InterMoor UK Operations Achieve Nine-Year Safety Milestone

> InterMoor UK Operations, part of Acteon risers and moorings business, announces the completion of its ninth straight year of operation without any lost time incident (LTI). During this nine-year period, the company has performed more than 2,700 projects from three bases, five storage yards, and numerous quayside locations in the UK and around the world. “This nine-year LTI-free safety record is

Extensive J D Neuhaus Handling Equipment Range Features Explosion Protection as Standard

> The J D Neuhaus extensive range of handling equipment, including hoists and cranes are all engineered for extremes, providing safe operation in dust laden atmospheres or other explosion-hazardous areas such as the chemical manufacture and processing environments. All the JDN products, which include both compressed air and hydraulically operated units are Explosion Protected as Standard. This ensures that all JDN products are

safe for continuous and long-term operation in potentially explosive chemical atmospheres as well as the more insidiously dangerous conditions where high levels of airborne dusts exist. This can include combustible dusts, high concentrations of airborne dusts, or wherever a dust cloud is confined with an oxidant present (i.e. typically atmospheric oxygen) and particularly where there is an ignition source. The oxidation of other commonly known materials such as coal and sawdust can also be the source of a dust explosion. However, many other normally inactive materials such as grain, flour, sugar, powdered milk and even powdered metals can form potentially explosive dust cloud suspensions in a busy working atmosphere. The Profi TI range of air operated hoists

includes a total of 19 models providing lift capacities from 550lbs up to an impressive 100 metric tons. These incorporate many years of design and development, and have successfully proved their versatility and universal reliability following installations within a wide range of light, medium and heavy duty industrial workplaces. Their compressed air power supply is also utilized for control functions. It does not initiate sparks, so providing an unbeatable advantage when hoists are operating in potentially explosive atmospheres. Even greater safety can be achieved by the prevention of sparks generated by static discharges or metal to metal friction contacts. Learn more about their products and
