Crane systems manufactured by the J D Neuhaus company can be supplied with Atex classifications EX II 2 GD IIA T4 / EX II 3 GD IIB T4, with increased spark protection also available for explosion level II C. Their products are currently used in some of the most dangerous, dust-laden conditions as well as hazardous, toxic and potentially explosive atmospheres. Typical applications include mining, tunneling, foundries and cement plants, with toxic and hazardous locations including chemical processing, while oil and gas production on land or offshore involves some unique heavy-load handling requirements.
All load lift, lower and traverse operations operate off a pneumatic air-line pressure of 85psi (six bar), with optional hydraulic operating systems also available. This eliminates the potential hazards and dangers associated with electrically-powered equipment when operating within areas of high dust or humidity. The JDN range covers both single and double girder overhead travelling cranes, together with slewing jib cranes and underslung cranes incorporating purpose-designed low headroom hoist trolley designs.
