Air Brakes and Speed

Air Brakes and Speed.

Air Brakes by TractAir
Air Brakes by TractAir

Air Brakes and Speed.

Think about…
The speeds that your current tractor is capable of traveling.
Is your current equipment appropriate for the higher speeds that could be reached?
Remember a new trailer is likely to outlast 2-3 replacement tractors over its ‘front line use’ lifetime.  Higher-spec. trailer brakes may cost more, but they will cost less to run and be much cheaper (and safer and legal) in the long run.  A higher spec trailer may already have air brakes installed.  But what if air brakes were not part of the spec.
• Consider adding air brakes to new tractor and trailed equipment that does not have air brakes as part of its specifications, or upgrade existing hydraulic trailer brakes and supplement them with load sensing and fail safe air brakes systems.
• When Purchasing 50 km/h tractors, have your current trailed equipment fleet inspected and tested at the point of tractor installation for air brake systems.
• Ask your supplier to advise on any necessary repairs or changes to tractor and trailed equipment specification required to prevent possible problems and comply with legislation.  In Europe, governments are talking about making a compulsory law that means Agricultural Road going vehicles will have to be fitted with Air Brakes.
• Make sure, as an operator, that you understand the implications of “over speeding” and its effects on tractor and trailed equipment braking systems, whether it is Air Brakes or Hydraulic brakes.
• Ensure you have a thorough maintenance plan for your trailed equipment fleet as this is often overlooked.  Components within trailed equipment braking systems may be wearing faster than you think when used at higher speeds with newer tractors. Prevention is better than cure!

Remember : A good Air Brake System is not only safer but can save you money in the long run.

Five-wheel beet chaser arrives in the UK

Most farmers are accustomed to their machines being fitted with an even numbers of wheels – usually four. But check out the five-wheel Vervaet Hydro Trike XL sugar beet chaser wagon.
Dutch firm Vervaet produced the first Hydro Trike in 1990 for slurry handling contractors. It came with a 19,000-litre tank and could also be fitted with a self-propelled muckspreader.
Brought in by Attleborough-based Vervaet importer J Riley Agri, the five-wheel XL version has an extra extending axle that allows the machine’s weight to be evenly spread over a wide area to minimise soil damage. In fact, no two wheels run in the same place.
On the road the centre set of wheels is raised, giving the machine a road speed of 40kph.
Power comes from DAF Paccar engine which produces 465hp at just 1,400rpm. When maximum power is not required, the machine operates at just 1,250rpm, reducing fuel usage.
Famers Weekly quoted : “In a very wet season like last year the harvesters could travel but the trailers were the problem. With the 625 and trike we will have a combination which should go at any time without making a mess.”
As TractAir strive to be at the forefront of the latest technology and have Air Braking Systems to match, we are offering a custom kit to fit the new technology and the trailers that it pulls.
Our custom fit Air Brake Systems and Retro Fit Air Brakes for Trailers will be available via our normal sales channels. Please see our Contact Page for details.

Spring is here and its time for those important checks.

As well as me reminding all you good people that spring is here and your machinery is about to get tested to its limits. Let me also remind you check those compressor belts. Do you have a spare (just in case)?

Some Government Guide lines on H&S for machinery.

