INGERSOLL RAND AIR BALANCERS are used not only to lift and lower objects, but to also “float” the load, allowing for precise movement and placement without the “skipping” effect associated with traditional air hoists. Air balancers operate within a capacity range of 50 to 2000 lb (Note: Reeved tandem balancers are required to reach the upper levels of this range). In addition to their precise load spotting abilities, Ingersoll Rand Pneumatic balancers are much quieter and use a fraction of the air when compared to traditional pneumatic hoists. Air balancers frequently serve as the cornerstone for a broader egronomic handling system.
INGERSOLL RAND SPRING BALANCERS are for applications where the load travels a relatively short vertical distance (i.e. assembly tools, power tools, welding guns). These balancers can support weights up to 363 lbs. Spring balancers are typically adjustable by tightening or loosening the tension of the internal sping via an external knob or crank.
