At steel plant, raw iron is processed to remove impurities and to add alloying elements to from steel. Steelmaking process requires extreme conditions and the furnace in the plant operates at very high temperatures.
Since the process involves melting iron, this causes hazardous gases emitted in the environment. The working conditions are similar in other metal production factories as well. Such extreme situations demand material handling and labor movement to be reliable, quick and safe. Material handling is intensive and these kinds of facilities need elevators and/or hoists for internal transportation of raw material. In addition to material handling, maintenance of the plant is vital. In order to access the places at heights, hoist proves to be vastly beneficial.
Scanclimber hoists are highly capable of resisting extreme conditions as in steel and metal processing plants. Abrasion and corrosion are significant hazards for machines in these plants. Scanclimber hoist steel parts are all hot-dip galvanized with three layers coating which makes the hoist resistant towards corrosion as well as abrasion.