Farming can be a hazardous occupation with its regular use of various types of vehicles, machinery and equipment. Many health and safety issues on a farm arise from vehicles and machinery, so it’s important that you know how to prevent potential problems.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 established the principle that those who create risk are best placed to manage it. The Act led to the formation of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The HSE works to help prevent injury, ill health and death to those at work, including employers, employees, self employed, contractors, suppliers and manufacturers.
This legislation states that if you employ workers on your farm you must ensure their safety. You must maintain safe work areas, practices and work systems, provide appropriate training and supervision, and not place the health and safety of any third party at risk. Your employees must also take reasonable care to avoid injury and not put the health and safety of any third party at risk.
This guide outlines the main health and safety information for the most common vehicles, machinery and equipment on the farm. It explains how the legislation applies to you, how to avoid any health and safety risks and outlines the hazards of using machinery.
The importance of purchasing CE marked vehicles
All farming vehicles, machinery and equipment must be safe to use, pose no hazard to your health and be appropriate for their specific jobs.
The Health and Safety at Work legislation requires that any new machine, vehicle or farming or forestry equipment you buy must be ‘CE’ marked. This mark means that each has been built to minimum legal safety requirements. They should also have a certificate of conformity, a workshop manual and any information on noise levels. If the noise levels are above acceptable legal levels, you should provide additional protection for those who will be using the machines.
Buying second-hand machines, vehicles or equipment
If you are planning to buy second-hand machines, you should check that:
• tractors and machinery comply with the requirements within the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) – if they don’t, you must bring them up to the required standard before you use them
• the operator’s manual is provided or that suitable information can be obtained
• any missing or damaged safety guards can be replaced or repaired before using the machine
When you buy or hire machines, the law requires the supplier to provide necessary safeguards.
Download a guide to the PUWER 1998 from the HSE website (PDF, 158KB).
Download the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills’ Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992 (As Amended) guidance from the Agricultural Document Library website (PDF, 79K).
Maintaining farm vehicles and machinery
Whether you are self employed or employ people on your farm, you must make sure that all your equipment is properly repaired and in working order. You need to perform regular maintenance checks on all machinery – including brakes, hydraulic hoses and power take-off guards.
You can find useful equipment maintenance checklists on the British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association (BAGMA) website.
Download vehicle health and trailed appliances checks checklists from the Department for Transport website (PDF, 795KB).
You should also be sure that anyone using farm equipment can operate it safely. They need to provide training and instruction for every piece of equipment they use.
Read more in the guide on agricultural skills, learning and training.
Avoiding accidents and health risks
There are a number of health risks when working with farming vehicles and machinery. Among these are:
• slips and falls – eg caused by wearing improper footwear or working on slippery surfaces
• fractured bones – eg caused by falls or overturned vehicles
• amputations – eg caused by wearing improper or inappropriate clothing near machinery or failing to use safety equipment
• head injuries – eg caused by overturned vehicles or faulty vehicle brakes
• crushing injuries – eg caused by faulty brakes, vehicles that are not in proper gear, or overturning vehicles
• contact with overhead electrical power lines – eg caused by working too close to power lines
• fatal injuries
Download the five steps to risk assessment from the HSE website (PDF, 78KB)
You can avoid accidents and health risks by strictly following good practices. These are not compulsory, but you may find them helpful in considering them in all of your farming activities:
• make sure that all machinery is properly maintained and repaired
• wear suitable clothing and footwear, namely safety boots
• read and understand the instruction manual of any machinery you are going to use
• tie back long hair
• remove any jewellery that can be caught in machinery
• wear a seat belt – this is a legal requirement
• make sure the machine’s handbrake is applied
• use ‘safe stop’ when necessary – ie handbrake is on, controls are on neutral, engine is stopped, key is removed
• keep machinery clean and mud-free
• remove loose tools and other pieces of equipment from inside cabs
• check for any bystanders and children when manoeuvring or operating machinery
• do not work near low-hanging power lines
• be familiar with the ground you’re working on
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires that you:
• ensure – as far as reasonably possible – the health, safety and welfare of your employees and any others who may be affected by what your employees do
• carry out a risk assessment if you are an employer
• establish a carefully prepared action plan on health and safety that’s specific to your farm
• organise your workers through communication, co-operation, competence and control
• plan and set standards to be sure that your health and safety practices work
• check how you’re doing through regular inspections and monitoring, and by acting on any problems should they occur

