The versatile hydraulic pulling unit is suitable for a multitude of applications in many fields of industry where loads have to be moved or tension applied during erection, assembly or whilst carrying out other functions or work. Not to be used for lifting applications.
Some proven applications are confirmed as follows:
- Tensioning of coal face conveyor chains.
- Tensioning of belt conveyors.
- Installation/salvage of roof support systems.
- Installation/salvage of coal face conveyor sections.
- Moving of Underground equipment.
- Pulling together of sub assembly structures for joining.
- Pulling of pipes, ducts and jointing.
- Tensioning of shuttering for construction work.
- Moving of machinery.
- Moving of steelwork/structures.
- Heavy vehicle recovery.
- Demolition work.
- Tensioning/pulling of cables.
- Underground pipe replacement and bursting operations.
- Not to be used for lifting applications.
Use in a marine environment / underwater (offshore)
The manufacturer does not know of an instance where the units have been operated totally submerged in water though from a mechanical point of view, they see no operational reason why the units should not work subsea; nor can they see any reason why the rope should not work adequately under water. Please note that, in time, corrosion will affect the units. Obviously the equipment must subject to periodic thorough examinations to ensure the machine and rope are fit for use and not subject excess corrosion. (To conform with LOLER, 12 month is the maximum period between inspections, to be reduced dependant on individual application; for example in a marine environment / offshore)
