Food grade chain hoists

First Quarter 2020 Other technologies

New to Becker’s range of Kito hoists are food grade electric chain hoists, designed for safe lifting applications in contaminant controlled and corrosive processing environments, where pristine cleanliness is critical. “Kito food grade ER2 series electric chain hoists, with capacities between 0,5 and 2 tons, meet the highest quality, hygiene and safety standards for lifting equipment used in food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing,” says senior general manager, Rick Jacobs.

Food grade lubricants used on the Kito food grade load chain and in the gearbox are NSF H1 compliant for safe use in any facility where incidental contact with products is a concern.

Standard features of the Kito food grade ER2 series include white epoxy paint, stainless steel and nickel-plated hardware, nickel-plated load chain, food grade oil and grease, a fail-safe brake and an extreme duty TEFC fan cooled motor. Other standard features are Grade 80 case hardened chain, an IP55 rating and compliance with stringent global electrical, safety performance and environmental standards. These hoists are available as single speed units or with adjustable 2-speed and dual speed selection. Specially designed accessories for added convenience and enhanced performance consist of stainless steel, fabric and plastic chain containers, as well as protective silicone pendant covers.

Mounting options include hook to hook, motorised trolley, plain trolley or geared trolley for smooth, precise and easy traversing and positioning. A single and dual-speed motorised trolley for improved load control and fixing perpendicular as standard, or parallel to the beam for operation in tight spaces.
