Manual Cylinder Lifter and Rotator

Designed for handling cylindrical water filters, this model has manual lift, clamp and rotation functions.

A national utility company required a bespoke filter/cylinder lifter and rotator for use in a water treatment process. They needed manual lift, clamp and rotation functions; these features can be powered should there be high unit utilisation.

Unit operation

The unit can store filters vertically, grouping them together with just 70mm between them. Our design team engineered narrow clamping pads to fit between the gaps in a row of vertical filters. To operate, you manoeuvre the unit to the filters and align the pads between them. A manual hydraulic pump allows you to clamp a cylinder, while two separate handles provide the lift and rotation functions.
