PIPE RACK JACK® (PRJ)

EASY PIPE LIFTING TOOL

PRJ Australia is a privately owned Australian business, established in 2012, bringing new technology pipe lifting and supporting solutions to the Australian market.

Lifting pipe lines for routine inspection and maintenance is one of the more hazardous tasks that will be performed during the life of an operating plant. As plants age, corrosion and general wear and tear begin to effect the integrity of pipes and supports. This then requires careful management and careful pipe movement to rectify the issues identified without creating further safety hazards.

PRJ Australia have a number of products that solve this maintenance management dilemma, for both lifting, supporting and retaining pipes.

PIPE RACK JACK® (PRJ)

Pipe Rack Jack is a patented, revolutionary pipe lifting tool. It’s a simple, safe and highly cost effective unit serving the pipe fitting industry. Designed to minimise crane use and scaffold during pipe repair and inspection. It lifts pipes in a precise and

B&R Engineering Belgium developed this unit to minimize the use of cranes and load bearing scaffolding. Lifting pipes in pipe racks by means of the Pipe Rack Jack is simple and safe. It can be mounted by two tradesmen on the bottom flange of the beam that is supporting the pipe and then using the jacking screw to jack the pipe off the support in a controlled manner.

Inspecting pipes, replacing or refurbishing supports can be done in minutes once the Pipe Rack Jack is set up. Carrying out the same job using cranes or chain blocks hanging on support scaffolding may take 4 – 6 hours. This solution offers unparalleled safety and time saving. The unit pays for itself in 5 or 6 lifts.

There are solutions available for complicated or encased beam sections, please contact us for assistance.

Clamped Pipe Guide System

Pipe supports and guides are typically bolted or welded to the supporting structure. These simple cost effective clamps eliminate the need for hot work and power tools, when repairing or replacing pipe guides or supports.

Backup Wrench for Bolted Systems

The Lokrite Backup Wrench system has been designed to eliminate safety hazards when working with applied torque applications. These wrenches create a “Hands Free”, “Pinch Point Free” work zone when applying torque to bolted connections.

Typical advantages of this system are;

  • All products are based on safely holding backup for applied torque.
  • An Interlocking system can be used in almost any configuration.
  • Custom fabrication can be arranged for specialty applications.
  • Ideal for areas that require non-sparking torque applications.
  • Can be used in tight quarters, and cause less paint damage than standard style hammer wrenches when used as a backup.
  • A Lanyard system can be installed to prevent dropped objects.
  • Units hold themselves in place with magnets, no hands required to hold backup in place, no hammer needed to remove the system.
  • Big V for insulated pipes (Custom)
  • Caddy
  • Caddy for easy transportation
  • Central support for new construction
  • pipe
  • Rubber lining for protection
  • Stainless steel inlay for stainless steel pipes

Accessories

Central Support

The Central Support allows the Pipe Rack Jack to be fixed to the beam so that it is possible to load the jacking spindles independently.

Applications:

  • Lining up and welding new pipes sections.
  • Removing damaged pipe sections and welding in new pipe section.

Restriction:

  • To avoid damaging the beam profile it’s important that the load difference between spindles is not too great.
  • See folder (click here) for the maximum allowable load difference in relation to the thickness of the vertical flange of the profile.
