A range of industrial-grade lifting bags and controls has been introduced by Enerpac for lifting, pushing, pressing or moving loads safely and smoothly.

Enerpac offers nine sizes of the low-clearance lifting bags, which use compressed air up to 116psi (8 bar) or water to achieve load capacities ranging from 3.1-67.2 ton (27-656kN).

The lifting bags feature a high-friction surface to provide increased safety for applications in construction, earthmoving, engineering, manufacturing, mining and energy, quarrying, oil and gas, primary production, heavy transport and machinery, marine, maintenance, materials handling and safety sectors.

Enerpac lifting bags, which are Kevlar reinforced and ‘centre target’ marked for optimised safety in use, complement a range of high-pressure (700 bar) hydraulic lifting equipment engineered by Enerpac to pack more lifting power into a smaller space and make cylinder placement simpler and safer.

The lifting bags are offered alongside Enerpac’s system of plastic cribbing blocks and wedges, designed to optimise safety when stabilising heavy loads after they have been lifted.

Features of these lifting bags include: collapsed heights from 28-31mm for easy access under and around loads, with extended heights from 157-541mm; aggressive high-friction surface to prevent bags from slipping – they can be stacked up to two bags high for extended lifting capabilities; non-conducting rubber, which resists oil and most chemicals and has an operating range from 0-90C; 25 ton and larger sizes have integrated Nylon straps and heavy-duty reinforced lugs; industrial interchange air supply to deadman controller; and safety coupler inflation hoses that protect against accidental disconnections.

Tony Brooks, Enerpac’s regional manager, Australia and New Zealand, said that advantages of lifting bags include easy access to restricted spaces, such as those around awkwardly shaped loads or loads in confined spaces, for example.

The bags can also tolerate restricted surface pressure.
