Mobile Cranes in the Petrochemical Industry
Cranes operating in the petrochemical and refinery industry must withstand tough conditions and a harsh working environment. Two vital considerations for anyone hiring or purchasing a crane for use in the petrochemical industry are 1) long-term reliability and 2) operator safety.
Cranes used at a petrochemical coke pit need to be able to withstand moisture, corrosive fumes, and abrasive dust. The dust and fumes can erode electrical parts and mechanical components, which can cause breakdowns and even create safety issues. Reliable equipment is essential because downtime can affect the entire chain of production and increase costs of maintenance.
The safety of the crane operator and everyone else on site is always of utmost importance. Cranes should feature industry-leading safety standards, ensuring they are suitable for harsh operating conditions.
What are petrochemical industry cranes?
Petrochemical industry cranes are those cranes used in the petrochemical industry and at coker sites. A coker unit refines residual oil, breaking down the sludge to produce valuable petrol, diesel, and oils.
Larger cranes are ideal for the petrochemical industry. The loads being lifted are heavy and need to be lifted in a large radius, making bigger units ideal for the job. Concord’s 440T mobile crane is a very popular crane that has been used across many petrochemical plants, mines and paper mills.
