Mef express HT - ensure minimum downtime and protection of the tube bundle during extraction

MAUS ITALIA presents, for the extraction and insertion of tube bundles in the plant, a complete new range of Mef express HT aerial tube bundle extractors with dedicated solutions for handling by crane for maintenance at great heights.
Years of evolution of the Mef express product series have allowed the design to be revisited, making the Mef express HT ( High Technology ) aerial tube bundle extractors of today even more lightweight, more exible and easier to handle.

  • For tube bundles up to 125 T weight

Mef express HT main features



Mef express HT - Maus Italia

No damage

The Mef express HT aerial extractor carefully supports the tube bundle during extraction and insertion and ensures perfect balance along its longitudinal axis, eliminating the risk of damaging the baffles or crushing the tubes.

Mef express HT - Maus Italia

Operational simplicity

The controls on the supplied remote control make the Mef express HT extremely simple and intuitive to use, guaranteeing the operator full control of the extraction or insertion sequence.

Mef express HT - Maus Italia

Long-lasting epicyclic power

The use of powerful planetary gearboxes guarantees greater reliability and robustness than chain systems, thus minimising the need for maintenance.

Extraction sequence



Aerial tube bundle extractors Mef express HT Maus Italia




Easy container transport


For sizes from the Mef express HT 2545/75 up, the lifting ring can be disassembled into 3 parts to allow the extractor to be shipped in Open Top containers and help truck transportation.

Mef express HT Maus Italia

Hydraulic balancing system


Two powerful hydraulic pistons allow balancing of the extractor by modifying, if necessary, the position of the frame with respect to the ring attached to the crane.

Mef express HT Maus Italia

Manual adjustment of the bundle supports


Correct support of the tube bundle is guaranteed by the support trolleys which, resting on the diaphragms, support it safely without compromising its integrity.

Mef express HT Maus Italia

Long-lasting epicyclic power


The use of powerful planetary gearboxes (between 1 and 3 according to pulling force) improves reliability and makes possible the increase of pulling force compared to chain systems, thus minimising maintenance of the transmission components.

NEW / PATENTED: Telescopic arms for the thrust and rotation of the tube bundle

Innovative remotely-controlled system for rotating the tube bundle which allows safe alignment the bundle with the shell, avoiding the need for the operator to climb on the Mef express HT during the final insertion phase.

EOC: Electronic Overturning Control system

Innovative control system which allows overhead handling of loads in complete safety by inhibiting any incorrect commands that could compromise the stability of the Mef express HT.
