Enerpac’s new split-flow pump kits expand heavy lifting capabilities
The new split-flow kits allow operators to combine units to accommodate up to 32 individual lifting points, greatly expanding the capabilities of heavy lifting and rental fleets with minimum investment.
Enerpac has launched split-flow pump upgrade kits that provide the ability to network multiple pumps and coordinated lift points for higher accuracy synchronisation. The new split-flow kits allow operators to combine units to accommodate up to 32 individual lifting points, greatly expanding the capabilities of heavy lifting and rental fleets with minimum investment.
Split-flow pump kits allow multiple pumps to be networked together under one consolidated control unit to make a system as small or as large as needed for a specific lifting application. The upgrade kits are an inexpensive means of increasing the number of lift points for contractors that already have split-flow pumps. With existing smaller split-flow pumps, a user does not need to purchase a larger stand-alone unit as one can simply connect the existing pumps with a network kit. No permanent modifications to the pumps are necessary.
1mm Lifting Accuracy
In critical applications, accuracy to within 1mm can be achieved with synchronisation upgrade kits. Split-flow pump kits can upgrade an existing system to provide a feedback loop via stroke sensors that results in a much more accurate lift. Pressure differential in systems with a large, centralised pump and different, longer hose lengths results in loss of accuracy and difficulty synchronising movement between lift points. Split-flow pump kits allow pumps to be connected closer to the lifting points and synchronised resulting in shorter hose lengths and greater stroke accuracy, increasing safety in heavy multi-point lifts.
Network and Synchro Upgrade Kits
Three upgrade kits are available from Enerpac: SFP Network Kit: Connects several split-flow pumps together to control them from a single control station, allowing the operator to increase the number of lifting points, Single SFP Synchro Kit: Synchronises the lifting points of a single split-flow pump through use of feedback from stroke and pressure sensors and Multiple SFP Synchro Kit: Connects several split-flow pumps together and synchronise all the lifting points using stroke and pressure transducers.
