We can also assist in keeping your crane and hoist systems in excellent operational order with quality original equipment manufacturers’ spare parts. Hasemer Materials Handling is also able to provide Third Party Inspections, in accordance with Australian Standards AS 2550.1-2011. Under this Standard, clause 7.3.4 states, “each crane shall undergo a periodic third party inspection to provide independent advice on whether the level of maintenance and repairs are in accordance with this Standard.” The independent feedback we provide analyses and reports on your crane’s current condition, maintenance adequacy and utilisation levels. Hasemer does not offer a “one size fits all” approach. Hasemer Third Party Inspections are tailored to your specific requirements and may include:

  • Detailed condition assessment and functional testing of yours or your client’s cranes and hoists
  • Review of inspection, maintenance and repair records for yours or your client’s cranes and hoists
  • Design Working Period (DWP) Analysis
  • Review of condition assessment and functional testing
  • Assessment of requirements for any future major inspection
  • Detailed Third Party Inspection report.

The strength, capability and insulation of the motor will directly impact the hoist’s ability to lift loads near to its WLL, the length of operating time and the working life of the hoist. There are two key aspects to this question:

  • The time rating of the motor – the period that it can operate at full load torque continuously without overheating. The GIS Electric Chain Hoist has duty ratings up to 60% for rated loads; and
  • The motor insulation – the highest temperature the material can withstand continuously without degrading or reducing motor life. The GIS Electric Chain Hoist has a motor insulation rating of Class F enabling it to operate at a maximum temperature of 155° C to yield an average life of 20,000 hours. Motors with class B ratings motors can only operate to a maximum of 130° C (and Class E – 120° C) to achieve the same life.

This measures the electric chain hoists’ ability to activate and deactivate its brake without causing excess wear on the chain hoist. An industry wide measure is the number of starts per hour. GIS Electric Chain Hoists have the best rating at up to 360 starts per hour. Some hoists can operate only up to a maximum of 180 starts per hour. These hoists are often less robust that the GIS chain hoist.
