Our turbulence control structure cart supports a thirty-two foot diameter spherical Wind baffle from point A to B, and then raises and lowers the unit so it can link up to the test engine.
At 32,000 lbs, the turbulence control structure dome is a substantial piece of equipment, and Handling Specialty was asked to design a robust carrier capable of suspending the honeycomb shaped orb while including precise movement both on the horizontal and vertical planes.
- 5,000 lb capacity (mounted to hoop), mechanical actuation (via screw jacks mounted to the top of the platform), 184”W x 386.5”L x 27” H (from floor to top of platform) 290” (total height)
- 64” vertical travel, 11” per minute rise rate, total rise time 354 sec
