ELECTRIC LOW HEADROOM CHAIN HOISTS

electric low headroom chain hoists

We offer a complete line of worm gear driven,electric low headroom trolley
hoists. These hoists are equipped with case hardened load chain and are
available in models to lift and move loads from 1 to 24 tons. Choices of plain
push/pull, hand geared or motorized trolley drives are available to meet a
variety of applications.

• Manufactured in the U.S.A.
• 5 and 6 pocket load wheels - chain saver feature
• Durable self-locking worm drive transmission requiring little if any
   maintenance
• Sturdy steel construction
• Direct acting motor brake which sets automatically if power is
   interrupted.
• Two precision bearings per power trolley wheel minimizes traversing effort
Chester Electric Low Headroom Chain Hoists are designed for those applications where headroom is limited.
Engineered around proven designs, these hoists provide smooth, quiet, trouble-free operation in a variety of
Class III hoisting applications. Each unit is built and tested in accordance with the nationally recognized safety
standard for overhead hoists ANSI B30.16.
Standard units are furnished with 115 VAC pendant-type two or four button weather-resistant control station with
push button drop four feet less than lift. Standard controls include, reversing contactors for hoist, control transformer
(115 VAC) and terminal block in a NEMA-12 cabinet, supply voltage is 230/460 VAC, 3 phase, 60 Hz. and each
unit has redundant limit switches for both the upper and lower hook travel.
The Chester Electric Low Headroom Chain Hoist is not adjustable for varying beam sizes. Each unit is custom-built
to fit the specific beam specified in the order. Beam size, height, flange width and curve radius are required for all others.
OPTIONS:
VERSATILITY - The hoist design permits adaptation
to a wide variety of applications. The unit can be built
to suit most beams including wide flanges and patented
track.
CIRCUIT AND CONTROL - All hoists and motorized
trolleys are designed for use on 230/460 VAC, 3 phase,
60 Hz. Units for operation on 200 VAC, 575 VAC or
50 Hz system are also available.
CHAIN CONTAINERS - Chain containers can be
provided to collect the unused portion of the hoist lifting
chain when the hook is in a raised position, (optional,
extra cost).
Special-purpose hoist duty contractors are standard.
NEMA-rated contactors are available at extra costs.
ALL TYPES OF LIMIT SWITCHES - These hoists
are furnished with redundant upper and lower limit
switches. Additional switches or special arrangements
are available at extra cost.
TROLLEY DRIVES - The hoist can be furnished with
plain (push/pull), hand geared or motorized trolley drives.
SPECIAL PAINT - The hoist can be provided with
many finishes to meet customer requirements. Machine
gray enamel is standard. Epoxy coating is available at
extra cost.
LOAD-LIMITING SWITCH - An electrical (current-
limiting) load limiter is available on models with single
speed only (optional, extra cost).
TROLLEY BRAKE - A trolley motor brake can be
supplied at extra cost.
EXPLOSION-PROOF UNITS - Units are available to
meet customer specifications for equipment meeting
Class I, Group D or Class II, Groups E, F or G criteria.
Spark-resistant features are available when specified
(optional, extra cost).
PUSH BUTTON STATIONS - Some available options
include extra push buttons to provide such functions as
trolley, crane and start-stop control, tandem hoist control,
multiplestations.
All units are designed in accordance with Chester Hoist interpretation of the N.E.C. Explosion-proof
components such as motor, control enclosure, limit
switch, etc., carry the UL Label.
INCHING CIRCUIT - An inching control allows
precise settings down to a fraction of an inch each time
the push button is pressed. This control is often used for
accurate spotting of loads (optional, extra cost).

All Dimensions are in inches
P* - Min. Std. I-beam for Proper Wheel Running Clearance Only. Customer must verify their beam is adequate for the applied Loading.
H*** - From the Face of Wheel to the End of the Axle. T**-For Std. Motor and Brake Only. Hoists are designed for H-3 duty.

HOW TO ORDER: When specifying a Chester Electric Low Headroom Chain Hoist, the following parameters
should be considered. Determine the specific requirements and clearly state them when
ordering. The following checklist will be of help:
1. Load weight to be lifted. 7. Beam sizes and weight (to determine
    trolley wheel specifications)
2. Lift or reach required
3. Control drop required 8. Trolley type (plain, hand-geared or
     motorized)
4. Power supply available
5. How often load must be lifted (specify
    number of starts power cycle, number of
    cycles per hour, on-time per hour)
9. Controls (may be expressed as function,
     such as Hoist Up-Down, Trolley Forward-
     Reverse, etc.)
6. Operating environment (moisture,
     corrosive fumes, explosive vapors,
     temperature, etc.)
