Remote radio operating system, and remote operating apparatus, mobile relay station and radio mobile working machine

The present invention relates to remote radio control technology, and a remote radio control system includes a radio movable working machine (1), a remote control apparatus (6A), and a movable repeater station (7). First bidirectional communication means (31, 71) having a high radio wave directionality and first automatic tracking means (32, 71A) are provided between the working machine (1) and the repeater station (7), and second bidirectional communication means (63, 76) having a high radio wave directionality, second automatic tracking means (63A, 76A), and emergency spread spectrum bidirectional communication means (64, 87) for enabling bidirectional communication between the remote control apparatus (6A) and the repeater station (7) when communication by the second bidirectional communication means (63, 76) is impossible are provided between the remote control apparatus (6A) and the repeater station (7). Consequently, even if communication between the working machine (1) and the movable repeater station (7) is disabled, each of the working machine (1) and the repeater station (7) is permitted to perform a minimum necessary operation, and any other person than those skilled in actual controlling operation of the working machine (1) can perform remote control easily.

Movable arm potential energy recovery method and apparatus of hydraulic excavator

The invention discloses a method for recovering potential energy of a movable arm of a hydraulic digging machine and a device thereof. The method comprises the following steps: firstly, the potential energy is stored through an energy accumulator in the retraction process of a hydraulic cylinder; and secondly the stored energy in the energy accumulator drives a generator to generate electricity, thereby realizing the recovery of the potential energy of the movable arm of the hydraulic digging machine. A mode for storing the potential energy is to convert the potential energy into pressure energy. The energy accumulator and the generator are connected through a proportioning valve so as to control the rotational speed of the generator. The method realizes high-efficiency recovery of the potential energy of the movable arm of the hydraulic digging machine; the principle of the method is to skillfully change the working time of hydraulic oil for power generation through the function of energy storage of the energy accumulator and provide effective buffering for recovering the potential energy; in addition, through the throttling control of the proportioning valve, the method reduces pressure fluctuation of the hydraulic oil in the power generation process, realizes the adjustment of the working rotational speed of the generator, improves the working efficiency of the generator and further improves the efficiency of energy recovery.

Mobile vacuum excavation process

A compact mobile vacuum boring, and excavation method comprising a device which will create a vacuum condition within a vacuum container and having a vacuum conduit to air convey a liquid and or solid particles into the vacuum container. The vacuum container air inlet & outlet conduit arrangement may also facilitate the separation of solids from the vacuumed air flow by producing a cyclone effect within the vacuum container. A circular cyclone effect is created within the vacuum container by the arrangement relationship between the inlet and outlet vacuum air conduits and baffles. As the air velocity slows, the solids precipitate out of the air and settle in the vacuum container. A housing with filters disposed within it is also adjacently mounted near the vacuum container in order to reduce the quantity of connecting conduits and facilitate a compact, efficient and clean interaction between the vacuum container and the filter housing. The vacuum container access door and the filter housing access door may be adjacently placed in near proximity to each other for user friendly access to empty and clean the vacuum container and filter house or a common door may access both. A compressible seal and conduit arrangement may be used as a quick disconnect between the vacuum producing means and the filter housing. A reversing valve arrangement may be used to back flow air through the filter. Sensors, data gathering, data logging and documentation of a service event may be included. The above systems may be mounted on a variety of mobile platforms.

Method and apparatus for pumping with a dredge

A system usable for dredging may include a suction bypass system for automatically maintaining a sufficiently high, liquid flow velocity. Preferably, a flow sensor monitors flow velocity and when the monitor flow decreases to an extent that plugging may occur, a liquid bypass valve is opened and an intake line valve is closed until the flow velocity increases whereupon the valves are returned to their original positions. An automatic level cut removes a relatively constant layer of material from a contoured bottom. The illustrated automatic level cut process comprises adjusting the force with which the suction head engages the bottom, moving the suction head in a direction opposite to the direction of the swing of the boom to keep the suction head pointing straight ahead, and maintaining the suction head to stay substantially level with the bottom even though the angle of the boom increases to the surface of the water body. A leveling device comprising a parallelogram linkage may be used to maintain the suction head substantially level with the bottom. A predetermined amount of load force may be applied by the head against the bottom. Herein, a winch and cable and the controller are operated to lift some of the head weight until the desired predetermined head force is applied to the bottom. A walking system moves the pipe intake for taking a sideways cut without the use of a spud pole, anchors and anchor lines. Large blade members or feet travels in an endless path with the feet entering the bottom while vertically disposed and remained disposed vertically while entering and leaving the bottom so as not to dig or stir the bottom that will cause large liquid turbidity. A low turbidity head cleaning system prevents the head from being plugged and debris or sticky material. Preferably, a rotatable cone-shaped head is provided with spaced rings and bars that define sized openings that limit the size of debris entering into the intake. A fixed comb removes material stuck on the rotating head. A shroud has an open bottom side thereby preventing bottom material from escaping and increasing with turbidity. A suction head articulation system keeps the head pointed in the forward direction of dredge advancement to create a smooth finish grade.
