The mild steel eme Sockets have been designed for North American conditions, and to complete the lightweight and portable Davit Crane Lifting System.
A: Sockets are available in 316 Stainless Steel by special order.
A: Yes, there are caps for each Top Mount Socket, Side Mount Socket and Flush Mount Socket.
A: eme Sockets can be placed as close as two inches from the edge of a tank or wet well, using a Top (end) Mount Socket. Side Mount Sockets and Flush Mount Sockets are also available. eme recommends that customers consult a Professional Engineer or other qualified professional for direction when installing Sockets.
A: No, eme does not install Sockets. It is the responsibility of the customer to arrange for installation. We suggest that customers:
A: If possible, a drain line should be installed to remove water or moisture that may collect at the bottom of the Socket tube. The person doing the site plan should determine whether a drain line can be installed. All eme Sockets are provided with a drain hole at the bottom of the Socket tube.
A: Existing Sockets can be used with the eme Davits as long as the Socket hole is greater in diameter than that of the eme Davit pin. Customers should obtain proof from competent persons that their existing Sockets can handle the forces that will be imposed upon them by eme Davits. eme can supply Custom inserts that will allow customers to use their current Sockets – eme's product performance will start with the insert and not the Socket.
