Ingersoll Rand Air Balancer



The Ingersoll Rand air/pneumatic balancer is used as a hoist but offering some 'float' so the operator can manually position a component, for example, when locating an item on dowels.


The component is lowered near the desired position using the pendant control, accurately positioned by hand and then released using the pendant.


It can also be used as a tool balancer. The pendant control is removed and replaced by a pressure sensor that can be adjusted to equal out the load. This leaves the operator with a very easy to move tool that is accurately balanced.


Capacity: up to 227 kg *

Cable Length: 9144 mm (30 feet)

Stroke: 1 or 3 metres


* The full capacity is based on a 100 psi air supply, however, it can be used with a lower pressure. The capacity will reduce by 1% for every 1 psi below 100 psi.


Alternative control options are available that can sense whether the load is on or off and can be programmed to operate a clamp or grab accordingly.

air hoist


Air operated chain lifting hoists are similar in application to electric chain lifting hoists, the vane or piston operated motors maintain certain advantages according to the working environment and use.



Air Chain Hoists   Datasheet - Ingersoll Rand

Air chain hoists provide excellent power to weight ratios, especially at the higher capacities. Control options generally consist of direct mechanical rope, twist grip or a push button pendant. Other benefits of air lifting hoists include a variable speed control, no electrical circuitry, can be used in explosive environments and untroubled by unfriendly working conditions, i.e. dust, heat, humidity, etc.

The air chain lifting hoist can be supplied with a hook suspension as shown, or with a hand pushed, hand geared or air powered trolley.

Capacities: 1 tonne to 100 tonne
