Floor Cranes With Spark Resistant Features / Explosion proof.

For Floor cranes to be used in potentially explosive areas / atmospheres such as Zone 1 or 2, SELS can include any anti-sparking features that our customers specify - this will increase its anti-sparking properties and therefore make the crane more suitable for use in a potentially explosive environment.

SELS will not to take the responsibility of supplying our floor cranes described as 'spark proof' as this is ‘too broad’ a term. We believe that total compliance is probably impossible because of the mechanical operation and movement of a floor crane; i.e. we cannot offer a 100% guarantee that no part of the assembly is capable of generating a spark which could ignite a flame.  IE: SELS will supply / manufacture cranes with anti sparking features to our customer’s requirements though will not certified them as sparkproof / explosion proof. Our cranes have been successfully supplied to customers in the offshore Oil and Gas industry in the UK on this basis.

Selby Engineering's opinion of the Stainless Counter Balance
The stainless steel counterbalanced floor crane is ideal when the greater expense over a mild steel version can be justified, such examples may be food production or offshore use, otherwise consider using a standard counterweight crane and you will save a considerable amount of money. The picture shown is purely an example of stainless version of our standard range of workshop floor cranes though we can also produce any feature on other models made from stainless steel. Our conclusion is; if you need stainless then we can provide it!
