Why would I need a lift or hoist?

Hoists, Lifts or Basket Handling Systems on vapor degreasers are becoming essential operating equipment and standard operating procedure for many companies. The ability to load parts into a basket and then have the automated system process the parts while allowing the operator to perform other functions reduces cleaning processing errors while increasing productivity and efficiency. Operators can be completing other tasks while the vapor degreaser is processing parts.

Additionally, the hoist allows for more and/or heavy parts to be processed than would otherwise be possible by a single operator. The uniformity of cleaning process and reduced operator error makes hoists (or lifts) an excellent addition to any vapor degreasing system.

Reliance Programmable Control Logic (PLC)
Automated Basket Handling Lift System

Features

  • NESHAP Compliant - Vapor Degreasing System
  • Available where the system loads and unloads at the top (top-loading configuration) or the system loads and unloads at ground level (ground-loading configuration)
  • Several basket weight capacities available: from 75 lbs. (34 Kg) to higher weight capacities of 150 lbs. (68 Kg) - if desired
  • Light pendant and optional audible signal when the cycle is complete
  • Automated Horizontal Slide Lid
  • Emergency stop button
  • Lift system can be enclosed with clear plastic sheathing
  • Basket Handling System (BHS) has a Program Logic Control (PLC) touchscreen display:
    • Simple formatted 6" touchscreen for management to create up to 30 different part-cleaning recipes
    • Operators can select the part-cleaning recipes created by management but not change them
    • Programming is password-protected so only management can access and change part-cleaning recipes
    • Remote access ability to update programs off-site

Benefits

  • NESHAP Compliant features that minimize worker solvent exposure and enhance solvent containment
  • Save on labor costs as operator not needed to process parts
  • Consistency in the processing of parts, ensuring each part of cleaned to the same processing specification
  • Customizable with different part-cleaning recipes for different part-processing. (Example of a part-cleaning recipe: Load; 3 minute vapor dwell; 2 minute ultrasonic immersion; 2 minute vapor dwell; 2 minute refrigeration zone dwell; unload)
  • Simple Engineering and stoutness of design for durability, field supportability and ease-of-maintenance
  • Excellent Training for engineering design, start-up, shut down, maintenance and good solvent cleaning work practices
  • Easy to support in the field with accessible heating elements, replaceable ultrasonics, clear Watlow temperature read-outs, sophisticated indicator light system, simple to trouble-shoot electrical systems and updated refrigeration systems using widely available standard refrigerant
  • Cost Effective operation and maintenance
  • Compact foot print
  • State-of-the-art engineering based on a best current practices amalgamation
  • Typical Electrical Requirements: 208V or 230V / 3 Phase, 50/60 Hz.
