Clean Room Hoists and Cranes
At American Crane & Equipment Corporation (ACECO), we design and manufacture a wide range of material handling equipment and systems. Some of our product offerings include clean room hoists and cranes.
Clean room equipment is used in applications that require contaminant-free environments. Clean room hoists and cranes are engineered to lift and lower materials and goods safely and efficiently without introducing contaminants into the space. We manufacture them in various designs and configurations to suit different situations, such as satellite manufacturing operations.
Types of Clean Room Hoists and Cranes
As indicated above, clean room hoists and cranes are used for lifting and lowering operations in contaminant-free environments. They are available in several variations to accommodate different application requirements. For example, clean room hoists are available in electric chain and wire rope models, while clean room cranes are available in overhead or jib models.
At ACECO, our standard clean room hoist and crane offerings are available with load capacities up to 1,000 tons. Smaller models from other reputable manufacturers are also available for purchase. Additionally, we can design, engineer, and fabricate custom hoist or crane solutions to meet highly specific or unique customer requirements. We also offer inspection, testing, repair, rebuilding, and upgrading services.
Capabilities of Clean Room Hoists and Cranes
Given the sensitive nature of materials handled in clean room environments, the equipment utilized must be designed and built carefully to avoid contaminating the space. As such, clean room hoists and cranes must comply with strict specifications and standards to be suitable for use. They must offer reliable lifting and lowering power without introducing dust, microbes, chemicals, and other potential contaminants during operation.
Applications of Clean Room Hoists and Cranes
Clean room hoists and cranes are employed in a wide range of industries, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Food and beverage
All of these industries involve handling contaminant-sensitive materials. For example, aerospace and electronics products are highly susceptible to premature failure if and when they are contaminated during their manufacture. Food, beverage, medical, and pharmaceutical products are generally intended for consumption and/or close contact with consumers. As such, contaminated products can cause severe illness or injury.
