What Is a Container Spreader?
A container spreader is a type of device that is used to lift and transport containers. The spreader is a solid steel structure which is placed between the container and the lifting machine. It can be operated either manually or automatically. These spreaders are used on lift trucks, gantry cranes, straddle carriers and reach stackers. They are designed to handle ISO certified containers and are available in various configurations.
A typical container spreader is designed to handle 20 or 40 foot containers. However, there are also spreaders that are capable of handling 45 feet. Some of these spreaders are telescopic and others are fixed. There are also spreaders with adjustable arms that are capable of lifting both 20 and 40 foot containers.
Usually, these spreaders are used on tower mounted harbor cranes that can handle up to forty tons of weight. For the most part, these spreaders are equipped with flippers that help to improve the productivity of the spreader. In addition, they can be mounted on forklift trucks. Additionally, there are some spreaders that are equipped with rotation and gravity point adjustment.
Container spreaders are manufactured by several companies. One of the major manufacturers is OUCO, which is based in China. This company offers a variety of container spreaders that are suitable for different port terminals. Depending on the needs of the port, the spreader can be configured with hydraulic activated flippers, adjustable arms, rotation, and gravity point adjustment.
To ensure a smooth and safe operation, the spreader comes with locking mechanisms at each corner. This allows the crane driver to perform maneuvers without risking the spreader. Each of these locking mechanisms has a visual indicator that alerts the operator if the mechanism is not properly secured.
Other features include an automatic unloading function, a tipping mechanism, and a telescopic mechanism that increases work efficiency by 70 percent. Another feature is that the container spreader can quickly switch connections between different spreaders.
