Manual Hoist Service: An Overview

Manual hoists depend on the physical strength of the operator to move loads. The servicing for these hoists mainly includes:

  • Checking the condition of the chain or rope
  • Lubricating gears and bearings
  • Inspecting the brake system, typically designed as a friction brake
  • Evaluating the wear and tear of the hook and its safety latch
  • Assessing the condition of manual controls

Electric Hoist Service: A Closer Look

In contrast, electric hoists use an electric motor driving a series of gears to lift loads, leading to more complex servicing needs. This service involves:

  • Inspection of the same components as manual hoists
  • Detailed examination of the motor, electrical wiring, and controls
  • Ensuring no signs of overheating, corrosion, or other damage to the motor and electrical parts
  • Regular maintenance of electrical components to detect any potential insulation failures early

Objectives of Hoist Servicing

Regardless of the differences in service processes, the ultimate goal remains the same for both types of hoists:

  • Ensuring safe and efficient operation
  • Prolonging the lifespan of the hoist
  • Reducing downtime
  • Maintaining high productivity levels
