When the trunnion bearings on the heavy furnace failed, the steel mill faced a formidable task. The furnace weighed 1,300 tons and the work space was incredibly restricted. To overcome these challenges, Engineered Rigging custom designed the Jacking Tower which lifted the furnace and securely supported it while the bearings and support gear were quickly and safely serviced.
Engineered Rigging’s Jacking Tower is a modular system capable of lifting large, heavy components in excess of 1,300 tons (2.6 million pounds).
The Jacking Tower’s modular design allows for easy transport and rapid assembly. The system can be installed and ready to lift any over-sized component within 24 hours of access to the project location.
