Customer's benefit

In the food sector, such as in cheese dairies, butcheries or other food processing companies, particularly high demands are placed on electric chain hoists and crane systems. They are often used in rooms where there are aggressive vapours in the atmosphere due to the immersion baths. In addition, the equipment must be protected against the strong cleaning agents that have to be used because of the increased hygiene requirements.

The electric chain hoist in rust-resistant design is the ideal solution for this work area. All parts in contact with the chain (equipment such as chain wheel, load hook, screws) are made of corrosion-resistant material, the load chain is made of stainless steel. The chain hoist housing has a scratch-resistant KTL coating that provides protection against mechanical stress and has a high UV resistance. For hygienic reasons, only lubricants that are compatible with foodstuffs are used for the gearbox and the load chain.

Due to the design of the chain hoist to protection class IP65, it is dust-tight and protected against jet water as standard. This makes the GPR hoist suitable not only for use in the food industry, but also for applications in waste water treatment plants, pumping stations, outdoor applications in general, but also in the chemical industry, as well as in pharmaceutical plants.
