What are hydraulic tyre killer parts?

  • They have spikes/tooth which raise hydraulic instead of work mechanically.
  • They are also called electro-hydraulic tyre killer because they work with a hydraulic pump and an AC Motor.
  • Hydraulic Tyre Killers spikes/teeth raise help of a hydraulic piston. These tyre killers have separate hydraulic power units. The tyre killer and power unit are connected between each of them with hydraulic hoses.
  • Hydraulic power cabinet includes a PLC (Programmable Logic Relay) and it controlled all electronic equipment like thermic magnetic switch, contactor, relays, proximity sensor, direction control valves, drainage pump, loop detector etc.

How does a hydraulic tyre killer work?

  • Hydraulic tyre killers have a push button console which is placed to operate it.
  • Kind of Access Control Systems, card reader systems, remote control systems can be connected to operate the hydraulic tyre killers.
  • It is enough to push UP button once to raise it or DOWN button to lower it.
  • It has also Emergency Stop Button to avoid accidents.
  • Some of them has Emergency Raise Button to raise it fast for vehicle attacks.

How is a tyre killer installation?

  • It is installed in a reinforcement concrete pit.
  • After tyre killers are placed to its concrete pit, they are mounted to concrete with anchor bolts.
  • It should be not forgotten that PVC pipes for hydraulic hoses and proximity sensor which lies underground to the cabinet.
