The Ratchet Safety Assembly is selected on new tilter orders more often than any other option. A sudden hose or bladder rupture on a tilter can cause an elevated gaylord to come rushing down uncontrolled which could potentially harm an operator. The Ensign Ratchet Safety Assembly is a critical safety option designed to reliably ensure operators are protected from an uncontrolled descension of a gaylord in the event of a catastrophic hose or bladder rupture.
This option can be installed on both the Premier and Heavy-Duty Container Tilter models; it features a pneumatic spring-forward cylinder that immediately and automatically engages continuously during the entire tilt-up cycle. The pawl on the end of the spring-forward cylinder catches a stationary ratchet which mechanically prevents the tilt table from rushing down uncontrolled in the event of a sudden hose or bladder break.
