Description

Lifting hydraulic system: Big Maneuvers for the revamping of 5 ship-to-shore cranes5 ship-to-shore cranes were raised and transferred from the edge of the dock, before regeneration, once the work is done and the crane are revamped then the transport is done on the opposite direction.

FPT has designed the hydraulic system for lifting the heavy cranes of 1,160 tons. The weight of the crane was raised by 8 hydraulic jacks FPT model CSE-250/300-GS-TU from 250 tons at 700 bar, with a stroke of 300 mm.

The cylinders are supplied single acting, load return, lock nut and with tilting head. The nut allow to keep safely raised the load. The cylinders were produced with a NITOX treatment that confers high resistance to corrosion to the cylinders thus being the ideal solution in marine and offshore environments. The cylinders are operated and managed by a hydraulic high-pressure pump with a flow rate of 4.5 l / m at 70 bar and flow rate of 1.8 l / m to 700 bar, 25 liter reservoir, external pressure regulator, solenoid valve 3 way / 3 position, with remote control from 12 meters.

The load is then transferred on the trolleys and the crane was subsequently moved at a speed of 3 meters per minute. The stacking cranes were then positioned at a distance of about 200 m from the lighthouse tower.

High pressure custom equipment for the lifting, bolting and tensioning sectors. Hydraulic systems created by a team of specialists and engineers, who follows the customer in the phase of technical consulting, in the analysis of the project, in the design, production and implementation of all needs, evaluating the best technical solutions in a personalized manner. FPT: the specialist of the custom made solutions.
Custom hydraulic cylinders, lifting jacks, custom pumps from 700 until 4.000 bar with very specific features, Synchronous Lifting System that is one of the world’s most advanced heavy lifting systems, custom hydraulic bolt tensioners to fit the different applications, custom made hydraulic nuts and special tools and equipment are manufactured by FPT Fluid Power Technology.
