Load Movement:Manual rotation, 360° edgewise, with automatic locking at each 1/4 revolution. Assisted manual tilt, 90° between upright and flat
The Quadra-Tilt Vacuum Lifters feature an innovative four-bar tilt mechanism that significantly reduces the effort of tilting heavy loads between flat and upright positions. This tilt mechanism also reduces hazards associated with lifting loads from upright racks: When a load is tilted to either the upright or the flat position, the vacuum lifter maintains the load position automatically without using latches, eliminating the tendency for a load to “kick back” at the operator’s knees.
The MRTA6-DC vacuum lifters also feature Powr-Grip’s Dual Vacuum System, 360° manual rotation, (re)movable vacuum pads and extension arms that accommodate a variety of load sizes and shapes.
The Dual Vacuum System features two vacuum line circuits, allowing the vacuum lifter to maintain the vacuum level for one circuit even if an unexpected vacuum loss occurs in the other one. This system is designed to reduce the risk of falling loads, which could result from breakage or other accidents that compromise one area of the vacuum system. In addition, it features audible and visible alarms that warn the operator whenever the vacuum level is not sufficient for lifting the maximum load weight. Complies with CE Standard EN 13155.
VACUUM LIFTER HIRE THROUGHOUT THE UK
Using vacuum lifters in cold & windy weather
Strong winds could cause the load sway violently or to drop. Remember that wind speed increases with height, so high level glazing and construction work in high winds is even more hazardous.
We advise that vacuum lifters should not be used in the rain, the machine needs to be kept as dry as possible in case water reaches the electrical system, causing the machine to short circuit and fail. Leaving a vacuum lifter in heavy rain or submerging it into water can also seriously damage the machine’s components.
Vacuum lifters have a recommended operating temperature of between -1°C and 40°C, so in cold conditions machines should be inspected thoroughly.
In below freezing conditions, if there is any moisture in the vacuum lifter it could cause damage as water increases in volume as it freezes and turns to ice. This could result in airflows being blocked which could break the vacuum seal and cause a leak, making lifting dangerous. There is also the possibility of the electric motors in the vacuum pumps freezing and causing the lifter to fail.
A load that has been left out in the rain may be dangerous to lift as moisture and dirt on its surface increases the risk of slippage. This is why both the load and vacuum pads must be clean and dry before starting the lift.
Calculating glass weight (kg)
Example: 3070mm x 2150mm x 10mm
Becomes : 3.07m x 2.15m x 10mm x 2.5 = 165 kg
If the unit of glass is double or triple glazed, the thickness of each leaf of the unit should be added together and treated as a single leaf. Remember, never add the air space. Finally with double glazed units, a further 2% of the total needs to be added to the weight to include the frame (spacer bar) and if it is a framed unit a further 5% is added.
