At first glance, the Kenco Pipe Lift’s construction shows what appears to be a simplistic scissor-style friction lift. But as you delve in further, you can see how it has been meticulously designed with extra consideration given to its performance in real world operations.
Other inferior pipe tong’s narrow profile require locating the exact center to maintain control of the pipe during the lift. However, the Kenco Pipe Lift is built with an extra wide profile which takes 100 percent of the guesswork out of determining the exact center. There are no hydraulics needed as the entire functioning of the pipe lifter is mechanically driven.
The pipe is lifted easily and safely, each and every time. The operator remains in full control of the movement of laying the pipe itself, saving both time and money on the jobsite.
The Kenco Pipe Lift is also completely hands-free. Our internal actuator system allows for each pipe pick to occur one right after another. The initial cycle will grab a single pipe and a second cycle locks the tongs open for a second pick. No additional workers are needed which improves both safety and efficiency.
Each Kenco Pipe Lift model has a range of pipe diameters it can lift. Whether it be removal or installation of ductile iron, steel, pvc or even concrete pipe, we have a lifter for it. We also offer an optional rubber lining (use to help protect the pipe. Our specially designed pipe handling devices have grip ranges from 4” to 48” so there is likely an off-the-shelf model that will work for the job.
Kenco also certifies each and every pipe lift that leaves our facility. See more about that HERE. The safety and efficiency of a Kenco Pipe Lift is miles above any competitor on the market.
