Hoists deliver 'elevated' performance

13 December 2017

The versatility and performance of the latest Profi TI series air hoists, from J D Neuhaus (JDN), ensures their suitability for a wide range of applications in the process industry.

JDN’s range of Profi TI air hosts is extensive (to 100t carrying capacity), but models in the 0.25 to 2t lift capacity range are said to be proving increasingly popular for process industry applications. A number of infinitely variable speed-control systems (including remote control) help users achieve accurate load positioning. Various trolleys can be offered.

JDN low-headroom trolleys feature a low-wear patented motor-brake system; no additional motor lubrication is required. Users can enjoy a two-step travelling speed and changeable track width options. The trolleys are able to negotiate curves, while longer crossbeams further improve the minimum headroom.

Profi TI hoists are easy-to-operate, lightweight hoists suitable for use in hazardous areas and are insensitive to dust, vapour, humidity and temperatures ranging from -20 to +70°C. They can also perform continuous work, extended duty cycles, provide fail-safe starting conditions and overload protection. Fast lifting and lowering speeds can be achieved, even at full load.

Additional benefits include minimal maintenance. For example, Profi TI hoists house a low-maintenance vane motor, and the chain sprocket in the mid-section runs in dustproof, maintenance-free ball bearings. The planetary gearbox uses long-life grease lubrication and all teeth are made of tempered or hardened high-grade steel, while the chain and hook are also made from high-quality tempered steels with a breaking strength of five times the nominal load. 

Process industry users benefit from robust, quick, silent, oil-free hoist operation. Furthermore, the hoists are purpose-designed to offer very efficient air-consumption rates per metre lift (as low as 0.7m³/min in some applications), helping to reduce TCO.
