Hazardous area applications, as companies continue to change work to make it more ergonomically correct there is an increase in the need for lifts and cranes in a variety of environments. Some of these environments require wash down motors that are required for extended life in applications requiring washdown such as food processsing, pharmaceuticals, chemical manufacturers, or other wet high humidity environments. This is accomplished using NEMA 4 enclosures, and Rust-Oleum coatings to prevent rust and corrosion build-up.
Another concern for manufacturers of flammable items is to prevent sparking during their operations. In order to prevent sparking bronze washers can be inserted into all pivot points, a rubber coating can be applied on all exposed surfaces, on cranes a bronze coated load hook can be used, an air powered motor can be used to replace an electrical motor, the optional air motor can be plugged into any standard compressed air line, it is quiet, highly efficient, and meets the requirements for working in a hazardous atmosphere where non-sparking equipment must be used.
