Screw Lift

Applications - Fuel Cell Manufacturer

FuelCell Energy, Inc.
Torrington, Connecticut

FuleCell Energy needed to assemble 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, which incorporates a screw lift mechanism, lowers a 90,000 lbs 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 lbs piece. After the two elements are assembled together, Lift #1 then raises the resulting 110,000 lbs load back to grade level for shipping.
