PRC-300: 31-TON PIPELINE CRADLE (36-48" OD)
LJ’s pipeline cradles, including PRC-300, are used for supporting and rolling pipe at the entrance of pipeline crossings. Using our pipeline cradles reduces the manual work operators would otherwise have to do.
LJ’s PRC-300 safely protects, supports, and guides the pipe from any damages. By using a pipe cradle with heavy-duty polyurethane rollers instead of a pipeline cradle support with the traditional steel rollers, the pressure on the pipe is proportionally distributed and the risks of damaging the pipe coating and egging problems are prevented. This is also due to multiple polyurethane rollers that are spaced equally to support the pipe evenly.
The polyurethane rollers on PRC-300 easily move over the weld seams and do not hang up, which is time-saving and makes the process more efficient. Our PRC-300 also makes the job site run more smoothly, which indirectly affects the overall workflow, and often results in increased productivity and profitability. Moreover, our pipe cradles, including PRC-300, and HDD roller slings are an effective way to move pipe. Finally, our pipeline cradles are designed for pipeline installation projects, where pipes can be kept close to the ground for easier handling during installation.
LJ’s polyurethane wheels on PRC-300 do not deform under the load of the pipe, as the high mechanical strength of the material easily sustains the pressure that is associated with the weight of the pipe. The special damping characteristics of the rollers ensure that the vibrations from the external environment and the frequency are gradually reduced and the system stays in the equilibrium position. PRC-300 is designed for quick disassembly for transit and storage. It comes with a load capacity of 31 tons with a diameter ranging from 36" - 48".
If you are looking for a pipeline cradle with greater load capacity or diameter range, make sure to check out PRC-100 (14-ton capacity), PRC-200 (25-ton capacity), or PRC-400 (50-ton capacity).
