Explosion Proof Lifting Equipment for Hazardous Work Settings

Bob DeBusk, Southeast Regional Sales Manager with TAWI USA, recently installed Explosion Proof Lifting Equipment at a major corporation that produces and markets chemicals and related products.

Safety Comes First in a Hazardous Area

The corporation came to Bob with the challenge of needing the ability to lift bags up into a hopper and dump them into a mezzanine, but were faced with the potential of exposure to explosive & flammable chemicals. Operating in a room with a hazardous area classiifcation means there are different needs for the lifting equipment. Because of this, TAWI has manufactured our vacuum’s motors to be explosion proof and certified safe to use in these areas.

TAWI lifts provide the high level of safety required in hazardous work settings

Bob advised the Production Engineer that by installing a TAWI vacuum lift with an explosion proof motor, they could place the vacuum’s pump in another room, thus enabling the vacuum lift to vent the exhaust into a safe area.

Since installing an explosion proof bag lifter, the corporation’s employees can now safely lift bags throughout their shift, reducing labor fatigue and eliminating the risk of a fire hazard.

“We haven’t had a recordable lift injury since installing our vacuum lift. Our staff can dump up to a pallet and a half of bags on any given shift now, which is approximately 45 bags at 50lbs each!”
– Production Engineer
