J D Neuhaus has a reputation for the supply of safe, reliable, lowmaintenance handling equipment for chemical and other industries with hazardous environments. The major safety factor of the JDN products, including cranes, hoists and winches, is that the equipment is operated by compressed air (or optionally hydraulics), rather than electric power. Lifting equipment is 100% duty cycle rated, thus eliminating downtime, and can be remotely controlled using pendant cable controllers, or wireless hand-held radio operated units.

Equipment safety ratings for use in potentially explosive conditions are Ex II 2 GD IIA T4(X)/II 3 GD IIB T4(X). Increased spark protection, involving a galvanised copper plated finish for the hoist bottom block and load hook assembly, can be supplied to achieve an Ex II 2 GD IIB T4(X) rating.

Increased sparking protection, for operation in explosions group IIC, covers the supply of bronze running wheels, travelling gears and the hand gear mechanisms of trolleys for a rating of Ex II 2 GD IIC T4(X).

All units, including the larger capacity JDN handling products with lift capacities up to 115t, are suitable for lube-free operation with easy maintenance.
