Chain Hoist Cranes for Hazardous Environment

Konecranes EXN electric chain hoist cranes offer an outstanding level of safety and efficiency in small-load lifting. You may already know that our chain hoist cranes utilize the strength of steel for superior performance. Fit an XN crane with an EXN hoist and EX components for an explosion-proof crane that can lift up to 10 tons.

We have the experience that only comes from years of working with equipment for explosive atmospheres. Whether you buy a new EXN crane or refit an EXN hoist, you know it is a modern lifting solution ideal for any gas or dust hazardous environment.

An even safer chain hoist crane

At Konecranes, safety is always of primary importance. Our unique mechanical configuration prevents sparks and other ignition risks under normal operating conditions. We use a motor specially designed for the EX environment and the electrical components are inside an EX enclosure.

Two-speed contactor controls and an electrical limit switch keep your load under full control at all times. You can also request anti-collision devices and bronze-coated hooks and traveling wheels for extra peace of mind.

The crane complies with the EU ATEX directives. It follows European standards for explosive atmospheres, including the EN60079 series, and can be made for IECEX approval on request.

Always flexible with your needs

The EXN crane is exceptionally good in fields such as energy production, chemicals handling, or light manufacturing. It is particularly suited for maintenance tasks anywhere with a risk of gas or dust in the air. Choose from a range of different trolleys, single or double-girder, and normal or low headroom, depending on your requirements.

Imagine an XN chain hoist crane that's safe to use in the most demanding hazardous environment - that's the EXN. Inside or outside explosive atmospheres, our chain hoist cranes perform to the same high standards you have come to expect from Konecranes.
