In oil and gas applications, reliability and safety are of utmost importance. This industry demands material handling systems which are well engineered and can withstand extreme temperatures, high pressures, corrosion and erosion over a long period of time. As the cranes need to operate in a highly inflammable environment such as, petroleum plants, offshore oil rigs, refineries, paint and chemical plants, petrochemical and explosives factories, etc., the prime condition is that they should be able to operate safely. Using just a flameproof motor for the handling system is not adequate. Highest care must be taken to prevent sparking at all friction points. This demands special technology and use of specialized materials for construction and different types of enclosures for them.
ElectroMech, in association with STAHL CraneSystems offers Explosion Protected Hoists and Cranes up to 100MT capacity. Their design is in compliance with ATEX, assuring extreme safety. These hoists and cranes are suitable for hazardous atmosphere for both Gas (Zone 1, Zone 2) & Dust (Zone 21, Zone 22).
