A hoist-based vacuum lifting system that lets one operator lift and rotate kegs, barrels, and cylinders, that are equally balanced, is being introduced by Anver Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The Anver VB-Series Vacuum Lifter/Rotator is a hoist-based system with a remote power station that lets one person pickup and rotate kegs, barrels, and cylindrical objects from the side for stacking and loading operations. Featuring variable speed control from a creep to 115 FPM, it has two foam vacuum pad attachments to accommodate ribs and moderately uneven surfaces.
Equipped with fully integrated fingertip controls on the handlebar, a vacuum gauge, quick-release, and a check valve, the Anver VB-Series Vacuum Lifter/Rotator has a lightweight aluminum and steel frame assembly. Custom frames and vacuum pad attachments can be developed to meet specific require- ments for handling vessels of varying lengths weighing up to 400 lbs.
The Anver VB-Series Vacuum Lifter/Rotator is priced from $ 5,995.00 (list). Literature and price quotations are available upon request.
