Everyone likes to see a project meet certain standard parameters. However, sometimes a project is unique and thus requires a special design to meet the specific requirements of a given quote.
When this type of situation arises, it is best to deal with a firm of hydraulic experts. At ITI HYDRAULIK, our engineering team will design non-standard parts for you, so that you can complete your installation.
We can also work with you to design custom-made hydraulic jacks for your company, as we did for our client: Mongrain Vertical Transport, who had a special project in the New York area. It was a matter of designing and building two single stage inground jacks, capable of lifting a platform with a load of 140,000 pounds, which represent 63 1/2 tons. The purpose of the platform was to lift a 45-foot tractor-trailer!
In the industry, ITI HYDRAULIK is known for its ability to build extremely large custom jacks. Here are some of the project’s specifications to serve as an example. Each piston has a diameter of 15 ¾ inches with a ¾-inch-thick wall. The casing is 20 inches in diameter, and the wall is up to ½ inch thick, which add up to a total weight of 9 750 pounds per cylinder. The jack lifts a load over a distance of 40 feet to attain a fully extended length of 80 feet once its maximum height is reached.
It came as no surprise that we had to use two delivery trucks for this exceptionally large job!
So, regardless of the size of your project, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the options available to you.
