With O.H.& S. issues being so important in the workplace, Larzep Australia have introduced a range of lightweight aluminium cylinders to the Australian market.
These lightweight aluminium cylinders are available ex stock in single acting spring return and single acting hollow bore cylinders. Special aluminium cylinders outside of the marketed range can be manufactured to suit customers’ specific requirements, including telescopic type cylinder.
The body, stop ring and piston are hard anodised to strengthen the working area and extend its working life. High strength aluminium is utilized in the production of all Larzep aluminium cylinders.
Larzep Australia recently manufactured four special aluminium cylinders to suit a client’s specific requirement. The cylinders were half the weight of a comparable tonnage steel cylinder, making the positioning of the cylinders, to perform a difficult lift, much easier and safer for the operators. The freight costs to locate the cylinders in a remote location in Australia were considerably reduced and each cylinder could be manually unloaded, without the need for a forklift.
With the heavy haulage industry being so important to industry for a variety of moving and re-location tasks, lightweight cylinders make good business sense, saving operators costly time loss accidents and meeting O.H&S. directives for lifting heavy weights keeps staff and operators happy.
Larzep Australia can meet specific requirements and with fully trained distributors across Australia in a timely manner.
