Operation of Chain Hoists
Chain hoists operate through the use of a dual pulley system connected by a chain. The system provides a mechanical advantage based on the principles that operate with a pulley. Load is inhibited from slipping past the ratchet. The chain can break, but not in the manner in which a steel cable can break at a dangerous high velocity.
Manual chain hoists are commonly used for lifting lesser weight items – for example, engine blocks. Electrical chain hoists are applied often for heavy and difficult loading scenarios. Certain types of heavy loads are best handled by hydraulic and compressed air chain hoists – often times utilizing jibs and cranes.
You can find a Tractel chain hoist in a range of sizes from small to large. These hoists are used in various venues, including construction sites, auto repair shops, and bridge and jib cranes. Due to its efficiency, it is able to pay back the investment many times over.
