Explosion-Proof Elevators

There are many industrial environments in which a single spark can lead to disaster. In mines, chemical plants, oil derricks and other facilities, the presence of combustible gases or dust can make operating a typical elevator system a risky proposition. That’s because these systems can give off sparks that can ignite these hazardous elements. The results can be catastrophic, leading to extreme damages, lost productivity and even human casualties. This is why USA Hoist offers a complete selection of explosion-proof hoists for use in these environments. With our lineup of explosion-proof elevators, we help operators in high-risk industries keep their people and assets safe.

What Makes Elevators Explosion-Proof?

Explosion-proof elevators offer added protection against combustion in settings where the potential is much higher than normal. Common features include rubber bumpers to prevent metal-on-metal contact. Stainless steel wheels and chains also lower the risk of sparks. The elevators also may feature sealed gearing and specialized motor housings to contain those components.

By implementing these hoists in areas where volatile elements may be airborne, companies can solve their vertical transportation needs without worrying about the potential for setting off explosions. This not only ensures a safer workplace, but also helps companies comply with industry regulations.
