Customer's benefit

Explosive atmospheres can arise in many branches of industry, for example in the extraction of raw materials, in the chemical or petrochemical industry, in food production or also in energy supply. Electrical lifting equipment used in an explosive environment must be designed so that it does not become a source of ignition. GIS electric chain hoists provide protection against dust or gas. This gasproof execution guarantees maximum safety: The entry of gas is avoided through an overpressure in the housing. At a lost of pressure in the housing the power will be cut immediately.
