mageba RESTON-POT LIFT-CONTROL lifting and measuring bearings are based on the RESTON-POT bearing. An integrated electronic sensor enables the force carried by the bearing to be measured directly. The bearing, which also features an integrated needle valve, can also be used – together with an external hydraulic pump – to lift the bridge deck as required.
RESTON-POT LIFT-CONTROL lifting and measuring bearings are used for bridges which might be expected to experience ground settlements, and to satisfy particular demands in building construction. Vertical displacements can be easily and safely compensated using the lifting function of the bearing, saving the need for hydraulic jacks and the insertion and removal of packing plates.
