Air Powered Hoists & Trollies

Air Powered Hoists & Trollies

The variety of applications for hoists can be derived from the numerous industries and branches where our hoists are deployed. The quality standard of  hoists which is much higher than the applicable norms is achieved amongst others by qualifying in extreme applications, whereby safety and security are of utmost priority.

With its technical innovation Thameside Lifting offer solutions to                                                                                 almost every material handling problem irrespective of the driving                                                                             medium; from air, manual and hydraulic hoists up to complete crane                                                                         installations with explosion resistance.

The following are examples of the wide range of applications of products in standard situations of material handling up to special tailor-made solutions to very specific problems.

Proven in practice: in all places where safety has preference Air Hoists are superior.

As opposed to electrically driven hoists, the compressed air does not produce any sparks which is a major consideration when working in hazardous areas.

  • The unit is resistant to high humidity, vapour or smoke as well as to extreme temperatures from - 20°C up to + 70°C. 
  • The three main components of this compact hoist are the motor with brake, mid section and gear box, all of which are easily accessible and of low maintenance.
  • The instant starting vane motor has its nominal rating at a nominal pressure of 6 bar*. 
  • The asbestos free disc brake is automatically opened when the motor is switched on. 
  • When the motor is switched off or the air supply is interrupted, the brake closes and holds the load safely in the last position.  
  • Parts of the planetary gear are made of tempered or hardened high grade steel and run in a permanent grease lubrication.
  • Chain and hook consist of high quality heat treated steels.
  • The breaking factor is five times the nominal carrying capacity. 
  • The chain is a hoisting chain according to EN 818-7.

ADVANTAGES AS STANDARD:

  • robust construction, minimum headroom
  • 100 % duty rating - less downtime
  • easy operation and little maintenance
  • unlimited switching at continuous working

Air Powered Trollies
Air Powered Trollies

According to capacity or application Air Hoists can be mounted into trolleys or be suspended by their hooks into the trolley load eye.

'Mounted' means that the hoist is rigidly connected with its load eye to the suspension bolt of the trolley.  In case the hoist is suspended by its upper hook to the suspension bolt of the trolley it can be easily detached from the trolley and used for operating in other places.

These Air powered trolleys are available in different versions:

  • Motor Trolley (LM) with air powered motor
  • Reel Chain Trolley (LH) for traversing the trolley by unwinding the endless reel chain
  • Manual Trolley (LN) for pushing or pulling the trolley by hand. 

Standard version  -  up to 2 t with twist-secured hoist. 

Trolleys are suitable for I-beams according to DIN 1025 and beams of similar type. They are designed in accordance with DIN 15018 and correspond to stress group B4, lifting class H2.
