Electrode Lifter



Electrode Lifter

Winkle electrode lifters are used exclusively within the electric arc furnace operation of a steel mill. These heavy-duty lifters are designed to support the removal and installation of single and multiple column electrode assemblies.

These durable lifters are engineered and manufactured to withstand the high temperatures of the graphite electrodes. Standard features include replaceable telescoping legs; limit switches for optimum leg travel, mill-duty cable reels and necessary electrical controls for safe, efficient handling requirements.

Winkle engineering and production teams provide expert remanufacturing services that include complete inspection, failure analysis and detailed reporting. Our remanufacturing services support any type of electrode lifter and all repairs meet or exceed original equipment manufacturer’s specifications.

All below-the-hook electrode lifters are designed, manufactured and certified in accordance to the latest ASME B30.20 specifications. Let Winkle manufacture or custom engineer an electrode lifter for the maintenance needs of your furnace operation.
