Hempel rack systems

Hempel rack systems for automatic pipe transportation

Hempel rack systems consist of two pipe racks placed parallel to each other with a hydraulically driven pipe transport system mounted on the side. Its purpose is to transport the pipe automatically to the next station or conveyor.

Vertical position

The top surface of the hempel rack system is padded to protect the pipe surface/coating. Each hempel is equipped with a counterweight, which keeps the hempel positioned vertically. The hempels are mounted on a moving bar. The bar is moved in forward and reverse direction by means of a hydraulic cylinder.
