This range of Ex rated handling equipment includes hydraulically operated hoists and monorail hoists for safe operation in hazardous and explosion endangered areas. They offer an option when compressed air supplies are not available, but hydraulic lines currently exist. With swl capacities up to 100t, they operate at intake pressures from 100 to 180 bar, with oil or HFC flame resistant pressure fluids. All units feature encapsulated gear motors with low noise emissions, integrated overload protection and variable speed control for all load lift, lower and rail transfer operations. Hoists up to 20t carrying capacity also incorporate controlled load-lowering in the event of oil supply failure. All hoists provide a three metre lift height and are equipped with two metre pendant controllers. The monorail hoists can be supplied in five load ratings from 20 to 10t, with standard hoists available in eight ratings from 3 to 100t. Special paint finishes can also be specified, together with increased spark protection for higher Ex rated operation.
