A new range of industrial grade lifting bags and controls has been introduced by Enerpac for lifting, pushing, pressing or moving loads safely and smoothly. Enerpac offers nine sizes of the low clearance lifting bags which use compressed air up to 116 psi (8 bar) or water to achieve load capacities ranging from 3.1- 67.2 ton (27-656 kN).

These uniquely designed lifting bags feature the highest friction surface available, providing increased safety for applications including:

  • Construction
  • Earthmoving
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining and energy
  • Quarrying
  • Oil and gas
  • Primary production
  • Heavy transport and machinery
  • Marine
  • Maintenance
  • Materials handling
  • Safety
Enerpac lifting bags – which are Kevlar reinforced and “centre target” marked for optimised safety in use – complement Australia’s most comprehensive range of high-pressure (700 bar) hydraulic lifting equipment, which is engineered by Enerpac to pack more lifting power into a smaller space and makes cylinder placement simpler and safer. The lifting bags also complement Enerpac’s new system of plastic cribbing blocks and wedges which optimise safety when stabilising heavy loads after they have been lifted.

Features of the lifting bags include:

  • Collapsed heights from 28-31mm for easy access under and around loads, with extended heights from 157-541mm.
  • Aggressive high-friction surface to prevent bags from slipping. They can be stacked up to two bags high for extended lifting capabilities. 
  • Non-conducting rubber, which resists oil and most chemicals and has an operating range from 0-90 deg C.
  • 25 ton and larger sizes have integrated Nylon® straps and heavy duty reinforced lugs
  • Industrial interchange air supply to deadman controller
  • Safety coupler inflation hoses which protect against accidental disconnections
Enerpac Regional Manager Australia and New Zealand Mr Tony Brooks says the big advantages of lifting bags include easy access to restricted spaces, such as those around awkwardly shaped loads or loads in confined spaces, for example. Restricted access situations can range from beneath vehicles and machinery being replaced, recovered or repositioned, to pipeline trenches and around resource and exploration equipment. The lifting bags can also tolerate restricted surface pressure, which is useful when they are lifting from softer surfaces in trenches and tunnels, for example.

“Enerpac Lifting Bags perfectly complement the wide ranges of extreme force tools for which Enerpac has been a respected brand leader for more than 50 years. They are part of a global range from a quality supplier with service and technical backup throughout Australia and New Zealand.”
