Becker Mining South Africa has secured an order from Klevan Mining, the company’s distributor in the Limpopo region, for two 10 T Kito electric chain hoists, with motorised trolleys.
These robust Kito ER2 hoists are to be installed at various pump stations underground and will be used for the installation and maintenance of dewatering pumps and motors. Motorised trolleys ensure smooth, precise traversing and positioning.
“Kito equipment, which meets stringent quality and safety specifications, is known for efficient performance, low maintenance and extended service life. The strength and reliability of these hoists is in the sophisticated design and a meticulous manufacturing process,” says Rick Jacobs, senior general manager (SGM) for consumables, Becker Mining South Africa.
“The series has been designed with an inverter as standard in a dual speed hoist and trolley for improved efficiency, enhanced safety and easy operation.”
A double safety mechanism, consisting of a friction clutch and an upper-lower limit switch, ensures optimum safety and prevents hoist or load chain damage. The electromagnetic brake ensures strong braking power, while holding the load securely and push button controls offer enhanced operator comfort and reduced fatigue.
The Kito load bell, which is an optional extra feature, automatically alerts the operator if the hoist is overloaded.”
