Bricking Solutions has offered EX Lift Suspended Platforms for improved safety and efficiency during the servicing and relining of vertical vessels. This platform includes fast assembly and boosted productivity for applications including cyclones, lime kilns, pre calciners, furnaces, etc.
The system provides a safer and more productive alternative to traditional methods used in vertical vessel applications. To perform maintenance and relining tasks, crews can use electric, manual, or hydraulic hoists to move the platform up and down inside vertical vessels. It is possible for the platform to move at up to 11 m/min. (35 ft/min.) with Spider SC series electric hoists.
The system is made with high-strength aluminium, which has the same strength as steel at a third of the weight. It is reconfigurable to four different sizes to fit vessels from 3.5 m to 6.7 m dia. The size of the platform can be adjusted by up to 1 m while suspended by changing the outer panels, which allows for transition between different vessel widths. Custom outer panels are also available, to fit the individual walls of a vessel and mechanical outriggers can be used to manoeuvre and stabilise the platform. The platform has a load capacity of 2722 kg.
The platform is also configured with a removable centre disc and material hoist, which enables the easy lifting of materials.
“Traditional vertical vessel relining and servicing involves scaffolding, crude platforms, or, sometimes, people just hanging off ropes on bos’n chairs, making it a slow and dangerous process,” said Lars Lindgren, President of Bricking Solutions. “We developed the EZ Lift Suspended Platform to give customers a tool they can use to improve safety and speed up their work, allowing them to move on to other tasks faster.”
