Multi Stage Scissor Lift for Turbine Assembly

Multi Stage Scissor Lift for Turbine Assembly

Overview

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.

 

Features

  • 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)
