PAD Mount Transformer Lifting Instructions

 

 

The pad mounted transformer is built on a rigid base. The base allows for lifting the entire transformer at one time.

 

Rods of the appropriate size and strength are to be placed through holes provided in the lifting tabs as shown in Figure 1 above.

 

A crane is required to unload the transformer. The weight of the transformer is shown on the nameplate or outline drawings.

 

As shown in Figure 1, slings are to be slid along the bars as close to the lifting tabs as possible. Failure to position the sling correctly may result in bending and possible breakage of the bar.

 

DANGER

HAZARD OF FALLING EQUIPMENT AND CRUSHING

 

1. Use a crane to unload the transformer, do not unload using a forklift. The transformer is top heavy and may become unbalanced.

 

2. Lifting tabs are not to be used alone with shackles for lifting. Tabs are designed to be used as shown.

 

3. At all times personnel with experience and or knowledge of lifting industrial equipment should be responsible for unloading the transformer.

 

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE PRECAUTIONS MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

 

 

It is important the slings are positioned on the spreader bar to allow clearance for the enclosure. Always handle the transformer in the upright position to prevent damage to the core and coil assembly. Do not tilt the transformer.

 

After the transformer has been off loaded, a crane is preferred to move the transformer into position. When a crane cannot be used the transformer can be skidded or moved on rollers.
