Carpenter Crane hoist has developed a diverse line of hoists for a variety of applications. Through the years of experience the need for specific requirements has led to some very special modification to existing hoists as well as designing our own hoist to fit the needs of our customers.
The requirement for a clean room hoist has led to the development of over 200 components to retrofit existing hoists.
The requirement for corrosive environments has led to the development of our line of totally sealed stainless steel hoists.
The continual drive for more head room has led us to a very diverse line of hoists to fit these types of applications.
Clean room hoists
CCH has clean room hoists available from 125lb to 25 tons. Our hoists can meet the most stringent molecular contamination requirement as well as clean rooms to class 10 and pharmaceutical requirements.
CCH has developed a control package for ultra fine lifting control that is not load sensitive.
NOAA research facility
NOAA built a new facility for examining marine life, focusing on Whales and Dolphins. They needed a stainless steel hoist that could hold up the corrosive salt environment. CCH has designed a line of hoists called the “Tube Hoist”. This is a wire rope hoist with all the moving components inside of a six inch stainless steel tube. The hoist was originally designed for tight headroom applications for the semiconductor industry. It was an easy design change to make the hoist out of stainless steel and seal it for wash down cleaning.
Multi Hoist Lift
The customer needed to lift a transformer that weighed 100 tons. The problem was his existing crane could only lift 70 tons. They needed a second crane to work with the existing crane to make the lift. They determined that the runways couldn’t handle the entire load. The solution was a second crane to share the load and stay a distance from the other crane so the runways wouldn’t be overloaded. CCH built a 40 ton crane with a control system that would sense the lifted load. There was also a laser system to keep the crane far enough apart so the runways wouldn’t be overloaded. Once the lifting part was solved, they needed a spreader beam designed to share the load unequally.
Pharmaceutical and food grade hoists
CCH has hoists for the variety of applications for wet or dry GMP standards.
We have stainless steel hoists that are sealed for wash down applications. We also have hoists that are nickel plated for the harsh wipe down chemicals used for disinfecting.
CCH is a distributor for several lines of hoists. We are master distributors for Harrington and R&M hoists. We have electric chain hoists starting at 125 lbs. up to 100 ton wire rope hoists.
Along with the crane we designed the lifting fixtures for the servicing and a cart to store the fixtures on when not in use.
San Ramon Boats
Multi Hoist Lift
San Ramon boats was building a new facility and needed a crane for handling the boats.
The problem was when the boats are delivered they are stacked on a trailer. It is very difficult to off load the boats and put on their individual trailers. CCH designed a crane system that would have two bridges and each bridge would have two hoists. The operator would have the ability to operate each hoist independently, in pairs or all at one time. Each crane could be operated independently or together. This gave the operator the ability to set the rigging for each hoist and then operate the hoists together to move the boat to the new trailer. This is all done by one person with a radio remote control. San Ramon Boats was able to off load the boats faster and safer with no damage to the boats.
