Scrap Handling Overhead Cranes
Most Scrap Handling operations require a 20 ton lift capacity, however we have had experience designing solutions between 10 and 60 tons. The primary considerations in specifying a Scrap Handling system are:
- Tons to be moved
- Cycle time
- Distances moved
- Highest lift required
- Any below-the-hook devices such as magnets or grapples
Whiting has produced a number of products for Scrap handling applications. For specific answers to your questions, please contact our Steel Solutions Team or call 800-861-5744.
Bucket or Grappling Crane
A Bucket-handling Crane or Grapple Crane is used to handle bulk material. These cranes are usually high duty cycle and require a close analysis of the volume or weight to be moved in a given time.
