Drum lifting mechanised
ARTICLE
Around ten miles west of Alnwick is Powburn Quarry, belonging to CEMEX. Full 205 litre oil drums, weighing 185kg each, do not now present a manual handling risk at Powburn. The fitting in the roof of the oil store of three fixed channels supporting a travelling lifting beam (which can move side to side, on runners) has provided an ideal solution. The beam extends outside the store. The lifting tackle is fitted with purpose-designed drum-lifting tongs.
