Moving larger or heavier containers from height is out of the scope for standard handling equipment. Where large format containers need to discharge into a vessel from above, or where they need to feed into a packaging line, a bespoke lifting system that is built to robust pharmaceutical standards offers an ideal solution.
The PalPharmaHoist from Palamatic is a custom-built mobile or static solution for lifting large and heavy drums or IBC containers. The height of PalPharmaHoist is ranging from 2m upto 11m.
A large range of container handling options can be fitted, including simple forks, drum cradle, and platforms. Each can have a range of movement options including rotation and slewing.
PalPharmaHoist is hydraulic-free, with the option of pneumatic or electrical actuation and is completely suitable for ATEX environments to Zone 1/21 T4.
Operator control is via two-handed “dead man” operation with the option to specify PLC or EPROM control.
Example application includes discharge of product into a reactor, thus removing the need for a separate platform.
