PIPE MODULAR LIFT SYSTEM E l i m i n a t e s T h e H a z a r d s O f S u s p e n d e d Lo a d s !
A revolutionary game changer, the patent-pending Pipe Modular Lift System (PMLS) eliminates the hazards of suspended loads by employing a platform that mechanically raises and lowers heavy cargo via a system of structural elements. It provides a safer and faster method of lifting equipment and materials up and into elevated equipment hatches. In addition, the PMLS has numerous advantages over traditional crane and gantry lift systems. It is proudly engineered, manufactured and load tested in the U.S.A.
Speed, Power & Versatility
Given its freestanding modular design, the capacity and footprint of the PMLS can be configured to best accommodate site requirements. • Lift Speed: 20 inches per minute, twice as fast as strand jack systems! • Lifting Capacities: 400, 800 and 1,200 tons • Vertical travel distance up to and exceeding 50 feet, with exact height customized to match project requirements • Clear span openings configurable to 50 feet or larger • Square, rectangular and round layouts • 5 percent side loading
Minimizes Load Handling & Reduces Risk
The PMLS platform was designed to accept any mobile material handling equipment, such as Engineered Rigging’s Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT), with the cargo in place. This approach eliminates the need for additional equipment and lifts to transfer components from one system to another. Once the PMLS reaches the desired elevation, the mobile material handling equipment transfers the cargo from the platform to the adjoining structure for delivery.
Easy Transport & Rapid Assembly
• Ships in 12 standard ground transportation trailers versus 25 to 30 trailers needed for cranes or gantries • Assembles in 5 shifts, or fewer, compared to 3 to 4 weeks for comparable systems • Requires no wide load or heavy load permits
Safe, Reliable Operation
Unlike traditional lift systems, there are no cable drums or strands that can fail or hydraulics that can leak. The self-locking PMLS provides perfectly synchronized lifting and positive mechanical engagement of the cargo and the platform — 100 percent of the time. • Wind Load: 50 miles per hour (operating) and 120 miles per hour (high winds), which enables work to safely continue despite inclement weather • Computerized Control: sets vertical travel distance based on user input • Power Failsafe: load remains in place on the secured platform until power is restored • Performance is not affected by unbalanced loads The PMLS complies with the applicable sections of the following standards: • AISC Manual of Steel Construction, 9th Ed. and 13th Ed. • ASCE 7-10, Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures • AWS D1.1, Structural Welding Code • ASME NQA-1-2004, Subpart 2.15, Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications • ASME B30, Various Sections • NUREG 0612, Control of Heavy Loads at Nuclear Plants • 29 CFR 1926, OSHA Construction Industry Regulations
The PMLS has dynamic functionality and limitless capabilities. Shown at right is a PMLS and an SPMT upending a vessel weighing up to 1,200 tons. On the front is a photograph of the PMLS lifting materials and equipment 50 feet above the ground to gain access to the building’s only equipment hatch.

SCORPION SYSTEM R i s e s A b ove S p a ce Co n st ra i n t s !
Our engineers leveraged the law of physics and their technical knowledge to design an innovative solution for confined work spaces: the patent-pending Scorpion System. The Scorpion’s frame uses friction to support the crane on a single wall within a building or on an exterior structure to virtually eliminate the typical ground-level footprint required for a crane. A compressive load applied to both sides of the wall maintains positive engagement at all times.
Time & Cost Savings • Installs in a single work shift and relocates quickly as a single unit • Eliminates the need for a pre-installed crane base, counterweights and core-drilling • Requires only minor surface preparation and no structural alterations to the wall or existing components
Patent-Pending Design • Compact design requires wall length of less than 10 feet • The frame extends vertically less than 4 feet from the top of the wall • Independent downriggers accommodate variances in the wall thickness • Custom modifications can be made to meet a site’s specific needs
Powerful Capacity The Scorpion System can be custom-configured to meet a broad spectrum of loading, lifting and handling tasks. • Maximum Overturning Moment of the crane with an FOS ≈ 2 • Maximum Moment: 4,000 pounds at 71 feet • Maximum Winch Capacity: ~8,000 pounds (single-part line) ~16,000 pounds (two-part line)
Safe, Seamless Operation The Scorpion System’s safety features include: • 360-degree load handling capacity • An automated synchronous control system • Wireless controls provide the operator with increased mobility • Detached hydraulic power unit that provides convenient access to power controls • Wall clamping force that is continuously monitored by load cells with digital readout unit
