Recovery railway carriage
Besides development and production of pneumatic lifting bags,
Buitink Technology also advises on the recovery plan itself.
We have an extensive worldwide network of partners and dealers,
active in the recovery industry, that support our activities. It
gives us access to a huge amount of professional experience. Once
we develop a recovery plan we are sure to be able to execute this
In below situation for instance we made a recovery plan with
lifting bags combined with mobile cranes. We recovered a capsized
railroad car, filled with 60 tons of highly explosive liquids.
Balanced support through lifting bags
As initially it seemed that the railway cars were not strong
enough to be lifted and recovered by using cranes we developed an
alternative plan. The railway car is evenly supported during the
recovery process using our lifting bags. Once passing the turn over
point our catchbags will take over the support of the railway car
and restore its normal position.
View of the lifting and turn over process
We hebben een volledig stappenplan ontwikkeld m.b.t. de
verschillende soorten, situering en hoeveelheid hefkussens
gedurende de bergingsoperatie.
Step 1: position 8 x squares + 10 x pancakes
one by one and pressurize to 100mm lift
Step 2: slide in 2 Giants and pressurize.
Step 3 t/m 6: remove 2 squares and replace by
Giant (4 times).
Step 7: lift up until tipping point .
Step 8: catch up with 8 catch bags.
Visualization of the railway car recovery
Additional to the complete engineering, process description and
2D representation of the recovery plan a full 3 D visualization of
the recovery process is produced.
