The Flygt 6200901 Heavy Pattern Grip Eye is a forged submersible pump lifting accessory constructed of wrought alloy steel. Also known as a chain grip, the Flygt Grip Eye works with 1/2" Flygt galvanized pump lifting chain, and has been tested to a maximum load of 9260 lbs.
The Flygt 6200901 Heavy Pattern Grip Eye can be used to remove any brand of submersible pump from a lift station or pit without the need for confined entry procedures.
To use the Grip Eye to remove a submersible pump from a lift station:
Connect the small eye of the Grip Eye to the end of the electric hoist cable.
Slip the pump lifting chain through the large end of the Grip Eye.
Keeping the pump lifting chain taut, use the electric hoist cable to lower the Grip Eye down the taut chain until it reaches the pump. The Grip Eye will not grab a taut chain.
Slackening the pump lifting chain will allow the Grip Eye to securely grab the pump lifting chain.
Once the Grip Eye has grabbed the pump lifting chain, use the hoist to lift the pump from the pit.
