The Compressors and Heat Exchangers required for applications in petroleum industry, fertilizer industry, for boilers, etc weigh upto 50 tonnes. The heavy machinery needs to be lifted so that the workers/technicians can work on the lower parts for maintenance. This lifting of heavy machinery and compressors in factories, necessary for maintenance and fitting, and assembly are still done using cranes. There is a considerable margin of risk and error in this process. Although this is currently the preferred way for lifting such heavy machines, there is need to opt for an easier lifting method. Our project focus is on designing a hydraulic system – forming a network of hydraulic actuators to effectively lift the desired load. This would include capacity of lifting of each actuator, position of the actuator and other such processes that would enable the system to lift the machine such that its level is maintained after lifting, to avoid any misalignment.
