Explosion proof crane systems
31 March 2017
J D Neuhaus, a world leader in air hoists, cranes, trolleys and monorail hoists, is introducing a range of C rail and light crane systems for operation with the company’s established and successful mini air hoist range. Both the C rail/suspension tracks and the light crane systems are rated for use in explosion and hazardous dust-laden areas up to ATEX Zone 2, 22.
Featuring high quality standard elements, the modular C rail systems/suspension tracks make for simple assembly and smooth movement of loads in accordance with individual customer requirements. The units, which are suitable for flexible material transport applications, are purpose-engineered to offer high durability when deployed in challenging environmental conditions.
Similarly, the light crane systems offer easy adaptation to load and operating conditions. Available in four standard profile sizes, design modularity again provides users with the opportunity for light and easy assembly, the result of which is smooth movement of the reinforced crane bridge and optimal space utilisation at low headroom conditions. Air delivery is facilitated via hose trolleys in the crane rail.
To help maximise system life, users can pick from a range of surface protections for the crane rail and trolleys, including coated, zinc-plated or chromated, while stainless steel is available as an option for lighter capacities of 100 and 200kg.
