FuelCell Energy Loads Components with the Help of PFlow Material Lifts
FuelCell Energy, Inc., 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 atop the 90,000-lb. piece.
After the two elements are assembled together, the first material lift rises, with a 110,000-lb. load, back to grade level for shipping.
