New relief valve will help reduce load damage

B&B Attachments four-stage pressure relief valve reduces load damage by ensuring easy and fast clamping pressure selection. Able to be used on any clamping attachment, the electronically controlled pressure relief valve enables a clamp attachment to be used at four different clamping pressure levels thereby eliminating damage caused to loads sensitive to clamping forces such as paper rolls, boxes, cartons and white goods handling.

Supported by B&B Attachments 25 year's extensive knowledge, experience and renowned after sales service, the company can either instruct customers on the correct clamping pressures for their various loads or alternatively preset pressures according to product recommendations. The system can also be supplied with a light stack system, which clearly shows everyone in the vicinity of the truck, which operating pressure is selected. This is particularly important to those monitoring the operation of the clamps as it clearly displays whether the operator is using the pressure relief valve correctly.

Red, amber, green and blue lights indicate which pressure setting has been selected, thereby ensuring safe and efficient handling. The pressure settings are easy to adjust manually by moving the user-friendly cab mounted control unit. The valve's rugged design, small size, wide flow and pressure ranges make it suitable for a wide range of applications.

The valve is mounted into the auxiliary hydraulic lines between the lift truck and the attachment, with many mounting configurations possible. It enables easy clamping force adjustments with varying load weight and unit sizes and can be set to revert to the lowest pressure setting on power down and clamp opening.

B&B Attachments is certain that its new four-stage pressure relief value will become indispensable to warehouse operators dealing with paper roll, carton, box and white goods handling throughout the UK and Ireland. The system is the latest innovation in wide range of innovations currently provided by B&B to enhance the use of forklift trucks.

Established for nearly 25 years, B&B Attachments is the UK's leading independent supplier of forklift truck attachments and masts. From its sites in Hungerford, West Berkshire and Cramlington, Northumberland the company services a client base that includes OEMs, forklift truck dealerships and end users.
