Features and Characteristics
Emergency Stop: Winches can be supplied with an emergency stop device as an option. This shuts off the main air supply to the winch when activated.
Precise Control: Ball valve, lever control or pilot pendent control offer variable speed control.
Polypropylene Rope: The use or large diameter polypropylene rope ensures a positive grip between the rope and capstan drum. Releasing the slack end immediately stops the pulling effort.
Mounting Versatility: The capstan winch can be mounted in any orientation to suite the required task.
Integral Silencer: The exhaust air silencer is built into the winch frame and limits the noise level to 76dB(A).
Vane Motor: Assisted vane lifting ensures maximum starting torque when starting under load.
Sealed Gearbox: The sealed planetary gearbox ensures that the most stringent duty cycles can be met. The gears are heat treated and mounted on high strength, low friction bearings.
Ease of Maintenance : The modular design of the winch allows easy access to internal components such as the motor, gearbox, and drum assembly. Common parts are used throughout the range.
