Timars Gravity centralizer
The Gravity Centralizer offers a unique method to safely control the handling of cargo that have a centre of gravity offset from the centre of the load due to either incorrectly stowed cargo or through an asymmetric design.
With the Timars Gravity Centralizer the crane operator is able to adjust and set a correct lifting point to ensure the cargo is handled in a safe and correct way. This means a reduced risk of jammed containers in cell guides and collisions due to side way movements from uneven loads. The Centrelizer can operate with any brand of fixed frame 20ft or 40ft container spreaders. The Centralizer has an extremely low tare weight of only 425 kg.
The attachment to the fixed frame spreader is via a 32mm chain, grade 8, The chain is 2976 mm long (the chain is used to provide load centralising) and is supplied with anchor shackle KL-8 M42 40T to each end, connected to 2 x 2-part wire slings to the spreader.
Safety Wheel Blocking system (SWB-system):
The chain wheel has a patent pending integrated safety wheel blocking system that automatically prevents the chain wheel from turning when the main sling/chains are under tension from the load.
