Pneumatic Wire Rope Winch / Hoists (Lifting and Pulling)
Request quote for a competitive price on one of many models of Air Powered Hoists from various manufacturers.
Pneumatic (Compressed air) operated wire rope hoists and Pneumatic winches that are used for pulling lift hold and tension loads. LiftingSafety’s compressed are steel wire rope pull winches and lifting hoists from premium lifting equipment manufacturers, Yale Ramsey, Pullmaster, Pullmaster and Tractel and more to be added in the near future (we are constantly being approached by other manufacturers to advertise their products online). For Pneumatic steel wire rope winches and Pneumatic lifting hoists the following should be considered when choosing a product to suit your application. Does the customer intend to use the machine for lifting materials or for pulling goods? The Factor of safety for lifting requirements is 5:1 though FOS for pulling is only 3:1 FOS and therefore it is dangerous to us a pulling winches cannot be used for lifting applications. What lifting or pulling capacity is needed? For pulling application the rated load is known as the capacity and for lifting application the Pneumatic wire rope hoists have a safe working load (SWL). Compressed air wire rope Lifting hoists are rated at a maximum lifting capacity (SWL) regardless of whether all the rope spooled on or fully discharged off the drum whereas Pneumatic pulling winches will have a different capacity dependant on the layer of wire rope is on the drum.
Tractel "TU32P" Pneumatic Tirfor, Compressed Air Lifting and Pulling Machine with Infinite Height Of Lift - 3200kg
The powered models of the TIRFOR machines complement the manual units for heavy loads, such as operating large work platforms, lifting shuttering, moving machinery, etc. Depending on the application, the working conditions and the power available, powered operation can be electro-hydraulic or pneumatic.
Key Benefits: Saves time and labour, no operator fatigue, continuous operation, increased safety.
Tractel "TU16P" Pneumatic Tirfor, Compressed Air Operation Lifting and Pulling Machine with Infinite Height of Lift-...
The Tirfor® Principle - A Tirfor® has neither wheels nor gears. Two jaws alternately pull the wire rope and the load in the required direction, just like pulling on a rope with both hands. The jaws are self clamping, proving immediate and gradual safety. The heavier the load , the tighter they clamp. A release mechanism allows the wire rope to be inserted between the jaws.
Features: Constant control of the load during lifting and lowering with accuracy to within one millimetre, when stationary the load is automatically distributed between the two jaw units, overload safety...
Hadef Pneumatic Wire Rope Lifting & Pulling, Winches & Hoists
Yale "RPA" Pneumatic Wire Rope Winch, for Lifting and Pulling Applications - 250 daN or 500 daN
The Yale RPA pneumatic winch has a 100% duty rating with an unlimited number of starts, which makes it very suitable for heavy duty winching applications. Another major feature of the RPA winch is that it is unsusceptible to contamination, humidity or other aggressive mediums while in use outdoors.
Features: Robust rotating piston motor with high starting torque, designed for operating pressures 4 to 6 bar; Spring pressure disc brake incorporated in the motor holds the load secure even in the event of an air failure; Sensitive...
LiftingSafety "Tube Hoist" Low Headroom Wire Rope Lifting Hoist. Options Manual or Air Powered (Pneumatic) - Range from...
Ideal for use in confined spaces because of the low headroom design allowing the lifting wire rope hoist to be used in very tight spaces that conventional lifting equipment can not fit. Just one tube hoist can be a simple solution for replacing several lifting and handling devices to the portability.
Features: Light in weight, alternative speed of lift, automatic fail-safe braking system, 2-speed manual operation for minimal operator effort. Speed governed descent allows smooth, effortless precise lowering. Fast for light loads, slow for heavy loads.
The less length of rope on the drum the greater the capacity though as the drum is spooled with more rope with pulling capacity decreases; the reason being that the rope is getting further away from the centre of the drum (like a cantilever action). Free spooling drums disengage the gears and allow the user to manually pull out the cable off the drum, they can only be fitted to a winch (pulling) as it would be dangerous to use on a hoist (lifting). Length of rope needed - What height of lift or length of pull is needed? Does the customer need a floor or wall mounted machine, we also offer corrosion resistant as galvanized steel or stainless steel?
