Some industrial lifting applications require a longer cylinder stroke to lift the load to the required height. Because of the direct relationship between the stroke length and the closed height of a cylinder, this requirement is not always possible with a standard cylinder. These situations need a special solution for safe and correct lifting; the Holmatro Step Cylinder Set.
Step Cylinder Sets, with a capacity of 25 to 150 tons are fitted with a step plate and a plunger with a stroke length varying from 125mm to 200mm. It also has an enlarged saddle in order to protect the plunger. & stabilise the load The cylinder moves upwards with the load which increases stability during lifting. Large objects, such as oil tanks and transformers can be lifted with the aid of Step Cylinder systems. All of this takes place without the use of a crane.
