December - 2019 CRS Unveils Ezzelid System

To coincide with the 2020 release of the Rotainer ®Eurospec MH range of container rotators CRS is also pleased to highlight the release of our all new, Patent Pending Ezzelid™ Container Lid Opening System.

Rigorous workshop testing has proved this new system is ready to revolutionise the container rotation industry where fully sealed and locked container lids are required with automatic opening.

For the last decade the industry has persisted with the 'Hang Over' of antiquated lid removal systems originally designed over 30 years ago for contanier tippler applications.  These systems  involved special lifting frames on container rotators, various lid locking devices, complexed hydraulics and electrical functions, all now redundant.

A re-think by the innovative team at CRS highlighted a simple, cost effective solution to enhance reliability, cycle times, reduced downtime and maintenance. 

The Rotainer® Eurospec MH Range does not required such systems therefore is more economical to produce, being 'softer' dynamically it further justifies less complexed container designs therefore reducing the total capital outlay.

We now offer 32T and 38T container rotators that cater from 1450mm Half Heights right through to 2900mm Bulkers, with or without automated lid lifting.

Transition from normal container handling to container rotation in seconds.

Being a 'stand alone' system, powered by a small Diesel Engine with remote control negates the complexity of interfacing with the hydraulics and electrics of sophisticated, late model Reach Stackers -  a maintenance plus!

Utilising CRS's single beam technology with our Patented drive system makes this the simplest drive system on the market.

Our 180 degree rotation system, based on F.E.L (Front End Loader Technology) whereby, the load is always discharged away from the operators cabin ensuring no product ever comes in contact with the operators environment, making  our system, the safest in the World, furthermore, by removing the vortex flow of the surrounding air caused by 360 degree rotation dramatically reduces dust and associated pollution.

February 2018 - CRS Rotorcon® High Cube Containers Hit With the Opposition

at Riga Ports

Designing a fully rotatable 2900mm high container is no easy feat.

At the onset of the development of our Container Rotation Systems, CRS with it engineers designed a new concept in open top containers.

From the ground up we developed a specific range of open top containers exclusively suited for the harsh environments involved with container rotators.

Our 'Rib' system is unique! It has taken may years with numerous objections to our patents by our close competitors however, CRS is please to announce that on the 22 March 2018, the Standard Patent for our Rotorcon® container was granted.

As the picture below from 'Ram In the News' clearly depicts, the inferior copies of the Rotorcon® container recently commissioned at Riga Universal Ports are already showing signs of degradation due to the poor interface with the container rotator.
