Ingersoll Rand Air Balancers
AIR BALANCERS allow users to not only lift the load but also “float” the load, allowing for precise manual movement and placement without the “jogging” required with traditional hoists. Air balancers operate within a capacity range of 50 to 2000 lb (22 to 909 kg).
Designed to handle virtually all your lifting, suspending and positioning applications up to 2000 lb (900 kg), Ingersoll Rand pneumatic balancers are used throughout global industry because of their outstanding productivity, ergonomics, and value. The simple design is virtually maintenance free, features variable speed up to 200 feet per minute (60 meters per minute), covers the range of 10 different spring balancers, features a continuous duty rating cycle, runs lube free and consumes only 1/8 cfm of air per cycle (50x less than an air hoist). Pneumatic balancers are available in 5 standard capacities: 50 lb (22 kg), 150 lb (68 kg), 200 lb (90 kg), 350 lb (160 kg), & 500 lb (225 kg) with 3 different control options. The standard units can be reeved and tandem reeved to handle both single and variable load applications to 2000 lb (900 kg).
Ingersoll Rand balancers can come standard with one of four different control options:
ZA CONTROL: For most pick and place and precision assembly applications. This is the most common control option, and operates like a hoist pendent with an up/down control.
B CONTROL: The B series balancers come with NO CONTROL package, and are used when integrated with handling devices that already contain controls.
BA CONTROL: For balancing a single, constant load. Perfect for tool, weld gun, or fixture suspension where the load is never removed.
EA CONTROL: Load balancing for 3 loads - High Load, Low Load, and No Load. Used primarily with Load/no load applications.
