  • The lifting capacity required
  • Lift (length of chain)
  • Suspension (lug, hook, manual push / pull, geared trolley, motorized trolley)
  • Pendant cable length, radio control
  • Duty cycle (use and percentage of capacity)
  • Hoist speed
  • Trolley speed
  • Beam size
  • Low headroom / normal / underhung

Air Hoist (Chain or Wire Rope)

Air Hoist (Chain or Wire Rope)

Air hoists are designed for applications that require a continuous duty cycle, or infinitely variable control, or when the application is in an explosive environment. They are usually more expensive than electric hoists. The NEC (National Electric Code) for explosion proof control does not apply to air hoists because there is no electricity powering them.

These are some other things to consider while selecting an

  • Hoist speed
  • Lift (length of chain)
  • Suspension (hook, push trolley, motorized trolley
  • Pendant station or pull-cord controlled
  • The application may require the air hoist to have spark resistant features such as stainless steel hooks, stainless steel chain, and bronze trolley wheels
  • Lubricated and unlubricated air hoists
  • Air hose
  • Filters, oiler, regulator

Hand chain hoists are designed for vertical lifting only. Lever hoists are portable and are used by cranking on the lever handle.

These are some of the things to consider while selecting a manual hoist

  • The type required, hand chain or lever handle
  • Capacity in tons
  • Lift (length of chain)
  • Suspension (hook, geared trolley, and motorized trolley)
  • Hand chain length

Trolleys and Beam Clamps

Trolleys and Beam Clamps

Hoist trolleys are used on beams to move the hoist horizontally. They can be operated manually with a push trolley, gear operated with a hand chain, or a motor driven trolley. You can use electricity or air to power motorized trolleys. Beam clamps secure the hoist in a fixed position on an I-beam or WF-beam so that there is an anchor point to attach a hoist. The trolleys and beam clamps are designed to lift the load vertically.

Air Balancers

Air Balancers

Air balancers are limited to handling less than one ton of weight, and they are best for weights between 50 and 500 pounds. Air balancers are lifting and positioning devices that are ergonomic, enabling smoother operation and less strain. The air balancer uses a pneumatic system to move products and allow them to lift, lower, or move short distances. Air balancers are used with workstations and can be equipped with pneumatic, vacuum, mechanical or magnetic grips.

Winches

Winches and Capstans

Winches utilize steel wire rope cable. Capstans utilize special cord rope. The winches can be powered by manual cranking, electric power, hydraulic power or battery power. The winches and capstans come with an automatic brake to help hold the loads.

These are some things to consider:

  • Line capacity
  • Length of cable required, lift or pull
  • Voltage
  • Configurations include foot mount, base mount, and ceiling mount
  • Explosion proof and spark resistant
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Low or high temperatures
  • Outdoor use
