Before you select the right electric hoist for your application of jib crane , you should know about the types of electric lifting hoist and their applications at first. Different types of electric hosts and their applications: Fix Type Hoist: The most common application of this type of hoist ‘Goods lift’ where it is mounted at the top of the building, and the material is lifted at different floor level. In case of wire rope hoist, crane machine is foot mounted, and in the case of chain hoist, it is top hook mounted. Electric Hoist with Electric Trolley: The Electric Trolley Wire Rope Hoist is a heavy-duty electric equipment applicable for rough environment applications. This Hoist is one of the fastest moving ones. It uses an electric motor for lifting and another electric motor for lateral movement and can carry more than 20 tonnes of load under the monorail beam. Specific power travel hoists can be designed with more massive load-bearing abilities. This Hoist can genuinely deliver the desired performance, especially in steel mills and chemical plants. Double Rail Hoist: The double rail hoist is specifically designed for a singular purpose of supporting Double Girder Cranes. Flame/Explosion Proof Hoist: Chemical plants and oil refineries are common areas of applications where this Hoist is required. Its working ability is similar to a typical hoist and can be electrically operated by virtue of a handheld pendant.
