The balancer is designed to keep the exhaust extraction hose clear of the ground, thus minimizing the risk of damage to the hose and surroundings.
The balancer-450 series enables easy operation of the vehicle exhaust system. With the use of a powerful spring the balancer holds and lifts the hose of the system. The balancer is designed to balance a load within 0-4,5 m (0-15 ft.) with a maximum angle of 30° from the plumb line. The balancer is equipped with a spring tension lock which holds the wire in extended position. The locking function can easily be turned on or off depending on area of use.
The BRC-450/13-16-HB is a unique balancer integrated with a hydraulic brake, ensuring a soft close retraction until the balancer is completely retracted. This facilitates a safe retraction of the hose after disconnection without the risk of a hose flying back. The approximate retraction speed is 6 m/min. (20 ft/min) The BRC-450/13-1-HB is ideal in conjunction with the crab return system.
