The elevator fits in an 18in manway or opening and is used in boilers and other type confined areas to install scaffolding, work on trays, brick, etc.
Rugged elevators for power plants
The Century CE-6000 is used for standard permanent and temporary rugged use. It has a 6,000lb capacity, holds 30 persons and is large enough for two full-size gurneys. The elevator is equipped with a variable frequency drive (VFD) for smooth starts and stops, extends the life of motor brakes and has leveling accuracy.
With a 200ft/min capacity, an automatic lubrication system and overload sensing devices with digital readout, the elevator is mainly used for scrubbers, boilers, crushers and towers.
