300 ton linear winch type C600
C600 linear winch 300 mTon capacity
The C600 linear winch is build to specification of Bezemer by the Lucker manufacturing company. This winch is particular suitable for rough environment. This environment can be found on landfall locations and beaches. This linear winch is completely self-supporting and driven by a containerized diesel hydraulic power unit.
This hydraulic linear winch is often used for pipe pull operations from the lay barge and also for pull outs from the beach. This winch and its supporting equipment is used by dredging companies, pipe laying companies as well as marine and salvage companies.
General description linear winch
The linear winch consists of two grippers mounted in a frame. The wire rope passes through each gripper. Each gripper is capable of holding the wire rope. The grippers move back and forth (extend and retract) through the actions of four hydraulic main cylinders. The grippers are independently controlled and their movement can be sequenced to either pull-in or payout the wire rope.
The holding action is developed by two wedges inside each gripper. If the wedges are contacting the wire rope when a load is applied to the wire rope, the wedges will clamp onto and hold the wire rope. When one gripper is pulling, the wire rope slips through the wedges of the other gripper.
Four hydraulic wedge cylinders control wedge movement. Extending the wedge cylinders closes the wedges. Retracting the wedge cylinders opens the wedges. Each pair of wedge cylinders is hydraulically connected in parallel to assure equal actuating forces.
Wire rope pull-in is accomplished manually or automatically by the control system. In both the manual and automatic mode, the #1 and #2 gripper wedges maintain in contact with the wire rope at all times.
Wire rope payout can also be accomplished manually or automatically. Since the wedges holding the load cannot be opened, control of the load is always maintained.
