Spark Resistant Industrial Air Hoists Reduce the Threat of Industrial Explosion From Dust or Gases -- WVSN Reports

MANHEIM, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- Industrial explosion is a calamity that can cost millions of dollars for industrial property owners and enormous liability from loss of human life. Perilous volatile industrial environments are a reality in today's industrial workplace that requires special equipment to help eliminate a catastrophic explosion. Recently Harrington Hoists, Inc. rolled out their new AL Series - ATEX certified (Ex) spark resistant and lube free air hoist product line for an on camera demonstration for Industry Visions Industrial News.

"Harrington's AL Series - ATEX certified spark resistant and lube free air hoist features have destined this new product line to lead the field for use in volatile industrial environments," said VP of Business Development, Bret Lussow. "The risks of explosion in unstable industrial environments involve two components, dust and gases. Obviously petrochemical companies and refineries are extremely vulnerable to risk from the smallest spark that can ignite vapors. Other industrial sectors where there is a clear and present danger include bulk bag handling, grain elevators and paint booths of all sizes where even a small spark can cause dust or gas to combust into a conflagration."

"Harrington's new AL Series - ATEX certified spark resistant and lube free air hoist meets the safety challenges of working in some of these hazardous environments," said Lussow. "In fact this hoist meets the European Union ATEX Directive - ll 2GD c T5 llB T100 degrees C which is a stringent European safety standard for spark resistant compliance in industrial hoists. Harrington also complies with special plating on the bottom steel hook and chain that helps to eliminate 'Friction Spark' in the event two steel components would clash during a rigging activity."

Another feature that is important to applications like food processing, pharmaceutical and plastic film manufacturing is that the unit can operate lube free. The hoist has special vanes that do not require oil -- this is especially important in applications like food processing where exposure to lubricants could contaminate their process control. AL Series hoists can also operate with lubrication, if the application permits, which will increase the vane life even further.

Harrington's ATEX certified (Ex) spark resistant and lube free air hoist is a terrific addition to the Harrington Hoists, Inc. family of products. If your process requires spark resistant and / or lube free lifting, it's time you joined the revolution!

Harrington Hoists, Inc. is one of America's oldest manufacturing companies with plants in Manheim, PA, Elizabethtown, PA, and Corona, CA. Harrington is a KITO Group company and also distributes products in South America under the KITO brand.
