JDN targets food industry5 August 2008
JDN air hoists "feature a patented motor brake system which does not require supplementary lubrication," it said. "This prevents the emission of oil droplets in the exhaust air, with further attention also having been paid to ease of cleaning, low maintenance and maximum corrosion resistance."
It added that the products are unaffected by the sort of dusty atmospheres created when handling powder or granulated ingredients, and are equally impervious to washdown or chemical cleaning procedures.
Hoists and trolleys are nickel plated to provide smooth, easy-to-clean surfaces, while stainless steel chains, load sleeves and lift hooks can replace external exposed elements. "A reduction in the number of components has also increased reliability, improved operating economy and reduced routine maintenance," according to JDN.
The JDN range of products currently available for food industry applications include the Profi series hoists and trolleys rated for 250-2,000kg lift operations. Low headroom hoists rated from 500-2,000kg can also be supplied, together with ultra-low monorail hoists covering the 4-16t capacity.
Big bag handling hoists in single hook (1t), and twin hook (2t) variations can also be supplied.
