Crane to maintain cyclones

Ever aware of the handling complexities during cyclone maintenance, Multotec Process Equipment has developed a jib crane installation which can be mounted on top of the cyclone cluster distributor.

This then facilitates removal and installation of the cyclones and any other component. It is typical for cyclone installations to be at the highest level of a process plant, and there is often no crane available.

In addition, where plants are in more remote locations access to cranes or materials handling equipment is limited.

It is anticipated that having a dedicated crane available will not only reduce downtime and costs associated with maintenance but will also enhance safety during these activities. In addition to making it easier to handle the cyclones and componentry, the maintenance crew will be able to attach their safety harnesses to the cross member when working at height.
