JDN targets hazardous job sites
26 April 2011
The new JDN general duty Mini series air hoists are available with lift capacities from 125 to 1,000 kg.
All units, rated Ex II 3 GD IIA T4(X), as well as larger capacity JDN handling products with lift capacities up to 115 tonnes, are suitable for lube-free operation with easy maintenance.
They feature sensitive, infinitely variable speed control for precise load positioning, with overload protection as standard, said the company. They are also insensitive to dust, humidity, fumes and other generally poor working conditions and can operate in a temperature range of ‑20 to 70°C.
"equipment is operated by compressed air, or optionally hydraulics, rather than utilising electric power. This ensures a high degree of explosion proof capability when handling hazardous chemicals or when working in otherwise dangerous environments or atmospheres," said a company spokesman
"Lifting equipment is 100% duty cycle rated, thus eliminating downtime, and can be remotely controlled using pendant cable controllers, or wireless hand-held radio operated units," said the spokesman.
