A food manufacturer required pump motors on process machines to be lifted during maintenance operations. The area had limited space — not only on the floor, but also around the machine. There was no overhead crane service and the area was not accessible to fork trucks. The manufacturer needed a custom solution that was able to lift multiple 1,000-pound pump motors.
Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment Inc. (ELS) had the solution. The Elmira, Ont.-based company designed a custom solution to accommodate the unique application. ELS engineered, manufactured and installed a floor-mounted cantilevered monorail system consisting of two headers, five columns and four monorails. The system was tied back to an overhead building beam to secure its position. Installation of the system required careful planning to work around the existing process machinery.
Although the pump motors are infrequently lifted, this effective custom lifting solution provides critically important overhead lifting capability for ongoing machine maintenance.
