Schoenbeck launches a NEW
state-of-the-art vacuum pipe lifter with smart safe pipe lift (AoD).

Lifting world safety levels for vacuum pipe lifters higher than ever before, the new ELiTE 5TD/CD2 for PE and steel pipe launches new state-of-the-art environmental and safety elements already praised and welcomed globally.

The ELiTE 5TD/CD2 vacuum pipe lifter closes the lower range of vacuum pipe lifters already manufactured for the oil, water and gas industries in July of this year. Impressive customer feedback, paves the way for larger Schoenbeck lifters to follow suit with this new concept in the very near future.

The ELITE 5TD/CD2 can be equipped with an intermediate spreader bar for longer 18 - 24m PE pipe lengths permitting a stable lift. Due to the light compact design, customers with small sized excavator (30t) or less now take advantage of Schoenbeck’s equipment without having to upgrade their excavator tonnage.

The ELiTE 5TD/CD2 is adaptable for single central, double crane hook lifts and naturally excavator applications.

State-of-the-art safety
The ELiTE models traditionally being acknowledged as one of the safest pipe handler’s available, is now underlined with the introduction of our new innovative smart safe lift system known as the AoD.
AoD is the abbreviation for “Anti object Drop” which now excels your safety levels by minimising human error more than ever before.

So what exactly is AoD?
Basically, AoD is a mechanical/ electrical action, automatically activating once a load has left the ground. An electronic signal is sent to the lifter which shuts down the function of “suction release” (pipe release) until the load is safely completed/ stacked.

The danger of releasing a load during a lift is no longer of concern!
Once the lifter recognises the load is no longer suspended, it re activates all modes for further pipe deployment. Although all ELiTE vacuum pipe lifter commands required twin button, simultaneous actions for safety reasons, this new safety feature really makes a huge plus in pipe lifting. Of course, all standard safety features such as flash lights for both insufficient vacuum and engine power failure accompanied by sirens for the same, are included as with check/ none release valves and a heavy duty magnetic solenoids for ambient temperatures as low as -40°C are all standard features.

The environment will thank you!
Many potential customers stress the importance of vacuum pipe lifting technology being equally of interest in populated urban areas as well as respecting the naturally environment in rural areas. The fundamental requirement and challenge was to achieve the lowest possible sound pressure level, but remain with diesel power.
The ELiTE 5TD/CD2 is powered by a 2 cylinder water cooled diesel engine which has an exceptionally low sound pressure level of only 76dB at 1m (3.2ft). The onboard water cooling system supplied is another huge plus for extremely hot climates. Equipped with a full all-round engine surveillance system for oil and water level/ temperature, an automatic engine cut-off will activate within 3 seconds if necessary. Fuel level, water and oil temperatures are shown via digital meters on the wiring cabinet panel. The vacuum tank/ reservoir provides a volume of 132ltrs, combined with a suitable dry running vane vacuum pump (80m³/ hr) a vacuum suction speed is reached within 1.5 – 2 seconds. For UV radiation protection In some parts of the world, UV protection is underestimated in machinery manufacturing. Schoenbeck has acknowledged this requirement and applied UV protection where possible to ensure long life durability wherever applicable
