Chain Pneumatic Air Balancer

Chain Pneumatic Air Balancers are primarily designed for weights exceeding 350 lbs. [159kg] or for high cycle applications. Air Balancers are used in applications where a "float" condition is beneficial. Float allows for the hands-free final positioning of an object. The up/ down speed of an Air balancer is quicker when compared to a hoist and allows for a "feathering" operation when locating the load.

Cable Pneumatic Air Balancer

Cable Pneumatic Air Balancers are used in applications where a "float" condition is beneficial. Float allows for the hands-free final positioning of an object. The up/ down speed of an air balancer is quicker when compared to a hoist and allows for a "feathering" operation when locating the load.

Reeved Cable Pneumatic/Air Balancers

Reeved Cable Pneumatic/Air Balancers are primarily designed for weights exceeding 450 lbs. [204 kg]. Reeving an Air Balancer increases the mechanical advantage of the product. Reeved Air Balancers come standard with a swiveling shackle on a pulley. When reeving an Pneumatic Balancer, the stroke length is half the length of a standard Balancer.

Reeved Chain Pneumatic/Air Balancers

Reeved Chain Air Balancers are primarily designed for weights exceeding 400 lbs. [181 kg]. Reeving an Air Balancer increases the mechanical advantage of the product. Reeved Cable Air Balancers come standard with a swiveling shackle on a pulley. When reeving an Pneumatic Balancer, the stroke length is half the length of a standard Balancer.

External Safety Retract Control

The External Safety Retract Control is an adjustable safety feature that regulates the balancer's speed of vertical travel. If a load is lost, the cable on the balancer will not suddenly accelerate upward, because the hydraulic shocks from the external retract control put resistance on the thrust bearing allowing the cable or chain to slowly retract into the air balancer. The external retract control balancer series are typically used: a) If the fixture that is attached to the balancer is light hook picking up a heavy part. b) If a part has the tendency to get stuck in the dunnage. In both these applications the retract will control the cable from suddenly accelerating up.

Tandem Cable Air Balancers

Tandem Cable Air Balancers are primarily designed for weights exceeding 700 lbs. [318kg]. Tandem Cable Air Balancers were designed to provide the weight lifting capacities of a Reeved Cable Air Balancer application, but to incorporate the extended travel benefits of a single Cable Air Balancer.

Tandem Chain Air Balancers

Tandem Chain Air Balancers are primarily designed for weights exceeding 700 lbs. [318kg]. Tandem Chain Air Balancers were designed to provide the weight capacities of a Reeved Chain Air Balancer application, but to incorporate the extended travel benefits of a single Chain Air Balancer.

Limit Switch Pneumatic Balancer

Limit Switch Pneumatic Balancers can incorporate up to (2) two spring loaded rod assemblies and limit switches to allow the ability to relay an air pilot signal when predetermined heights have been achieved. Mounted to the limit switch bracket is a 5-way pneumatic valve that is de-actuated by the position flag as the balancer travels upward. The External Safety Retract Control is an adjustable safety feature that regulates the balancer's speed of vertical travel. The external retract control is typically used: a) If the fixture that is attached to the balancer is light hook picking up a heavy part. b) If a part has the tendency to get stuck in the dunnage.

Safety Drop Stop Pneumatic Chain Balancer

The SDS Pneumatic Balancer is the safest balancer in the world. It is designed to prevent a hoisted load from dropping in the event that the primary chain fails.The SDS Balancer prevents potential injuries to your operating personnel. Pneumatic Balancers are used in applications where a "float" condition is beneficial. Float allows for the hands-free final positioning of an object. The up/down speed of an pneumatic balancer is quicker when compared to a hoist and allows for a "feathering" operation when locating the load.

Single Bridge Extension Arm with Air Balancer

Single Bridge Extension Arms enable the operator to extend beyond the working limits of an overhead rail system within a workstation. A Pneumatic/Air Balancer mounts to the extension arm allowing for a controlled lifting and lowering of loads.

Dual Bridge Extension Arm with Air Balancer

Dual Bridge Extension Arms enable the operator to extend beyond the working limits of an overhead rail system within a workstation. A Pneumatic/Air Balancer mounts to the extension arm allowing for a controlled lifting and lowering of loads.
