Air Springs for Agriculture Applications
Oria air springs are also used in the agricultural sector. As air springs’ suppliers, we are able to manufacture rubber air bellows in different type of applications:
Air springs for truck suspension
The air springs are used for the truck suspension to provide a smooth constant ride quality. Its isolation capacity keeps the vehicle occupant comfortable and well isolated from road noise, bumps and vibrations.
The rubber airsprings won’t succumb to harsh farming environments, from pervasive dirt and dust, to prolonged moisture.
Whit this reliability, the compactness feature, durability and no maintenance necessity, it makes the ideal solution for the tractor isolation technology system.
Pneumatic air springs for feed mixer wagon
In agriculture, the feed mixer wagon or food mixer wagon is used for feeding the animals in the farm. Our pneumatic air springs are also supplied in this field. The air bellows are placed as part of the wagon. Their main objective consists of absorbing the vibrations caused by the weight of this part of the wagon.
Consequently, the metallic parts of the machine are protected and up to 99% of the vibrations can be absorbed due to the capacity of rubber pneumatic airsprings.
The convoluted rubber isolator has the advantage of the compactness over the diapress. The height required for installation on the machine is smaller, without losing isolation capacity and with a wide variety of end closure options.
In the following drawing, we may have a brief idea of the way in which the torpresses are placed in a feed mixer wagon.
Air actuator for soil fumigation machinery
Apart from the feed mixer’s wagon, the air actuator has another interesting functionality in the farming sector. As explained in other type of applications, it can also work as a pneumatic cylinder, in this case, applied to machines that are used as fumigation equipment for farming and agriculture.
Soil fumigation trucks or machines, need to be stable and on balance while they are working. Since land surfaces are often uneven and soil density can vary frequently in the same field, an air spring is an ideal alternative technology. Due to the volume and weight of the components, a security device is required during the fumigation process in order to prevent this vehicle suffer damages, as well as injuring operators or animals that might be around.
In order to have a clear understanding of the rubber air actuator, is important to have a look at the following pictures, so as to see the main function that ORIA air bellows have to give solution to agriculture fumigation equipment requirements.
The fumigation truck/machine needs to be in balance. Therefore, we are using the ORIA air actuators, located as we can see in the following pictures:
In the following images we can observe more examples of vehicles used in the agriculture field that use bellow pneumatic isolators.
ORIA air bellows can also be located in other machines used for farming.
ORIA is an air spring company that gives solutions to many different type cases in farming industry, as we have mentioned above in some of the real cases where ORIA has been working, nevertheless, we have to consider that there might be many different kinds of machines or feed mixer wagons in which our air bellow can be located differently. In addition, the air spring’s dimensions may vary depending on the machine type, weight, volume, atmosphere, etc.
