MEC’s Leak Containment System receives patent

By Lindsey Anderson05 October 2021

MEC Aerial Work Platforms has received United States Patent No. 11,112,060 (the 060 Patent), for its Leak Containment System (LCS). The announcement follows MEC’s earlier award of European Patent No. 3,549,903 for its LCS.

MEC’s Leak Containment System.

Using a system of trays integrated within the machine, LCS is an oil containment system for MEC slab scissor lifts and vertical mast lifts. The leak retention mechanism of LCS does not interfere with other basic functionalities of the device – including deployment of the machine’s pothole protection system, front wheel operations, access to the emergency stop and ground controls and/or operation of the static strap. In addition, the integrated trays are protected from weather elements, jobsite debris and forklift damage.
