Case Study: Ultra Low Headroom Spark Resistant Air Hoist
Problem: The customer had a new production line with very limited headroom. In addition, the environment needed to be spark resistant. Also, the customer needed a fully motorized system because the product prevented the operator from being near the hook due to load size.
Requirement: Pick up to 3,500 pound loads in a spark resistant atmosphere with a headroom of less than 7 inches. It had to be fully motorized.
Solution: An Elephant Ultra Low Headroom Pneumatic Chain Hoist. The custom package included the following:
- Powered hoist
- Motorized Trolley
- Copper plated hook
- Copper plated lower block
- Copper plated Sprocket
- Copper plated load sheave
- Spark resistant latch kit
- Galvanized load chain
- Stainless coiled air hose festooning
Result: TSOC installed an Elephant spark resistant hoist that only took up 5.63 inches. This left the customer with nearly 1-1/2" of spare headroom. They were able to move the product as required under very tight tolerances.
