Clean Room Cranes


Carpenter Crane Hoist has been in the business of building clean room cranes for 17 years. Clean room cranes have some very unique requirements and require considerable expertise to provide a crane that won’t contaminate the environment it will be used in. Over the years CCH has developed a large variety of products to ensure the cranes will meet the intended cleanliness level. Many of the products we have developed are proprietary and developed from the needs of our customers.

CCH has cranes with capacities from 125 lbs to 25 tons. We build a variety of freestanding cranes as well as jib cranes and articulated arms.


Freestanding clean room cranes

Carpenter Crane has developed a line of freestanding cranes that meet the stringent California seismic code requirements with out any bracing to the building structure. CCH uses a track product made by Gorbel. The track is coated with a fusion bonded polymer. This coating is tougher than epoxy and powder coating. Over the years we have done testing and found the coating to be clean and durable. This track product is used on our 125lb cranes up our 25 ton clean room crane.


Ceiling Suspended Crane

Many times a freestanding crane is not practical. For these applications we can hang the crane from the building structure. This will free up some valuable floor space and give free movement under the crane.


Jib Cranes

Many times the most efficient way to handle a load is with a jib arm or articulated arm. These can take on several configurations. We can have them freestanding, ceiling mounted and track mounted. Many of the jib cranes we have built have been mounted on the equipment they are servicing.


Samsung Austin Semiconductor – Patent Pending

Samsung needed a way to safely service the chambers on their processing equipment. CCH was asked to develop a lifting solution. CCH has been building tool mounted jib cranes for 13 years as an OEM. With the experience we have, we redesigned and improved a similar project we had done. We were able to give them some unique features like a float control for the hoist and a radio control for the operator. A longer reach gives the operator the ability to remove a component and place it on a portable service bench for servicing.


Prince George Lumber Mill

The PG Mill was having a high failure rate on their pumps and motors due to the extremely dirty working environment of the pulp mill. The solution was to give them a way to control the environment and the contamination. We proposed a clean room for their servicing. CCH has a unique design using the crane support structure to support the clean room. CCH proposed a 2 ton clean room crane for lifting the components and a clean room with a load lock and gowning area to control the contamination.
