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.
The experts in our engineering department develop these special hoists according to individual requirements, specifications, quality standards and national regulations. The projects are implemented economically, effectively and in constant high quality. This includes compliance with all global regulations and standards, implementation of all international certifications and customer-specific documentation.
The LNG hoists from STAHL CraneSystems are offered in four safety levels. The LNG wire rope hoists from STAHL CraneSystems in level 3B are currently regarded as the safest explosion-proof hoists available on the market.
