                              The LNG hoists from STAHL CraneSystems are designed specifically for maintenance work on liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanks. Due to their high-quality components, robust construction, corrosion-resistant finishes and many other features, they are ideally suited for use in coastal regions with demanding climatic conditions. The pumps, which pump the cold liquefied natural gas (–164 °C to –161 °C) in a pipe system, must be lifted out of the approximately 70 metre high tanks into the open for maintenance work up to five times a year. In view of the extreme conditions in the tank, special ropes, which are fastened permanently to the liquefied natural gas pump and therefore spend their lives in the tank, are needed for this. When maintenance work needs to be carried out, these ropes are fastened to the rope drum and hoist with quick fasteners.

                                  Space-saver in small or low halls

                                  The single girder suspension crane requires very little space and runs on the bottom flange of the crane runway, which is mounted on roof beams or directly on the ceiling. The complete width of the hall is thus available. The distance between the load hook and side walls is extremely small in this case. With this type of crane it is possible to connect various suspension cranes with the help of a crane interlock to enable them to pass hoists with or without loads. In this way it is possible to reach any and every point in a combined system. Passing on a spur runway is also possible.
