Radio remote controls fitted to Konecranes overhead and monorail cranes at Tasmanian brewer J Boag
Radio remote controls fitted to Konecranes overhead and monorail cranes at Tasmanian brewer J Boag & Son are helping the operators lift and position their loads precisely, while also ensuring the safety of the operators.
J Boag employs a Konecranes single-girder CXTS overhead crane with a wire rope hoist in the hop room. The one tonne crane, with a 4.34 metre span, is used for manoeuvring bags containing brewing additives into position over the dissolving tanks. A Konecranes radio-controlled XN electric chain hoist on an XNM monorail is used for lifting a bowl out of a separator, as part of the beer-making process.
