What is overhead chain hoist?
Chain hoist is used with overhead crane, it is called overhead chain hoist. It is composed of motor, transmission mechanism and sprocket. All Ellsen electric overhead hoists are designed and produced according to advanced national standards. Ellsen provides electric chain hoists with many advantages, such as good appearance, durable, light weight, compact structure, and low noise. Inner gears are through high temperature quenching, the gear is with high intensity, strong tenacity.
The application of overhead crane hoist
Overhead crane hoist is widely used in factory, mine, warehouse, goods yard, store, building etc. For common lifting work, CD type or MD type electric hoist is ok, but for special working condition, like flammable and explosive environment, lifting hoist with special protection function is better. Ellsen provides explosion-proof electrical hoist and electric metallurgic hoist. These electric overhead hoists are equipped with safety protection devices, such as overload limiter, overheat protection, so that all items can perform well in awful working condition.
Why choose Ellsen overhead chain hoists?
Ellsen pays attention to every details of products so that customers can buy high quality electric hoist. Ellsen overhead chain hoist ranks top in the lifting hoist industry, because it has competitive advantages. For example, its shell is made of light aluminum alloy, light but hard. The cooling fin is especially designed to ensure quick heat dissipation. The magnetic force generator is the latest design which is featured for generating magnetic force. It allows instant brake as soon as the electric power is off, thus the braking safety is guaranteed. The limit switch is installed, when the material is overload, the motor can stop automatically.
Consider adding chain hoist to your operation
If you own a business and you find yourself moving heavy items, 500 lbs or more, around to different workstations often, then you already know how important it is to install some kind of hoist or crane. When heavy items need to be moved by hand, there is always a work stoppage while enough able bodied people are accumulated in order to lift something heavy and then there is always a risk of injury or accident. Just one accident, and the ensuing medical bills will more than pay for an overhead chain hoist, and then some. Let’s take a quick look at some other benefits that your company can realize by owning one.
Speed is essential in any business
Whatever product you have to move around your shop or business, if just one person can finish his portion of the repair or fabrication, then easily lift the product with a chain hoist to casually walk to the next station without bothering others from their tasks, that saves money.
There are hoists that come with manual chain operation and those that are electric, even the electric models are quite inexpensive to buy and install for the average business. Hoists can be purchased in many different sizes to accommodate a wide range of weights including multiple tons if need be.
Get several different types of hooks, links, and eyes
There is nothing more frustrating than having the hoist ready to lift a 2,000 lb. object and not have the right hookups to make the job quick and easy. You should have a wide selection of connectors available to make sure that there are no mistakes or accidents when lifting heavy objects.
Hooks come in a huge variety to shapes made to perfectly fit many different types of applications and having the exact right one is important. They should also all come with safety latches as standard equipment, heavy objects can test even the best hooks and eyes.
Don’t over do it either when it comes to capacity
There is an urge to get an overhead chain hoist of huge capacity, but you should keep it within certain parameters and not over do it. Smaller hoists are much more maneuverable and easier to operate without extra help and therefore more rapidly deployed and used. You should, of course, have enough capacity to handle any job you need to do and then some, but don’t over do it.
Safety is also of great concern when dealing with heavy loads and while using a hoist would seem obvious, it’s important that everyone be properly trained in order to stay safe. Just a couple of safety classes per year can help maintain a safe work environment for all and keep the risk of injury to near zero. Just making sure that all loads are securely hooked and double checked can reduce accidents by a huge margin.
If you’re thinking about adding a chain hoist to your business you should visit some similar operations and take a look at how they use their hoist to get an idea of what to buy. There are also highly trained professional sales technicians that can come to your location and make an assessment of your operation to help you decide.
