Rotar ‘ROQ’ fully integrated hydraulic adapter now OilQuick ‘Clean System’ readyPublished 27/9 at 15:41
Rotar now offers its attachments as standard and factory fitted with fully integrated hydraulic ROQ adapters built with original OilQuick parts. As an OilQuick Clean System partner, Rotar has placed great emphasis on compatibility with original OilQuick couplers and the associated Clean System partner suitability.
The original OilQuick components ensure that the user receives the latest development stage from OilQuick, ensuring full compatibility and the highest possible operational safety, especially in connection with the essential safety systems such as the OilQuick locking control and the OilQuick drop protection. The Rotar ROQ adapter has been fully integrated into the attachment design by Rotar engineers with the support of OilQuick Germany. The hydraulic connections and hoses are included in the design. The rotator head section of these attachments has been completely redesigned and optimised for the integration of the adapter, meaning that the adapter can be placed directly on the slewing ring without requiring further assembly.
This very compact combination of attachment and adapter offers considerable advantages for the user. Depending on the size of the attachment, it can be up to 200mm shorter and 200kg lighter. This makes a considerable difference due to the more favourable centre of gravity of the attachment. This benefit is especially noticeable on high reach applications, as this design is lighter and closer to the excavator arm's suspension point than conventional adapters. Rotar dealers and customers can order the attachments complete and ready for use from the factory, with additional work and time to bolt on the adapter plate and install the hose connections being eliminated, saving time and service costs.
Due to the fully integrated hydraulic hoses, damage during hard demolition work is almost impossible. This increases operational safety and thus reduces operating costs and saves downtime on job sites as well. Due to the full integration of the adapter, a service inspection cover is implemented. This allows easy access to all hydraulic components in the upper head section of the attachment, with no time consuming unscrewing of the adapter being required. In addition, all attachment parts used, such as hoses and screw connections and the original OilQuick hydraulic couplings, are standardised and documented in the spare parts manuals. This makes it very easy and quick to identify a component and replace it if necessary. All these measures aim to reduce maintenance and operating costs, increase ease of maintenance and provide maximum safety.
The Rotar ROQ fully integrated hydraulic adapters are currently available as ROQ 60 / ROQ 70 / ROQ 70-55 / ROQ 80 and ROQ 90 for the Rotar series ‘RCC’ two cylinder concrete cutter, ‘RDC’ demolition combi shear, ‘RDP’ demolition pulveriser and ‘RG’ demolition and sorting grab as well as for the ‘RSS’ mobile scrap shear. Rotar also offers original fully integrated adapters for Steelwrist and Lehnhoff Variolock full hydraulic quick couplers. Other sizes and models are available on request.
