Durapac Hydraulic: 3,2,1 Bridge Launch
This project was for a bridge launching system where 4 by RSLC-1504 Durapac cylinders were required to jack up the bridge to align to the joining abutment.
- A Durapac split-flow pump PEMS4054 was used to synchronise the jacking of 4 cylinders to ensure correct alignment.
Two Durapac RD-15032 pushing cylinders were used to push the bridge system out over the temporary piers. Again the split-flow pump was used to control the guidance of the bridge section. The Durapac split-flow pump PEMS4054 was also used to correct misalignments during the launching phase.
