The demand for diaphragm wall equipment suitable to urban areas and the stringent requirement of verticality make the hydromill Cougar a good and easy option to meet the customer’s needs.
The Hose Wheels Design (HWD) is positioned below the cathead so that it can easily follow the hydromill movements with a tensioning and rewinding automatic system. It arises from the need to move simultaneously the hydraulic and bentonite mud circulation hoses to the cutting unit.
The SC-120 Cougar is the high performance HWD series, which excavates more than 60 m of depth with approx. 900 HP ensuring a great level of production rates.
The SC-120, complying with CE requests of EN16228 upon request, has been conceived to offer the best possible safety solutions. The equipment presents a new safe anti-falling system, handrails and ladders, lashing points, remote control boards and reduced speed mode in order to carry out the main assembly/disassembly operations and maintenance procedures in safe conditions.
The DMS (Drilling Mate System), developed by Soilmec and installed on all the products of the range, allows the real-time monitoring of all the operating parameters and of the production process, including a dual-axis positioning sensor (triple-axis version as optional) that controls the geometry of the panel with 2D and 3D graphics print out.
