Electric vehicles for an environmentally friendly waste collection
Alke' waste collection vehicles are certainly a valid answer for those organizations that aim at eco-sustainability and at reducing air and noise pollution. In this period there is much talk of smart cities that can improve the quality of urban life through activities that mainly involve the fields of mobility, the environment and energy efficiency. This is why more and more urban realities are being activated in the implementation of separate waste collection systems also with the help of low environmental impact vehicles.
|Loading capacity [liters]||2.800 - 2.200 - 1.700|
|Loading capacity [kg]||650|
Waste body: this electric vehicle has a waste collection body of three different sizes: 2.8 m3, 2.2 m3 e 1.7 m3 (for COMBI versions) in a corrosion-resistant aluminum with a tipping angle of 90° that allows the waste to be dumped directly into the auto-compacting machines.
|Side door height [cm]||130|
|Side door on both sides||Yes|
Side door: thanks to the side door, loading baskets bags and garbage bags is much easier.
|Possibility to mount the bin lift:||Yes|
|Bin capacity [liters]||120 - 240 -360|
Optional bin lift: it is possible to equip the Alkè waste collection vehicle with a bin lifting system for containers of 120, 240 or 360 liters.
Alke' electric waste collection vehicles: Main Characteristics
|AC electric motor||
AC motors provide very high performance while saving energy, therefore lower consumptions.
Energy recovery during the braking ensures high safety standards and perfect descent maneuverability, as well as a lowering consumptions.
|Maximum Autonomy: 150 km||
The maximum range is indicative and evaluated over flat path with use in optimal conditions, ECO mode with proper style and energy saver guide, max speed of 30 km/h, non continuous use (batteries discharge in 5 hours).
|Cost for a full charge: 1.50 - 2.00 euro||
|Length: 385 cm||
|Width: 138 cm||
The small width allows to operate in restricted area.
The waste collection body is available also in the COMBI version (1.7 m3) in combination with the toolbox or the pressure washer. Here more details su Toolbox and waste collection body and here all the information on Pressure washer and waste collection body
|Max negotiable slope: 35%||
ATX models, in their category, are probably the only electric vehicles able to maintain high performance even in presence of slopes and difficult land-types.
Waste collection body with bin lift system for a complete configuration
The vehicle is equipped with a dropping control system using automatic valves and double effect hydraulic cylinders and support feet with stabilization functions for tipping operations.
Tipping operations can be controlled on board or with a cable command from the outside.
It is possible to equip the Alkè waste collection vehicle with a bin lift system for containers of 120, 240 or 360 liters, also the bin lifting system works through an electro-hydraulic mechanism and is equipped, moreover, with a kinematism that keeps the bin always in a vertical position, emptying it automatically only when it reaches the loading mouth. A waste collection body tarp can be installed as an option.
The average amortization time of an ecological waste collection vehicle is about three years, due to the absence of fossil fuels. The waste collection body is also in the COMBI version (da 1.7 m3) in combination with the toolbox or the pressure washer.
- advanced systems of security and stabilization
- bin lift system
- operations can be controlled on board
- available with COMBI version with toolbox and pressure washer
|Energy recovery during the braking||Yes|
|Zero Emission Vehicle:||Yes|
Regeneration braking: this vehicle has the regenerative brake. For waste collection vehicles, energy recovery is extremely important for stop-and-go movements and increases the range up to 30%. For this reason, these vehicles are chosen by the municipalities.
|Dumping height [mm]||1450|
|Suitable to unload into the compactor:||Yes|
Ideal for campings and municipalities: thanks to their quiet, such vehicles are used, very often, in railways stations, parks and hospitals to load the garbage and bring it to the compactor.
|Height raised body [mm]||3650|
|Tipping angle [degrees]||90|
Cab controls: the waste collection body can be controlled directly on board.
The recommended model for this configuration
The ATX for waste collection is an electric vehicle used where it is necessary to collect waste in a continuous and easy way, without creating noise (zero noise) or polluting (electric motor). The model recommended by Alke' for the configuration with waste collection body is the ATX 340E/ED/H for the usual use but it is also compatible with the ATX 330E/ED/H model. You can check the technical characteristics of the waste collection electric vehicle.
