7 AGGREGATES MANAGER August 2014 Text INFO to 205-289-3782, or visit Radar obstacle detection Brigade Electronics offers a line of radar ob- stacle detection systems. All four models of the Backsense radar system divide a specified detection area into five zones and provide a visual and audible warning when objects enter the hazard area. The cab display includes five LEDs corresponding to each of the five dis- tance zones from the vehicle. A warning buzzer has an adjustable sound level of 65 to 90 dB. The manufacturer says the sensor is impervious to water, dust, and mud. The system controls the radar beam pattern, so the spread of the beam can be restricted to the desired width to minimize false alerts. Detection areas up to nearly 100 feet are available.

Using half as much fuel as similar rigs, the Atlas Copco FlexiROC T45 also comes with 50 percent fewer hoses and 70 percent fewer couplings for easier maintenance and reduced risk of leakage. 800-732-6762 As seen at Hillhead Tier 4 final loaders Case Construction Equipment offers Tier 4 final loader options with its 821F and 921F wheel loaders. Each is equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR)-only solution that treats emissions separately with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and does not require the engine to recirculate exhaust gas. Case says this optimizes combustion and machine performance, lowers engine temperatures, and eliminates maintenance and downtime associated with filter replacement and regeneration. The loaders sport a 6.7-liter Tier 4 final engine. The 821F and 921F loaders produce 212 and 241 net peak horsepower, respectively. The 821F features a bucket range from 3.2 to 4.5 cubic yards, while the 921F has a bucket range from 3.8 to 4.75 cubic yards. Case Construction Equipment | Reduces need for settling ponds McLanahan Corp. says its deep cone thickener helps producers do more with their existing resources by reducing or eliminating the need for settling ponds and other structures. They are meant to achieve the highest solids concentration possible through gravity separation. A full-time operator is not necessary. McLanahan Corp. | See it in action at
