Lifting three 3,500 lb. pumps out of a deep pit at a Water & Wastewater Treatment Plant was made easy with a Gantry Crane from eme.
Water & Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greensville Alabama
To lift three 3,500 lb. pumps in a 26 ft. deep by 25 ft. wide pit.
Previously, a large crane had to be called in to lift the pumps. This expensive solution for routine maintenance needed to be scheduled in advance.
Combining an eme 4400R Gantry Crane and a 30 ft. beam that has a lift capacity of 4,400 lbs. and a clear span of 27 ft., with an Electric Chain Hoist with pendant control, operators were able to move the Locking 'Surround-Beam' Trolley with ropes attached to the Trolley, and then run over sheaves.
This work was done behind a safety fence. It accomplished the goal of maintenance of the three large pumps with considerable savings.
