Hydraulic Cranes

One of the most powerful means of lifting objects is with the strength of a hydraulic crane.  By harnessing the strength that liquid under pressure gives, and the ease with which it can be used, it is possible to transfer a relatively small amount of effort from one place to another, and hydraulic cranes are amongst the most efficient lifting systems available in the modern workplace.Hydraulic Cranes.

 

One of the most powerful means of lifting objects is with the strength of a hydraulic crane.  By harnessing the strength that liquid under pressure gives, and the ease with which it can be used, it is possible to transfer a relatively small amount of effort from one place to another, and hydraulic cranes are amongst the most efficient lifting systems available in the modern workplace.

  

Quite simply, a hydraulic system works with a system of pumps and pistons that are filled with a liquid – usually a light oil or water.  By moving the liquid under pressure from the pumps, pistons can be extended or reduced, and when these pistons are connected to a system of levers, the pistons can be used to lift surprisingly heavy weights.

 

Because the hydraulic cranes use a fixed system of pipes, constant pressure can be maintained once a part of the system has been moved into place, and this makes them extremely stable in use, and able to support relatively large weights.

 

With the high pressure hydraulic cranes, you are able to use a fairly light weight system that consumes a relatively small amount of power to move objects around, and these can actually be hand powered under certain circumstances to achieve the same results as you would get from a power system – although slightly slower.

 

Hydraulic cranes are amongst the simplest systems that you can use within any industrial process, and are very easy to maintain.  Provided that all the pumps and pistons are regularly checked for any leaks, and potential stress points where the levers are supported are inspected for damage, the crane will continue to operate completely reliably for long periods of time.

 

The comparatively light weight of most hydraulic cranes, and the ease with which they can be moved from one area to another within the factory or distribution center, makes them a very versatile tool with lots of uses on a day to day basis.  From simple loading jobs in your loading bay area where the portable hydraulic cranes can be used to lift objects into a waiting truck through to more complex jobs within the main factory, the lifts will come in very useful.

 

There are a variety of different hydraulic cranes on the market, and they serve several different purposes.  The most common systems are based on a jib that is lifted using a piston, although more complex versions are also available.  Some of these variants make use of a cantilever to offset some of the weight being lifted and allow the hydraulic system to manage much heavier weights than the system could otherwise support with ease.

 

For light lifting jobs, smaller hydraulic cranes that can be easily moved from one location to another are very useful, and will often be hand powered using a manual pump.  Although they are able to support heavy weights, the actual lifting process is difficult with heavy weights, and you should use a heavier duty system that uses electric power for its pumping system.

  

Whatever system you need, choosing a hydraulic crane carefully, and then ensuring that it is well maintained will provide years of quality service within your business, and become a system that you can trust.
