REM-B Hydraulics makes use of Enerpac pump to enhance lifting security

Belgium based mostly REM-B Hydraulics has developed a hydraulic shackle release powerpack based mostly on Enerpac’s cordless XC-Series hydraulic pump for connecting and releasing 1000 tonne, eighty five m excessive, offshore wind turbine bases during quayside lifting onto a pontoon.

REM-B Hydraulics developed the powerpacks for international metal development company, Smulders. ที่วัดแรงดันน้ำ -contained, remote-controlled hydraulics powerpacks are a safer alternative to long lengths of hydraulic hoses linked to a quayside pump.
Lifting 85m excessive fabricated turbine bases from the quayside on to a barge for delivery offshore requires shackles to attach the turbine base to a three-point lifting body and crane. Engaging and releasing the shackles is completed using a double appearing valve arrangement powered by quayside pump connected by long hoses. Smulders was on the lookout for a simpler and safer technique of participating and releasing the shackles with out the necessity for lengthy hoses.
Attached to each leg of the lifting frame, the REM-B Hydraulics’ system removes the requirement for long hoses through the use of a battery-powered, Enerpac XC pump to operate a bi-directional valve related to a cylinder that strikes the pin connecting the shackle. The whole system is contained in a compact metal case with an exterior aerial linking each unit to a wi-fi controller. For increased security, the shackle pins are activated sequentially.
Weighing 9.9 kg, the Enerpac XC-Series hydraulic pump is supplied with an efficient electric motor powered by an industrial grade 28-volt, Lithium-Ion battery, delivering distinctive velocity and run time and is designed for remote outside locations.
