The efficiency and safety of vacuum lifting make it ideal for loading and unloading
large quantities of pipe.
Vacuum lifters are for use in lifting all diameters and various types of pipe from
steel and concrete to plastic. The LT30 vacuum lifter uses a diesel engine coupled
with a high volume vacuum pump and lifting pad to create a powerful seal which can
lift up to 30,000 lbs. Each machine is fitted with lifting pads that create the
seal required for the machine to draw a vacuum between pipe and pad when the rubber
seals come in contact with the pipe. The lifting pads come in a variety of diameters
to fit project specific pipe diameters.
Typically the lifter is used as an excavator attachment to lift and position pipe
as needed. This allows the operator to move the pipe in a smooth rotating motion
versus using a sideboom and turning the entire machine to position the pipe. Once
the pad is in place the operator pushes a remote button from the cab of the excavator,
engaging a vacuum valve that causes the pump to draw a vacuum. The vacuum created
between the pipe and lifting pad keeps the pipe attached to the lifter, allowing
the operator to lift and move the pipe until the vacuum on the pad is released.
LT 30 DESIGN OVERVIEW
The LT30 Vacuum Lifter is an excavator attachment designed to lift pipe and other
products. It enables the operator to move products efficiently from one location
Safety features are an important part of vacuum lifter design and operation. The
LT30 has audible and visual alarms to alert the excavator operator to a low vacuum
condition or other malfunction so damage to the product or machine can be avoided. In
addition, a radio remote control is used to operate the vacuum lifter. The radio
signal is digitally encoded and uses spread spectrum technology to prevent possible
The most durable, industrial duty components and parts available
are used to build the self-contained lifter. All components on the LT30 vacuum lifter
are carefully chosen for their durability and operating endurance under harsh conditions. The
LT30 is specifically designed to operate routinely in below zero temperatures.
