Whether it's on drilling platforms, underground, underwater, in foundries or in arctic temperatures as low as minus 45 degrees Celsius, pneumatic and hydraulic hoists and cranes from JDN perform under the harshest conditions all over the world, untroubled by extreme environmental influences such as heat and cold. The company from Witten in Germany is proving at CeMAT 2016 in Hannover that its "engineered for extremes" slogan applies to cleanliness and hygiene, too.
By combining the advantages of compressed-air drives with the properties of stainless steel, JDN's conceptual study of a compressed-air hoist made from stainless steel (which is also designed for use with food-grade plastics) shows it has its eye firmly set not only on the food and beverages industry, but also on chemicals and pharmaceuticals companies, and medical and aerospace engineering. This clever combination ensures resistance to corrosion and high humidity levels and makes the devices extremely easy to clean and disinfect – all it takes is a high-pressure cleaner. What’s more, the concept of a compressed-air lifting device in stainless steel even opens up applications in clean rooms (in the optical and semiconductor industry), as the waste air is expelled outside and the chain is enclosed in bellows. Not only that, but the hoists are protected against risk of explosion (ATEX) thanks to their compressed-air drives, which makes them suitable for use in areas where combustible fine particles occur.
