The hydromill module is constituted by a heavy steel frame on which two milling drums and a centrifugal mud pump are mounted. In order to correct the module verticality deviation, 12 independent mobile flaps are positioned on the module surface.
Furthermore, a simultaneous or independent tilting plate can be installed as optional for the best verticality correction, especially in case of leaned layers of rock. All Soilmec modules are set with a 2D or 3D sensor developed for the module positioning control, which is managed by the Hydromill DMS.
Soilmec has designed all its modules with a rotation system conceived for T-panel execution or for other module orientations. This specific feature gives the possibility to facilitate the job site operations, leading to a reduction in terms of cost and time.
The 40 t class module is suggested for medium-high depth projects. Its body length and weight guarantee a high verticality level and panel dimensions up to 3200x1800 mm. The high torque cutting unit (up to 153 kNm) can be installed.
The module rotation system is included as a standard.
