This is a second generation hoist for use topside and subsea and is the first lever hoist to be accredited by DNV-GL with saltwater immersion verification testing. This means the hoist can be used for a single immersion in salt water for 21 days or multiple immersions (not continuous) for 31 days.
The SS L5 subsea ratchet lever hoist surpasses the necessary International requirements for the UK, EU, AUS, USA & S. Africa. The topside and subsea lever hoist from trusted manufacturer Hacketts comes in a range of working load limits maxing out at 10 tonnes or 10000kg. The size of chain and number of chain falls increases as you go up in lifting capacity. 3 metres height of lift is standard, let us know if you need more. See the table below for all the details.
Incorporating a dual anti locking brake system the load chain on the SS L5 may be adjusted in free-wheeling mode without the brakes locking up. The pawl springs are stainless steel and are internally secured to minimise damage risk. All other internal springs, nyloc nuts and socket head screws are stainless too, including circ. clips for securing the pawls to the stands.
There is sintered/fused material directly on the ratchet gear for added friction. The material incorporates some grooves to allow water to run off more effectively.
In order to be usable under water, this subsea hoist has corrosion protection on the complete brake mechanism. The load chain, Stay bolt and chain stripper also have corrosion protection.
High performance waterproof grease is used throughout to ensure smooth operation and enhance corrosion protection.
An adjustable travelling end stop is a great addition as it can be placed anywhere along the slack load chain. This can be used to stop chain payout when in its rigged location if placed next to the main hoist body.
An overload limiter is available upon request.
