Various Types of Port Gantry Crane
To meet different material handling needs, the port gantry cranes can be with different configurations. According to crane girder number, there are single girder and double girder port gantry cranes used to lift materials with different weights, generally speaking, double girder gantry cranes have larger lifting capacity than that of single girder gantry cranes. When the crane is used for very heavy loads handling, double girder style is usually recommended. Double girder gantry crane can adopt single or double trolley as its lifting mechanism to lift heavy loads, and the trolley can be equipped with different lifting tools for different kinds and shapes of materials handling.
According to crane structure, there are box type and truss type gantry cranes as options; for some outdoor occasions with heavy wind, truss gantry crane will be recommended to use to reduce wind resistance to some degree; for other occasions without special requirements, box-style cranes are usually applied.
According to crane supporting leg shape, there are mainly A type and U-type gantry cranes. For A-type double girder gantry cranes, when there are cantilevers on the crane, then saddles should be set at the same time for the structure needs; as for U-style double girder gantry crane, there is no need to set saddles because of its own design structure. Both the cranes are widely used.
Things Needed to Be Considered While Operating Port Gantry Crane
For material handling, if the material load is unknown, the port gantry crane should not be operated to move it to avoid any risk because the material weight may be heavier than the lifting capacity of the crane. If there are dangerous materials (for example flammable and explosive goods) on the site, the ordinary crane should not be used to lift or transport them without any protections, otherwise, some accidents may happen. If some parts or accessories of the crane are damaged or cannot function well, the crane should not be operated without solving the problems first. Inspection on the crane before use is very important because people can notice the problems with the inspection and then solve it in time.
It is not a small investment in gantry crane especially in heavy duty double girder gantry crane, therefore it is necessary to make the choice very carefully.
