Cable pusher BKS 400
Whether in power stations, industrial buildings or shipbuilding industry, there is only a very confined space for cable laying. The BKS 400 is the perfect tool for these conditions:
• lightweight – only 35kg
• compact – discharging height= 210mm
• versatile – for Ø 11 – 70mm + additional capstan
• high capability – pulling-/pushing power = 400dN
The BAGELA cable and pipe pushing unit BKS 400 is designed for working sites with confined space, and is to be used also within buildings, power plants or on ships. It can be positioned directly into the cable tray because of the low weight and dimensions. The single capstan can be used for pulling in cables or pipes; the pushing device is also able to push or to pull in glass fibre rods with a diameter starting from 11mm.
The cable passes over two pairs of propelled pulleys. Two counter pulleys press the cable into the grooves of the two driving pulleys. The tapered pulleys consist of a special high elastic and wear resistant rubber material, thus ensuring adequate friction.
The hydraulic power pack is connected with the pusher BKS 400 by two hydraulic hoses; the operation can be easy managed from the ground, also if the pusher is fixed in a tray.
The hydraulic drive of the BKS 400 can be operated by a separate power pack or by another machine like an excavator, if the below listed parameters can be provided. The connecting hoses between the BKS 400 and the power pack are equipped with a flow divider, which guarantees the infinitely variable adjusting of speed.
