We don’t want to brag, but this custom trailer is a triple threat

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Sure, you can slap a coat of lipstick on any trailer and make it look good. But the real magic comes from within.

In the case of this Valve & Actuator Transfer Cart, it’s the full package. Brains, brawn and beauty. We just love everything about her.

The Brains

Our customer, a multinational energy corporation, needed a special cart to transport and store a valve body and hydraulic actuator on an offshore oil rig in an area without crane access.

We custom designed the cart’s cradle and pedestal to accommodate the customer’s specific valve body and actuator. Both the cradle and pedestal are removable and reversible—able to be mounted on either the front or rear of the cart.

The Brawn

With a payload of 5,000 pounds, the cart features a protective coating on all parts that can stand up to salty air common in offshore environments.

The Beauty

The rigid, 6” x 3” solid bronze wheels are a true stunner, but they’re also designed to prevent sparking from flammable oil. An eye-catching safety yellow coat of paint ensures this beauty won’t get overlooked on the job.
