OVERHEAD WINCH - Somewhat of a theme at the moment, and yet another 12 volt ATV winch is mounted on the overhead walkway beams. This electric unit will lift the sluice gate up and out of its frame to allow access to the test tank when it is drained. Copyright photograph July 20 2018. All rights reserved.

All the parts 

 

 

 

PULLEY WHEELS - These 80mm ball bearing pulley wheels will carry the cables and ropes that lift the sluice gate, to the overhead winch. Copyright photograph July 20 2018. All rights reserved.

GATE TEST FIT 2016 - Richard and Chris get ready to slide the gate into the sluice frame to be sure the clearance tolerances are adequate, while Jamie sets up the cement mixer kindly loaned to us by his family.

CEMENT - The sluice gate is cemented in place with 22 studs located (not fixed) in the wall and floor drilled holes. These will be removed, the holes filled with a strong cement mix, and then reinserted for the cement to cure for a few days - before tightening the securing bolts.

HEAVY STUFF - It takes quite a lot of metal to complete a heavy-duty lifting and lowering mechanism like this. Once the welding was completed for this stage, we simply had to lift it into position. Two men just about coped with a lot of grunting. Copyright photograph July 15 2018. All rights reserved.

LOWERED - The carriage is seen here in the lowered position and you can see that we are using the same winch for the carriage as for the sluice gate lifting pulleys.
