Products for Hazardous Environments
Columbus McKinnon’s explosion-proof and spark-resistant air chain and wire rope hoists are ideal for environments with high levels of explosive gas, vapor or dust. Designed to help prevent catastrophic events and keep operators safe, some of the company’s most popular explosion-proof and spark-resistant hoists include the Yale® Cable King and Global King, Shaw-Box® World Series and Budgit air chain hoists. With engineered configurations, these hoists are well suited for offshore platforms, refineries, pipelines and downstream oil and gas processing facilities.
Columbus McKinnon also manufactures low-headroom hoists, including the Zephyr from Chester Hoist, to help overcome the challenges of confined workspaces in offshore applications. We also offer rack and pinion trolley drives and track clamps that keep the trolley secured on the beam and prevent the load from moving due to vessel motion.
