The Robinson Heat Exchanger Hinge

The Robinson Heat Exchanger Hinge

Not just for heat exchangers!

The hinge can be used on chillers, condensers, boilers, pressure vessels, manways, and all other access covers. The Robinson Heat Exchanger Hinge is bolted on for temporary or permanent use. The Robinson Hinge simplifies opening and closing covers in areas where rigging is difficult, and/or areas where cranes and other devices are necessary. There is no longer a need to completely remove, lower, or lay down the cover when performing maintenance. The standard hinge is available for 10" - 70" DIA covers, larger models are also available. After the hinge is installed it will fully support the cover/bonnet, allowing it to swing open like a door saving time and money. Patented
