Handling Specialty was asked to quote on a vertical assembly platform that is being used during the assembly process for large energy turbines. The lift is mounted in a pit and rises approximately 35 feet, safely holding personnel and equipment, as the turbine assembly is completed.
The platform features 3 (three) round removable plates, which can be manufactured at a variety of sizes. For safety, the lift also features safety lock-up bars to hold the lift in a raised position for regular maintenance, and hydraulic cylinders equipped with velocity fuses to provide rate of descent protection.
- Heavy duty scissor lift
- 252” vertical travel (21 feet)
- Raised height 347” from pit floor to platform (approximately 29 feet)
- Lowered height less than 8 feet
- 1.8” per second rise rate, lower rate by gravity (hydraulic cylinders equipped with velocity fuses to provide rate of descent protection)
