CEA announces new Cesar functionality

The Construction Equipment Association’s (CEA) official Cesar Scheme, which uses

technologies developed by Datatag to prevent machinery theft, announced the development of a new Emissions Compliance Verification (ECV) functionality. This additional ‘bolt-on’ service is designed to allow quick verification of a

machine’s emissions category. It uses tamper-evident labels with individual alphanumeric codes that are linked to the equipment Cesar identity for system integrity. CEA Chief Executive, Rob Oliver, said, “With the introduction of Low Emission

Zones and ‘green’ construction sites, there is an urgent demand for the quick identification of the certified emission levels of machines brought on to sites. In developing ECV we have had some great input from HS2, the Energy Savings Trust and London boroughs.” Rob Oliver is pictured, centre, with Datatag MD Kevin Howells, left, and Charles

Stevenson, General Manager with JCB, with the first machine to have ECV marking. 01784 778310 BISAF promotes Particulator system

Equipment promoted on the Western Tydens stand included the Particulator, from BISAF Ltd, which is designed to significantly reduce the diesel particulate matter in engine exhaust fumes, especially on smaller machines such as mini excavators. The system comprises two components, the first being

the particulate filter that receives exhaust gases from the host machine via a flexible metal pipe, passing through a synthetic ceramic. The second is the control cabinet housing electronics that control filter regeneration, and a back pressure monitor. A sensor detects an

increase in back pressure as more particles are collected, and warning lights show when

regeneration is required to burn the deposits, which requires connection to an electrical supply. The operator presses a button to start the process and an integral heater generates the required high temperatures to cleanse the filter.

Latest Takeuchi minis on display

Takeuchi’s new TB235-2 is a version of the popular TB235 model that has been re-designed to meet the EU Stage V emissions regulations. The machine weighs in at 3,465kg and offers a maximum digging depth of 3,245mm. Also new is the TB250-2 which weighs 5,120kg. Visitors were able to inspect the battery-powered

TB220e mini, which is scheduled to be launched in 2020. It has a 25kWh battery that is claimed to provide a working time of eight hours and is said to deliver the same performance as Takeuchi’s diesel TB216 model in the 1.6-tonne class.

01706 657722 TCP highlights hydrogen

Another company extolling the benefits of eco-friendly products was Taylor Construction Plant (TCP), whose stand display comprised machines powered by hydrogen fuel cells and solar panels. MD Andrew Barker

explained that many of these products can be run off a multi-cylinder pack (MCP) of hydrogen bottles for long-term deployment under reasonable heavy loads. On display was the

Ecolite GH2 hydrogen DC power generator offering up to 1,000W output, in turn supplying an LGP (Light Green Power) 2500 unit to provide 5kW for powering electrical equipment in confined spaces without fumes or noise. On the TCP stand it was powering a variety of linkable lighting products. Monitoring the equipment was a CH2 cabinet to assess air quality,

noise and vibration levels, a service that more site managers are reported to be requesting. TCP is now offering Finnish-made MBerg lighting products that are designed

to withstand heavy usage and impacts, and are available in 110V and 48DC versions, the latter having an integral battery for emergency backup. Also new to the portfolio is the Italian Zallys range of battery-powered barrows.
