Thorite provides a lift to vehicle conversion specialist

Monday 1st February 2010

Thorite, the biggest distributor of pneumatic products and process systems and currently celebrating 50 years in the compressed air market, has recently designed and supplied an innovative control system for KC Mobility Solutions Ltd of Batley, West Yorkshire.

KC Mobility Solutions Ltd is a recognised market leader in special vehicle conversions for people with disabilities, with over 25 years experience and a successful track record for undertaking many projects using hydraulic and electrical actuators.

However, when faced with installing a compact and reliable refuse collection vehicle passenger lift, in a restricted space where the actuator would be constantly exposed to road spray, they turned to Thorite for assistance.

As Norgren's largest UK distributor of pneumatic automation products, Thorite were able to quickly design a cost-effective package to meet the customer's needs, utilising a variety of Norgren's compact cylinders and control valves.

The completed system features excellent speed control and provides a smooth movement that is easily controlled by the operators, enabling them to enter and leave the vehicle in complete safety.
