Technical Information

Aluminium Ceramic Coating surface treatment can be worthwhile for the enhanced operation of the ZHV hand chain block dependent on the application. This treatment consists of applying a thin layer of aluminium to the components to increase the hardness to 30GPa (pressure of 3,000kg per mm2). This treatment can reduce friction between parts serving to increase the service life of parts whilst also reducing oxidation and corrosion, and providing a hardened surface with electrical isolation.

  • Chain sprocket and gears have been machined to provide an easy, efficient operation
  • Corrosion resistant, galvanised high strength alloy steel load chain
  • Galvanised hand chain
  • Refined streamlined design provides a reduced weight with a safety focus
  • Ideally suited for construction and/or maintenance operations
  • Chain sprocket, gear case and hand wheel cover protected by solid steel casing
  • Upper and lower alloy steel ISO hooks complete with safety latches
  • Supplied with EC Declaration of Conformity

Hoists, whether they are electric chain hoists, manual chain hoists, electric wire rope hoists or electric belt hoists are all manufactured with 10 years of serviceable life before a major overhaul or replacement is required. The ten year service life may not necessarily be a physical ten years of operation, but may be used up more quickly or slowly based on how the machine is being operated during its working life.

In order to help evaluate the working life of a hoist you need to be able to calculate how much of the original manufacturers Safe Working Period exists after your lifting operations have occurred.
