JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd has successfully completed a two part project for the removal of a fire damaged trommel and installation of a new trommel.
The trommel 14.5m x 3.95m x 4.2m 35,000kg was located 5.4m above the ground with limited headroom and surrounded by associated components making it a very tricky operation. Due to its ability to operate in confined spaces and lift capacity at high level lifting JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd utilised the 300Ton capacity lift system to lift the trommel from its support legs which were removed and lowered the trommel down to a super low steerable semi low loader for the removal from site.
The second part of the project was the installation of a new trommel which was delivered in from Europe. Due to the limited access on site JB Rawcliffe & Sons Ltd supplied a steerable semi low loader for the trommel to be transhipped onto. Again the 300Ton capacity lift system was used and the trommel lifted and placed onto its support legs. Both parts of the project were completed within schedule, budget and without incident.
