Hydraulic Jacking Systems

Due to lack of space or access, cranes are often not the best method of lifting heavy structures, and in these instances hydraulic jacking systems are often used instead. Typically they are used for the jacking of bridges and modules from construction height to final position. Hydraulic jacks are also the main method of lifting or moving permanent existing structures and buildings to overcome structural problems, undertake repairs or when they need to be relocated.

Monitoring and measuring are critical parts of many jacking projects, as during these operations it is essential that engineers know precisely when to apply or reduce jacking forces and that structures remain structurally safe and are not at risk of collapse. Hydraulic jack monitoring consequently plays a vital role in both short and long term projects to achieve maximum safety and minimum disruption.

LCM Systems have supplied many load cells to heavy lift companies, jacking specialists and private building contractors. By incorporating a load cell into the jacking procedure, real time load measurement data can be provided. This can be used to confirm that the correct jacking force is being applied and also to provide continuous load monitoring to ensure structural integrity is being maintained.
