Advantages of ENDO Air Hoists
Also known as a pneumatic hoist, the ENDO Air Hoist is just one of the many hoists available in the world-class range of products available from ENDO. While it bears many similarities to its electric-powered and manual counterparts, an air hoist has a number of unique features and benefits that make it the preferred choice.
Applications that the ENDO Air Hoist is ideal for:
Where accurate positioning and maneuvering for delicate loads is needed
With the ENDO Air Hoist’s variable speed control, you can position your hoist within centimetres of precisely where you need it. The ENDO Air Hoist also features pressure-sensitive controls, so you can adjust the speed of the hoist by simply altering how much pressure you apply to the button. These same variable speed controls eliminate rough stops and starts, making them ideal for delicate loads.
Where continuous operation is key
Unlike most electric-powered hoists, ENDO Air Hoists are self-cooling. This means that there is no limit on the number of starts or the total runtime of your hoist. This allows for more efficient operation and reduces the cost of delays caused by waiting out cool down periods.
In high-explosive areas
ENDO Air Hoists are more affordable and safer options to use in explosive atmospheres than electric-powered hoists. This is largely due to their pneumatic operation, meaning there is a reduced chance of electrical arcing sparking an explosion — something that is a serious risk with electric-powered hoists that don’t have an explosion-proof failsafe.
Where space is at a premium
While a pneumatic hoist needs to be connected to an air compressor in order to work, the unit can be located anywhere that is out of the way — including outside the building where your air hoist is installed. And with its compact but powerful body, the ENDO Air Host allows for easy handling at all times.
When you need a hoist for special applications
With a range of customisable options and special accessories available for every model in the ENDO Air Hoist range — these units are ideal for anyone who needs to cater for special applications. Some of these include a cleaner accessory, longer chains or cables, extended control tubes, pendant controls, different trolleys, and more.
Suitable for a variety of industries
Thanks to the fact that ENDO Air Hoists are both easily customisable and have lifting capabilities that range from 125 kilograms to 6 tonnes, they are suitable for a wide range of industries. Fitted with rotary vane motors in strong yet lightweight aluminium bodies, they can be used in chemical plants, paper mills, construction, oil and gas, engineering, shipping, and more.
