High-speed manual chain hoist series

2nd Quarter 2019 Other technologies

Becker Mining South Africa has recently launched Kito’s new high-speed CB manual chain hoist series.These hoists, which offer swift lifting and lowering speeds for increased productivity, are designed to safely handle rated loads between 2,5 and 50 tons.

“The Kito high-speed CB series is based on Kito’s original automatic high/low-speed clutch technology and is suitable for heavy duty applications, where a load is repeatedly positioned and the empty hook is returned,” explains senior general manager, Rick Jacobs.

“This versatile hoist encompasses a reliable load-sensing magnetic clutch and high performance planetary gear system, which switches automatically from normal operation to seven times the lifting and lowering speeds of conventional hoists, when repositioning an unloaded hook – if the load is up to 10% of the working load limit. A mechanical brake activates instantly and holds the load securely, for greater safety on site.

The load-sensing mechanism of this advanced hoist provides the user with significant time and cost savings, as well as improved worker productivity and reduced operator fatigue. Other key features of these robust hoists include an impact resistant housing and a double pawl with double spring system. Maintenance-free sealed bearings increase reliability and reduce hand chain pull. Heat treated gear and load bearing parts are hardened for dependable performance, minimal maintenance requirements and extended service life.

Highly abrasion resistant, heat treated Kito nickel-plated DIN EN 818-7 load chain grade 100 for high uniform strength is supplied in lengths to suit exact requirements.
