Heavy lifting equipment forms the essential backbone of industries. Hoists are modern heavy lifting equipment used to lift heavy loads vertically, with the help of a flexible wire rope or strong industrial chain to optimize the production operations.
As a hoist operator, here are the parts you must inspect as part of the pre-inspection procedure – before using any chain pulley block.
1. Name plate
First, check if the name plate is securely attached to your chain pulley block. The name plate contains vital information such as rated capacity or allowable load – that must be easy to read for any operator. Discard (or replace) your block if the name plate is disfigured and load-related information is hard to read.
The hooks and latches are the key component of any chain pulley block. Check each hook and latch to see if:
Every chain hook has a recommended rated load depending on its dimension. Replace the chain hook when its dimensions are beyond the maximum permissible limits. For example, here is the rated load capacity and allowable dimension of the hook opening for the Kito M3CB type of chain pulley block:
It’s best to study one’s own heavy lifting requirements before deciding the kind of heavy lifting equipment to purchase. Height of lift, capacity, budget, the environment, and the application are some crucial deciding factors that determine what kind of hoist will be best suited for your operations. A wrong decision about the equipment application in your project can result in premature or excessive maintenance, large-scale execution inefficiencies, and a higher cost of ownership.
To put it in short, an electric chain hoist is a perfect choice for lifting lighter loads. An electric chain hoist features units that are lightweight and compact in size, thus making it fit for a range of diverse operations. Additionally, they are easy for operators to understand and operate. Operations managers must replace the manual lifting process in assembly lines with electric chain hoists. These ensure a true vertical lift. They are also a good solution for lightweight but very high lift applications such as in windmills. Businesses benefit from their less maintenance due to their rust/wear/heat resistant nature.
On the other hand, an electric wire rope hoist suitable to lift the heavier loads. They are also fit for long lift heights and high capacities. If work requires a heavier load to be lifted very fast, choosing an electric wire rope hoist would be the best bet. The equipment also allows ease of interchangeability along with maintenance of parts like motors and limit switches. However, they are not the right choice for a true vertical lift.
KITO Electric chain hoists are sturdy. Their chains are heat-treated to mitigate the effects of wear resistance and to ensure superior surface hardness. Our chains are heat resistant and can bear temperatures up to 300 degrees C. KITO chain hoist can lift the loads on a slant of up to 15 degrees, thus making it possible for operators to lift loads even in slightly awkward positions.
KITO Electric Chain hoists are equipped with the latest inverter technology and offer reliable solutions with their 10 years warranty electromagnetic brakes. For the safety of the operators, these come furnished with a friction clutch as a standard, which is usually not available with electric wire rope hoists.
