The bars in the diagram show the recommended load weights that can be handled by the individual combination of lifting tube diameter and pump. The recommendations are based on appropriate lifting speeds. A light load will be lifted faster than a heavy load. A non porous load (NP), for example a metal sheet, will be lifted faster than a porous load (P), for example a carton.
Do not use the combination of lifting tube diameter and pump for loads heavier than recommended.
An example of how to use the diagram:
A tube lifter FIPALIFT Smart 120 with a pump DT.60 (lifting tube diameter 120 mm, pump size 60 m3/h) is recommended for lifting non porous loads in the range from 10 kg to 65 kg and for porous loads in the range from 3 kg to 25 kg. The combination with a larger tube lifter and a smaller pump is recommended for softer lifting. The selection is also highly dependent on the consistency of the load to be lifted, lifting trials may be required. Please contact our technical sales department.
FIPA will carry out suction trials on your lifting equipment to determine the porosity of the material to be handled.
