FuelCell Energy Loads Components with the Help of Two PFlow Material Lifts
FUEL CELL MANUFACTURER
FuelCell Energy, Inc. needed to assemble extremely large, heavy fuel cell component pieces and solve related vertical lifting problems. PFlow designed a system that incorporates two material lifts.
The first material lift is a screw lift mechanism and lowers a 90,000 lb. piece below grade level. The second material lift (F Series Mechanical) carries a 20,000 lbs piece, traverses it sideways and then lowers it on top the 90,000 lb. piece.
After the two elements are assembled together, the first material lift raises, with an 110,000 lb. load, back to grade level for shipping.
