becomes loose or a seal fails, the
bitumen would not spray dangerously but instead be contained
in the unit and drop to the floor. This unit helps protect the driver
and other members of staff.