Download information about the safe use of rotary flail hedge cutters from the HSE website (PDF, 79K)
Dangerous parts of tractors and other equipment
Farming vehicles, equipment and machinery can be hazardous if proper use and maintenance practices aren’t followed.
For example, if you are operating a tractor, you need to:
• make sure that the power take-off (PTO) shaft guards are made to a recognised standard – such as BS EN ISO 5674 – and of the correct size and length when closed and when extended
• be sure that the guards are of a non-rotating type, and have a restraining device – such as securing chains that are properly in place and secured
• be certain that guards are cleaned and lubricated at regular intervals and ensure that they are capable of providing proper protection
• ensure that the PTO is supported when not connected – it should not be rested on the drawbar or suspended by the restraining device
• not use adaptors to allow a spline 1,000 rotations per minute (rpm) shaft to drive a six-spline 540rpm shaft
Download a guide on PTOs and PTO drive shafts from the HSE website (PDF, 181KB).
When dealing with other dangerous machine parts, you need to:
• be sure that safeguards are strong enough and securely attached to the machine
• make sure that they are self-locking or need a tool to open them
• ensure that they are made of the correct materials – eg no plastic because it can be easily damaged
• check and maintain them on a regular basis

Pure Genius.

Now this is what the web is about. Can you deny that Dean Kamens Robotic arm is just beyond excellent. Many people are deprived of movement or the ability to live normal healthy lives. Many of us take for granted the fact that we have the ability to lead a normal life with out needing support from others. Some people need so much support, usually coming from loved ones who give there time and lives taking care of another relative. The new robotic limbs not only create indipendance for the person recieving the limb but gives back the freedom to the carer. One limb cares for two people (or more in some cases).
So my question is; How long will it be before any limb can be replaced by a fully functional replica of the human limbs.
Please watch this piece of technology in action.

Pencil Pusher.

In the US alone businesses use about 21 million tons (19 million metric tons) of paper every year — 175 pounds of paper for each American, according to the Clean Air Council. If we add on Britain then that is an astronomical amount of paper. This has led to office recycling programs, “please think before you print” e-mail signatures and printers that offer double-sided printing. Now a trio of Chinese inventors hopes to add another device to the cubicle environment: the P&P Office Waste Paper Processor, which turns paper destined for recycling into pencils. The machine, looking a bit like a three-hole punch crossed with an electric pencil sharpener, was a finalist in the 2010 Lite-On Awards, an international competition that seeks to stimulate and nurture innovation.

Here’s how the pencil-making gadget works: You insert wastepaper into a feed slot. The machine draws the paper in, rolls and compresses it, and then inserts a piece of lead from a storage chamber located in the top of the device. A small amount of glue is added before — voilà — a pencil slides out from a hole on the side. It’s not clear how many pieces of paper form a single pencil, but you figure the average office worker could generate a decent supply of pencils in a month.

And that seems to be the biggest drawback to the pencil-producing gadget. How many No. 2 pencils can an office really use, given that most workers take notes on their tablet PCs or laptops? And how much glue and lead core do you need to buy to keep up with the overflowing paper recycle bin? Too much, we would suspect, which is why you may never see this gadget in your office supplies catalog.

Mount Everest Is The Tallest Mountain in the World. (or is it?)

flase_fact_2

Mount Everest is one whopping big mountain, but is it the tallest in the world? In fact it is not. A mountain is highest in regard to how far it soars above sea level. But technically it is tallest from base to summit. And Mauna Kea kills it at being the tallest.

Here’s the deets: Above sea level, Mauna Kea (in Hawaii) is only 13,799 feet (4,206 meters). But when you count the crazy enormous portion of it that’s underwater, it’s 33,465 feet tall (10,200 meters). Everest, that snobby little upstart, is only 29,029 feet (8,848 meters) above sea level, with none of it below sea level.

But the shame doesn’t end there. Mount Kilimanjaro hasn’t taken the stand yet. Kilimanjaro is 19,340 feet (5,895 meters) top to bottom. So it’s not as tall as Everest – but Everest is surrounded by the rest of its friends, the Himalayas, all of which are collectively growing by a quarter of an inch per year and pushing Everest’s summit higher. Kilimanjaro, on the other hand, is solitary, rising out from the relative flatness of Tanzania all on its dramatically striking own.
