Midi Catwalk System

Midi Catwalk System

The major benefit of Vortex is that we are an engineering company so if a customer wants a particular layout we can easily comply, and that is how the Midi Catwalk System came about.

The benefit of this system is that you only have to handle the car once, in a high throughput yard these systems can be fitted in whatever multiple is required to process the number of vehicles to needed each day. The vehicle drain system begins with the gas tank, simple raise the tool head and make a seal against the gas tank, the press the punch button asses the quality of the gas and switch on either the clean or dirty gas pump, all controlled from the tool head. Now get the oils draining, the rubber funnels are raised up the the sump and the plug removed using the supplied tools, the transmission pan can then be punched and drained, the pump switched on and the oils are sent directly to the storage tank. The coolant spike is inserted in to the bottom radiator hose and the coolant sucked out. Next the front catwalk is easily pulled in to place and the hood can be accessed. The fluids are sucked out by hoses connected to the pumps down below, all the controls for the pumps are mounted with the hoses. Ancillary tasks such as removing catalytic converters, batteries, mercury switches and AC refrigerant can all be added in to the sequence. 

  • The Vortex Midi Catwalk System allows you to drain the vehicle from underneath as well as under the hood at the same time and with only one fork lift movement
  • The low footprint saves space.
  • Our pump system is integrated into the system for fast removal of brake and power assisted steering fluids, Coolant and washer fluid. We provide a dedicated shelf for AC recovery equipment.
  • Under the vehicle we have the new design fuel tool, Oil drainer arms and coolant spike with the option of an additional differential oil drainer arm at the rear.
