The Crab Return System (CRS) fosters productivity by eliminating the need for an operator to physically retrieve the exhaust extraction hose and nozzle after they have been disconnected from a vehicle.
Moving cars and trucks in workshops, service facilities, governmental inspection environments and fire stations, emit hazardous fumes into the workshop air. The Crab Return System (CRS) can serve as a core component in the Plymovent exhaust removal system, as it helps extract these hazardous fumes from the source, and then safely returns the hose and nozzle back to the starting position automatically.
with sensor return trigger / auto return switch or remote control (with manual push button)
As the vehicle moves through the facility, the CRS enables the hose to move along with it. When the vehicle exits the facility, the nozzle can be detached manually by the user or automatically. The CRS returns the nozzle and hose to the original starting position by the operator via a remote control, or automatically via a sensor.
The Crab Return System improves both worker safety and efficiency. Because the nozzle is following the movements of the vehicle, the CRS minimizes the amount of hose hanging in a facility compared to traditional vehicle exhaust extraction systems. As a result, less obstructions improve the visibility of the operator.
CRS is delivered in an easy to install package and fits on existing Plymovent STRA, VSRX and MRP crab systems.
CRS is easy to install with a standard 120 volt 3A single phase connection. If you already have a STRA, VSRX and MRP system in use, the CRS can easily be installed on your existing system and will fit either the internal crab system (IC) or the external crab (EC) system.
The CRS is available in 3 sizes, covering systems from 20 ft. to 120 ft.
The unit contains a basic manual remote control start set. It is possible to add more remote controls to the system to create a maximum ease of use out of your Crab Return System.
The Crab Return System includes an emergency override allowing the operator to stop the system at any time.
