Rite-Hite introduces loading dock sealing system
June 25, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
June 25, 2019 – Rite-Hite has developed the PitMaster V Dock Face Sealing System to seal open gaps on the loading dock face and pit floor in vertical leveler applications.
The company says the sealing system helps to save energy, improve pit cleanliness, and reduce infiltration of weather and contaminants.
When a trailer backs up to a dock, there is typically an unsealed space between the dock face and trailer, which can drive up energy costs, as well as increase the risk of cargo compromise due to weather and unwanted pests. With the two-step system of the PitMaster V, the open gaps are sealed with the PitPad and the leveler lip (SealWheel) has the ability to move and serve its purpose in virtually any vertical leveler application.
Interactive sealing components adjust automatically to trailer and leveler lip position.
The components are individually replaceable as needed. Designs are available for standard as well as drive-through situations.
