When a load is lifted by a crane, the load is free to tilt and move. It will continue to do so until the centre of gravity is directly under the crane hook. If the centre of gravity of the load is known, the exact angle of tilt can be predicted before the lift. This is critical when planning the lift and working out whether or not the lift will be stable. If the load is unstable because the centre of gravity is not centralised, the integrity of the lift and the safety of nearby personnel is put at risk.
LCM Systems centre of gravity systems both weigh and calculate the centre of gravity of any large structure, including offshore oil rigs, boats, turbines and reactors. A typical system comprises of compression load cells and custom designed software that displays individual load cell readings, the total load and the centre of gravity of the module being weighed. The total number of load cells needed will depend on the number of lifting points and the size of the structure.
Our systems facilitate both safe lifting and transportation, as well as determining the type of crane required and the best position of the lifting points to keep the structure stable during the lift.
