Innovatively engineered tools to solve complex problems

We have three purpose-built tools designed for three unique lifting scenarios, the common denominator across the tools is the use of the same lifting arrangement which is patent protected.

Mega-Pipe Lifter

The Mega-Pipe Lifter is our heavy lift tool for larger single or multiple industrial pipes. It lifts 44,000 lbs (20 tons) or more from a single support beam.

Multi-Pipe Lifter

The Multi-Pipe Lifter is our medium-lift tool. It can lift 22,000 lbs (10 tons) or more from a single support beam.

Uni-Pipe Lifter

The Uni-Pipe Lifter is our lightweight lifting tool for smaller individual pipes and has a 2,200 lbs (1 ton) lifting capacity.

our tools are a key component of our lifting solution

We work with your plant maintenance contractor to engineer a safe lifting solution, providing access to multiple work areas whilst the lines are in-service. Models of allowable stress profiles per line and plans for the number and positioning of lifting devices are developed. The result is a safe vertical displacement of single or multiple product lines for access to perform both inspections and maintenance.

Our systems achieve lifting heights up to 4 inches, sufficient to perform all inspections (NDE & visual) as well as maintenance or improvements. The initial break-away lift can be  done remotely using hydraulic rams to avoid personnel exposure in suspect contact areas. Mechanical lifting follows the initial breakaway. The lift is then vertically secured by a double lock-out system, which is then declared a temporarily supported load (and not a suspended load), therefore safe to work beneath.

The Lifting Study:

  • Determines the Weight to be lifted.

  • Develops a Stress Curve of each Pipeline.

  • Supplies a drawing for the Position of each Jack.

  • Specifies Movement-Control on lifted Equipment.

  • Declares the Structure Safe for lifting.

Lift an Entire Rack in Unison

 

The Jacks are tested and accredited with SANS (South African National Standards) and other certification standards are being investigated.
