Why do you recommend suspension options for my THUNDERBOLT Equipment when I can use the overhead crane?

Experienced mill maintenance managers will know that the one of the most heavily utilised pieces of equipment during a plant shutdown is the overhead crane. The overhead crane is also normally designed to lift and transport pieces of equipment with weights far exceeding that of a THUNDERBOLT Hammer and as such it is a slow and inefficient means of supporting THUNDERBOLT Hammers during liner bolt knock removal.

For these reasons, the overhead crane should not be used for suspending the THUNDERBOLT Hammers during a reline. To ensure maximum efficiency of liner bolt knock in, RME recommends that THUNDERBOLT Hammers be supplied with their own THUNDERBOLT Suspension option.
