The sea front refurbishment at Redcar required the lifting and placement of hundreds of stepped concrete revetments. Various sizes weighing up to 15000Kgs are handled using the engine powered vacuum lifter. Site safety dictates a dual-circuit vacuum system as stipulated by BS13155, providing an ultimate holding force of approx 75 tonnes. Diesel operation ensures the equipment can be operated without the need for battery replacement or charging in addition to powerful vacuum flows needed when handling concrete.

Alloy plate & slabs measuring 3000mm x 1500mm x 100mm and weighing up to 1500kg can be lifted from either the horizontal or vertical plane. Turning the load is facilitated by a hydraulic cylinder operated by remote control pendant. High safety factors are required to turn such loads and this is achived using two of our heavy duty M106 plate vacuum lifting pads.

As part of the sea front refurbishment at Redcar UK, moulded concrete revetments measuring 4.9m x 2.9m needed to be lifted from moulds. The inverted revetments were lifted from the flat face and extracted. The equipment is operated by remote control and has an inbuild storage stand.

Decanting heavy tapered drums during processing was solved by this self levelling vacuum gripper. The gripper was designed with in built load compensation to accommodate unloaded & loaded conditions, allowing the vacuum head to be easily attached to the drums. Once lifted the drums can be poured under precise control with ease by the operator.
