The versatility and performance of the latest Profi TI series air hoists, from J D Neuhaus (JDN), ensures their suitability for a wide range of applications in the process industry, from food, beverage and packaged goods, to chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech.
JDN’s range of Profi TI air hosts is extensive (up to 100 metric ton carrying capacity), but models in the 0.25 to 2 metric ton lift capacity range are proving increasingly popular for process industry applications. A number of infinitely variable speed-control systems (including remote control) help users achieve accurate load positioning. Various different trolleys can also be offered to meet customer demands.
Of particular note is the low-headroom design. When only low headroom is available and standard trolleys do not meet the application’s requirements, JDN low-headroom trolleys are recommended. There are many advantages of using JDN low-headroom trolleys, such as a low-wear patented motor-brake system thanks to fewer components and no additional motor lubrication is required. Users can enjoy a two-step travelling speed and changeable track width options. The trolleys are able to negotiate curves, while longer crossbeams further improve the minimum headroom.
Numerous benefits are provided by Profi TI hoists. For example, these easy-to-operate, lightweight hoists are suitable for use in hazardous areas and are insensitive to dust, vapor, humidity and temperatures ranging from -20 to +70°C. Profi Ti hoists can also perform continuous work, extended duty cycles, provide fail-safe starting conditions and overload protection. Fast lifting and lowering speeds can be achieved, even at full load.
Additional benefits include minimal maintenance. For example, Profi TI hoists house a low-maintenance vane motor, and the chain sprocket in the mid-section runs in dustproof, maintenance-free ball bearings. The planetary gearbox utilizes long-life grease lubrication and all teeth are made of tempered or hardened high-grade steel, while the chain and hook are also made from high-quality tempered steels with a breaking strength of five times the nominal load. These design features highlight JDN’s commitment to safety, which is the company’s top priority.
Ultimately, process industry users get to enjoy robust, quick, silent, oil-free hoist operation. Furthermore, the hoists are purpose-designed to offer the process industry’s most efficient air-consumption rates per meter lift (as low as 0.7m³/min in some applications), helping to reduce TCO (total cost of ownership).
About J D Neuhaus
With over 200 employees across the group, J D Neuhaus manufactures pneumatically and hydraulically-operated hoists and crane systems up to 115 metric ton capacity from its state-of-the-art facility in Witten, Germany. This globally unique specialization means that J D Neuhaus has set the quality standard for the market, a move that has seen the company become the established global leader in its technology field with customers in more than 90 countries worldwide.
Resilience and reliability are the key product differentiators, thanks largely to their explosive protection rating which makes them ideal for use even in the most challenging of operating environments. Extreme applications include oil and gas exploration in arctic temperatures as low as -45°C, along with underwater tasks such as ship hull repairs, and plenty of others in demanding sectors like mining, the chemical industry, heavy plant construction and many areas of logistics.
The wide portfolio of services provided by J D Neuhaus includes equipment assembly, inspection, maintenance and general overhaul, along with the supply of customer training courses.
Over 80% of production from the Witten plant is exported, which is why the company has long-established subsidiary companies in France, Great Britain, Singapore and the USA, all of which have helped create a tight-knit global network in collaboration with international partners.
J D Neuhaus has history that can be traced back to 1745, and is now in its seventh generation of family ownership. Visitors to the Hebezeug-Museum (Hoist Museum) in Witten, are able to see for themselves the remarkable history of this progressive company.
