TURNKEY SOLUTION FOR SLIP JOINT POLE CONSTRUCTION
by Shane Quigley - 28 September 2011
60 ton hollow ram with fabricated 2m hi-tensile threading rod used to pull together vertical sections of electricity transmission towers.
United Group constructed new steel mono pole power poles which
use slip joints. These are jacked together to a specified force
using hollow-centre rams and threading rods to create a pulling
force. HTC supplied all the hydraulic rams, hose pumps, jacking
stools and threaded rods.
