TYPE: Mechanical Lifts - Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors VRCs

MODEL: V-Lift™ Hydraulic Vertical Conveyor

Best suited for single-level material handling, the V-Lift™ Hydraulic Vertical Conveyor is a powerful, cost effective, and space saving solution for all of your industrial lifting needs.

Wildeck’s hydraulic VRC (vertical reciprocating conveyor) integrates a robust hydraulic ram with large 2-½” diameter dual pistons that lead the way in industry-leading technology and design.  

The V-Lift's superior construction delivers a smooth lift and its single cylinder hydraulics eliminates moving hoses, cables and chains.  This all adds up to a smooth installation, reduced maintenance and long lasting service.

The Wildeck V-Lift™ VRC provides:

Value

  • High-end features at a low price point

Versatility

  • Fixed or freestanding “C”, “Z” or 90° loading and unloading configurations

Vigor

  • Heavy-duty construction throughout

System Features Include:

Lifting Capacity:

  • Up to 3,000 lbs.

Lifting Speed:

  • Standard travel speed is 17 fpm.

Loading Configurations:

  •  “C”, “Z” and 90°

Top Lifting Height:

  • 14’

Levels:

  • Access lower level and (1) stop above ground.

Clear Height Requirements:

  • 7 ft. (84”) Clearance above upper level for VRC travel up to 10 ft.
  • 9 ft. (108”) Clearance for travel heights between 10 ft. and 14 ft.

Hydraulic Lifting System:

  • A single cylinder hydraulic system with dual 2 ½” pistons lifts and lowers the carriage
  • The state of the art cylinder design prevents twisting during operation and eliminates moving hoses, cables, chains, and bearings
  • A pressure compensated control valve regulates the flow of hydraulic fluid and insures smooth, steady, and safe lowering speeds

Lift Structure:

  • Guide columns are 6” wide flanged structural steel
  • Optional freestanding structural framing available

Operation & Controls

  • Standard SmartControl™ with AutoSenz® VRC Overload Detection System
  • Protects your product and the lift if a jam occurs
  • Accurate and robust solid-state pressure transducer
  • System diagnostics with audible signals to alert the operator of common fault conditions
  • Recorded and time stamped fault history

Electrical

  • 3 Phase 208/230/460 VAC, (Single-phase option available)
  • Control voltage is 24 VAC
  • Remote mounted NEMA 12 control panel and hydraulic pump motor are pre-wired prior to shipment.
  • Optional “quick-connect” wiring for VRC push-buttons and gate interlocks are available.

Call Stations

  • The main control panel is rated NEMA 12.
  • NEMA 4 call/send stations are included for each level; each has self maintaining pushbuttons and a mushroom head E-Stop

Carriage Specifications:

  • Standard dimension is 6 ft. x 6 ft. cantilevered design
  • Equipped with 42” high safety rails on non-operating sides
  • Equipped with safety chains on operating end(s).

Carriage Options

  • Galvanized diamond-plate side guards
  • Diagonal load bars on operating end(s)
  • Swing gate with latch and status switch
  • Extended height side guard
  • Roof panels

Safety Features: 

  • Mechanical stop ensures positive leveling with the upper deck
  • Overload protection prevents the carriage from lifting if the unit is loaded to more than 120% of rated capacity
  • Decent safety is controlled via velocity fuses
  • Safety signage must be clearly displayed including: “NO RIDERS.”

Safety Guarding: 

  • The ANSI/ASME B20.1 code requires safety gates and 8 ft. high guarding on all accessible sides of the lift.
  • V-Lift™ gates have electrical and mechanical interlocks and can only be opened during VRC loading or unloading.
  • Interlocks prevent the VRC from moving unless the gates are fully closed and they cannot be opened if the carriage is not at the designated level

Paint Finish:

  • Standard color is Wildeck Gray.
  • Optional colors available.
  • Purchased components are painted per vendor standards.
  • Prior to painting, fabricated materials are prepared using a 100% phosphate-free paint pre-treatment process incorporating a non-toxic biodegradable alkaline powder that virtually eliminates the introduction of VOCs into the atmosphere
