A warehouse that was destroyed by a fire is now up and running again thanks to the installation of several Pelloby overhead beam cranes (also known as overhead cranes).
Kelvion is a leading manufacturer of heat transfer products such as plate heat exchangers, shell and tube heat exchangers, finned-tube heat exchangers, modular cooling towers and refrigeration heat exchangers. In March 2014 around a fifth of their Fareham facility was damaged beyond use in huge blaze.
However, now nearly two years on the factory is fully operational again thanks to largescale reconstruction work including the installation of several overhead beam cranes.
A number of single beam cranes span across adjacent gantry supports which run the length of the building meaning that cranage access is provided to practically every inch of the warehouse. Varying in capacity, these cranes are used to transport the bulky heat transfer products between stations in the building so that further engineering work can be carried out.
Pelloby load turning units are also utilised within the factory to rotate these products as required to provide access for the Kelvion team. Here’s a video of these turning devices in action:
Kelvion Production Manager in Fareham, Ryan Davis, explained that Pelloby were the natural choice of supplier to replace the beam cranes in the warehouse.
“Kelvion have worked with Pelloby for many years, and we were therefore well aware of their product quality. They not only supplied the old beam cranes that were damaged in the fire, but have also produced various monorail and jib cranes for other buildings at our Fareham site.”
