Air Cushion Recovery
McPhie Recovery’s Air Cushion Recovery System is located in our Incident Support Unit ready to mobilize to an accident location within minutes. Our certified operators have an extensive background in recovery and accident cleanup operations. Utilizing large air bags filled with low pressure compressed air allows a safe mechanism to upright loaded articulated trucks, containers, and heavy equipment. This system creates a greater lifting area on loaded, overturned trailers providing the perfect mechanism to handle shock sensitive, hazardous or fragile cargo.
Capable of Lifting & Rolling in excess of 44 tons at 7 psi, low pressure air cushions easily perform up-righting operations in locations not accessible by heavy equipment and assists recovery operations within challenging conditions.
Incident Support Unit
One of McPhie Recovery’s key objectives is to reduce congestion and road closure time for all road users. Our Incident Support Units are designed to provide assistance and support to our heavy recovery units. These vehicles are fully equipped with air cushions, cutting equipment, generators, compressors, chain and stihl saws and full lighting equipment.
These units have proved to be invaluable enabling incidents to be cleared quickly and efficiently and allowing traffic conditions to return to ‘normal’ as soon as possible.
Low Pressure Heavy Lifting Air Bags
For lifting fragile loads, up to 13,000 lbs. each. Used in confined areas or where mechanical lifting is impractical or impossible. Large footprint spreads out the contact area which makes these bags ideal for lifting heavy loads with minimum concentrated load force.
Used when lifting fragile heavy objects or structurally unsound loads. Lightweight and easy to handle bags can also be used as flotation devices or impact cushions.
