Bridging the gap between theory and reality

Teck Engineering Inc. provides detailed designs for spreader beams, lifting beams and specialized lifting devices in accordance with codes such as the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code, the British Columbia OHS Regulations, and ASME BTH-1 for below the hook lifting devices.  These designs are completed using finite element analysis (FEA) and materials are selected based on the operating conditions.

Teck provides lift studies, third party lift reviews, and designs for specialized lifting attachments to equipment and components.  We also provide assessments of overhead cranes, modifications and repair procedures and engineering certification of cranes. Some past projects include:

This lifting device was designed to remove and install journals for Alstom coal grinding mills.  The device has several hydraulically actuated “arms” that allow the journal to be re-installed or removed from inside the grinding mill.

 

Teck provided detailed FEA analysis and design of a tailing lug used to lift a stack from horizontal to vertical.  The lifting lug was welded to the shell of the stack using a reinforcing plate to minimize stresses imposed on the stack’s shell.

Teck provided detailed design and FEA analysis for lifting attachment components for a new modular stair tower.  The stair tower was lifted and rotated using mobile cranes and placed in its final location.

Teck designed saddles to support the shell of two sections of a 150 ft stack.  These were used to assemble, transport and lift the stack. All necessary attachment components were designed to complete the lift from a horizontal to a vertical position for final placement.

Lift engineering

Teck provided detailed FEA analysis of lifting trunnions used to lift a 74m long flare stack from horizontal to vertical.  The trunnions were welded to the shell of the stack using a reinforcing plate to minimize stresses imposed on the stack’s shell.

Teck provided detailed FEA analysis of a tailing lug used to lift a 74m long flare stack from horizontal to vertical.  The tailing lug was welded to the shell with a reinforcing plate and stiffeners to minimize stresses imposed on the stack’s shell.

Teck designed a multipurpose lifting beam for a steam turbine generator.  The beam was designed to lift the generator and the turbine skid.  A lift study was provided along with detailed fabrication drawings for the lifting beam.

This project involved design of a lifting and removal device for a high pressure feed water heater manway cover.  This included preparation of detailed engineering drawings, procedures, and engineering certification for the device.

Teck provided detailed design for a c-clamp lifting device to support mining truck boxes during maintenance.  The device attaches to the rear of the truck box to support the box while conducting inspections of the pins for wear.
