July 11 - Enerpac has launched a range of high tonnage cylinders (HTC), which the hydraulic tool manufacturer claims offer outstanding durability, longer service life, and greater side load resistance for increased heavy lift capability.

According to Enerpac, the range of cylinders was developed to meet an increasing demand for heavier lifts in harsher environments.

The cylinders feature advanced bearing and sealing technology, with a nitrocaburisation surface treatment for improved load and wear resistance, and corrosion protection.

The range of HTC includes: the HCG-Series, HCR-Series, HCL-Series, and the LPL-Series - with lifting capacity ranging from 50 tons (45.4 tonnes) to 1,000 tons (907.2 tonnes).

Other features of the cylinders include: mechanical securing of the load; side load absorption; certified lifting eyes for safe handling; an overflow port and safety valve; and a collar thread and base mounting holes for securely attached the load.
