Materials handling specialist J D Neuhaus (JDN) has introduced a range of hoist solutions for working environments that demand high levels of cleanliness and hygiene. Food, beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, among others, must all conform to strict regulations when it comes to clean working practices.
JDN has developed a nickel-plated hoist designed for clean operating environments. This hygienic hoist can be configured in the standard Profi TI series for 0.5 to 1 tonne capacity, or as a big bag handling unit and low headroom trolley hoist for 1 tonne loads. All have outer surfaces plated in 25 micron thick nickel.
Where Profi hoists are required to run on overhead rails, manually operated and motorised trolleys can be provided with nickel-plating features on the gearbox, motor and body.
JDN Profi hoists offer a number of standard features for applications such as commercial kitchens. These include high corrosion and humidity resistance, ease-of-cleaning and suitability for lube-free operation. JDN also has stainless steel options.
The nickel-plated big bag handling air hoist is part of a range of products designed for applications that need to process powdered, granulated or other free-flowing materials which need regular, high volume top-ups to maintain production. These hoists are suitable for handling food products such as salt, sugar, flour and starch, as well as chemicals and pharmaceuticals. All these air operated units offer explosion protection for safe operation when used in potentially explosive environments.
Big bag handling air hoists are available to carry 1,100 and 2,200 kilogrammes at 6 bar air pressure. They can be supplied in two configurations of single or twin lift load hooks. The single hook unit is designed for operation with a standard cruciform lifting beam.
