Do you require lifting equipment for a project that is of high quality designed and manufactured for a long lifetime, less maintenance, and is protected against corrosion?
We have solutions for every kind of operation for onshore and offshore applications. From standard push/ pull & hand geared, rack and pinion, low headroom, ultra-headroom, and many more options. Our products contain both manual and electric-driven solutions. Custom-made drive mechanisms are also available.
Our Corrosion protected lifting equipment is designed for a much longer lifetime and safe operation, especially in offshore environments, where corrosion protection is an important issue. In an ATEX or Explosion hazardous environment, it’s very important that the lifting equipment is free from corrosion so it doesn’t can generate any sparks during operation.
Corrosion Protection Treatments
While other companies use a plating process for explosion-proof with 60-80 μm protective coating, KITO Van Leusden adopts and offers special coating technology for additional surface protection.
Flame Sprayed System options:
• ZincAL corrosion protection system 200µm
• AISI corrosion protection system 240µm
• Bronze non-sparking system 200 µm
Anti-Corrosion Paint Systems
KITO Van Leusden has developed long-lasting, high-quality protection based on the standard environment as certified with ISO 12944 C5I (Industrial areas with high humidity and aggressive atmosphere) and C5M (Maritime and offshore environments with high salinity).
KITO Van Leusden Paint System options:
• Paint system according to ISO 12944: C5-M
• Paint system according to NORSOK M-501
• Custom specific paint system
All our products are supplied with hot-dipped galvanised and stainless-steel fasteners.
ISO 12944 is a globally recognised standard that provides guidelines on the protection of assets from corrosion. It covers the protective paint systems designed for application to abrasive blasted steel, hot dipped galvanised steel, and thermally sprayed zinc steel.
The classification of the environment adopted by KITO Van Leusden is given as per table:
The durability of corrosion protection from KITO Van Leusden is shown as follow:
6 Top Advantages of our Non-Corrosive Treatments
1. Heavy-duty corrosion resistance for the longest possible lifespan
2. Impact-resistant corrosion protection layer of min. 200 μm
3. Reducing maintenance and replacement cost
4. Well-known protection systems in offshore as well as maritime applications
5. Wide range of anti-corrosive coatings for a variety of aggressive environments
6. Can be applied to single units and large quantities of units
Now, let’s take a closer look at the coatings KITO Van Leusden used in the below products…..
ZincAL corrosion protection system 200µm is applied to separate parts of the hoist and trolley by a flame spraying process. The impact-resistant corrosion-protected layer of 200µm, self-closing after damage due to Zinc component Alloy. On top of this system, a customer’s topcoat with a specific colour can always be applied as an option.
AISI corrosion protection system 240µm is being applied in situations where e.q. zinc or paint is not allowed. Other than that, Bronze non-sparking system 200µm which is a 2-layer bronze material applied on hooks and hook blocks to minimise the risk of generating sparks.
Of course, the use of various offshore paint systems is possible when large quantities are required. Especially for energy and offshore applications, the combination of the explosion protection system with all kinds of surface treatment.
Whatever your needs, KITO Van Leusden offers a perfect solution for your requirements.
