Flame Proof Hoist

A flame proof hoist is essentially a normal hoist, the difference being that such hoists are specially build such that they can prevent disasters from occurring. There are many industries that work with sensitive material that can explode under some circumstances (usually by accident).

Detailed Description for Flame Proof Hoist

A brief introduction to Flame proof hoists

A flame proof hoist is essentially a normal hoist, the difference being that such hoists are specially build such that they can prevent disasters from occurring. There are many industries that work with sensitive material that can explode under some circumstances (usually by accident).

·         A flame proof hoist is essentially a normal hoist, the difference being that such hoists are specially build such that they can prevent disasters from occurring.

·         There are many industries that work with sensitive material that can explode under some circumstances (usually by accident). For example there are many substances that explode when the right combination of air and gas is mixed. It goes without saying if an explosion does

·         occur when a hoist is being used as a result of the sensitive material being used, it can cause a lot of damage. Besides which it can also mean the loss of life as well thus making it a fatal incident. But in such factories or locations if the flame proof hoists are used instead, then it can greatly reduce and even prevent any such incidents from occurring.

·         Thus the next someone asks you what is a flame proof hoist you will be in a good position to give a quick reply.

 

 

 

Using a flame proof hoist for lifting equipments:

Flame proof hoists are well known industrial lifting equipment and can lift heavy equipment.They make use of either wire rope, chain or belt to lift and move heavy equipment.

·         They are usually attached to crane or some other lifting equipment.

·         These hoists can be electric or manual.

·         They may use either chain, fibre for wire rope as a lifting medium.

·         Thus the lifting medium is either a wire rope which is wrapped around a drum or a load chain raised by a pulley with a special profile to engage the chain.

·         It is possible to provide the power by several different means like hydraulics, electrical or air driven motors.

The hoist can be built as one integral package unit which are generally designed as cost effective devices and moderate use. But they can also be built as a custom unit which are generally more durable and perform very well. Either way the flame proof hoists are required to meet the international safety and operational standards.

 

Design structure of a flame proof hoist:

The flame proof hoists are designed in modular construction basis in general.

The main advantage of modular construction being that it greatly simplifies repairs and cuts down the time.

·         In addition to which all the electrical apparatus used in the hoist is carefully
located in a flame proof enclosure thus making it as safe as possible. But that is
not all, the mechanical components are designed such that there is no ferrous
metal to ferrous metal contact.

·         This greatly reduces the changes of generating sparks.

·         Thus the flame proof hoists are generally compact in design, low in weight, and
usually very easy to operate.

 

·         They are also easy to maintain since they are largely modular.

Feature and capacity of a flame proof hoist:

·         The flame proof hoist is just as feature rich as the any other hoist. The list below explains it better:

·         As far as the design is concerned it is compact but at the same time modular. This means it is low in weight and easy to operate and even easy to maintain.

·         The precision flat helical / spur gear units have hardened case gears. Additionally they have high grade surface treatment and permanent oil / grease lubrication.

·         The flame proof wire rope hoist parts are thoroughly scrubbed and painted with two quotes of primer prior to assembly and two more coats of synthetic enamel / automotive paint after testing.

·         The integration of the standard hoists in chassis are set for different applications and hence dictate the trolley type and different types of travelling gear.
The flame proof hoists are also designed and manufactured with a wide range of capacity. For example the capacity can range from 250 kgs. to 20,000 kgs. They are typically able to lift up to 50 mtrs.

 AREA OF USE:

·         Chemical plants

·         Coal mines

·         Heavy water projects

·         Fertilizer companies

·         Petrochemical plants

·         Mineral oil industries

·         Plastic industries

·         Pharmaceutical industries
