Improved safety from LC2A hoists

25 October 2018


Ingersoll Rand has updated its LC2A Series line of hoists to improve the safety and reliability of the systems.

The hoists now offer a spark-resistant design, and an emergency stop function that prevents the chain from breaking and causing injury. The line also now offers an all-steel construction, designed to ensure reliable operation and to provide durability even in harsh manufacturing environments, says the company.

The heavy-lift hoists are now available in 1t, 2t, 3t and 6t capacities, with a modular and compact design making the series suitable for installation in tight spaces. The 1t and 2t models offer the option of a stainless steel chain, a common requirement in the chemical industry.

The gear motors are highly efficient and reliable, says Ingersoll Rand, with only two moving parts—making the LC2A almost maintenance-free, even after inactive downtime.

The new hoists are also sold with trolleys in a single trolley-hoist assembly, rather than separate components.
