Heavy Duty Spray Rigs

Kador designed water spray rigs, in sizes from 30KL, are available to fit a range of OEM trucks, or as trailer versions to tow behind a tractor.

Extensive design development and experience gained over many years provides a tank which can fill fast, has high corrosion resistance, low CoG, and with heavy duty mechanical, hydraulic and electrical components.

Kador truck mounted tanks can be fully raised to assist truck maintenance, and a range of standard options enables users to customize the rig to meet their own specific requirements for lighting, access, water cannons, foam fire systems and many other features.

The dynamic stability of Kador's water tanks on Cat777, 785 and 789 model trucks has been verified through on-site testing.

Kador's water tanks can be fitted with the Enviro-spray™ water control system to optimise water usage on mine roads. Conventional water spray control systems have a fixed (or manually operated step variable) water control system which can result in over-watering of mine haul roads when the water truck is travelling slowly or stopped.

Over-watering has long been identified as the cause of many high-potential safety incidents, as recently highlighted by the Qld Mines Inspectorate. The Enviro-spray™ system prevents over-watering and also enables substantial water savings for mine operators.

The following typical general arrangement drawings show the range of nominal water tank sizes available:

Larger water tankers, designed to tow behind Cat tractors are also available, for example:
