Safetech have supplied a customised 2 Tonne Scissor Lift for a smelter operation. The application involved removing heavy steel drain plates from large hoppers containing powdered slurry.
The hopper has a conveyor belt directly under drain plate which blocked any ground based lifting equipment from being positioned directly beneath and the alternatives was to install a temporary scaffold. This was difficult and heavy and controlled lift/lower was not available.
A Safetech 2,000kg capacity lift table mounted on a special cantilevered mobile base is able to move in over the conveyor belt directly under the hopper drain plate.
The lift table platform supports the steel drain plate while studs are removed then it is gently lowered and wheeled clear. A special epoxy finish and electrical enclosures protects from spillage from hopper.
- Portable – only rolled into position when required
- A single operator can perform the task as no heavy lifting is required
- Simple press button operation to raise/lower drain plate
- The customer felt that Safetech’s long and established track record provided him with security when selecting a supplier
