Industrial Pneumatic Hoists

Pneumatic Hoists


Every Columbia Pneumatic Hoist features compact and efficient planetary reductions that require less input power, increasing production while minimizing hoist size and weight. Depending vane motors are compact and durable for operation in the most demanding applications and spring-applied, pneumatically-released brakes apply automatically.

Sealed construction keeps gears, shaft surfaces, and bearings lubricated - no pillow blocks that require greasing. Modular design allows drum size changes and a wide range of gear ratios and motor sizes provide the performance required for your application. A full selection of options form single-speed drum switches to synchronized multi-unit/multi-axis proportional systems put you in full control.

Application Considerations

Determining the required line pull is the most important factor in selecting the proper winch or hoist for your application.

More Information on Determining Line Pull >>

Line speed is the distance the load travels over a given amount of time.

More Information on Determining Line Speed >>

Horsepower is a measurement of the rate (line speed) at which work (line pull) is performed.

See More Information on Horsepower >>

Travel distance is the distance the load must move. Determining travel distance is more difficult in positioning systems, when using multiple pieces of line or when line stays in the system.

More Information on Travel Distance >>

Wire rope size is determined primarily by the weight of the load being pulled or lifted.

More Information on Wire Rope Sizes and Break Strengths >>

The duty cycle of a winch or hoist is a measurement of how often it is used in a given amount of time.

More Information on Determining Duty Cycle >>

To prevent excessive wire rope wear and damage and ensure the safety of operators, a location that permits proper fleet angle is necessary to let the wire rope spool uniformly onto the drum.

More Information on Fleet Angle Considerations >>

The temperature, humidity, exposure to elements, ventilation, and elevation can all play in a role when specifying the proper winch or hoist for the job.
