Storm lock pin operator

Gantry crane systems are mainly used in inland and deep-sea ports to enable fast container handling from ship to land and vice versa.

In order to avoid uncontrolled crane movements during storms or hurricanes, both the crane trolley and the trolley are locked to the hoist by means of safety bolts (storm bolts).

Electric cylinders are used for this linear movement. Since the electric cylinders are mainly used outdoors, mostly in salty sea air atmospheres, RACO offers special corrosion protection packages.
