SCHEUERLE SPMT and KAMAG K24 in cold test

How heavy-load transporters prove themselves at extremely low temperatures

SCHEUERLE SPMT and KAMAG K24 achieved very good results in recent low temperature testing . The PPUs (PowerPack Units) with pre-heating unit and bogie unit were tested under extreme conditions.

Regardless whether it involves transport routes 1,080 km across the desert in Saudi Arabia or in the mountains at altitudes of 5000 metres as well as in Siberia at extremely low temperatures. In order to ensure that our customers can completely rely on TII Group vehicles even during extreme weather conditions, our vehicles are subjected to rigorous testing in extreme temperatures.

Icy temperatures were waiting or the two vehicles at Rail Tec Arsenal facility in Vienna as this is one of the few environmental simulation systems that can accommodate the size of our vehicles. In the process, they were cooled down to freezing temperatures in order to test various functions such as lifting, lowering, steering and driving. The starting capability of the diesel engines as well as the operability of the Power Booster PPUs came through the cold tests with flying colours.

"These are indeed extreme requirements for heavy-load transporters to meet but we have achieved our goals," reported Martin Weiss, a member of the SCHEUERLE Fahrzeugfabrik technical support team who was in charge of the tests. "The results speak for themselves. With the focus on along with the intimate knowledge of the needs of our customers, we took a very close look at the requirements to be sure of providing optimal results. A challenge for both man and vehicle that has been outstandingly mastered through teamwork, commitment and performance."

Customers benefit particularly from the out-of-the-ordinary assignments we are frequently involved in as well as the accumulated know-how and expertise of all the member companies in the TII Group. Find out more about our transporters and their capabilities by subscribing to our newsletter:
