Enerpac (A Division of Actuant Corp) introduces a new portable hydraulic jacking system rated for heavy lifts up to 200 tons (181 metric tonnes). The new portable self-contained Pow’R-LOCK lift system also features full-time automatic load holding protection for optimum safety in operation.
The PL-Series Pow’R-LOCK portable lifting system will be introduced to Australasia at the Queensland Mining Exhibition QME 2014 in Mackay from July 22-24.
Purpose-built to provide safe and secure lifting for heavy off-highway machinery including trucks, tractors, civil engineering machinery and implements, Pow’R-LOCK accomplishes its load-holding protection by utilising a patent pending control system that maintains the position of a rotating locking collar near the cylinder base, providing a mechanical lock regardless of cylinder movement and control cycle, without any operator intervention.
The heavy-duty lifting system integrates into a rugged mobile cart with a high capacity and compact 700 bar (10,000 psi) hydraulic cylinder and an air-driven hydraulic pump unit with complete valving and control systems. Available in two versions featuring strokes of 356mm and 622mm, the portable lift system is ideal for companies where time and safety are paramount, such as mining and energy, oil and gas, heavy infrastructure construction and heavy transport.
Enerpac Regional Manager, Australia and New Zealand, Mr Denis Matulin observes that machinery servicing can be a time-consuming and hazardous task if not undertaken properly; frustrating problems can arise both in workshop situations where space is at a premium, and in remote situations where normal plant services and lifting surfaces are not available. The easily manoeuvrable, self-contained, Pow’R-LOCK lifting jack system offers an effective solution, which can be used in even the tightest locations and over rough terrain where recommended safety procedures are followed.
Key features of Pow’R-LOCK hydraulic jacking system include: Redundant lowering valves, PO (pilot operated) check and counter-balance to add safety to the retract operation; Pow’R-LOCK locking system providing autonomous protection during lift, lower and hold function; Pneumatic operation for use in potentially hazardous environments; Patented cylinder and control technology providing double-acting lock-nut protection with low collapsed heights; Nitro-carburization providing additional corrosion protection on the cylinder; Simple two-button operation for raise and lower functions; and, Integrated tilt saddle to reduce side loading and extend the life of the jack in extreme situations.
A large base plate, which increases contact with the ground, distributes load, resists tipping and achieves a stability factor, allows Pow’R-LOCK to be classified as a vehicle support stand. An ergonomic six-position handle maximises leverage and hand clearance under vehicles when positioning to a lift point.
Pow’R-LOCK is backed by Enerpac’s extensive product support from national and worldwide networks of local distributors and authorised service centres as well as regional customer and technical service centres.
