Aerial Lifts Industry Information

Aerial Lifts

Aerial lifts are platforms that can be raised and lowered by a hydraulic mechanism. All hydraulic lift systems are used to position people or objects in a way that will give people better access to an area or better access to an object. The words “aerial lift” are usually used in reference to elevated work platforms, which are platforms that can be raised and lowered in order to bring a person nearer to something that would otherwise be out of reach.

Applications of Aerial Lifts

Elevated Work Platforms
Another name for aerial lifts, are used to give municipal technicians access to utility wires; these kinds of aerial lifts are often known as cherry pickers and are usually mounted on specialized vehicles.
Building Construction and Maintenance
Aerial lifts like scissor lifts are used to allow access to light fixtures, HVAC filters, and other raised components.
Indoor Scissor Lifts
Especially useful in theaters and television studios for the placement of lights and the dressing and construction of sets.
In Churches, Concert Halls, and Other Buildings with Very High Ceilings
Aerial lifts can be used to create work platforms for repainting and refurbishing efforts.

Aerial lifts make possible many tasks that would be impossible if stable, movable platforms were not available.

Operation of Hydraulic Lifts

A hydraulic lift is a lift system that is raised and supported by compressed hydraulic fluid. Hydraulic fluid is a substance that, when placed on either side of a piston within a hydraulic cylinder, can cause that piston to move. A hydraulic cylinder consists of:

  • An Outer Cylindrical Casing
  • A Piston
  • Seals
  • Flanges
  • Hydraulic Fluid

The piston is connected to a rod, which is connected to whatever machinery the hydraulic cylinder is intended to move. In the case of aerial lifts and other hydraulic lift configurations, hydraulic cylinder rods are connected to the platforms or the platforms’ load bearing elements. A hydraulic pump changes the hydraulic pressure in the cylinder; when pressure on one side of the piston increases more than the pressure on the piston’s other side, the piston moves toward the area of negative pressure, forcing the connected rod in that direction.

These imbalances of pressure are capable of generating extraordinary force; in the case of lift systems, they can move heavy machinery and the people or equipment it bears.
