Waste handling cranes

Incineration plant cranes

Normally, there are two waste handling cranes above the waste pit, with one serving as a backup. The primary crane undertakes the main operating functions while the other is being serviced.

Key factors in specifying waste handling cranes are the total burning capacity of your incinerators, the layout of the handling area, the type of waste, and the time it takes to receive and process waste. To achieve high efficiency, waste should be mixed thoroughly.

A Konecranes waste crane is designed to meet challenge head-on

More than 10 years ago, Konecranes introduced an integrated rope/cable drum. The vertical power cable for the electro-hydraulic grab is wound onto the rope drum and is driven by the hoisting machinery. With this unique feature, maintenance costs savings are substantial.

Konecranes waste handling cranes also feature deep groves and a pressure roller to prevent over-wrapping. Our patented trolley/machinery assembly distributes equal loadings to all trolley wheels.

Our proprietary load control technologies manage critical crane functions to reduce structural stress, increase efficiency and prolong equipment life. Sway Control minimizes load sway from bridge and trolley motions, reducing collisions between the bucket and the pit walls or hopper, and preventing equipment damage. Sway Control increases operator confidence, reduces training time and allows the crane to operate to its full potential.

Other standard features include Slack Rope Prevention, Shock Load Prevention and Position Monitoring. Learn more about our Smart Features.
