FuelCell Energy Loads Components with the Help of PFlow Material Lifts

← All Topics

FuelCell Energy, Inc.,FuelCell material lift needed to assemble extremely large, heavy fuel cell component pieces and solve related vertical lifting problems at its Torrington, Conn., facility. 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-lb. 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 a 110,000-lb. load, back to grade level for shipping.
