At CAS, we have created a new system by which long tubes can be fi lled with sand creating a continuous barrier. The tubes are fi lled on site using a single piece of equipment at rates equivalent to 120 sand bags per minute. These tubes have complete contact with the ground and require no advance ground preparation
The Flood Fighting Barrier
At CAS, we have created a new system by which long tubes can be fi lled with sand creating a continuous barrier. The tubes are fi lled on site using a single piece of equipment at rates equivalent to 120 sand bags per minute. These tubes have complete contact with the ground and require no advance ground preparation.
The process uses a loader and the CAS Off-Road Environmental Series Track machine. The tube fabric is attached to the fi lling device and the machine begins laying the tube in one continuous length. Multiple runs are made laying a base tube and stacking more in a pyramid shape to whatever height is required. This process requires one equipment operator for the track machine, a loader operator, and a couple of helpers to load the cartridges and stage them for the machine.
Our technology has also been used successfully as a form of erosion control (see picture to the right). In addition this machine can perform a variety of jobs and apply a wide range of material including rock, sand, soil, mulch, gravel, and the list goes on.
Cas All-Terrain Slinger Benefits
1. Save money
Rather than expending costs on three or four pieces of equipment, factoring machinery purchase costs, maintenance costs, training costs, fuel and labour hire, the same expenses will only need to spend on one piece of machinery. This would be sure to result in strong costs savings, effectively allowing clients to leverage their profit on any job.
2. Save time
The innovative machinery designs mean that often 1 or 2 processes are completely removed from the project. The projects can thus be completed more efficiently and economically, clearing the way for more work in the pipeline.
3. Create a competitive edge
The time and cost benefits of using the CAS range can be automatically passed onto clients at proposal stage, giving your business a strong competitive edge during the tendering/ sales process.
4. Increase adherence to safety regulations
The CAS range is built with a strength and technology that increases the safety of the machine. The reduced number of machinery required also reduces the risk of hazards occurring.
