Konecranes CXT Hazardous Environment Hoists
Product Announcement from Konecranes Inc.
The CXT Hazardous Environment hoists utilize the same time proven designs and space saving features that our customer have grown accustomed to with the CXT platform hoists. The hoists utilize components that are rated for your specific safety needs.
Each hoisting unit comes with a cCSAus or ATEX rating certificate. The cCSAus rated hoists are available up to 40 ton capacity and the ATEX rated hoists are available up to 80 ton capacity. Konecranes' CSA rated hoists meet the Class 1, Div 2, Group C and D, and Temperature Class T3 environmental requirements.
The motors are designed for crane use and are totally enclosed and fan cooled. They use PTC switches that are suitable for Hazardous Environments. These hoists come with electrical enclosures, overload switches, pushbuttons, and limit switches that are also rated for Hazardous Environment use. All mechanical parts have been designed to reduce the risk of sparks and ignition in explosive atmospheres during normal operation.
These hoists are available as low headroom (up to 10 tons), normal headroom (up to 40 tons), and double girder hoists (up to 80 tons).
