Custom Example: FuelCell Energy, Inc. - Torrington, Connecticut
Company needed to assemble extremely large, heavy fuel cell components and solve related vertical lifting problems. PFlow designed a system that incorporates two vertical material handling devices. Lift #1, which incorporates a screw lift mechanism, lowers a 90,000 lb. piece below grade level. Lift #2 lifts a 20,000 lb. piece, traverses the piece sideways and then lowers it on top the 90,000 lb. piece. After the two elements are assembled together, Lift #1 then raises the resulting 110,000 lb. load back to grade level for shipping.
