Lift Tube Assembly
The UniMove’s top swivel, control head, suction feet and all internal metal components are standard in stainless steel. This allows for sustained performance, appearance, and years of reliable operation. The ball bearing supported top swivel allows for 360° effortless rotation. The UniMove’s new RhinoTube™ is highly visible “safety yellow” which is most appropriate for moving equipment in the workplace. The lift tube is a Copolymer resin extruded over hi-tensile steel reinforcing wire. The puncture resistant tube provides up to 1 million flexes. It is highly resistant to all chemicals, making it is excellent for ‘washdown’ areas, and has an operating range of -30° to +240°F.
The UniMove’s patented progressive control valve design provides an effortless “in and out” stroke with fingertip control. The design enables a “neutral” wrist position at all levels of lift. Competitive systems have a stroke which can require a severe rotation of the operator’s wrist at certain levels in order to reach the release position. This repetitive motion can cause wrist discomfort. The UniMove control handle is adjustable to allow for use with many size hands and has a PVC cushion. The Teflon coated valve can’t stick, and each stroke of the control valve is self-wiping and self-cleaning.
Automatic Balance Control
UniMove is the only vacuum lifter with ‘automatic balance control’. It allows the operator to immediately suspend/hover any weight at any level desired, in the total range of ‘Up/Down’ travel, simply by releasing the control handle at the desired level. Competitive units have an adjustment system that only allows a single weight to hang at one, predetermined level. If a different weight product is lifted, it will suspend at a different level, so adjustments have to be reset each time to reach a single desired level.
UniMove is the only vacuum lift tube system with a standard enclosure, with noise levels at 74 dBA, and provides added protection to the most expensive components of the system. It also minimizes accidental employee contact with the hot surface temperatures of the motor and pump. Our high capacity power unit delivers the highest vacuum and air flow levels in the industry.
The UniMove CM500 has a capacity of 140 lbs (non-porous) and 110 lbs (porous). Unimove’s superior, engineered design provides for the most efficient use of available air flow.
