Philippi-Hagenbuch Inc (PHIL) has introduced a 90-ton Rear Eject scrap steel haulage trailer (patent pending) for a greenfield steel mill in Mississippi.
The PHIL Rear Eject trailers provide a new technology in steel production, allowing steel mills to customize what goes into the charge bucket in a manner that results in higher-quality steel and shorter melt times, requiring less electric arc furnace energy.
The trailers minimize charge bucket damage through softer material discharge into the charge bucket. They are sized appropriately to charge bucket size to maximize productivity. Units encorporate PHIL's six-way fifthwheel hitch, allowing complete mobility of the trailer independent of the truck. Typical trailers weigh approximately 72,000 pounds, and can haul 90 tons, or 120 cubic yards of scrap steel.
These trailers, an extension of the PHIL Rear Eject product line, incorporate many of the same features. The trailer has a mechanical Autogate tailgate with no hydraulic cylinders, and trailers are designed for minimal maintenance: no rollers and no lubrication points.
