Gas & oil industry hoists
23 January 2013
For specialised applications such as the oil and gas industry, where safety and reliability are primary requisites, J D Neuhaus can supply hoists with a lift capacity range from 0.25kg up to 100t, to API7K certification.
These are highly durable products, rated explosion proof/spark resistant and powered by compressed air or hydraulics, with corrosion resistant options also available. Customised lifting and control systems can be accommodated with load test certifications available through DNV, ABS, Lloyds and others.
Typical land-based or offshore equipment loads include BOP handling, and FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) vessel mooring/tensioning, together with a wide range of general materials handling requirements on jack-up rigs, semi-submersibles, drill ships etc.
Specialised hoist applications have also been developed for operation in low temperature 'cryogenic' conditions, together with hoists for subsea operation down to levels of 70m.
