Aerial tube bundle extractors for heat exchangers Mef express HT
Mef express - Aerial tube bundle extractors for heat exchangers "on shore"
MAUS ITALIA proposes its NEW complete range of Mef express aerial extractors for the extraction and insertion of tube bundles on the plant for maintenance operations even at considerable distances from the ground. Years of product evolution have allowed a complete reinterpretation of the design which makes MAUS ITALIA overhead tube bundle extractors today even more lightweight, more flexible and easier to handle.
Mef express main features
The Mef express extractor carefully supports the tube bundle during extraction and insertion and ensures perfect balancing along its longitudinal axis eliminating the risk of damaging the diaphragms or crushing the tubes.
The controls on the machine or on the supplied remote control make the Mef express extremely easy and intuitive to use, guaranteeing the operator control of the extraction sequence.
Long-lasting epicyclic power
Thanks to powerful planetary gearboxes, the aerial Mef express develops a high pulling/thrust force, thus minimising maintenance interventions.
Mef express main optionals
Electronic Overturning Control system
The Mef express can be supplied upon request with the innovative EOC system which allows handling of loads in total safety by inhibiting any incorrect commands that could compromise stability.
The aerial Mef express can be manufactured upon request according to the ATEX directive in an explosion-proof configuration for use in environments with a potentially explosive atmosphere.
It's not afraid of the cold
The aerial Mef express can be supplied upon request in the special version suitable for operating at the lowest of temperatures.
It adapts according to need
MAUS ITALIA can design the aerial Mef express upon request and after technical verification for bundle sizes and weights that differ from the proposed standard product.
Certified for FPSO and offshore platforms
MAUS ITALIA designs and manufactures upon request Mef express NAVY aerial tube bundle extractors - DNVGL type approval - for OFFSHORE applications, Mef fixed NAVY fixed ground versions and Mef mobile NAVY self-propelled tracked versions
Mef express ensure minimum downtime and protection of the tube bundle during extraction
Easy container transport
For sizes beyond the Mef express 2045/75, the lifting ring can be disassembled into 3 parts to allow the extractor to be shipped in standard containers.
Hydraulic balancing system
Two powerful hydraulic pistons allow the extractor to be balanced by modifying, if necessary, the position of the frame with respect to the ring attached to the crane
Bundle supports with manual adjustment
The correct housing of the tube bundle is guaranteed by the support trolleys which, by leaning on the baffles, support it safely without compromising its integrity
Long-lasting epicyclic power
Powerful planetary gearboxes (from 1 to 3, depending upon the pulling force) permit the Mef express to develop a pulling/thrust force suitable for high loads and to minimise maintenance interventions on the transmission components
NEW / PATENTED: Telescopic arms for the thrust and rotation of the tube bundle
Innovative remote-controlled system for rotating the tube bundle which allows safe alignment of the tube bundle with the shell, thus avoiding operator intervention above the machine during the final insertion phase.
EOC: Electronic Overturning Control system
Innovative control system that allows the aerial handling of loads in total safety, inhibiting any incorrect commands that would compromise the stability of the Mef express.
ATEX certification on request
The Mef express tube bundle pullers are available, on request, suitable for use in hazardous areas, complete with an ATEX declaration of conformity covering the whole machine ( motors, electrical system and all machine components ).
