Air operated hoists provide the safe solution


The J D Neuhaus Profi TI range of air operated hoists incorporate many years of design and development, and have successfully proved their versatility and reliability following installations within a wide range of light, medium and heavy duty industrial workplaces; they have been engineered for extremes and can be safely operated even where hazardous working environments exist.

Their compressed air supply, utilised for both power and control functions, does not initiate sparks, so provides an unbeatable advantage in potentially explosive atmospheres. Standard versions of JDN hoists and crane systems (which utilise Profi TI hoists for lift operations) have the explosion protection/classifications and markings EX II 2 GD IIA T4 / II 3 GD IIB T4.

Increased spark protection can be achieved, to a rating of EX II 2 GD IIB T4, whilst for explosion group IIC, the hoist horizontal movement trolleys incorporate running wheels and travel gearing manufactured in bronze for an impressive EX II 2 GD IIC T4 rating.

The Profi TI hoist range is the workhorse of the industrial and commercial world, providing lift capacities from 250kg up to a full 100 tonnes. The operating air supply can be set at 4 or 6 bar pressure, with a standard load lift height of three metres being provided throughout. Other optional lift height requirements can be specified and accommodated as required.

The easy to use range of Profi TI hoists are 100% duty rated with unlimited duty cycles, so minimising any downtime conditions. Their compact modern design eliminates any protruding control hoses or similar external parts susceptible to damage, emphasising the suitability of the Profi range for even horizontal pulling. These standard hoists are also insensitive to atmospheric dust or humidity and withstand working temperatures ranging from ‑20°C to +70°C.
