Why APPI: When EHS Solutions LLC was contracted to build a cart capable of lifting 800 lb. barrels of powder, they asked us to provide a clean room hoist to do the heavy lifting.
After an initial review of their requirements, one of our Columbia HD1000-P-15 pneumatic hoists with a strap, rather than wire rope, was specified for use in this clean room application. Working closely with EHS engineers, a 261:1 gear set was chosen to match the performance of the hoist to their customer’s requirements for line pull and line speed.
Its compact size, high efficiency planetary gear reduction and in-the-drum brake combined with virtually no maintenance requirements made this a perfect fit for the drum lifter.
With over 30 years of experience providing clean room hoists to the aerospace, food & beverage manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals industries, it is easy to see why EHS comes back to APPI when they have an application requiring a hoist. With the ability to modify a standard unit, or create a completely custom unit, Columbia clean room hoists can be adapted for use on an overhead crane or trolley, base-mounted, or used with a davit crane.
Please contact us if you would like more information about this particular pneumatic clean room hoist or any of our other products and services.
