Flame Proof Wire Rope Hoist

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.


We are the Flame Proof Hoists Manufacturer, Supplier and Exporter who design supreme quality hoists. We strictly adhere to the prescribed IS-3938 code of practice for design, manufacturing, erection & testing. These thrusters perform efficiently in critical situations like (Zona1 areas) Gas groups I, IIA & IIB, as per the prescribed standard of IS 2148.

They are constructed in a process similar to that of the standard ETH type thrust-er but are modified intricately to adhere the IS:2148(2004) requirements. These thrust-er are available in the capacity sizes of 0-1 ton, 1-3 ton, 3-6 ton, 6-10 ton, 10-15 ton, >20 ton.

Design Parts of the Flame Proof Wire Rope Hoist

Rope Drum:

The rope drum is nfg from Seamless pipe ASTM A 106, Grade B and staunch grooves to ensure perfect seating of wire rope.


The frame is designed using plates which strictly adhere to the IS: 2062. The profile of the frames is laser cut. Boring machines are used to provide the seamless finish.

Gears & Pinions

The gears and pinions are of the helical type. Toughened and staunch steel alloys are used to build them. In order to ensure a butter smooth performance, we use apply heat-treatment before teeth cutting.


All the rotating parts are made using heavy duty ball bearings and are grease packed for firmness.


The motors are of the S4 type with 150 starts/hour. They have a Squirrel Cage design which is in adherence to the IS: 2148. The motors come with 40% CDF.

Rope guide

The rope guides are made using the gun metal spark proofs. They guide the rope through the rope slide axis.


The hooks are made using forged steel which according to the IS: 3815. IS: 15560 hooks can also be provided on coustomerdemands.


The hoists and cross traverse are equipped with ACEM disc brakes.

Limit Switch

The hoists are equipped with a roller type limit switch which assists over-hoisting and over-lowering.

Trolley Adjustment

The trolleys are adjustable according to the various I beam sizes [ISMB]. We also offer higher width for flange based on the customer requirements.


The cranes are designed in accordance with IS-807, IS-3177 code of practice for design, manufacturing, erection & testing of structural part of the crane & IS-3177 code of practice for design of overhead traveling crane. In the design of components adequate factor of safety, as per relevant code is allowed, impact, fatigue, wear & stresses concentration factors are taken wherever applicable.


Steel conforming to I.S. 2062 of or equivalent is used in the manufacturing of the main load bearing members..

Material & Workmanship

All material used in the crane are selected from quality material. Adequate factor of safety are used in the design of all parts subjected to stresses and shocks.


The main hoisting L.T. & C.T. are totally enclosed in dust proof construction either TEFC / TESC CLASS ‘F’ 40% CDF insulation of reputed make.


All gear boxes used in the cranes are totally enclosed in dust proof construction. The gears run in all bath & hence, no external lubrication is required. Pinions are of EN-19 & gears are of EN-9 forged/rolled steel & are keyed to carbon steel shaft. Gears & pinions are all precision machined. The shaft rotate on antifriction type ball/roller bearings. Use of totally enclosed gear box though costlier but it is desirable in view of the increased transmission efficiency & longer gear life.


E.H.T./E.M. type brakes are provided in the hoisting. L.T. & C.T. motion these are automatically released when the motor circuit is on & are applied when the motor circuit is off. This is features works as a positive safety device as the brakes automatically comes into operation when the power supply fails.


All moving parts of the cranes are supported on antifriction type ball/roller bearings.


Flexible/Universal/Geared coupling are provided between all gear boxes & motors.


The cranes is provided with necessary lubrication fittings to facilities maintenance.


The cranes are either floor operated or cabin operated as required by client for floor operated crane pendent. Push button station is suspended from one end of bridge at suitable height from the floor level with step down voltage of 110 V.

Power Supply

The crane is suitable for operation of 415 V + 6% volts, 3 Phase, 50 Cycles , A.C. Supply.

Crab Frame

The frame work is of all welded construction, fabricated from rolled steel section & plates. The hoist & cross travel mechanism mounted on this frame.

Hoist Machinery

Hoist mechanism consists of motor, brake, gear box, rope drum & bottom block.

Rope Drum

The drum is of mild steel fabricated construction having right & left hand spiral grooves machined to suit the hoisting ropes. The drum is of such that there is not more than one layer when rope is full wound also length of the drum is such that each lead of drum when hook is its lowest position & one spare grooves for each rope lead when the hook its highest position.

Wire Rope

Wire rope is of best plough steel, fiber core normally in 6x36 construction having tensile strength of 160/175kgs./sq.mm [1570 N/sq. mm]. The wire rope has a factor of safety in accordance with IS-3177 depending on the class of the duty of the crane. The make of wire rope will be Usha Martin.

Bottom Block

The hook is of single plain shank type conforming to I.S. 3815 & made of forged steel or equivalent supported on thrust bearings.

Rope Sheaves

Its are C.I. running on bearing, adequate guards are provided to prevent the rope from leaving the sheaves.

Limit Switches

Limit switches are provided of reputed make to prevent the rope the over lowering & hoisting.

Cross Travel Machinery

Cross travel machinery consists of motor totally enclosed dust proof gear box, brake etc.


The wheel of the trolley & the end carriage shall be forged steel conforming to IS-2707Grill duly spin hardened to 300BHN material. Double flanged L type straight tread type fitted with antifriction bearings for ease of the maintenance.

Bridge Girders

The girders are of plate welded BOX type construction designed to sustain all stresses arising due to vertical lateral forces with impact to which they are subjected. The maximum deflection of the main girder is limited to 1/900th span of live load including the weight of the trolley.

Trolley Track

Suitable square steel section tracks are provided for travel of the trolley. These are welded on the girders.

End Stoppers for Cross Travel Trolley

Steel end stoppers are provided on either side of the bridge to limit the motion of the trolley.


M.S. chequered plate / anti skid platform shall be provided for full length of one side of the bridge girder ( If required by client ).

End Carriages

End carriages are fabricated from rolled steel section/plate with adeaclate diaphragms & stiffeners to give a rigid construction. The girders with gusset plates are set on the end carriages & joined with bolt in rimmed holes wooden / rubber buffers are provided on either side crane and carriages.

Long Travel Mechanism

The driving machinery for the long travel motion is either single motor drive or twine motor drive.

Twin Drive Motor Arrangement

In this case, independent driving units comprising of motor gear box, brake etc. are coupled together & are mounted at either end platform. We are using our helical gear box for L.T. drive arrangement.
