PRC-100: 14-TON PIPELINE CRADLE (12-24" OD)
Our pipeline cradles are used as an effective method for supporting and rolling pipe at the entrance of pipeline crossings installations.
LJ’s cradle safely supports, guides, and protects 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-100 easily move over the weld seams and do not hang up, which is time-saving and makes the process more efficient. The use of high-quality materials within the design results in maximum performance. Furthermore, our pipe cradles, including PRC-100, and HDD roller slings are an effective way to move pipe. Finally, our pipe 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-100 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-100 offers a load capacity of 14 tons with a diameter ranging from 12" - 24".
If you are looking for a pipeline cradle with greater load capacity or diameter range, make sure to check out PRC-200 (25-ton capacity), PRC-300 (31-ton capacity), or PRC-400 (50-ton capacity).
