FLAT-FORM LIFTING BAGS

Flat-Form Lifting Bags lifitng a truck

Flat-Form, high-pressure, heavy lifting bags are thin profile and simple to use. Surface nodes interlock for superior gripping power when multiple bags are stacked. Four standard sizes are available with lift capacity up to 74 tons. Sava lifting bags are compatible with any other manufacturer's lift bag systems; just specify brand when ordering.

*Note: The stable, flat-form shape is achieved for any load up to the optimum load rating weight. For heavier loads, Flat-Form bags virtually become conventional bags since they cannot achieve the necessary lift height to flatten out. Use the graph below to determine estimated lift height performance for loads greater than optimum.

LOAD PLATES

Load Plates

556309 Load Plate
16" x 16" x 5/8" Rigid rubber coated 1/4" aluminum plate spreads out concentrated loads so lifting bags stay flat (10 Lbs.).

556310 Load Plate
20 " x 20" x 5/8" Rigid rubber coated 1/4" aluminum plate spreads out concentrated loads so lifting bags stay flat (16 Lbs.).

556311 Load Plate
26 " x 26" x 5/8" Rigid rubber coated 1/4" aluminum plate spreads out concentrated loads so lifting bags stay flat (32 Lbs.).

Load plates can be used on uneven ground or when the load is smaller than the bag. Keeps the bag flat preventing lift height loss due to concentrated load depression. Works well when lifting heavy framing members, pipe sections, anything cylindrical or narrow.

 

INFLATION ACCESSORIES


Sava inflation accessories have been designed for precision variable control, high reliability and long life. Use only Sava controllers for maximum safety and performance.

Industrial quality, sold rubber composite hoses and nickel plated couplers work exceptionally well in all temperatures and weather conditions from the arctic, to the desert, to the tropics.

All Sava controllers come with built-in pressure relief valves.

 

DOUBLE CONSOLE CONTROLLER

Double Controller

Part# 548275 VARIABLE CONTROL DUAL CONSOLE
Dual Deadman controller is preferred for precise inflation and deflation control. All metal, Sava variable control, deadman, console controllers are the most popular choice for first responders and rescue teams, recovery and vehicle (or structure) stabilization operations. The Deadman controller can accurately control one or two bags from a single regulated air source.

Built-in safety relief valves prevent lifting bag over pressurization. Toggles are pressure sensitive; open a little for slight flow, open more for more flow. Couplers are color coded for use with colored hoses for easier identification during lifting. 

Color Code Standard Colors:
Yellow = Supply hose
Blue = Primary inflation distribution hose (for single controllers)
Red = Secondary inflation distribution hose (for dual controllers)
Green = Third inflation distribution hose (for triple controllers)

Black = additional hose for other applications (MSHA approved for mine use).

 

TRIPLE CONSOLE CONTROLLER
Triple Console Controller

Part# 548276 VARIABLE CONTROL TRIPLE CONSOLE
Triple Deadman controller is preferred for precise inflation and deflation control. All metal, Sava variable control, deadman, console controllers are the most popular choice for first responders and rescue teams, recovery and vehicle (or structure) stabilization operations. The Deadman controller can accurately control one, two or three bags from a single regulated air source.

Built-in safety relief valves prevent lifting bag over pressurization. Toggles are pressure sensitive; open a little for slight flow, open more for more flow. Couplers are color coded for use with colored hoses for easier identification during lifting. 

Color Code Standard Colors:
Yellow = Supply hose
Blue = Primary inflation distribution hose (for single controllers)
Red = Secondary inflation distribution hose (for dual controllers)
Green = Third inflation distribution hose (for triple controllers)

Black = additional hose for other applications (MSHA approved for mine use).

*Hose with safety couplers, in-line shut-off valve and safety relief valve.
Normally the yellow supply hose would not need a relief valve or shut-off valve. It is only offered for special applications.
All distribution hoses are offered with or without relief valves and shut-off based on personal preference.
Shut-off relief valve

 

 

INLINE SAFETY DEVICES
Inline shut-off and relief valves are removable and can be installed on either end of the hose or left on the lift bag.

Hand-Held Single ControllerHand-Held Double Controller

539060, SINGLE CONTROLLER
539061, DOUBLE CONTROLLER
Hand-Held Single and Double controllers are very solid and work well in environments where one handed operation is preferred. Inflation buttons feature full on-off or deflate position. Overpressure safety relief valves built-in with separate gauges for each bag to operate independently but with one air supply source. Controllers will operate with compressor, SCBA breathing air source or even truck brake air source. Machined aluminum body is rugged and lightweight. Rubber handle with surface nodes work will in cold temperatures, hot temperatures and has a positive grip when wet or icy.

 

76681, SINGLE FITTING CONTROLLER
76682, DOUBLE FITTING CONTROLLER

TESTING ACCESSORIES

EL-1F, HYDROSTATIC TEST PUMP
For testing inflatable products. Periodical testing with water under high pressure measures performance and can safely reveal damage or wear before an explosive failure can occur with air pressure.

Pump includes four (5ft.) hoses and connectors to test Sava bags and adapters to test most other lifting bags.

Documentation and forms are supplied for creating a comprehensive program to track and record each bag tested throughout its history from purchase to equipment retirement.
