Screw Lift

Applications - Fuel Cell Manufacturer

FuelCell Energy, Inc. | Torrington, Connecticut

FuleCell Energy needed to assemble an extremely large, heavy fuel cell components and solve related vertical lifting problems. PFlow designed a system that incorporates two vertical material handling devices.

Lift 1, a screw lift mechanism, lowers a 90,000 lb piece below grade level.

Lift 2, lifts a 20,000 lbs piece, traverses the piece sideways and then lowers it on top the 90,000 lb piece.

After the two elements are assembled together, Lift 1 then raises the resulting 110,000 lb load back to grade level for shipping.
