Anver Corp., Hudson, Mass., has introduced a new, below-the-hook, electric-powered vacuum lifter for removing lead ingots from a kiln, and handling other dense non-ferrous loads. The Anver VPE3 Ingot Lifter features a custom silicone vacuum suction pad designed for the momentary pick-and-place handling of loads up to 600°F.
Ideally suited for removing lead, aluminum, bronze and other non-ferrous ingots from a kiln, this below-the-hook lifter is available in capacities up to 10,000 pounds. Built for safely handling heavy ingots from their top surface, the Anver VP3 Ingot Lifter has an ergonomic handlebar and a detachable remote control. Its VLS-8 Vacuum Loss Sensor ensures that if a vacuum loss or leakage of 10 percent occurs, a loud horn will sound and a flashing bright LED will warn the operator. A check valve and reservoir help maintain vacuum.
