Shannahan Crane & Hoist

Chester Zephyr Hand Chain Hoist with Extended Handwheel

The Chester Zephyr Extended Handwheel hoist is operated at a distance from the load, protecting the load from contact with the hand chain and making it easier to handle large, flat or bulky loads. Suspension may be from fixed supports or on trolleys.

Description

ALLOY STEEL FOR ADDED DURABILITY:

  • Gears and pinions are alloy steel, machine cut, heat-treated and mounted on heavy-duty roller bearings. Precision formed alloy steel load chain runs in a reversible 5 or 6 pocket load sheave.

RUGGED, LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN:

  • Standard construction features include a lightweight steel frame, heavy duty steel covers, ball bearing supported load shaft and a durable, efficient, grease lubricated planetary gear train

SMOOTH, TROUBLE-FREE OPERATION:

  • Load and hand chain guides assure smooth, trouble-free operation

PRECISION LOAD HANDLING:

  • A fast acting Weston Style brake provides smooth, positive load handling

MECHANICALLY-SEALED, GREASE-TIGHT ENCLOSURE:

  • Heavy steel housings keep out most foreign material, protecting precision-machined working parts. Sealed enclosure keeps lubrication in, making the Chester Zephyr a lifetime-lubricated hoist under normal conditions. No protruding parts prevent snagging.

DURABLE INTERNAL GEARS, PINIONS & PINION SHAFTS:

  • Internal gears and pinions are made of nickel-chromemolybdenum alloy steel. Internal gear is heat treated for durability and strength. Machine-cut teeth are heat treated and mounted on heavy-duty roller bearings. Gear and pinion shafts are made of rigidly mounted alloy steel and are surface hardened and ground.

FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE:

  • The Zephyr design is easily adaptable to meet the special requirements of most applications

LOAD WHEEL:

  • Heat-treated cast steel with spline fit to load shaft. Chain pockets are accurately formed, and load wheel can be reversed when new chain is installed to effect double life.

SHOCK RESISTANT:

  • Stamped covers made of heavy-gauge steel, two rolled steel sections in the frame and strong alloy steel suspension provide durability and shock resistance.

CHAIN STRIPPER:

  • Ductile Iron.

EASY DISMANTLING:

  • Using only a small wrench and screwdriver, operators can make periodic inspections or replace chains and parts with ease.

LOAD CHAIN GUIDE:

  • Completely shrouds load sheave, guides chain into load wheel and efficiently shields these parts from entry of foreign objects.

GEAR TRAIN:

  • Center planetary system uses modified involute stub tooth form. Gear teeth are cut from solid alloy steel blanks and heat treated for added strength.

LOAD CHAIN:

  • Made of durable steel. Links are precision formed to fit pockets of load wheel. Heat treated for high tensile strength and hardness.

HAND CHAIN GUIDE:

  • Designed to eliminate fouling and permit angular pull on the hand chain.

PINION CAGE:

  • Spline fitted to the steel load wheel shaft.

TOP HOOK ASSEMBLY:

  • Permits hoist to rock and swivel under load. Alloy crosshead rocks in rolled steel straps welded to frame. Alloy hook is heat treated. Drop-forged alloy steel hook will open before fracturing.

DRIVING SPINDLE:

  • Made of nickel-chrome-molybdenum alloy steel with machine-cut teeth. Operates on heavy-duty bearings.

BOTTOM HOOK ASSEMBLY:

  • Consists of forged alloy steel hook operating on thrust bearing with full swiveling action.

 

OPTIONAL FEATURES:

  • Track clamps, load limiters, trolley bumpers and drop stops, chain containers.

SPARK-RESISTANT OPTIONS:

  • Solid Bronze Bottom Hook, Bottom Block, Brake Ratchet and Trolley Wheels. Stainless Steel Load Chain. Aluminum or Stainless Steel Hand Chain.

CORROSION-RESISTANT OPTIONS:

  • Special corrosion-resistant finishes created specifically for operation in salt-laden or other corrosive environments.

CLEAN-ROOM OPTIONS:

  • Stainless-steel components. Grease-tight enclosure with food-grade lubricant. Food-grade epoxy finish.
