AirBalancers for Hazardous Environment

Konecranes EX ATB AirBalancer

Konecranes EX ATB AirBalancer is a unique lifting technology. Using a floating load unit, it harnesses air pressure as the power source. Any load up to 350 kilos feels virtually weightless as you move it to where you need it.

The ATEX-certified EX ATB AirBalancer is excellent for assembly processes and for repair and industrial production tasks in Zone 2 and Zone 22 explosive atmospheres. Our air balancing equipment is designed to ensure safety in hazardous environments, such as in chemical and petrochemical manufacturing, flammable liquid storages, handling of barrels and canisters, solar panel manufacturing, the wood industry, and paint shops.

Safe and fast load handling in explosive atmospheres

EX ATB AirBalancer prevents you from overloading. With uninterrupted three-dimensional movement and no jerky motions while lifting or lowering, precision is guaranteed. You also greatly reduce any risk of accidental load damage or drop.

With a 100% duty factor, EX ATB AirBalancer supports fast and continuous material handling, which helps to increase productivity. Instead of electricity, EX ATB uses air pressure as a power source, making it safer to operate and cheaper to maintain. It also creates a cleaner and quieter working environment.

EX ATB AirBalancer and Konecranes Workstation Cranes – perfect partners in material handling

We can tailor EX ATB AirBalancer to your specific needs. Choose proportional control, balancing control, or a combination of the two. In addition, air balancing equipment is compatible with a wide range of other crane systems. For example, you can use it with the Konecranes XA and XM workstation cranes, and jib cranes.

Whatever your light lifting needs, Konecranes EX ATB AirBalancer is a safe, fast, flexible, and economical alternative for explosive atmospheres.
