HOISTING FACILITIES

Delaware River below Philadelphia

The Chester Tidewater Terminal (See Ref. No. 22, page 40 ) is the only im

portant terminal on the Delaware River below Philadelphia at which heavy-lift

equipment has been provided for public use.

The facilities at this terminal in

clude a gasoline-operated locomotive crane with a 40-foot reach and a capacity

of 15 tons at 12-foot radius and a steam locomotive crane with a 60-foot reach

and a capacity of 40 tons at 12-foot radius.

Many other terminal operators maintain hoisting machinery exclusively for

their own use.

One crane at the Sun Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co. plant has a

maximum lifting capacity of 120 tons, which can be taken at a radius of 60 feet

or 35 feet over the side of the pier. The pivot of this crane is 25 feet from

the stringpiece, and as the crane has a maximum reach of 110 feet, it can reach

85 feet overside. The companies maintaining heavy-lift machinery and the refer

ence numbers under which their terminals and equipment are described are listed

[blocks in formation]

The cranes at the Trenton Marine Terminal (See Ref. No. 19, page 62 ) are

the only hoisting facilities for public use at water front localities above Phila

delphia, Two full portal, traveling gantry cranes are available, each of which

has a capacity of 25 tons at a radius of 15 feet and a maximum reach of 40 feet.

In addition to the gantry cranes, there is a gasoline-operated tractor crane with

a 30-foot boom, which can lift 12 tons at a radius of 12 feet, as well as

cranes with smaller lift capacities.

Companies which maintain cranes and derricks for their own use and the

reference numbers under which the terminals and the hoisting facilities are

Ports below Philadelphia.--Chester is the only locality on the Delaware

River below Philadelphia at which storage warehouses are available. The 9

buildings at the Chester Tidewater Terminal are used for storing paper manu

factures, wood pulp, iron and steel manufactures, cork, and general merchandise.

These buildings are the only water front warehouses, the fireproof warehouse

operated by Headley's Express & Storage Co. being about 2 miles from the ter

minal.

Ports above Philadelphia.--The only public storage warehouses on the Del

aware water front above Philadelphia are those operated by the Trenton Marine

Terminals, Inc., and by the Anchor Warehouse Co. at Trenton. The storage

facilities at the Trenton Marine Terminal consist of the 4 sheds designed for

handling transit cargo. The two buildings of the Anchor Warehouse Co. at

Trenton are 2 miles distant from the Trenton Marine Terminal.

Further details of the warehouse facilities at Chester and Trenton are

given in the following table.
