Tough, Dirty, Dangerous – the mining industry includes some of the most demanding applications and is the birthplace of the original J.D. Neuhaus air hoist.
Since this time in 1953, we have continued to improve and innovate our product offerings resulting in thousands of JDN Air Hoists deployed successfully to underground mining operations all over the world.
The underground mining industry combines every aspect of extremes. Dust, dirt, humidity, and the need to maneuver in tight spaces – lifting, dragging, and oblique pulling are all key operating conditions.
Safety is the most important challenge, as there is no room for error. Explosion protection, prevention, and spark resistance is of the utmost importance.
With decades of experience, J.D. Neuhaus hoists are designed and manufactured specifically to the requirements of the mining industry.
The pneumatic or hydraulic drive system is explosion proof – generates no sparks, needs no electricity, and is suitable for vertical, horizontal, and oblique pulling. Learn more about hazardous area – explosion proof classifications here.
The compact and robust design of the hoists includes a 100% duty rating, with minimal maintenance, ensuring the highest long term value – proven in this extreme environment.
