Why APPI:  When Arkansas Mill Supply Company in Texarkana was asked to provide a solution for staging a large heat exchanger for service by DOMLAR for their Ashdown Mill paper plant, Braden Fyffe from A.M.S.C. contacted us for assistance.

To meet their needs we provided a Columbia AC electric maintenance winch with a maximum line pull of 30,000 lbs., a 16” diameter vertical lead sheave and two wire rope assemblies.

In use, the winch pulls the heat exchange out for service using one of the wire rope assemblies in a straight line from its working position. When servicing is complete, the second line, which is rigged through the vertical lead sheave to provide a change of direction, is attached to the winch and the heat exchanger is pulled back to its working position.

Please contact us if you would like more information about this maintenance winch or any of our other products and services.
