Duromac Announces First DISAB heavy-duty Vacloader Truck in Southeast Asia
Quester is described as an ‘evolutionary heavy-duty truck that provides a smarter solution’ in today’s challenging transportation world with fuel efficiency and durability. The combination of global technology and Japanese craftsmanship is said to give Quester the flexibility to suit a variety of applications and ease of superstructure installation, making it a suitable choice for Duromac.
The handover ceremony was held at Duromac headquarters in Puchong and witnessed by the senior management of Duromac, UD Trucks and TCIE. Both TCIE and Duromac had worked very closely on this project for almost a year to deliver the first DISAB heavy-duty Vacloader truck in Southeast Asia.
“We are honoured to be given this opportunity to work with Duromac in introducing the first heavy-duty Vacloader truck in Southeast Asia. The company’s trust in TCIE enabled us to go the extra mile and embark on this challenging project since last year. We are truly thankful to Duromac for its confidence and support to TCIE for the past 26 years,” said Say Teck Ming, Executive Director of TCIE.
Designed for industrial applications suitable for suctioning, discharging and transportation of solid or liquid materials, the DISAB Centurion LN20 mounts perfectly on the Quester CGE84R11MS. Its ‘extremely good suction features’ make it appropriate for industries involved in cement, lime, chemicals, plastics, foundries, steelworks, quarries, pulp and paper, shipyards and energy.
The DISAB Centurion LN20 is equipped with a separate diesel engine that makes it possible for the vacloader to operate independently of the truck. Offering ‘extremely good’ suction and blow features, the round tank design makes it suitable for handling wet, dry, oils, stones, rocks and many other materials. The LN20 is also said to possess great flexibility for different applications with multiple add-ons available. The tank comes with a choice of 10m³ or 12m³capacity, a robotic hose boom that extends to 15 metres and is operated using a handheld radio remote control for an optimised ergonomically experience for the operator.
“The vehicle is used to clean up spillages or empty tanks in a variety of industrial applications. It could suck up liquid, slurry or dry materials by vacuum at a pressure of 950 millibars and then blow them out again or empty contents by tipping,” said Premraj Das, Group Chief Operating Officer of Duromac.
TCIE has an extensive network of service centres and dealerships nationwide. Any purchase of UD trucks is supported by UD Extra Mile Support services that include UD Genuine Service and Parts, UD Driver Training, UD Telematics and UD Trust Service Agreements for customers.
