HOW IT WORKS
Lift Technologies, Inc. manufactures vacuum lifters for use in lifting all diameters and various
types of pipe from steel and concrete to plastic. The LT30 vacuum lifter uses a diesel engine coupled with a high volume
vacuum pump and lifting pad to create a powerful seal which can lift up to 30,000 lbs. Each machine is fitted with lifting
pads that create the seal required for the machine to draw a vacuum between pipe and pad when the rubber seals come in contact
with the pipe. The lifting pads come in a variety of diameters to fit project specific pipe diameters.
Typically the lifter is used as an excavator attachment to lift and position pipe as needed.
This allows the operator to move the pipe in a smooth rotating motion versus using a sideboom and turning the entire machine
to position the pipe. Once the pad is in place the operator pushes a remote button from the cab of the excavator, engaging
a vacuum valve that causes the pump to draw a vacuum. The vacuum created between the pipe and lifting pad keeps the
pipe attached to the lifter, allowing the operator to lift and move the pipe until the vacuum on the pad is released.
The efficiency and safety of
vacuum lifting make it ideal for loading and unloading large quantities of pipe.
