It features a centralised pneumatic system providing common sensitive controls for all the lift and traverse movements of the hoists either as individual or paired hoists, or with all four hoist units operating together in common. The four hoists supplied were EH 50 models, each providing a 50t lift capacity.
Two hoists operate in tandem on one common overhead beam providing a collective synchronised lift of up to 100t, with two separate power supplies also provided for individual hoist operation when required.
This handling system operates off a 6 bar mains air pressure and is suitable for work in hazardous areas where there is a potential risk of explosion.
