Stertil-Koni has introduced Diamond Lift - a new, heavy duty, high-pressure telescopic piston lift available in either a two or three piston configuration with a total lifting capacity of 64,000 pounds and 96,000 pounds respectively.
Notably, the design of the lift’s telescopic pistons protects all the critical seals from potential damage by debris. Further, its piston rods are hard-chrome plated for maximum protection against corrosion and wear.
The lift is certified to ANSI/ALI ALCTV current edition by ETL/Intertek.
The Diamond Lift uses biodegradable oil and the upper portion of the steel containment is hot galvanized, which provides corrosion resistance at floor level and ensures proper interlock with the foundation, say officials at Stertil-Koni, the leader in heavy duty truck lifts and bus lifts (www.stertil-koni.com).
In addition, the containments are coated internally and externally with DiamondGuard, which safeguards against corrosion and electrolysis, plus prohibits hazardous shop fluids from entering the environment.
The lift is one of the few piston-style inground lifts designed to allow the lift to be lowered into a mechanically locked situation without placing undesired pressures on the piston seals, the officials note. The gravity engaged locking assembly is easy to service and can be accessed from floor level.
Rather than utilizing traditional rollers, which may need lubrication, the Diamond Lift’s moveable lifting unit and aluminum trench covering system travel on ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene slides atop a stainless steel guide which is maintenance free.
Ultrasonic sensors provide real time synchronization for ultimate safety. All power units and control components are located in the above ground console for easy troubleshooting and maintenance.
Lift manufacturer Stertil-Koni recommends ALI lift certification, scheduled servicing and annual inspection for maximum performance and safety.
