Vacuum pipe lifter

Anver introduces VPFL Series below-the-hook vacuum lifter.

Hudson, Mass., July 22, 2010—A new, compact below-the-hook vacuum lifter that can be outfitted with interchangeable pad attachments to match specific pipe diameters has being introduced by Anver Corp.

The Anver VPFL Series Vacuum Lifter for pipe handling is a below-the-hook unit that can be equipped with a custom pad attachment featuring a rugged foam pad mounted on a steel plate that is bolted onto an all-welded frame. Designed to lift heavy pipe from the top and prevent damage to the surface, this compact lifter requires only 8 inches headroom and is suitable for onsite and in-plant use stacking and unloading pipe or feeding machinery.

Available with capacities up to 2,000 lbs., the Anver VPFL Series Vacuum Lifter for pipe handling can be powered by compressed air or electricity. Standard features include a control valve with safety lock, high capacity pump, gauges, air filters and a sensor with an audio-visual alarm that activates in the event of a vacuum loss or if leakage of 10 percent occurs.
