Double Clevis Features
When freedom of movement in two axes is required, a double clevis jack may be specified. A double-clevis jack incorporates a special clevis end bottom pipe and a standard clevis end on the lifting screw. Machine screw and ball screw jacks from 1 ton to 50-ton load capacities can be supplied with double clevis mounts. Applications like angle tilt adjustments, moving a load through an arc, tracking antennas, hinged doors or air dampers etc is more common.
- It is used only direct compression or tension loads, thereby eliminating side load conditions.
- Double clevis jacks are always made from upright jacks.
- Double-clevis jacks are limited both in capacity and maximum length. Since this structure tends to weaken it as a column by creating eccentric loads on the screw. This eccentricity is more likely to increase with greater distance and higher loading.
