Why APPI: Moving containers filled with hazardous materials is a complicated challenge that is only compounded when it occurs in an explosive atmosphere. EHS Solutions LLC specializes in the manufacture of custom material handling equipment, and when they required a HAZLOC DC hoist on one of their specially designed hazardous material transfer carts, they turned to us for assistance.
For this project, EHS Solutions needed to minimize the mast height on the cart as well as power the HAZLOC DC hoist with a motor that met the stringent requirements of the National Electric Code (NEC) for a Class 1 Division 2 Group D explosive environment. To help reduce both height and potential sparking, we provided a strap-equipped hoist and met the motor requirements by providing a compliant DC motor that is powered by an on-board rechargeable 24 VDC battery – making the unit self-contained, fully mobile, and non-sparking.
