Qube multi-lift vacuum unit

Friday, 24 January, 2020 | Supplied by: Qube Holdings

A multi-lift vacuum unit developed by Qube enables loading and unloading to be carried out efficiently. The unit minimises the risks associated with handling coated pipes on board vessels during discharge, and in storage yards.

The multi-lift vacuum unit can be used in a larger scale, and operated remotely through wireless technology, eliminating the need for hooks, slings or chains, and for operators on the ground or in the hold of vessels. This also increases safety for personnel. The process also reduces the risk of damage to delicate materials and bonded coatings on the pipe. With no need for hooks and slings, the technology enables fast lift cycles and less downtime than conventional methods.

Qube collaborated with Vacuworx to develop the product, with the development earning the company the 2019 APGA Safety Award. The product uses air sensing technology to determine whether a pipe is underneath the pad or not, allowing the system to lift pipe without requiring a full load. Damage from impact and from hooks dropping on pipes is also reduced; and as the pipe ends are kept clear, damage to bevelled edges is also reduced.
