Product: STC 32 / 1 – 10 / 24
Kässbohrer Fahrzeugwerke GmbH is one of the leading manufacturer of  ADR (The European Agreement for Carriage of Dangerous Goods) certificated tanks and silos with an outstanding product range in the sector.
In this particular case, our Kässbohrer customer requested a chemical tanker, suitable for the transportation of L4BH class liquids and for intermodal transportation in Ro-Ro ships.

Furthermore, to minimize the operational risk, it was requested that the tanker should be equipped with the following electronic systems: Automatic brake wear indicator system (PAD System), tire pressure monitoring system (IVTM System), telematics system and automatic parking censor.

The engineering challenge was to incorporate all the required electronic system into the tanker upper structure and chassis in compliance with ADR regulation. All the necessary cabling layered inside a box, along the tank upper structure to avoid exposure to any chemical material during the loading and unloading operation. Furthermore the existing electric circuit re-configured to supply power simultaneously to the 4 electronic systems.

To enable the driver control the systems effectively, Kässbohrer involved its business partners, Wabco and BPW  in the design process. By providing the sensors for PAD System from BPW and necessary cabling through Wabco,  the control board for both systems have been integrated into the Wabco’s Smartboard – for the first time in the industry.
