Innovative Crane Makes Cyclone Maintenance Easy and Safe (Nov 2108)

Ever aware of the handling complexities during cyclone maintenance, Multotec Process Equipment has developed an innovative 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 it will also enhance safety during these activities. In addition to making it easier to handle the cyclones and componentry, the maintenance crew will also be able to attach their safety harnesses to the cross member when working at height.

Multotec offers a complete range of standard and customised cyclones, constructed from various high quality materials. These cyclones are engineered to provide maximum separation efficiency with lower operating costs.
