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.
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.
The Multi-Pipe Lifter is our medium-lift tool. It can lift 22,000 lbs (10 tons) or more from a single support beam.
our tools are a key component of our lifting solution
We work with your plant maintenance contractor to engineer a safe lifting solution, providing clearance between the pipe and the entire top section of the pipe support whilst the lines are in-service.
This gives free access and workability to conduct maintenance in a single step. A lift plan is provided determining the number and positioning of lifting devices and a pipe stress analysis is conducted to determine the allowable bending profile for each pipe under live conditions. Our system achieves lifting heights of up to 6” (project specific for greater heights), ideal to perform NDT, maintenance or improvements. Lifting is done remotely using hydraulic rams to avoid personnel exposure and risks. The lift is then vertically secured, declared a static structure (rather than a suspended load) and therefore safe to conduct work underneath.
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.
The Jacks are tested and accredited with SANS (South African National Standards) and other certification standards are being investigated.
