Tips and tricks
Use a case-hardened chain, not only a tempered chain. In comparison with a tempered chain, a case-hardened chain has a significantly longer service life.
Lubrication of the chain
Regular lubrication of the chain can extend the service life by the factor 20 - 50. It is important to lubricate the chain also between the chain links. A commercially available lubrication can be used here.
We have a wide range of spare parts for electric chain hoists – generations EM and GCH in stock. Through our global network of sales partners you get professional advice and the necessary spare parts promptly. These are to be removed and installed by qualified skilled personnel.
Diagonal pull of the chain hoist
The diagonal pull of loads (> 4°) should be avoided, since the chain and the chain guide are excessively worn out in this way, which can affect the safety of the system.
Wrong running direction of the chain hoist
The electric chain hoist is electrically incorrectly connected and needs to be properly connected by authorised staff.
Should the standard steel rollers be too loud or should they transmit noise into the building, we recommend plastic rollers (up to maximum 1 250 kg). For more soundproofing solutions please contact our sales team.
