Pflow Industries has added the Modular Series D hydraulic lift to its lineup of vertical material lifts and vertical reciprocating conveyors. The Modular Series D is a modular version of its Series D hydraulic lift and is delivered in two or three stackable, bolt-together sections. The modular design allows for installation in only one day.
The new modular lift is especially well suited for mezzanine or balcony applications in both new construction and existing structures. It can efficiently lift loads up to 3,000 pounds between two levels and can move loads to heights of 15 feet at a speed of 17 feet per minute. It is available with either a 5 x 5 foot or 6 x 6 foot carriage and in either 2,000- or 3,000-pound capacity models. The unit is fully self-supporting and, depending on the application, can be loaded and unloaded from any of three operating sides on both levels.
The Modular Series D hydraulic lift is low-maintenance. It is driven by dual 2-inch ram direct-acting hydraulic cylinders and has no cables, chains, bearings, or other components that can break or require lubrication.
The Modular Series D also features fully enclosed construction with a welded steel hoistway superstructure containing the lift carriage, guide rails, hydraulic cylinder, and safety gates with interlocks. The lifts also provide a pre-wired remote mounted control panel and motor, ready for immediate installation. Push button stations and gate interlocks feature simple quick-connect hookup.
Numerous safety measures are included, such as an automatic safety barrier for fall protection should someone override the upper level gate. Additionally, adjustable mechanical stops ensure that the lift is level with the upper deck. A redundant overload protection also prevents carriage movement if it is loaded to more than 120 percent of rated capacity, and velocity fuses prevent uncontrolled descent in the case of a hydraulic hose rupture.
