Concrete Revetment Lifting
July 07, 2011 at 8:40 AM
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.
