PROFI I-Series slurrytanker

The KAWECO PROFI I slurrytankers stand out because of their light, yet stable construction. The tankers can easily be fitted with a dribble bar applicator with a working width up to 15m. Thanks to the modular set-up the tankers are easy to adjust according to your needs.

Be ready for the future

All PROFI I slurrytankers are mechanically able to to fit an additional dribble bar applicator. This means that you are always ready for the future, even with changing legislations. Thanks to the stable construction of the tanker, the applicator (trailing shoe or dribble bar) can be upgraded to a maximum working width of 15m. KAWECO has strong relationships with several suppliers of premium applicators.

Tanker and chassis

Integrating the undercarriage in the tanker decreases the tare weight while at the same it increases the stability of the machine. Thanks to the double wheel arches, the axles can be mounted on top of the spring assembly of the buggy. This results in a low centre of gravity and a maximum height of 3.25m (with a tyre size of 750/60R30.5). For optimum protection the tanker undergoes a special treatment. The tanker gets covered with a zinc layer (galvanization). To be able to spray the zinc layer properly, it gets thoroughly sanded first. This treatment results in a tanker protection that will be corrosion-proof for years and that is easy to clean. An option is to spray the tanker in two different colours. The inside of the tanker is treated with a special epoxy-resin. Thanks to its thickness and flexibility the tanker is better able to withstand any circumstances.

Drawbar

The very narrow drawbar makes a PROFI I tanker very easy to manoeuvre. The tankers standardly comes with a rear free steering axle. When the tanker is optionally fitted with forced steering, the steering cylinder is placed on the left, next to the drawbar. Because of the crash protection the maximum steering angle is limited. The system is installed to protect the steering cylinder. The coupling height can be changed with the extra holes in the drawbar. As an option, the drawbar can be fitted with hydraulic drawbar suspension, which results in greater comfort.

Pumps and slurry piping with PTW tankers

The PROFI I tankers are available as vacuum (VC version), rotary lobe pump (PTW version) and eccentric screw pump (ESP version) tankers. By default, the PTW tankers are delivered with a Vogelsang VX186-184Q pump. This pump delivers 4.266 l/min at 600rpm. Thanks to a unique slanted plate in front of the entry of the pump any contamination will be caught in between the two rotors. This results in less damage to the lobes and the casing of the pump. Click here to see a video from Vogelsang Injection System. As an option we have a Vogelsang VX186-260Q pump with a capacity of 6,000l/min at 600rpm available. To guarantee a high degree of operational reliability and high pump capacity the PTW models come with a standard special pump chamber. This is mounted before the pump and guarantees a minimum amount of slurry in the intake piping of the pump. Thanks to the continuous filling of the pump it can never run dry and it will reach a negative pressure a lot faster. This will ultimately increase the capacity of the pump and reduce wear.

Advantages of the PTW-tanker are: precise dosing and high filling capacity. The filling of the tank remains guaranteed, regardless of the thickness of the slurry. In addition, the filling capacity is better maintained with greater suction depth. Possible limitations of the PTW-tanker are: relatively high maintenance costs and more wear and tear. The weight of the machine is also increased by the required piping.

Pumps and slurry piping at VC tankers

All PROFI I vacuum tanks are equipped as standard with very high quality BP vacuum pumps. The standard pumps have a compressor capacity of no less than 13,500 L/min. This capacity is realised by a rotor with 4 inclined rotor blades. The blades are cooled and lubricated by an oil drip pump. In order to further improve the cooling and to keep the capacity at the same level during the work, the pumps are standard equipped with direct air injection. When the pump is at a standstill, a special valve ensures that the vacuum is maintained.

Advantages of the vacuum tank include: little wear and tear, low maintenance costs and low own weight. Disadvantages are: the dosage, the capacity during filling and unloading. Furthermore, during filling, the slurry is, as it were, pulled apart by the air displacement. As a result, the tank is never completely filled.

Pumps and slurry piping at ESP tankers

The PROFI I ESP tanks are standard equipped with high quality WANGEN worm pumps, with a capacity of 4,000 l/min at 540 rpm. Larger worm pumps are optionally available. The WANGEN pump has a compact design and is built lengthwise underneath the tank. In this way, the slurry route consists of as few bends as possible. Just like the PTW version, the ESP version is equipped with a three-way valve for switching between filling and emptying.

The advantages of the worm pump are: the large passage of unwanted parts in the slurry and the low maintenance costs.

KAWECO PROFI I OPTIONS

Every KAWECO tank is standard equipped with a high-quality treatment. The inside is fitted with a two-component EPOXY resin. The outside is scoped and sprayed with two-component polyurethane lacquer. The standard colour is KAWECO white with orange.
Two RAL colours are available as an option.

This treatment is many times more durable than a zinc layer and will retain its colour even after years.

Two-compartment system, to maintain drawbar pressure during application of slurry (only possible with PTW/ESP). This system ensures that optimum pressure is maintained on the drawbar during application of slurry by leaving slurry in the front chamber.

Filling opening with hydraulic slide on manhole (600 mm). With this filling opening one can easily fill the tank with an external pump. The hatch is equipped with a bearing work to ensure a good sealing.

Hydraulic forced steering: steering rod on the left 250mm next to and at the same height as the towing point. For heavier machines with larger tyres, it is recommended to use hydraulic steering for better manoeuvrability. This also applies when driving backwards a lot.

Hydraulic drawbar suspension. The PROFI I can be equipped with a suspended drawbar. This enhances the driving comfort. Especially when driving a lot on the road.

Maxi filler 8 “mounted centrally under the tanker. With the KAWECO maxi filler you can fill from both sides with a hand valve. The maxi filler is recommended for thicker slurry or when the slurry has to be drawn from a deeper cellar. The maxi filler also relieves the slurry pump, making it less susceptible to wear and tear.

Stonecatcher 8 “without cutting unit. The Stone Catcher is recommended when there are often objects in the slurry such as stones. To prevent damage to the pump or distributors of the applicator, it is in many cases advisable to build a stone catcher. Even in the case of a vacuum tank, this prevents blockages in the distributor(s).

Stonecatcher 8 “with hydraulically driven cutting unit (25 l / min). The Stone Catcher is recommended when there are often objects in the slurry such as stones. To prevent damage to the pump or distributors of the applicator, it is in many cases advisable to build a stone catcher. Even in the case of a vacuum tank, this prevents blockages in the distributor(s).

8″ Andockpoint on top/back of the tanker. With an andock funnel, the PROFI I is also perfect for use as a nursetank.

Docking arm 8″ right with valve and hydraulic slewing ring.
The suction arm relieves you of daily work and allows you to fill up quickly and easily with a docking station. If there is a wish for a larger suction arm, choose the PROFI II.
Optionally in combination with a maxi filler for optimal capacity.

Control: 1 DA tractor can be used for 5 different functions. The Easy-Go is the easiest option for joystick control. When choosing a control system, it is important to consider how many functions the tanker needs. Up to 5 functions can be operated with an Easy-Go system. When a lot of oil is required or a applicator needs to be controlled, you can choose for a Load-Sensing control.

The Load-Sensing adjusts the oil flow to the demand of the tank, so that oil is not pumped around unnecessarily. With Load-Sensing many functions are easy to operate. KAWECO Load sensing valveblock with filter and assembly board with control box.
