Star Liftket Foodline Electric Hoist

Liftket foodline electric hoist

Based on the Star Liftket electric hoist but with customized changes. The electric hoist has been set up for use within the food industry where handling heavy supplies, moving raw materials, packing and food production accounts for many injuries each year. There is a corrosion proof load chain in stainless steel (AISI 316) which has a safety factor of 6:1. The gearbox uses oil which has been certified for use in the food sector (NSF-H1).

The Star Liftket foodline hoist is available in lifting capacities ranging from 125kg to 2000kg and lifting heights up to 10 metres. 3 metres height of lift comes as standard. The control pendant incorporates a plug and emergency stop function and a 1.5 metre cable.

The low voltage control (24 VAC) hoist has upper and lower limit switches and a motor with thermal protection.

As with all liftket electric hoists there are a few optional extras including various suspensions and trolleys, a choice of chain containers, stainless load hooks and food industry approved oil.

Double load Hook Lifting Systems

Liftket has seen the need for powered lifting hoists for longer loads and has subsequently configured their Star hoist into two systems. Each has twin load hooks which can be set at some distance apart to facilitate the the easier lifting of long loads with greater stability. These are great for handling paper rolls in a paper mill for example, though will be beneficial for many types of longer loads.

This special configuration of the Liftket Star electric hoist incorporates two load chains to facilitate the easier lifting of longer loads. As you can see from the image there is just one electric hoist operating the two load chains with perfect synchronicity. There are two trolleys used in this set up , each one directly above each load hook. The distance between the two load hooks can be anything from 650mm up to the maximum 3000mm. The safe working load for this single hoist, double load chain electric hoist is 2 x 250kg, which is a maximum of 250kg permitted on each hook.

This configuration also has 2 load hooks, however they are powered by two electric chain hoists on their own trolleys. The two hoists and trolleys (1 push & 1 powered) are connected by a special shaft to enable then to operate seamlessly together.

The safe working load lifting capacity for this set up is 2 x 1000kg, that's 1000kg per load hook.
