            Industrial sector

            The industrial sector is a dynamic sector. Laws and regulations force manufacturers to adopt increasingly cleaner work methods and better working conditions. Furthermore, the competition is not standing still and efficiency is an absolute must. Merford is pleased to contribute to the progress of this sector. For example with acoustic test rooms for the testing industry, special cabins for the mining industry, or special doors for the water processing industry. Naturally we test all of our products and ensure that they comply with all applicable requirements and standards. We would be pleased to collaborate with you on creating a healthy, safe and efficient work environment in all branches of the industrial sector.

The objects were tested with a falling 7 kg-steel ball thrown from a 2 meter height. After a succesfull completion of the test, the windows and grid meet the requirements of the EN 13852-2: 2004 and EN 13000: 2010 standards for offshore and mobile cranes.

              A subsidiary of Emerson Climate Technologies is located at the foot of the High Fens in the municipality of Welkenraedt in Belgium. Emerson asked Merford to create an acoustic test cell that would enable the company to measure the acoustic power of its compressors in spite of the noise produced by the production hall. The acoustic test cell supplied by Merford consists of two superimposed SKS enclosures and meets this requirement.

              In collaboration with our local agent G.O. Bromsteknik AB, Merford recently designed and supplied a cabin to Uddeholm AB in Sweden. Uddeholm is a manufacturer of high-quality steel that is used to produce tool steel bars. An important requirement was that the project be completed in a short period of time. This was no easy task, given that a rotation mechanism secures the crane to the roof. In addition, the original air conditioning had to be reused and the cabin enlarged where possible.

              Nucor Memphis

              Nucor Bar Mill is a steel production company located in Memphis that distinguishes itself by processing carbon and alloy steels into guardrails, rebar, wires and similar steel products. Each year 9 million tonnes of recycled iron is melted down to produce new products. A few years ago the operators of the Ladle cranes began to experience symptoms related to working in the high temperatures prevailing above the liquid steel. In addition, their visibility was limited due to the deficient design of the cabins and the misting of the glass. Furthermore, the physical load experienced by the operators became too difficult to bear. The limited visibility, the need to continuously look down and the deficient layout of the consoles forced the operators to assume an incorrect work posture, which ultimately led to physical complaints among the operators.
