Wire Rope Hoists for Hazardous Environments

Konecranes EXCXT wire rope hoist cranes offer a new level of safety and convenience in industrial lifting. You may already be using the popular CXT cranes in your workshop, plant, or refinery. Fit them with EXCXT hoists and EX components and you have explosion proof EXCXT cranes lifting up to 80 metric tons.

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

Safer hazardous environment cranes

At Konecranes, we keep safety in mind all the way from concept to use. Our unique mechanical configuration prevents sparks and other ignition risks under normal operating conditions.
The motor is fully enclosed, and the electrical components are behind an EX barrier. The radio and pendant controllers are ergonomic and easy to use: simpler means safer.

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.

Still flexible with your needs

You might need a crane for handling catalyst in a chemical plant. Perhaps you require a crane to move wood in a sawmill. The EXCXT crane is especially suited to maintenance tasks in whatever explosive atmosphere you work, be it a refinery, workshop, or other industrial site. You can also get a complete crane kit, with flat cables and festoon suspension that prevents cable stress.

Imagine a CXT crane that's safe to use in the most demanding hazardous environment: that's the EXCXT. This wire rope hoist crane performs to the same high standards you have come to expect from Konecranes.
